How to Get Armorite Ore
What is Armorite Ore?
Armorite Ore is a rare item used to allow Pokemon to learn new moves from the Isle of Armor move tutor or exchanged for Watts. It can also be used to reset your Pokemon’s effort values (EVs).
Armorite Ore can only be obtained in the Isle of Armor DLC.

Armorite Ores are found as shiny items while exploring the Isle of Armor wild area.
Isle of Armor Main Story
You are also given five Armorite Ores in the Isle of Armor dojo when you progress through the DLC’s main story.
Max Raid Battles
Armorite Ores can also be received as rewards by clearing Max Raid Battles. For a greater chance of obtaining them, it is recommended to particiapte in Zeraora Raid Battles which are only available until June 28.
Two NPCs called Digging Pa and Digging Ma can be found in the Isle of Armor. While talking to Digging Pa lets you pay him Armorite Ore to dig up Watts, speaking to Digging Ma allows you to spend Armorite Ores to dig up more Armorite Ores. Note that when Digging Ma’s shovel breaks, you will not get anything, likening her service to a gamble of Armorite Ores.
Digging Pa and Ma are found in separate locations. You can spot Digging Pa near the entrance of Warm Up Tunnel while Digging Ma constantly moves around the island.
