It may come as a bit of shock, but there are only three brand New Legendary Pokemon
that come with the Isle of Armor Expansion Pass
. One of those Pokemon is Zarude
, the very first Mythical Pokemon announced for the 8th Generation
of Pokemon. However, since Zarude is a Mythical Pokemon and those can only be obtained by a Wi-Fi Event, that means that a player can only obtain two Legendary Pokemon during the gameplay of the Isle of Armor.
These two other Legendary Pokemon are Kubfu
. If the names don't seem similar enough, it turns out that these two Pokemon make up only the second Legendary Pokemon Evolution Chain (the other being the Solgaleo/Lunala Evolution Chain of the Alola Region). That's right! Kubfu actually evolves into Urshifu, meaning players will ultimately only have one New Legendary Pokemon
by the time they finish the Isle of Armor
Players will obtain Kubfu
as a Gift Pokemon
after defeating all of Dojo
. After they do, they will be tasked with growing in both friendship and strength with Kubfu. After visiting all the necessary locations on their Town Map with Kubfu, Mustard will allow a player to take on one of the two Tower of Fists with Kubfu in order for it to evolve. Should Kubfu, at this point, be at Level 30 (if you haven't completed the Pokemon Sword & Shield
Story) or Level 70 (if you've already completed the Pokemon Sword & Shield Story), players can take on either the Tower of Darkness
or Tower of Waters
. By defeating whichever tower they would prefer, players will be able to evolve their Kubfu into Urshifu
. Players will get Single Strike Urshifu
by defeating the Tower of Darkness, while getting Rapid Strike Urshifu
by defeating the Tower of Waters.After evolving their Kubfu into Urshifu, Mustard will tell of Urshifu of being able to Gigantamax when in battle.
Unfortunately, he won't explain how to make the perfect Max Soup
in order to do so. Instead, players will need the help of Hop to find the Sticky Honey needed to be mixed with Max Mushrooms to make the perfect batch of Max Soup for Urshifu.
Players will head to the Forest of Focus
with Hop to find the exact type of Nectar
needed, but after that leads to a dead end, players will go to Honeycalm Island
to get Honey
from Vespiquen. After defeating Dynamaxed
Vespiquen, players will finally obtain the Sticky Honey needed!With the Sticky Honey and Max Mushrooms, players can return to the Master Dojo and whip up the perfect batch of Max Soup in order for Urshifu to be able to Gigantamax when in battle.
This will also come in handy as the final battle within the Isle of Armor
Story sees Mustard
having a Gigantamax Urshifu of his own!Click Here to learn how to get both Urshifu Forms!
