Pokemon Sword and Shield - How to Get Two Kubfu in Isle of Armor DLC

It is possible to get both Single Strike Urshifu and Rapid Strike Urshifu in a single save file. This is done by transferring Pokemon using Pokemon Home.


  • Pokemon Home (does not require paid version)
  • Secondary Nintendo profile (user)
  • Isle of Armor DLC


  1. Use your secondary Nintendo profile on your Switch and progress through the game until you get Kubfu in the Isle of Armor story. This requires you to reach the train station in Wedgehurst near the beginning of the game (after visiting Professor Magnolia’s house) to encounter Galarian Slowpoke and your Isle of Armor rival.
  2. If you wish to take on the G-Max Urshifu quest, you need to complete the main story on your other saved files
  3. After getting Kubfu from Mustard in the dojo, progress through the game until you are able to choose either the Tower of Darkness or Tower of Waters to evolve Kubfu into either Single Strike Urshifu or Rapid Strike Urshifu.
  4. Afterwards, move Urshifu to your PC’s storage box and save your game.
  5. Open Pokemon Home and put Urshifu from your PC’s storage box into the Pokemon Home Basic Box.
  6. Still using Pokemon Home, switch to your primary Nintendo profile. Get the Urshifu stored in your Basic Box and transfer it to your PC’s storage box.
  7. Launch the game using your primary Nintendo profile and progress through the DLC’s story to get a second Kubfu and evolve it to a different version of Urshifu.

    • There is no other way to get two Urshifus, if you want to get the Urshifu yourself. However, you can get the second form of Urshifu by trading for someone who has a different form of Urshifu than yours.

  1. This guide is wrong.

    You need 2 separate Pokemon Home accounts, each linked to one of your profiles on the Switch. Once you have Kubfu in your secondary profile, open up Home and put it in there, then use the phone app to trade Kubfu from your secondary Home account to the primary (you need 2 phones for this).

    If you want two Urshifus then you have to beat the DLC within the secondary profile’s game and evolve it first before doing the transfer.

    • Jern is incorrect, you can access all user’s profiles from one user’s pokemon home account. Yes you need to beat the dlc to get gmax urshifu… the article says so…

  2. I don’t get it – how do you switch profiles while using Pokémon home? Console asks me to close app to change profile

    • Hi Niph, on pokemon home if you go to the pokemon button, you should be able to select which user wants to connect to pokemon home before picking among your games/home. Press up to highlight your name and then press A. It should ask you “Do you want to check a different user’s save data?” after tapping your profile name.

      • It was the same method I did to get a second Zacian. So the DLC can be played on any account? I was afraid that the DLC would act like the Nintendo Online subscription, blockin’ content.

  3. I just wasted so much of my life trying to do this, only to learn you can not have multiple users linked to the same pokemon home account after I got the kubfu. Do NOT try this.

        • In the pokemon home app on your switch, above the list of games to look through your boxes of you can switch the account on the switch to your single pokemon home account. Once moved to the home account, you move it to the proper account. It works fine, this is how I moved Pokemon around to start with all 3 starters in a single playthrough.
