How To Get Your Pokemon To Follow You In Sword And Shield?

The much-awaited feature of getting Pokemon to follow you is now available in The Isle of Armor. How to activate and unlock it? Get the answer in this guide.

The new Expansion Pass has brought along a much-needed feature in the game. Fans have been waiting for this ability to be added and now it has been made possible. This new feature will get Pokemon to follow you in Isle of Armor. To unlock this feature, though, you have to put in some work. It’s actually a reward for completing a series of tasks. In this guide, we will explain how to get Pokemon to follow you, the trainer, in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

How to Make Pokemon Follow You in Sword and Shield?

The way to get Pokemon to start following you in the overworld is to complete Master Mustard’s dojo trials – all 3 of them. Here are the trials that you need to complete:

  • The first trial involves finding and beating three fast Slowpokes
  • The second one is all about looking for Max Mushrooms
  • And the third one will be a Pokemon battle with a new rival. In Sword, your rival will be Klara and in Shield, Avery will be your opponent. Both of these rivals have made some changes to the Battlefield , which will make for an exciting battle.

When you complete all trials by Master Mustard of the Dojo, you don’t have to do anything else. He will give you the ability to have your Pokemon trailing you as you move around the Isle of Armor. The first Pokemon that is in your party will be able to do this and won’t be limited to the Poke ball anymore. Plus, Master Mustard will give you a Secret Armor – the Pokemon Kubfu. Kubfu is a legendary fighting-type Pokemon which can be evolved to Urshifu. As you can tell, its presence is central to the Isle of Armor DLC.

This is how your lead Pokemon can follow you around on The Isle of Armor. You can whistle to make them run towards you. This surely makes for some funny moments based on which Pokemon you have. The speed of every Pokemon is different and seeing them trying to catch up to you is quite hilarous to be honest. You will surely have a great time with this new feature.

So, that’s pretty much everything to do to unlock the feature of Pokemon following you in Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor. For other important tricks, check out our Sword and Shield guides right away.
