Pokemon Sword And Shield: Legendaries Zacian And Zamazenta On Nintendo Switch

Zacian and Zamazenta are the title legendaries for Pokemon Sword and Shield, on the Nintendo Switch. Here's what we know about them and our predictions for the next Pokemon game.

Pokemon Sword And Shield's spotlight legendaries are Zacian and Zamazenta. They join a long tradition of headlining legendary Pokemon exclusive to each versions of a Pokemon generation - in this era, Zacian for Pokemon Sword and Zamazenta for Pokemon Shield.

As usual, they are also new additions to the Pokedex that are similarly exclusive to their respective games, meaning you can't get the other without purchasing the dual pack for Pokemon Sword and Shield. This is much like with the recently revealed Sirfetch'd only appearing in Pokemon Sword among other exclusives.

Hopefully, this is an issue that will be corrected with the recent announcement of Pokemon Home. 

Zacian - Pokemon Sword

Zacian is a legendary Pokemon and exclusive to Pokemon Sword. Introduced in generation 8, it is currently not known to evolve. However, it does have a second form activated by giving it a rusted sword to hold. It's original form, Hero of Many Battles, will then become the Fairy/Steel-type Crowned Sword.

Zamazenta - Pokemon Shield

Zamazenta is a legendary Pokemon and exclusive to Pokemon Shield. Introduced in generation 8, it is currently not known to evolve. However, it does have a second form activated by giving Zamazenta a rusted shield to hold. Its original form, Hero of Many Battles, will then become the Fighting/Steel-type Crowned Shield.
