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

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.
