Pokemon Sword and Shield: Which Legendary Steed Should You Pick?

The Crown Tundra DLC Pass challenges Pokemon Sword and Shield Trainers with a difficult choice between two powerful new Galarian Legendary Pokemon.

Pokemon Sword  and  Shield fans have been exploring the Isle of Armor in anticipation of the recently arrived Crown Tundra for some time now. With the icy DLC now available for purchase, players are finally starting to uncover its many secrets, like the two Legendary Horse Pokemon, Glastrier and Spectrier.

Glastrier and Spectrier were two of the more well-kept Crown Tundra DLC secrets, and every  Pokemon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass holder eventually gets to choose and capture one of them. The official Pokemon website itself still lacks a page for the two hidden horses, so it's no surprise that many players are only finding out about them recently.

While many Crown Tundra and Isle of Armor promos featured the new hybrid bunny-deer Legendary, Calyrex, none of them acknowledged the Pokemon's long lost Legendary steeds. Calyrex can actually mount either of the two Legendary Horse Pokemon and take on an entirely new form, depending on horse. Unfortunately, players can only catch one Legendary Horse .

Glastrier, the Wild Horse Pokemon, is a pure Ice-type, and as such, imbues Calyrex with the Ice-type upon combining. Thus, Ice Rider Calyrex is a Psychic/Ice-type Pokemon. On the other hand, Spectrier, the Swift Horse Pokemon, is a pure Ghost-type. Together with the Legendary Pokemon Calyrex , it takes the form of Shadow Rider Calyrex, which is a Psychic/Ghost-type. While its icy counterpart, Glastrier, exhibits impressive Attack and Defense stats, Spectrier shines most in the Special Attack and Speed departments.

None of Spectrier's stats fall as low as Glastrier's unfortunate base Speed stat (30,) but its Attack, Defense, and Special Defense stats, are lacking. Glastrier, though incredibly slow, also features bulky HP/Special Defense capabilities together with its outstanding Attack/Defense.

When united with Calyrex, the two also gain access to unique special moves and abilities , which may affect some players' decisions. Glastrier's ability, Chilling Neigh, raises its Attack stat every time an enemy is knocked out. Spectrier's, Grim Neigh, does the same to the user's Special Attack. Upon fusion with Calyrex, they will learn a new ability that combines the effects of Calyrex's ability (Unnerve) with those of their own.

With regard to special moves, Ice Rider Calyrex learns the powerful Glacial Lance, and Shadow Rider Calyrex learns the equally strong Astral Barrage. Both deal massive amounts of damage with no added effects. Given that Glastrier's unsavory base Speed stat places it behind most top Pokemon, competitive players are tending to focus on its capacity to synergize with Trick Room teams, and other similar stat-swapping strategies. If Glastrier can be made to move more quickly, its Attack, Defense, and HP make it a menacing tank of a Pokemon .

Spectrier, on the other hand, performs best as an offense-forward beast. It functions as a remarkable special sweeper (high Special Attack, used to KO other Pokemon) and can hold its own without needing a setup like Trick Room. In light of this, many fans are opting for Spectrier as their steed of choice. Although Psychic/Ghost-typing makes it vulnerable to Dark or Ghost-type Pokemon , for example, its sheer Attack power more than makes up for it.

Pokemon  Sword and Shield , and The Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra DLC Expansion Passes, are available now on Switch.

Pokemon Sword & Shield How to Get All Legendary Pokemon

November 18, 2019 by PowerPyx 19 Comments

Pokemon Sword & Shield has 6 Legendary Pokemon. This guide shows how to get all Legendaries in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

ghost legendary pokemon sword

Eternatus is automatically caught during the story. Near the end of the story you will have to fight Eternatus in a Max Raid Battle. After defeating it, throw a Pokeball and it’s a guaranteed catch. You get a lot of help from your friends during this battle so it’s not all that difficult.

Zacian und Zamazenta

ghost legendary pokemon sword

Zacian is exclusive to Sword edition and Zamazenta is exclusive to Shield edition.

