How to Start the Isle of Armor DLC in Pokemon Sword and Shield
To start the Isle of Armor DLC in Pokemon Sword and Shield you'll need to head to Wedgehurst train station, the same one you can encounter Slowpoke inside. Once you go in, speak to the new character standing to the right side of the ticket barrier. He'll ask where you want to go, and that's when you select Armor Station. Now you're on your way!
What Level Do My Pokemon Need to Be to Play the Isle of Armor DLC?
The Isle of Armor doesn't have level restrictions or recommendations, as Nintendo have introduced level scaling to ensure that the difficulty and challenge matches that of any player, regardless of team strength and progress in the main game.
Isle of Armor Expansion Not Working
If you haven't got the figure at Wedgehurst showing up, you might not have the current update. Close the game, go to the homepage of your Switch, and press the + button to open the options menu for Sword or Shield. Then go to Software Update, and select "Via the Internet." Assuming your Switch is online and you have the expansion, the game will download an update and everything should work fine!
