How To Download Pokemon Isle Of Armor DLC
Pokemon Sword & Shield’s first DLC has arrived with the release of Isle of Armor, a premium expansion. This guide on How To Download Pokemon Isle Of Armor DLC walks you through the very basic steps to update the game on your Nintendo Switch so you can access the new content. Even if you have not bought the expansion pass, you can still receive Pokemon from the expansion through trades and other means.

There are only two requirements to download the new Isle of Armor DLC for Pokemon Sword & Shield. You must own the game (obviously) and you need a working internet connection. As long as you have both of these, and the game is installed, the following steps will allow you to download the DLC.

How To Download Pokemon Isle Of Armor DLC

  • Start up the Nintendo Switch or press the Home button on your controller
  • Select Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield
  • Press the + button for additional options
  • Select Software Update
  • Then select to update from the internet

Once down this will begin a download that you can track by looking at the app on the Nintendo home screen. It’s not a huge update so even on the forced wireless from Nintendo Switch, it shouldn’t take too long to update. Be aware however that after the update, the game will still need to install the DLC, which will take a few moments longer.
