The Isle of Armor is the first of 2 planned DLCs for Pokémon Sword and Shield. It brings new characters, an entirely new area, and various Pokémon. With the help of our Pokémon Sword and Shield guide, you will be able to learn everything you need to know about how to start the Isle of Armor DLC.
How to Start Pokémon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor DLC
Before we begin, you will need to buy the DLC from the Nintendo eShop. It should cost you $29.99 USD. Once done, you will need to download the latest update which is v.1.2.0. With the update downloaded, you should be ready to jump into the Isle of Armor.
Load up your saved game and you will be notified about having an Armor Pass. After loading into the game, travel to the Wedgehurst Station. Do note that you need to have the Wild Zone unlocked in the game to be able to travel to the Isle of Armor.
With these requirements fulfilled, you will need to speak to the man in the green outfit. Choose to travel to the Isle of Armor whenever you are ready and begin the next chapter in your journey. You should have a brief cutscene during which you will be introduced to either Klara or Avery, based on which version of the game you own.
This is how you can start the new DLC in Pokémon Sword and Shield. For more help on the game, you can check out our detailed Pokémon Sword and Shield wiki guides.