They are caught in the endgame / post-story episode. After beating the story, you will have to return to the shrine in Slumbering Weald where you found the Sword and Shield artifacts. Hop is waiting there and wants a rematch, defeat him and then defeat the other trainers that show up. Afterward, visit Sonia’s Lab in Wedgehurst and she’ll give you a device to spot Dmax Energy. Go to Turffield Stadium and you will learn that Pokemon have started to Dmax on their own within Stadiums. You must go back to all Stadiums and defeat a Dmaxed Pokemon in each (except Spikemuth). After you defended all Stadiums, talk to Sonia in the entrance hall of Hammerlocke Stadium. She opens the elevator next to her, which leads to the Energy Plant. Defeat the trainers in the Energy Plant and you’ll be brought to the rooftop. Zacian (Sword) / Zamazenta (Shield) are automatic story encounters on the Energy Plant Rooftop at the end of this post-story episode, you can’t miss them. They are very hard to catch and can quickly defeat your own Pokemon. It’s recommended you use the Master Ball here that you got from winning the Championship. Beware that Sword players will first fight a red glowing Zamazenta which cannot be caught, and Shield players will fight a red glowing Zacian first which cannot be caught. The second fight will be versus the Pokemon that’s exclusive to your game edition and at this point it can be caught (you can tell because it doesn’t have the red energy around it and will wear the Sword or Shield relic).

Type: Null & Silvally

Type: Null and Silvally count as legendaries, too! After finishing the story, travel to Wyndon and enter the Battle Tower there. Immediately after going inside, turn left and talk to the girl with Type: Null next to her. She will gift you this Pokemon!

To evolve Type: Null to Silvally, you must increase its happiness value to 220 (play with it at camps and cook curry). Then it will evolve. They are a bit more secret than the other legendaries as they can easily be overlooked and aren’t such obvious legendaries.

To obtain Mew you must buy a Pokeball Plus (can be purchased separately). This gadget allows you to transfer Mew into Sword and Shield. However, if you already used this for Pokemon Let’s Go, you won’t be able to do this (must buy a new Pokeball Plus in this case).

That’s how you get all 6 Legendaries in Pokemon Sword & Shield.

Finally! You guys are the only ones thus far who do this properly! Everywhere else only has the main three, not all five or four!

November 22, 2019 at 5:24 pm

Why are there such few legendaries in Sword and Shield? Theres not even a legendary trio, and only 3 new legendaries as it is, thats very disappointing

' src=

November 23, 2019 at 9:00 am

There’s actually more, listed in the data, just dont know how to obtain them yet

' src=

November 23, 2019 at 10:12 am

I honestly agree I thought this was by far the easiest Pokemon game yet. Smh walked through this whole game without taking a single loss smh come on now wtf!

' src=

December 7, 2019 at 8:58 pm

There gonna add more through events. In the files you can find legendaries from gen 4 to now.

' src=

December 24, 2019 at 11:14 am

I’m pretty sure that Zacian, zamazenta and Eternatus count as a trio like groudon, kyogre and rayquaza/ palkia, dialga and giratina/ xerneus, yveltal and zygarde/ reshiram, zekrom and kyruem/ solgaleo, Lunala and necrozma

January 6, 2020 at 3:07 am

you can transfer old pokemon like from sun and moon over to sword and shield. they have a lot of legendaries in the game’s code like mew (btw you can only get mew by getting pokemon plus) however most of the ways to get the other legendaries cost money. hope this helped.

August 20, 2020 at 4:52 am

I watched a video that told me where mewtwo is but you are right i expected more.

' src=

November 23, 2019 at 1:47 pm

Now that you mention it I don’t think I lost a single battle. Really easy game, bit disappointed with the lack of legendaries but if there are more hidden that would be cool

' src=

December 6, 2019 at 6:51 pm

There is a really cool ghost Easter egg if you haven’t did it here is the steps go to hammerlocke once you’re there go to the left and eventually you will se stairs go up talk to the girl and do her mission by delivering that letter to a guy name frank in Ballonlea and go back and press we’re she was standing

' src=

November 27, 2019 at 5:48 pm

If you’re dying within a pokemon game either before hand or now in shield. Then you got problems the game is made for a young age group the difficulty in the games comes from catch rate, breeding, and competitive.

