Pokémon Direct - 09.01.2020 16-23 screenshot copy.jpg

Today's Pokémon Direct revealed the very first DLC expansion pass for a Pokémon game. Abandoning the long-running tradition of 'updated' or 'third' game releases such as Yellow, Crystal, Black 2/White 2, Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon for 2 expansion packs for your existing Pokémon Sword and Shield saves.

Available as the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass for £26.99 each, the two DLC packs will feature slight differences depending on which game you have, such as the Pokémon available within them.

The first pack, The Isle of Armor will see players visiting an island inspired by the Isle of Man, just off the coast of the UK. This large island is full of environments not seen elsewhere in Galar, including wave-swept beaches, forests, bogs, caves and sand dunes. Over 100 returning Pokémon such as the Talonflame, Lycanroc and Kingdra lines can be found in this area -...

It has been announced by Nintendo of America today that a new Pokémon Direct will air on Thursday the 9th of January. The presentation will be roughly 20 minutes long and begin at 6:30AM PT, 9:30AM ET, 2:30PM UK and 3:30pm in Europe.

What information the Direct will contain is unknown, but all the current Wild Area Events in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield also end on the 9th so we wouldn't be surprised if some of the news is about new ones.

This week on our sister site GameCrash is the second part of this deep dive into the history of the Pokémon franchise (as written by yours truly).

In the first part, we met the creator of Pokémon, Satoshi Tajiri and followed his life through to the creation of Game Freak - the company behind the entire series.

In this part, we look into the troubled and extended 6-year development of the original Pokémon Red & Green games - originally known as Capsule Monsters. Including the story of how a desperate need to pay the bills nearly doomed the Pokémon series before it even got off the ground - until Junichi Masuda stepped in to save it.

Today, our sister site GameCrash has received a bit of a make-over and with it, three new weekly feature series to keep coming back for.

On Mondays, GameCrash Rewind takes a look back at games from the long or perhaps more recent past. We explore the pros and cons of the games as well as how you can get your hands on them today.

This weed's first article centres on a Master System Disney classic, The Lucky Dime Caper Starring Donald Duck:

On Fridays, Version Control focusses on the era of gaming when games could be entirely different depending on which console you played them on.

The first Version Control takes a long hard look at no less than five versions of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:...

Earlier this evening the latest Nintendo Direct aired, sharing a host of information for upcoming Nintendo Switch games, services, and DLC. The Direct also featured a few pieces of information for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, such as new Pokémon, in-depth character customization options, camping and curry cooking features (which are clearly Pokémon Refresh replacements).

Following the Nintendo Direct, a new official trailer for Sword & Shield was also dropped and confirmed yet another feature: League Cards. Further still, the equivalent Japanese trailer showed off a replacement for Wonder Trade, known as Surprise Trade. This appears to be very similar to Wonder Trade but allows you to set-up random trades - both online and via local wireless - while you continue playing your game. Click through to check out the trailers!...
As promised, the fine folks at TPCi dropped a new trailer full of news, and here's the main take-aways.


The video trailer itself, for obvious reasons.
First off, the region forme gimmick is alive and kicking, with three Galarian forms revealed - and not just for genwun critters this time!

First up is the Poison/Fairy type Galarian Weezing, a creature that feeds on poison gas and emits purified air from the top-hat-smokestacks on its head - while still being able to use the toxins it absorbs as a defensive weapon. It maintains Levitate as an ability, though apparently it gets an alternate ability that has not been revealed yet. It has also not been revealed if only Weezing gets a hilarious new form or if Koffing does too.

Galarian Zigzagoon and Linoone, meanwhile, acquired a Dark type (becoming Dark/Normal)...
The official Pokémon Twitter account has announced that new information for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield is coming our way in two days, on August 7th at 2 PM BST (9 AM EST/6 AM PST).

We currently don't know if the information will be presented as a Pokémon Direct or a trailer (or something else entirely), but be sure to tune in!
