These bundles feature the base game and everything from the Expansion Pass directly on the game card, meaning that you wont need to download the The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra.
Also included in the bundle are one hundred Poké Balls, plus codes for the Pikachu and Eevee uniforms. Both uniforms were initially offered as special purchase bonuses when buying either game and its Expansion Pass separately, so it’s cool to see physical buyers get them as well.
As nice as it is to get complete physical versions of Pokémon Sword and Shield, they’re priced in a way that doesn’t make much sense. For example, the Pokémon Sword + Expansion Pass bundle is £69.99 on Amazon. If you were to buy the game on its own from there, plus the Expansion Pass on the eShop, it actually ends up being cheaper overall.
The bundles might end up being cheaper in the future, but for now it feels like they’re designed more for collectors (or people with unreliable internet speeds).
