How to Quickly Upgrade the Dojo in Pokemon Sword and Shield Isle of Armor DLC
To upgrade the Master Dojo in Isle of Armor you'll need to have a huge amount of Watts, which can be spent to add new features to the Dojo which in turn can help you train your Pokemon or get new items/options. The option to unlock Dojo upgrades begins after the completion of the third Dojo trial, whereupon Honey will be on the right side of the main Dojo training room, close to your bedroom. Talk to her and you can begin to spend watts for tiered rewards.
All Dojo Upgrades
There are a total of 14 upgrade tiers, each one of which unlocks some new reward, event, feature or option based around the Dojo. We've laid them all out below.
|5000||A hairstylist is added to the Dojo (accessible through your room).|
|10,000||An unusable PC terminal is added to the Dojo.|
|20,000||The PC is fixed.|
|30,000||A vending machine the player can use appears in the Dojo.|
|40,000||Soda Pop is added to the vending machine.|
|50,000||Lemonade is added to the vending machine.|
|100,000||Cooking ingredients are added to the kitchen refrigerator.|
|200,000||Protein and Iron are added to the vending machine.|
|300,000||Calcium and Zinc are added to the vending machine.|
|400,000||HP Up and Carbos are added to the vending machine.|
|500,000||A Dojo-themed background for your league card.|
|800,000||The player receives Honey's League Card.|
|1,000,000||The player may battle Honey once a day (see more below).|

How to Make Watts Quickly
The fastest way to make watts in Isle of Armor is to talk to Digging Ma, the NPC dressed as a miner who can be found around the Isle of Armor, and give her Amorite Ore to dig up watts for you. Depending on your luck, she could get you hundreds of thousands of watts each team, making those higher-tier rewards much more plausible.
How to Unlock and Beat the Secret Honey Boss Battle
After spending 1,000,000 watts total you'll unlock the option to battle with Honey once a day! Talk to her for the option, and she'll escort you to the arena outside, allowing both of your Pokemon to Gigantimax. We've laid out her full team below, as well as what weaknesses they have.
|Darmanitan (Galarian)||58||Fighting, Rock, Steel, Fire|
|Salazzle||58||Psychic, Rock, Water|
|Gallade||59||Ghost, Flying, Fairy|
|Togekiss||60||Poison, Steel, Rock, Electric, Ice|
|Blastoise/Venusaur (Gigantimax)||60||See below|
Earlier in the game when choosing whether you wanted Bulbasaur or Squirtle, Honey mentions that she'll look after whichever Pokemon you didn't pick. Now we see what she means, as the evolved form of the remaining starter is her final and most powerful Pokemon, one she'll Gigantimax at the climax of the fight. If it's Venusaur, it'll be weak to Psychic, Flying, Ice and Fire. If it's Blastoise, it'll be vulnerable to Grass and Electric attacks. Otherwise we recommend having Pokemon with some powerful Rock-type moves, as half her team have vulnerability to Rock, and the Blissey will struggle to do any damage to Rock Pokemon.
There aren't any real rewards for beating Honey besides a decent cash prize of 9,600 Pokedollars. You can also battle her once a day from that point on.
