Welcome to IGN’s guide on how to access Pokémon Sword and Shield’s Crown Tundra DLC. The DLC can be accessed by purchasing the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass, updating the game, then following certain steps. Try manually updating your game if it doesn’t automatically do so.
Upon loading your save, after purchasing the DLC and downloading the latest update, you will automatically be given a Crown Pass which can be used at Wedgehurst Station to access the new area.
Fly to Wedghehurst and enter the train station, then speak to the man next to the PokeMart to take a train to the Crown Tundra Station.
Choose to leave to The Crown Tundra, and the train will take you there. Head to the Crown Tundra Walkthrough to continue your journey!
