The Crown Tundra is based on Scotland. The landmass is rotated 180° together with the Galar region itself, compared to real-world Great Britain. Therefore, the Crown Tundra is the southernmost part of Galar while Scotland is the northernmost country of the United Kingdom.
The design of the Crown Tundra is heavily inspired by the history and landscape of Edinburgh, capital of Scotland. The Crown Shrine is based on the Edinburgh Castle. Freezington, the area's gateway and major settlement, resembles typical villages found in the Scottish Highlands.
Although the Crown Tundra mainly hails, particularly in the northern area, the weather varies between areas, and each area changes weather when the date changes. The weather determines which wild Pokémon can appear, and it may cause certain weather conditions and terrain to appear in battle. Sandstorm is the only kind of weather not present on the Crown Tundra. Special dates listed below are known dates where the entire region will be forced to have the exact same weather condition.

In the anime
The Crown Tundra first appeared in The Homecoming Crown!. While Ash, Goh, and Chloe traveled there to inspect reports of an unknown Pokémon being sighted in the area, Lillie and her family located her missing father Mohn there. The two groups ended up meeting at a remote house, where Mohn had been living ever since a Shiny Nihilego had rescued him from Ultra Deep Sea, believing the Ultra Beast to be Lillie. Once Mohn's real memories had been restored, he reunited with his family and invited Nihilego to come with them.
In Chasing to the Finish!, Goh revisited the Crown Tundra in order to participate in his last Project Mew Trial Mission at the Split-Decision Ruins. On the site, he was joined by Gary, and they succeeded in completing the mission by catching Regieleki and Regidrago.
Pokémon: Twilight Wings
The Crown Tundra appeared in The Gathering of Stars, where Peony and Peonia were traversing through it aboard a train.
In the manga
Sword & Shield chapter
The Crown Tundra was first mentioned in PASS30. Following the disappearance of Henry and the Rusted Sword and Shield after the battle against Eternatus, Casey was able to figure out that one of the artifacts had wound up at the Crown Tundra, though she was unsure if Henry was there too or at the Isle of Armor.
