Revealed in the latest Pokémon Presents presentation, Game Freak has finally revealed the DLC’s release date on Nintendo Switch. The new DLC will take fans to a new areas outside of the Paldea region to fight new foes.

DLC 1, The Teal Mask, takes players to an all-new open world where they will experience a brand-new story, new Pokémon and deep quests. It’s a true expansion of the base game’s story with its own legendary Pokémon.

In the expansion, you’ll meet new Pokémon such as Dipplin, a new evolution of Applin as well as three hero Pokémon. The story revolves around the Festival of Masks, a traditional Japanese festival that will lead you to the game’s legendary creature.

The Indigo Disk is a much different experience. This DLC takes players to a new island that will feature a terrarium filled with Pokémon, as well as introducing new legendary creatures to experience.

As an exchange student of Blueberry Academy, you’ll explore a Savanna Biome, Canyon Biome, Polar Biome and Forest Biome, artificial lands created to house new and returning creatures from previous games.
