Those exploring the Isle of Armor will soon bump into Digging Pa and Digging Ma in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.
The parents of the Wild Area’s Digging Duo, you can hand these characters the Armorite Ore that you have collected for the chance to receive randomised rewards for your efforts.
Digging Pa’s location is in the Training Lowlands, where he will offer you Watts in exchange for the 7 Armorite Ore that he requests from you.
The amount of Watts is randomised from 800 to 8,000 Watts, but, sometimes after he collects them, Digging Pa will have another surge of energy that could see you receive more.
This has been identified as the quickest way to help you build up the Watts needed to unlock every Master Dojo upgrade, or to purchase Wishing Pieces.
For those looking for Digging Ma’s location, this is randomised. For one Armorite Ore, Digging Ma will excavate a nearby area with the chance that you can receive more Armorite Ore in return.
You will need to stop Digging Ma before her shovel breaks, as, once it is broken, you will receive no Armorite Ore.
The list of Digging Ma locations are:
- Brawler’s Cave
- Challenge Beach
- Challenge Road
- Courageous Cavern
- Fields of Honor
- Forest of Focus
- Honeycalm Sea
- Insular Sea
- Loop Lagoon
- Potbottom Desert
- Stepping-Stone Sea
- Training Lowlands
- Warm-up Tunnel
- Two places in the Workout Sea
