Pokémon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor: Every new Pokémon and Gigantamax form confirmed for expansion

Pokémon Sword and Shield’s Isle of Armor expansion is mere weeks away, so here’s every new and old Pokémon arriving in the new update.
Many players were left irked when Pokémon Sword and Shield released without the full Pokedex last year, but it seems the two new expansions are going some way to rectify the situation. 

The first expansion titled Isle of Armor will introduce new monsters and will make a handful of classic oldies available too, while introducing some new forms too. 

Need a handy breakdown of every Pokémon old and new coming in Isle of Armor? Brace yourselves for the list. 


New Pokémon in Isle of Armor

  • Ability: Unseen Fist