' src=

December 6, 2019 at 4:04 am

I disagree the older games had a lot more level jumps and in some cases required grinding to progress, this game I had no problems with any of my team members being under leveled until I fought Leon and even then my team was 61-62

' src=

December 27, 2019 at 5:12 am

Yuh, having to grind levels isn’t a difficulty increase its artificially leghnthaning a game, if a game is well built you shouldn’t be able to out level the content or have to grind before moving on with the story but battles should be close

' src=

February 5, 2020 at 5:06 am

All these names being dropped and not one person’s asking for the original Legendary trio…. Articuno, zapdos and moltres the legendary birds pokemon. The best legendaries with the best plot n storyline with them. Please bring them back!!

Pokemon Sword and Shield legendaries: All the legendary Pokemon in both games

All of the Pokemon Sword and Shield legendary Pokemon available to catch

Eternatus

There are a few Pokemon Sword and Shield legendaries for you to catch, and we've got the information you need to make sure you catch 'em all. Despite previous games having a good number of legendary Pokemon – seriously, even the first games had five – Pokemon Sword and Shield has just three legendary Pokemon, and you can only catch two in a single game. With that said, here are all three of the Pokemon Sword and Shield legendaries that you'll come across in the new Galar region. 

Note: there are very minor spoilers in this guide, so if you're wondering how to catch Zacian, Zamazenta, and Eternatus, check out the final few pages of our Pokemon Sword and Shield walkthrough .

Zacian (Pokemon Sword)

Zacian is the cover Pokemon for Pokemon Sword, and you'll first encounter this mysterious beast when you search for Wooloo in the Slumbering Weald. You can only catch Zacian in Pokemon Sword – Pokemon Shield players should read on to the next entry – but you'll have to wait until your next encounter with the legendary 'mon near the end of the game until you can try and catch it.

Zacian is a Fairy/Steel-type and will be level 70 when you can catch it, then make sure you head back to the Slumbering Weald at the end of the game and grab the Rusted Sword to upgrade it to its more powerful Crowned Sword form. 

Pokedex Entries

Hero of Many Battles Sword: Known as a legendary hero, this Pokémon absorbs metal particles, transforming them into a weapon it uses to battle. Shield: This Pokémon has slumbered for many years. Some say it's Zamazenta's elder sister—others say the two Pokémon are rivals.

Crowned Sword Sword: Now armed with a weapon it used in ancient times, this Pokémon needs only a single strike to fell even Gigantamax Pokémon. Shield: Able to cut down anything with a single strike, it became known as the Fairy King's Sword, and it inspired awe in friend and foe alike.

Zamazenta (Pokemon Shield)

Much like Zacian in Pokemon Sword, Zamazenta is the cover legendary and face of Pokemon Shield. Again, you'll run into it alongside Zacian in the Slumbering Weald at the start of the game, but you can't catch the beast until you face it again shortly after you become Champion of Galar.

While Zacian is Fairy/Steel-type, Zamazenta is Fighting/Steel-type and again, will be level 70 when you fight and catch it. Venture back to the Slumbering Weald and obtain the Rusted Shield to upgrade Zamazenta to the Crowned Shield form.

Hero of Many Battles Sword: In times past, it worked together with a king of the people to save the Galar region. It absorbs metal that it then uses in battle. Shield: This Pokémon slept for aeons while in the form of a statue. It was asleep for so long, people forgot that it ever existed.

Crowned Shield Sword: Its ability to deflect any attack led to it being known as the Fighting Master's Shield. It was feared and respected by all. Shield: Now that it's equipped with its shield, it can shrug off impressive blows, including the attacks of Dynamax Pokémon.

