Playing Now: Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass - Isle of Armor

Playing Now: Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass - Isle of Armor

The Isle of Armor is the first expansion in the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass, and was released before the end of June!

THE STORY

The Isle of Armor expansion will take place on an island off the coast of Galar. On the Isle, you’ll find a Pokémon dojo where students learn from a man called Mustard, the longest-reigning champion in Galar history - and Leon’s former mentor!

Mustard will gift you the Legendary Pokémon Kubfu. After conquering one of the two towers on the island, you’ll be able to raise it into Urshifu.

Depending on whether you challenge the Tower of Darkness or the Tower of Waters, your Kubfu will evolve into Single Strike Style Urshifu (a Fighting/Dark type) or Rapid Strike Style Urshifu (a Fighting/Water type). 

On your adventure, you’ll also bump into Klara or Avery! Pokémon Sword players will meet Klara, a Poison-type trainer, while Pokémon Shield players will meet Avery.

GIGANTAMAX UPDATE

On your Isle of Armor journey, your starter Pokémon will get the Gigantamax ability. That’s right, Rillaboom, Cinderace and Inteleon will gain a unique appearance and G-Max move.

Grass-type attacks used by Rillaboom will change to G-Max Drum Solo, Fire-type attacks used by Gigantamax Cinderace will change to G-Max Fireball, and Water-type attacks used by Gigantamax Inteleon will change to G-Max Hydrosnipe!

Each of these attacks deal more damage than a typical Dynamax move and ignores the opposing Pokémon’s Ability.

PURCHASE PERKS

Trainers who purchased the Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass or the Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass early (soon after the launch of The Isle of Armor expansion) received Leon’s cap and tights as an in-game bonus! Players who pre-purchased received Leon’s cap and tights, plus an exclusive Pikachu uniform and Eevee uniform for their trainer too. 

LEAGUE CARDS

Pokémon Trainers in the Galar region make in-game League Cards to introduce themselves. As Trainers progress in their adventure in The Isle of Armor, there will be backgrounds, effects and frames that weren’t previously available! Players can also change their League Card using Rotomi’s Card Maker feature and use these new designs, outfits and hair styles to create their unique League Card. 

RETURNING POKEMON

Older Pokémon are being added alongside each expansion! The Pokémon are included as free updates, so you don’t need to purchase the Expansion Pass to grab ‘em! You can import the Pokémon via Pokémon Home or receive them through trades. Unfortunately, the returning Pokémon will only be encountered in the wild if you own the Expansion Pass.
