Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have finally unveiled when Pokémon Sword and Shield fans will be able to get their hands on the highly-anticipated first DLC expansion pass, The Isle of Armor—and it’s a lot sooner than expected.

The Isle of Armor will be hitting Switch owners on June 17. It’s the first of two major DLC expansions coming to the series.

The trailer showcased a large part of the new world that players will be able to discover. It also gave trainers their first look at some of the popular returning Pokémon that are a part of the 100 that will be added in the first DLC.

Fans even got a glimpse of the story, the trainers they’ll be able to fight, a ton of new Gigantamax form Pokémon, and the first appearance of Galarian Slowbro.

Now all we can do is wait for the DLC to be released later this month.
