Pokemon fans all over the globe are already itching for the Crown Tundra Expansion Pack, wishing it will land in Rapidash speed. It comes as the second set of downloadable content (DLC) for the Pokemon: Sword and Pokemon: Shield games, and will allow trainers to explore a brand new landscape filled with icy mountains with a festive glisten. 

Alongside the new areas, trainers will also be able to find new Pokemon within the game, such as Glaarian Slowking, an evolved Slowpoke who'd been bit by a stray Shellder. Gigantamax Melmetal will also be available, as the 82" steel Pokemon will be able to use its "flexible and elastic liquid-metal body" to trade blows with opponents, even if they try and social distance themselves. 

So, with many additions, when can you get your hands on the pack and train to be the new Ash?