Eternatus is the legendary Pokemon teased throughout the game, but rarely named until you face off against the enormous 'mon prior to taking on Leon in the final. It's the tallest Pokemon ever known to exist in the Pokemon universe, and is the source of the Dynamax/Gigantamax ability being present in Galar.

When you take on Eternatus at the top of the Energy Plant before the end of the game, you'll need to defeat it in a raid battle style fight. Zacian and Zamazenta will come to assist you, and capturing it will reward you with the insanely powerful beast at level 60. After winning the fight, you can then use Eternatus to help you become Champion in the final. Cheeky.

Eternatus Sword: The core on its chest absorbs energy emanating from the lands of the Galar region. This energy is what allows Eternatus to stay active. Shield: It was inside a meteorite that fell 20,000 years ago. There seems to be a connection between this Pokémon and the Dynamax phenomenon.

Eternamax Eternatus Sword: As a result of Rose's meddling, Eternatus absorbed all the energy in the Galar region. It's now in a state of power overload. Shield: Infinite amounts of energy pour from this Pokémon's enlarged core, warping the surrounding space-time.

The Ghost type  ( Japanese : ゴーストタイプ,  Hepburn :  Gosuto taipu ) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types .

The Ghost type is notable for having few Pokémon (many of whom have low HP) and moves. In battles, the Ghost-type is useful because it's the only type that has two immunities: Normal and Fighting , both of which are common move types. From Generation VI onwards, Ghost-types are also immune to moves and abilities that prevent escaping, like Block and Shadow Tag .

Pokémon of this type are usually connected to fear, the dark and the afterlife. They usually live in abandoned houses, cemeteries, funeral places and uninhabited dark places such as caves. Also, Ghost-type Pokémon tend to be extremely naughty, pranking humans just to see their faces and reactions. Curiously, the more scared a human is, the more power the Ghost Pokémon will have to prank with it. At worst, some Ghost-type Pokémon may have relatively murderous behaviors, such as Jellicent preying on ships and their crews or the Litwick evolutionary family draining the life energy from people that are lost.

Famous Ghost-type Pokémon Trainers include Agatha , third member of the Kanto Elite Four ; Morty , the fourth Gym Leader of Johto ; Phoebe , second member of the Hoenn Elite Four ; Fantina , the fifth Gym Leader in the Sinnoh region; Shauntal , a member of the Unova Elite Four ; Acerola , a Trial Captain of Ula'ula Island , Alola as well as its third Elite Four member; and Allister , the fourth Gym Leader of Galar in Pokémon Shield .

Relations with other types [ ]

