Pokémon Sword and Shield leak reveals new abilities and items for Isle of Armor DLC

Pokémon Sword and Shield dataminers have discovered new abilities and items stashed within Pokémon Home, pointing towards their inclusion in the upcoming Isle Of Armor expansion.
Pokémon Sword and Shield leak reveals new abilities and items for Isle of Armor DLC

While it’s unknown when exactly Pokémon Sword and Shield’s first DLC Isle of Armor will arrive in June, it seems it could be much sooner than anticipated. 

As shared by Twitter account Centro Pokémon Leaks, dataminers have apparently found new items and abilities in the latest version of Pokémon Home - the sharing service which allows transfers between various Pokémon titles. 

Two new abilities were found titled Quick Draw and Unseen Fist. The latter is directly attached to Urshifu, who players will receive in Isle of Armor, while the other is unknown. The name ‘Quick Draw’ however suggests some kind of speed boost to attacks. 

They also listed a number of items found in Pokémon Home, which will also likely be added when Isle of Armor releases. You can check them out below. 

  • Max Honey
  • Max Mushrooms
  • Galarica Twig
  • Galarica Cuff
  • Style Card
  • Armor Pass
  • Exp. Charm
  • Armorite Ore
  • Mark Charm 

Earlier this month, the same source discovered 21 new moves following an update to Pokémon Home too - so they have a history with dishing out Pokémon leaks.

  • Expanding Force
  • Steel Roller
  • Scale Shot
  • Meteor Beam
  • Shell Side Arm
  • Misty Explosion
  • Grassy Glide
  • Rising Voltage
  • Terrain Pulse
  • Skitter Smack

  • Poltergeist
  • Corrosive Gas
  • Coaching
  • Flip Turn
  • Triple Axel
  • Dual Wingbeat
  • Scorching Sands
  • Jungle Healing
  • Wicked Blow 
  • Surging Strikes

The only move officially confirmed to arrive in Sword and Shield is Jungle Healing, which is tied to new mythical Pokémon Zarude

Over 200 old Pokémon are set to be added across both expansions Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra in a free update, which will also add new Gigantamax forms for the starters. 

Could these leaks suggest Isle Of Amor is on course for an early June release? We’ll have to wait and see.
