Players can now have a Pokemon accompany them on the field at any time, any Pokemon, as long as you are on the Isle of Armor.
How To Have Your Pokemon Walk With You In Isle Of ArmorThis is directly tied to story progress. When you first arrive on the Isle of Armor follow the main story, completing challenges for the Dojo Leader. Once you have completed all of the challenges and received a special Pokemon, the Dojo Leader will have one final reward for you.
He will allow you to have any one single Pokemon walk outside their Poke Ball and accompany you on your travels. Once this feature is unlocked, you can change it to any Pokemon.
