How To Get Kubfu?

Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon Sword and Shield
Last Updated:

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 and Urshifu. 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 Story!

In order to obtain Kubfu, the Pre-Evolution of Urshifu, players will need to complete all three Trials that Dojo Master Mustard assigns. Mustard will tell his students that by completing all three trials that they will earn the Secret Dojo Armor; however, after doing so, you will come to find that Kubfu is actually the Secret Dojo Armor! Kubfu is pure Fighting Type Pokemon and will be received at Level 10. But by the end of the Isle of Armor Story, players will have their Kubfu evolve into Urshifu!

Since Kubfu will be received as a Gift Pokemon at Level 10, players will need to do their best to train Kubfu in order for it to grow strong in both strength and friendship with its trainer. Players can do this by exploring and battling with Kubfu, but this can take quite a bit of time. This isn't that great of problem if players are playing Pokemon Sword & Shield for the first time with the Expansion Pass, but for players that have already finished the main story, this could be quite annoying. Luckily, Kubfu can easily be trained by use of EXP Candy!
