Clawitzer and Dragalge were first introduced to Pokemon in X and Y and, after not being able to get them in Sword and Shield, the Isle of Armor expansion made them available once again.

Clawitzer and Dragalge were popular region exclusives in X and Y respectively, with Clawitzer a pure water-type and Dragalge a poison/dragon-type.

After Sword and Shield released with a reduced Pokedex, the Isle of Armor DLC brought some old Pokemon back to help expand the National Dex, as well as new locations and features to keep the game fresh.

Isle of Armor came to Pokemon Sword and Shield in June 2020 with new Pokemon, locations and battles.

While you were able to get Clawitzer and Dragalge before Isle of Armor, they had to be traded from another game, which isn’t ideal if you don’t have the capacity to trade with others.

That said, if you’re playing through Isle of Armor, you can find one at a decent level to use as you wish.

Though it’s not as easy as trading, here’s what you have to do to catch Clawitzer or Dragalge in Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Isle of Armor DLC.

How to catch Clawitzer & Dragalge in Pokemon Isle of Armor

To get one of these two Pokemon in Isle of Armor, you have to know that they’re each exclusive to a particular game once again. If you own Pokemon Sword, you’ll be able to get yourself a Clawitzer, or a Dragalge if you own Pokemon Shield.

Clawitzer and Dragalge are exclusive to Pokemon Sword and Shield respectively.

Luckily, though, they’re both available in the same place in their respective game, so the tips below can be used for either.

Clawitzer & Dragalge locations in Pokemon Isle of Armor

You can Surf in the following locations to catch a Clawitzer or Dragalge between the levels of 40-45 – but it’s worth noting they have a 1% rarity (making them some of the rarest Pokemon in the game) so you might have to be prepared to search for a while:

  • Workout Sea
  • Stepping-Stone Sea
  • Insular Sea
  • Honeycalm Sea
  • Honeycalm Island

Alternatively, you can find them at five-star Max Raid dens at the following locations:

  • Workout Sea
  • Stepping-Stone Sea
  • Insular Sea
  • Honeycalm Sea

Both Pokemon have a capture rate of 55, so while it’s not going to be a tough task to catch one when you finally find them, you shouldn’t take it lightly.

So that’s how you can find and catch Clawitzer and Dragalge in Pokemon Isle of Armor. Although it’s not easy, the reward is pretty substantial, with both Pokemon making for strong additions to the party when used correctly.

Complete First-Edition PSA10 Pokemon card set could sell for over $700K

An incredible, complete set of 1999 first-edition Pokemon cards is available for auction – and it’s looking like it could sell for more than half a million dollars when it’s all said and done.

The complete set is made up entirely of PSA 10s, the best possible grade one can give to a card, meaning these are in tip-top condition.

According to Goldin Auctions, who is hosting the bid, the collection includes four extremely sought-after Charizard cards. For many, Charizard is considered the holy grail of Pokemon cards.

So far, five people have put in the funds necessary to bid on the collection in two weeks. If you want to join in, you’re going to need some deep pockets – the minimum bid starts at $125,000.

Charizard is one of the rarest Pokemon cards.

The fact that there are four Charizards alone in the collection is nothing to scoff at, and could very well be the cherry on top of the pristine PSA 10 collection.

Just back in October of 2020, rapper Logic purchased the 1st Edition card for just over $226,000. But that was then, and this is now.

Goldin Auctions states they “just sold an SGC Gold Label Pristine 10 ‘1 of 1’ example of the Charizard for nearly $400,000 in their December Holiday Auction.”

Booster boxes can sell for hundreds of thousands.

While the card alone can sell for a ridiculous amount, booster box prices have also seen their value rise.

As the TGC community has continued to grow, plenty of YouTubers and Twitch stars have started spending a lot of money on booster boxes from the 90s. The end result is that costs have skyrocketed.

Earlier in December, a booster box from Heritage Auctions sold for a whopping $408,000.

Given the insanity of the current lot and just how many perfect condition cards are included, we could be seeing a brand new Pokemon record once the bidding wraps up. The only question is: Will it ever reach the million-dollar mark? We’ll have to see what 2021 has in store.
