Pokémon Sword & Shield has been ticking off a subset of fans since its announcement, and that outrage has been refueled by the reveal of an upcoming expansion pass.

The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra will be arriving in DLC packs starting June, and the pass to access them costs $30. Some are viewing this as a paywall, while others point out it's better than releasing the same game with new content bolted on - a series tradition.

The main problem here is that Pokémon, as a series, is one long con that grandfathered in a rather slimy business model, and if people are mad now, they would do well to examine decades of cynical double dipping through a new lens.
