    Pokemon Sword and Shield's Isle of Armor DLC brings Pokemon following their trainers back, but it will take some work before the feature unlocks.

    One of the most popular features of the Pok√©mon franchise is allowing the player to have their Pok√©mon follow them. Pok√©mon that follow the player made their debut in Pok√©mon Yellow, making a welcome return for HeartGold and SoulSilver and the Let's Go series. Although the feature was inexplicably excluded from the base game of Pokemon Sword and Shield , o DLC The recently released Isle of Armor brings back Pok√©mon following their trainers.



    Players have loved having their favorite Pokémon follow them since the feature was first introduced. As such, the inclusion of Pokémon following their trainers in Sword and Shield's Isle of Armor DLC is a big selling point for returning fans. Unfortunately, Isle of Armor doesn't allow players to have their Pokémon follow them from the start. Players will have to do a little legwork if they want their Pokémon to follow them, but they won't have to do anything too difficult. Here's how to make Pokemon follow the player in Pokemon Sword and Shield's Isle of Armor.

    The first step in getting the Pok√©mon to follow the player is to take the train to Armor Island. The feature only works on Isle of Armor and needs to be unlocked by playing the DLC story. Once the player has arrived on the island, unlocking the ability to have Pok√©mon follow them should be relatively simple. 

    The player only needs to head to the Master Dojo, where he will need to speak with the Master Mustard. After talking to him, the player will have a chance to complete three attempts, which allow the player to have Pokémon follow them after completion.


    The three attempts the Mustard Master gives the player are relatively simple to complete. The first involves chasing and fighting three fast Galarian Slowpoke. These Slowpoke can be a little tricky to pick up because their movement speed in the overworld is surprisingly fast, but Slowpoke are not hard to find because they leave a trail of dust behind them as they run. Afterwards, Master Mustard has the player hunt down three Max Mushrooms, which Mustard says can be found in the Warm-Up Tunnel - as part of the second trial. Test number three is the most straightforward of the three because it's just a battle between the player and their respective version's rival and nothing more.


    Once the player completes all three attempts, he must speak to Master Mustard in the Master Dojo once more. This is the final step for players who want to get their Pokémon to follow. When spoken to, Mustard gives the player the new Fighting-type Bear Pokémon, Kubfu, and subsequently gives the player permission to have their main Pokémon follow them around the Isle of Armor.
