Pokémon Sword & Shield Coverage Day 6

The Pokémon Sword & Shield Isle of Armor patch is now live and our copy is downloading. As such, our usual discoveries shall begin. As usual, I'll be posting the main focal points here, while more in-depth details go on the discovery thread on the forums If you want to remain unspoiled, do not click the spoiler tag, nor visit the Sword & Shield section until you have your game. Don't worry as blatant spoilers will NOT be on the home page.
Our Pokédex and Pokéarth section with full information for the DLC including locations, learnsets and more
Edit @ 10:22: Fixed an issue with the Pokédex that prevented Pokémon that are part of a secondary Egg Group from appearing
Edit @ 13:21: Updated the Weather Section to give further lists of Pokémon in fewer than 4 weather conditions and prevent the coded Snow/Snowstorm appearing for Isle of Armor spawns
Edit @ 13:45: Updated Pokéarth - Galar to display weather available in each location of the Isle of Armor as not every area can have every weather
Edit @ 17:45: Updated the Digging Ma page with locations
Edit @ 20:46: As per request, I've updated the Marks page to show approximate rates on individual mark rows rather than in a table above
