The Isle of Armor, Pokémon Sword and the first major expansion of Shield, will launch on June 17 for Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo revealed the date in a detail-filled trailer, alongside several new creatures that you will meet in that expansion and their sequel The Crown Tundra.

Of particular interest are two new legendaries in the Regi family – the electric Regieleki and Dragon type Regidrago. These will be available in The Crown Tundra when it arrives later this year.

Nintendo has now also officially confirmed the Galarian Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres regional variants that gleamed in works of art earlier this year. These are the first regional versions of any legendary creature.

When the Isle of Armor arrives later this month, you'll be able to create a new "Max Soup" of rare items that won't allow Gigantamax on certain Pokémon. (Which should help to find these in the wild.)

Here's how it all looks in action:
