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.

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:
