Pokemon Sword/Shield – The Isle of Armor doesn’t scale to your party’s level after all

Posted on June 17, 2020 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Reports emerged earlier this week that Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield would feature level scaling in The Isle of Armor. It would allow for players to experience the DLC no matter whether they just started the games or complete them long ago. By scaling, the level of your Pokemon would more closely match the level of creatures you battle in the DLC.

Unfortunately, level scaling doesn’t appear to be in place after all. This has been confirmed by initial datamining led by Twitter user Sciresm as well as player reports.


Sciresm is still going through the code, so we’ll update this post if any additional details emerge.
