Pokémon Sword and Shield: Every Isle of Armor Pokémon We Know So Far

Thanks to a couple of reveal videos, we know of over 55 Pokémon entering Sword and Shield via the Isle of Armor DLC.


Set for a June 2020 release for months, Nintendo has finally announced that the Isle of Armor expansion for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will arrive on 17 June.

Following the initial announcement back in March as well as a video accompanying the release date reveal, we now know several of the Pokémon arriving with the Isle of Armor DLC.


So, what are we to expect from the Pokémon Sword and Shield expansion, and which Pokémon will be brought into the game?

What to expect from the Isle of Armor

The Isle of Armor is said to introduce a new map which will be even bigger than the Wild Area of the base games, featuring several different biomes.

The storyline running through the expansion centres around a dojo, where you’ll meet Leon.

As the former champion of the Galar region, you will follow Leon’s teachings and meet the enigmatic new legendary Pokémon Kubfu.

The fighting-type Pokémon has the ability of Inner Focus, which means that Kubfu won’t flinch unless Focus Punch is used. Also, its stats won’t be lowered if subjected to the ability Intimidate.

Kubfu evolves into Urshifu, which can take two different forms: Single Strike Style or Rapid Strike Style. Which Urshifu form you get depends on which of the Towers of Two Fists you enter.

Along with Kubfu and Urshifu – which can Gigantamax – all three of the starter Pokémon from Sword and Shield are getting Gigantamax forms.

Joining the mighty Gigantamax Charizard are the new forms of Gigantamax Venusaur and Gigantamax Blastoise.

Based on the expansion pass trailer, you may have to choose between a Gigantamax-ready Bulbasaur and a Gigantamax-ready Squirtle.  

Several other favourites from across the generations of Pokémon are also joining the fold, including the likes of Scyther, Politoed, Luxray, Druddigon, and Lycanroc.

Furthermore, as you may have assumed from seeing the Galarian Slowpoke in Sword and Shield, there is also a Galarian Slowbro. It’s pink, purple, and has a shell stuck to its left arm instead of its tail.
