The Master Dojo (Japanese: マスター道場 Master Dojo) is a battle facility on the Isle of Armor in the Galar region. It is owned and operated by Mustard and his wife Honey. The Master Dojo accepts a limited number of students who wish to grow stronger as Pokémon Trainers.


Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

The Trainers who wish to receive the "secret armor" of the Master Dojo must pass Mustard's three trials.

The first trial requires the students to chase down and battle three Galarian Slowpoke at +6 Speed in the Soothing Wetlands due to the trio stealing Klara'sSw/Avery'sSh Dojo Uniform. Most of the students, including the player and their rival, succeed in the first trial.

The second trial requires students to find three clusters of Max Mushrooms, required to make Max Soup. Only the player, who finds the required amount of Max Mushrooms from Warm-Up Tunnel, and their rival are able to complete the trial.

In the third trial, students who cleared the second trial participate in Dynamax battles against each other. The winner is the one that successfully completes all the trials and is given the "secret armor" upon victory. The player passes the test after defeating their rival, despite the latter cheating.

Upon completing the trials, Mustard gives the player the "secret armor", a Kubfu, as their award.

The Master Dojo first appeared in PASS31, where Klara and Avery were revealed to be students there. After finding an unconscious and poisoned Henry at the Soothing Wetlands during their training, they brought him to the dojo, where Hyde used the Cram-o-matic to create an antidote for him. Shortly afterwards, Casey and Marvin reunited with Henry at the dojo. Even though they weren't official apprentices of the dojo, Mustard offered to let Casey train his Kubfu. However, since Casey already had a full team of six Pokémon on hand, she refused, so Mustard entrusted Kubfu with Henry instead.

Henry, Casey, and Marvin stayed at the dojo as they conducted their search for that Rusted Sword and Shield across the Isle of Armor, with Henry also training Kubfu on the side.

Max Soup was seen in a flashback in PASS42, where Mustard was revealed to have given Henry, Casey, and Marvin each a bowlful of it as a parting gift when they left the Master Dojo, enabling their respective first partner Pokémon to Gigantamax.
