Basic Information

Kubfu is a new legendary Pokemon appearing in The Isle of Armor. It holds an important role in your journey in the Pokemon Dojo under your apprenticeship with Mustard.

Kubfu can evolve to Urshifu which has two different forms; the Single-Strike Style, and the Rapid-Strike Style.

How to Evolve Kubfu into Urshifu

Kubfu evolves into Urshifu when you complete one of the Towers of Two Fists. You will only be able to choose one of the towers to challenge, and when you and Kubfu clear the tower, Kubfu will evolve into either Urshifu's Single-Strike Style, if you complete the Tower of Darkness, or Urshifu's Rapid-Strike Style, if you complete the Tower of Waters.

Urshifu and its Forms

Can You Breed Kubfu?

Ditto and Urshifu

Because Kubfu and Urshifu are Legendary Pokemon in the Undiscovered Egg Group, they cannot breed, and there is no way to breed a Kubfu. Even when placed together with Ditto in the Nursery, Kubfu and Urshifu will be unable to produce an egg.

For now, it seems the Kubfu provided to the player is the only one directly obtainable; however, it is possible to trade, allowing for players to potentially obtain more than one Kubfu.

How to Get Kubfu

The Isle of Armor

Kubfu only appears in the Isle of Armor which is included in the Expansion Pass DLC for Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Mustard's Dojo

In order to receive Kubfu, you must advance the story in Isle of Armor by clearing 3 trials at the Master Dojo. Before speaking to Mustard after your final trial, saving your game will allow you to reroll for the best possible Nature and IVs if you wish.
