The Pokémon Company International and Game Freak have revealed more details about Galarian Articuno, Galarian Moltres and Galarian Zapdos.

These Legendary Pokémon bear strong resemblances to Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos, and will appear in The Crown Tundra, the second part of the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass.

“These Pokémon seem to bear Ice-type, Electric-type, and Fire-type characteristics, respectively, and were previously thought to be the same as the Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres seen in other regions,” The Pokémon Company International explains.

“Recently gathered data from reported sightings and other sources about the Pokémon have bolstered the theory that they are, in fact, distinct variants.”
