Nintendo refunding those who purchased wrong Expansion Pass for Pokemon Sword/Shield

Posted on June 20, 2020 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

The way in which you purchase the Expansion Pass for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield has been confusing enough that some players have been purchasing the wrong one.

There’s no universal Expansion Pass. If you have Pokemon Sword, you need to buy the Pokemon Sword Expansion Pass. And if you own Pokemon Shield, you need that game’s Expansion Pass. Unfortunately, players have been mixing up the two versions on the eShop, and have incorrectly picked up the wrong version of the DLC for their games.

Nintendo at least now appears to be addressing the situation with refunds. Players who purchased the wrong Expansion Pass are advised to contact the company here. Nintendo also asks players to “ensure you select the one that corresponds with the version of the game you own.”
