It’s part of the story, shortly after you are given a very important choice. It’s made quite clear at the time what is involved but if you want to know more, read on.
Where To Find Kubfu In Pokemon Sword & Shield Isle Of ArmorWhen you first receive Kubfu you have to complete a test of friendship. After you have become friends and returned to the Dojo, Mustard will take you on a stroll. Here he will give you an important choice. You will need to choose the Dark Tower or the Tower of Water. The decision you make directly influences the outcome of Kubfu’s evolution.
You can only pick one tower, either the Tower of Darkness of the Tower of Waters. It makes Kubfu’s evolution a Fighting/Dark or Fighting/Water respectively. Ultimately the choice is yours, depending on which type combination you would rather have in your party. Kubfu is a Legendary Pokemon, which means you are unable to breed it, so you can only choose one tower and you’re stuck with that choice. It’s possible to get both via trade but that’s currently the only method to obtaining both of Kubfu’s evolutions.
