Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor DLC: How to Beat the Final Battle with Dojo Leader Mustard

After securing Urshifu's new form and returning to the Master Dojo, Mustard will challenge you to a true final battle to prove your worth.

As you come to the end of the main plot of the Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor DLC, you'll have to have a second, true battle against Mustard at his full strength, who's no longer holding anything back. We'll show you how to beat Mustard and what kind of Pokemon you can use to bring him down.

How to Beat the Final Battle With Dojo Leader Mustard in the Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor DLC

To beat Mustard, you'll want a team with good defence, as most of his team are physical attackers who utilise heavy offence. Assuming you've also beaten the Elite Four, you'll also want to have your team to be at least level 70, and probably higher. Depending on which form of Urshifu you have, it may also be worth bringing it into battle.

Mustard's Pokemon Team

We've laid out Mustard's full team below, as well as what level they are (assuming you're playing post-game) and what they're weak to.

Mustard Battle Strategy and Tips

Mustard's team is fairly diverse, though three of them have Fighting-type qualities that leave them weak to Flying and Fairy attacks. Use this to get the edge in on them - your own Urhsifu can learn Aerial Ace, a powerful Flying move that never misses.

When it comes to Mustard's own Urshifu, it'll be the evolution form opposed to whatever one you picked. If you have the Fighting/Dark Urshifu, he'll have the Fighting/Water one, and vice-versa. We've laid out Urshifu's weaknesses in either form at this guide here, but it's also worth mentioning that his Urshifu can Gigantimax, whether or not yours can, learning G-Max moves that can punch through defensive powers like Protect or Max Guard. It also knows Max Ooze, a powerful Poison attack that doesn't match up with its regular typing, so look out for that curveball.

Mustard Battle Rewards

For defeating Mustard, he'll give you 30,000 Pokedollars, and congratulate you on your victory over the Dojo! This also marks the end of the main campaign to the Isle of Armor expansion, and you'll get closing credits soon afterward (though you can still explore and battle there as much as you like afterward).
