How To Unlock Isle of Armor Pokedex In the Pokemon Sword And Shield

The first thing that you will realize is the fact that this Pokedex is different from the one that you get in the Galar region. This is extremely similar to what you get to experience in Pokemon Sun and Moon.

In this Pokedex, you will have to record all the Pokemon that have returned to the game, some of these pokemon are well known and made famous from the anime. Pokemon from all the generations are made available and there are more than 200 Pokemon that have made a comeback. You will have to update your Pokedex before you can go on your journey and discover all of the returning Pokemon.

To do this you will have to reach the Isle of Armor and meet the Pokemon researcher. Once you meet her, she will update your Pokedex and will assign you the task of finding each and every Pokemon that is making a comeback.


The next part depends on how many Pokemon you’ve caught in the game previously. The researcher will evaluate your Pokedex and give you advice on how to catch new Pokemon. To access this new Pokedex, you will have to open your Pokedex and then proceeding to select the appropriate one for the Isle of Armor.
