Guide on the Tower of Darkness in the Isle of Armor (Pokemon Sword and Shield). Includes how to beat all 5 floors of Towers of the two Fists, Mustard's Kubfu, & best moves & items!
Tower Of Darkness Overview
Kubfu Solo Mission
While taking on the Tower of Two Fists, you will only be able to use Kubfu. Make sure you train up your Kubfu before entering. The final boss will have a Lvl. 70 Pokemon, so you want to make sure you're able to compete stats wise.
One Of Two Possible Choices
You will only be able to enter one of the two towers on the Isle of Armor, either the Tower of Darkness or the Tower Of Waters. The tower you choose will determine what form and type your Kubfu will take upon evolving.
Kubfu Evolves After Beating The Tower
Depending on which tower you choose, Kubfu will evolve to Urshifu in different style. It will also gain the type of that tower when evolving too (Dark or Water).

How To Beat Tower Of Darkness
The majority of the Pokemon here are Dark types. You can easily beat them with Kubfu's Fighting-type attacks such as Close Combat.
Recommended Moves For Kubfu
If your Kubfu is above Lv. 70, you can one-hit-KO most of the opponents with Close Combat. Bulk Up is there to weave between the Protects of the Pokemon on Floor 4. Counter will help you out on the final boss.
Recommended Item - Life Orb or Leftovers
For this challenge, you can go with a Life Orb for high damage and versatility, but you'll likely need to heal frequently between floors. Leftovers is a safe option for floors #4 and #5. Alternatives to these are the Black Belt and Rocky Helmet.
Floor 1 Battle
Zorua is a pure-dark type, meaning this fight is quite straightforward; we were able to take it out with 1 Close Combat.
Floor 2 Battle
Again, use Close Combat to quickly finish Scraggy.
Floor 3 Battle
Inkay is Dark & Psychic-type Pokemon. It's not weak against Fighting but using Close Combat will still deal a decent amount of damage.
Floor 4 Battle
Heal Before 5th Floor
You will face Mustard on the final floor. Make sure you fully heal Kubfu's HP with your item before the final match.
Final Floor - vs. Mustard
Dojo Master Mustard
On the final floor, a surprise will be waiting for you - Dojo Master Mustard will pull off his old-man robes and come at you with renewed vigor. You'll have to take on his Kubfu 1v1.> Check Out Other Battles vs. Mustard Here
This battle could catch you off guard if you aren't paying attention, as Mustard's Kubfu also knows the flying move Aerial Ace. This means he'll be able to deal super-effective damage to you as well. It's for this reason that we brought Counter, so you can deal his super-effective damage back at him. Just be careful however, as sometimes it uses Focus Energy, which will waste your Counter turn.