  • They're strong against the Psychic -type because some people are afraid of ghosts, and fears affect the mind. Communing with ghosts is also said to be a much different process than simply reading minds through physical or empirical means.
  • They're weak against themselves because ghosts can only touch each other, and there's a belief that the strongest spirit wins, with spirit referring to the desire to win something.
  • They're weak against the Dark -type because dark represents terror and evil, and it is said that evil spirits (like Spiritomb ) are punished. According to some belief systems, ghosts who lead evil lives and refuse to go to the afterlife are said to transform into demons, and demons in some mythologies are feared and also rumored to eat lost souls.
  • They're immune to the Fighting and Normal -types because spirits are incorporeal beings and thus can't be hit normally. This is also the reason why the Normal -type is immune to them, because a mortal and a ghost can't hurt each other. Interestingly, the Fighting -type is not immune to them.
  • They resist the Poison -type because you can't poison someone who's already dead, and since spirits don't have a physical form, toxins can't pass through.
  • They resist the Bug -type because members of that type cannot easily transcend the spiritual barrier members of this type hide behind in order to attack them. Also because parasites can't infect someone who's already dead.
  • The only Ghost-type Pokémon of Generation I were Gastly and its evolutions.
  • Before Generation II, Psychic -type Pokémon were immune to Ghost-type moves, although it's largely believed this was due to a programming error, since Nintendo-published guides claimed they were weak to them. This created a balance issue that was rectified in later generations.
  • The first pure Ghost-type Pokémon was Misdreavus , which was introduced in Generation II.
  • No Gym Leader or Elite Four member who specializes in Ghost-type Pokémon was introduced in Generation VI.
  • Similarly to the Dark type, the Ghost type is usually not straightforward when representing a Pokémon. Sometimes, Ghost Pokémon like Yamask and Gengar are this type because they are actual dead humans. This could also be seen as a term of murderous instincts like Jellicent which sinks ships and Froslass which freezes and keeps humans. It could also come from the fact that normal items could be possessed by a ghost like Banette or Aegislash (Banette being a possessed doll and Aegislash being a possessed sword). This could also relate to the mischievous actions of ghosts like Misdreavus and Rotom . This could also be because they have supernatural powers like Hoopa or Giratina (Hoopa can create portals and Giratina can use the powers of gas-type-matter).
  • As shown from certain Pokémon like Mimikins , it is shown that certain Ghost types can in fact die despite being considered a "ghost".
  • The Ghost type has the same type advantages as the Dark -type ( Psychic and Ghost ).
  • The Ghost type alone is the only type with two immunities.
  • Morty and Allister are the only male Ghost -type trainers so far.
  • The Ghost type is tied with the Ice type and the Ground type for the least Gigantamax forms, each having 1.
  • The Ghost type is the last type Ash Ketchum caught in the anime, where he caught a Gengar in A Chilling Curse! .
  • The Ghost type has the most accurate moves of any type, as the only Ghost-type move capable of missing is Poltergeist .
  • The Rock type is the only type that hasn't been paired with the Ghost type thus far.
  • Some Ghost types are based on Yōkai from Japanese mythology; Froslass being based on the Yuki-Onna and Phantump being based on the Kodama.
  • ^ Before Generation V , Curse was a ??? -type move.
  • ^ In Generation I , Bug-type moves did normal damage on Ghost-type Pokémon.
  • ^ In Generation I , Bug-type moves were super effective on Ghost/Poison-type Pokémon.
  • ^ Only in its Sensu Style.
  • ^ Due to the ability Multitype , equipped with the Spooky Plate .
  • ^ Due to the ability RKS System , equipped with the Ghost Memory .
  • ^ In its Dawn Wings Forme when fused with Lunala.
  • 2 Legendary Pokémon
  • 3 Ash Ketchum

What Are Legendary Pok�mon?

Throughout the years, there has been much talk of Legendary Pok�mon. Starting with just the 5 Legendary Pok�mon in Generation 1, as of Generation VII there are 81 different Legendary Pok�mon. Legendary Pok�mon are typically rare and hard to get, usually being restricted to one or two of each species in each game they're available in. Each Legendary Pok�mon has an aspect of lore behind it that you can discover in the game. Before Generation IV, there were no Legendary Pok�mon that could breed, before adding Manaphy and Phione. Before Generation III they couldn't have gender, and before Generation VII there were no Legendary Pok�mon that could evolve. They also started to get alternate forms in Generation III and Generation IV that allowed for even more variety and lore-building.

While many people group segments of Legendary Pok�mon together, there are in fact three categories of Legendary Pok�mon within the game. These help determine how and when a Legendary Pok�mon is used and its appearance.

In Generation 9, these categories were spread out further into Special Pok�mon

Sub-Legendary Pok�mon | Legendary Pok�mon | Mythical Pok�mon

Sub-Legendary Pok�mon

Sub-Legendary Pok�mon are the group of Legendary Pok�mon that typically get no restrictions. They're allowed in Battle Facilities such as the Battle Tree , Battle Frontier , Battle Spot, Online Competitions and the Video Game Championships . They have stats that range from 534 up to 670. Their category exists within the game code for the purpose of battle regulations and display in the Alola Pok�dex, but has no official name. This subcategory includes the Ultra Beasts. These are officially Legendary Pok�mon in the code until Generation 9 when Special Pok�mon were split into further groups, but are sometimes categorised separately in other material

Legendary Pok�mon

Legendary Pok�mon are the main group of Legendary Pok�mon. These Pok�mon are typically the Pok�mon that adorn the covers of the video games, as well as any counterparts. The first one to exist was Mewtwo but they soon became more entrenched into the lore of the games. These Pok�mon are banned from Battle Tree , Battle Frontier and similar facilities, as well as the Rating Battles in Battle Spot. Several instances of the Video Game Championships and Online Competitions have allowed for the use of these Pok�mon, typically with restrictions as to how many you can use. They have stats that range from 600 up to 720, and some even have Form Changes, Mega Evolutions or Primal Reversions.

