When you start playing the Isle of Armor DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield, it won’ t be long till you get your hands on the insanely adorableKubfu Kubfu will play quite greatly into the story of the Isle of Armor, so we do not want to drop a lot of spoilers here. Something that people are questioning, nevertheless, is if Kubfu is Shiny locked.
At the minute, it would appear that Kubfu is indeed Shiny locked, and will not be a Shiny, so there is little point in attempting to save- scum the minute when you get him in thegame According to dataminer SciresM, you won’ t have the ability to get a Shiny Kubfu to drop this way.
To make things even more intriguing, according to another dataminer, you also will not have the ability to reproduce Kubfu with a Ditto, and you won’ t have the ability to reproduce their evolved kind of Urshifu with a Ditto either.
This will be frustrating news to people who wish to attempt and get their hands on a Shiny Kubfu, however it is necessary to keep in mind that this is all datamined information which might prove to be inaccurate, or end up being changed in a future patch.
We also do not know if this is the only way to get a Kubfu today, so we will be digging through the game ourselves to see if we can find another source for the adorable little Legendary. We will be upgrading this guide as we discover more about Kubfu and the possibilities of getting a Shiny.
