Shortly after its release, players have discovered a new returning feature in the Pokemon Sword And Shield Isle Of Armor Expansion.
After beating their Isle Of Armor rival for the third time in the Dojo’s final trial, players will receive the ability to set a “Buddy Pokemon” to follow them around while they are on the Isle Of Armor. Note that its only on the Isle Of Armor, following Pokemon are not available on the mainland region of Galar.
Much like previous games, the first Pokemon in the player’s party will be set as the following Pokemon. What’s more, much like with the Let’s GO games, Shiny Pokemon will have that coloration when following the player around.
Check out some screenshots and examples below:
