Legendary Pokemon detailed for Pokemon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass

The Japanese website for the Pokemon Sword And Shield Expansion Pass updated with more details about a few new Legendary Pokemon and Galarian forms that will be introduced in the expansion.

It was confirmed that the Regi trio will be joined by two new members dubbed Regieleki and Regidrago. Regieleki is an Electric-Type while Regidrago is a Dragon-Type. Both of them appear to possess brand new abilities and signature moves.


Type: Electric
Ability: Transistor
Signature Move: Thunder Cage ~ In this Electric-type special move, the Pokémon fires furious bolts of electricity from its lower half, trapping opponents directly below it in a cage of lightning. Thunder Cage doesn’t only deal damage to opponents when it lands—it will also cause them to be trapped within an electrified cage, causing damage every turn for four to five turns and preventing them from fleeing or being swapped out.


Type: Dragon
Ability: Dragon’s Maw
Signature Move: Dragon Energy ~ The Pokémon assumes a shape similar to a dragon’s head, then fires intense dragon energy from its mouth. The more HP the user has remaining, the higher the move’s power.

Galarian Legendary Birds

Next, the Galarian Legendary Birds were officially revealed. Galarian Moltres is Dark/Flying with the ability Berserk, Galarian Articuno is Psychic/Flying with the ability Competitive, while Galarian Zapdos is Fighting/Flying with the ability Defiant.

Galarian Moltres

Type: Dark/Flying
Ability: Berserk
Signature Move: Fiery Wrath ~ In this Dark-type special move, the Pokémon transforms its wrath into a fire-like aura to attack. It may also make opposing Pokémon flinch.

Galarian Articuno

Type: Psychic/Flying
Ability: Competitive
Signature Move: Freezing Glare ~ Freezing Glare is a Psychic-type special move in which the Pokémon attacks by firing psychic power from both eyes. This move may also leave the target frozen.

Galarian Zapdos

Type: Fighting/Flying
Ability: Defiant
Signature Move: Thunderous Kick

All five of these new Legendary Pokemon are expected to arrive with the Crown Tundra portion of the Expansion Pass, which is set to launch in November this year.
