Kubfu is one of the many new Pokemon that you’ll encounter as your journey across the rugged lands of The Isle of Armor, but where can you find it and how exactly does it evolve?

This fighting Pokemon may look deceptively cute, however, it packs a mean punch. Kubfu spends its days’ training, constantly trying to improve both its body and mind. 

Kubfu is exclusive to Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Isle of Armor Expansion and trainers can add this stalwart fighter to their collection from June 17 onwards.

Where to find Kubfu in Pokemon Sword & Shield


Wild Kubfu are known to inhabit mountainous regions that are far away from the Galar, but the one you’ll encounter can be found at one particular building on the Isle of Armor. Let’s run through it, step-by-step.

  1. Load up Pokemon Sword & Shield.
  2. Make your way over to the Isle of Armor in-game, after purchasing the Expansion Pass.
  3. From there, visit the island’s Dojo.
  4. Once you have arrived, you will meet Master Mustard – who will set several trials to complete.
  5. Complete those trials to unlock your first encounter with Kubfu!

Picking the right tower to visit is crucial in the Isle of Armor.

Once Master Mustard has given you Kubfu, you’ll need to challenge trainers from either the Tower of Darkness or the Tower of Waters. Both trials will certainly test your mettle and you’ll need your wits about you if you wish to succeed. 

Upon completing either of these challenges, Kubfu will evolve into its final evolution depending on the type of tower you choose. Urshifu has two forms – Single Strike Style and Rapid Strike Style.

Each form also has its own typing, so make sure you take a look at the image below before making a decision.

The evolved form will also be available in two different Gigantamax forms as well, in the Isle of Armor Expansion Pass. Here, they will also adopt different GMAX moves that will almost certainly blast many opponents away in battle.

So that’s it, now you know how to get and evolve your very own Kubfu. Make sure you check back here for all the latest Pokemon Isle of Armor news. 


Pokemon community stunned after card collection worth millions surfaces

The Pokemon Trading Card Game hobby was rocked in November when a man rediscovered his mind-blowing complete collection of the rare 1999 Base Set. The fan has stacks of every character, including hundreds of Charizards.

Despite releasing decades ago, the Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded on playgrounds and stuffed into 90s children’s binders are now selling for as much as a sports car. 

A man went viral after discovering their collection may be one of the most complete sets to ever exist. The fan’s unfathomable amount of rare collectibles could actually have an impact on the future of the hobby’s prices.

Pokemon fan discovers TCG collection is worth millions

Pokemon cards have never been more popular this year as the collectible hobby has now even taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Celebrities such as former rapper Logic are dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars to scoop up the rare Nintendo items. 

On November 22, a video went viral online of a man showing off his mind-blowing collection that has many collectors turning their heads. “Literally got all of my Pokemons stuff out of the loft from my recent move,” YouTuber PokeMans Alex explained before showing off his astonishing collection.

Holding up a stack of rare holographic cards from the 1999 base set, the fan exclaimed, “As you can see they are mint, and have not been touched for so long.” The TCG collector then revealed his unprecedented number of Charizards. “I don’t know if you are ready for this,” he warned, before holding up a stack of 111 cards of the rare starter ‘mon.

To put that into perspective, in October a PSA graded 10 of the same item is now selling for $30k alone. The content creator emptied over seven binders on his table to reveal a 1999 base set that was not only complete, but also had stacks of over 50 of the same card for every single character.“I’m ready to put all of these away back in the safe where they are now gonna stay,” he said.

Veteran Pokemon card YouTuber PokeRev reacted to the video on November 26 and exclaimed, “Did you open all these packs as a kid? It’s just an insane amount of holo cards. When we were kids, just to get a couple holos from the base set was really good. But to have thousands is insane!”

Other famous collectors such as British rapper Randolph commented, “Unreal mate.” Gaming YouTuber Ali A wrote, “How did you originally collect SO many cards!? Are you looking to sell any of them?”

At the time of writing, it’s unclear just how much the YouTuber’s incredible Pokemon haul is worth. None of the collectibles have actually been looked at by professional grading companies PSA or Beckett. And the majority of its value revolves around its condition and score.

A set of this magnitude is unprecedented and could have a severe impact on what TCG cards are worth in the future. A big factor in an item’s selling price hinges on it having a low population. PokeMans Alex’s collection could soon flood the market should he decide to get things graded.
