The Pokemon Company has confirmed that a very special and useful new item is coming to Pokemon Sword And Shield via the Crown Tundra DLC.
The item is called the Ability Patch, and can be used to change any Pokemon’s Ability to its Hidden Ability if it has one. The existence of this item was previously discovered by dataminers, but has since been confirmed to coming via the Expansion Pass’ official website.
The Ability Patch: A new useful item for raising Pokémon
In The Crown Tundra, you may get new items called Ability Patches. They’re hard to come by but worth the effort. If you use one on a Pokémon, its Ability will change to its species’ Hidden Ability, if it has one! With an Ability Patch and a helping of Max Soup from the Isle of Armor, you can bring out the Hidden Ability of the first partner Pokémon you chose at the beginning of Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield and give it the capability to Gigantamax as well.
Currently, it is unknown how Ability Patches will be obtained, or how difficult they will be to find. We will be sure to report back with more info as it comes.
