Pokemon Sword and Shield‘s Crown Tundra expansion is now live, and Pokemon Go is celebrating the DLC’s release with some new content. Developer Niantic has announced that a few new Galarian Pokemon are now available in the game for a limited time, as are new Crown Tundra-inspired avatar items.
As previously teased, Galarian Ponyta has been added to Pokemon Go. You’ll be able to encounter the new Galarian form in Raid Battles, and if you have enough Ponyta Candy stored up, you can evolve it into Galarian Rapidash.
Galarian Farfetch’d is also appearing once again in the wild, and now you’re able to evolve it into Sirfetch’d. Unlike most other Pokemon, however, Galarian Farfetch’d doesn’t evolve via Candy; rather, you need to make 10 Excellent throws while Galarian Farfetch’d is set as your Buddy in order for it to evolve. These throws don’t need to be made consecutively, so your count won’t reset if you miss or swap Buddy Pokemon.