Mythical Pok�mon

Mythical Pok�mon were originally known in common conversation as "Event Only Pok�mon" for a reason. These Pok�mon are so rare that they are typically only available through going to an event distribution and either receiving the Pok�mon itself, or an item to go get the Pok�mon within the wild. Due to the fact that these are typically only from events and have limited distributions, these Pok�mon are banned from Battle Tree , Battle Frontier and similar facilities, as well as the Rating Battles in Battle Spot & the Video Game Championships . Several instances of Online Competitions have allowed for the use of these Pok�mon. They have typically have base stats that sit around 600, and some even have Form Changes or Mega Evolutions causing stat increases. The Generation 7 Pok�mon games also introduced the first evolving Mythical Pok�mon

Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass: All Legendary Pokémon

Pokemon Sword Shield Crown Tundra Legendary Birds

The Crown Tundra, the second DLC released as part of the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass , is out now, and it's brought a bunch of new and returning Legendary Pokémon to the game. Catching these impressive creatures is always a highlight of a Pokémon game, and while it won't be easy to collect them all, we'll help you out by letting you know what to look out for.

Legendary Pokémon in Sword and Shield

Towards the end of the base game, you'll encounter and capture Eternatus . After you defeat Champion Leon, you'll be able to catch either Zacian or Zamazenta .

Legendary Pokémon in The Isle of Armor Expansion

The first Pokémon Sword and Shield expansion, The Isle of Armor, introduced the Legendary Fighting Pokémon Kubfu , which you can acquire by fighting your way through one of the island's towers. It evolves into Urshifu , which has both a Fighting/Dark form and a Fighting/Water form.

Legendary Pokémon in The Crown Tundra Expansion

The Crown Tundra adds a huge number of Legendary Pokémon to Pokémon Sword and Shield, including three brand new ones: Calyrex, Regidrago, and Regieleki. It also introduces Galarian variants on the Legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres that have new appearances and types.

How to Catch Legendary Pokemon.png

This page explains how to catch each of the Legendary Pokemon in the games Pokemon Sword and Shield. Read on for tips and strategies for catching Zacian, Zamazenta, and Eternatus, as well as new Legendaries Kubfu and Urshifu in the Isle of Armor.

List of Contents

List of Legendary Pokemon and How to Catch Them

  • Available in the Base Game
  • Available only via Events

New Legendary Pokemon in The Isle of Armor

Returning legendary pokemon in the crown tundra, how to catch eternatus, how to catch zacian, how to catch zamazenta, introduction to the legendary pokemon, related links, legendary pokemon available in the base game.

The following Legendary Pokemon can be found in Pokemon Sword and Shield with no need for DLC or events. Unlike previous games in the series, there's no set of three Legendaries akin to the Legendary Birds or Legendary Dogs, marking the lowest in-game Legendary count of any generation.

Legendary Pokemon Available only via Events

Zarude, the first Mythical Pokemon announced this generation, is obtainable starting August 7th only via the Japan release of Pokemon the Movie: Coco. We're expecting more events in other countries coming soon to make Zarude more easily available.

The Isle of Armor DLC features a brand-new set of Legendary Pokemon, Kubfu and Urshifu, one of the very few evolution chains among Legendaries.

The Crown Tundra expansion, availble on the Expansion Pass DLC , was revealed to contain all Legendary Pokemon from previous games . New Galarian forms of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres were also announced.

List of Pokemon Appearing in Expansion Pass DLC

Can be obtained before battling the Champion

Eternatus is the last battle before facing with the Champion, and it is encountered directly after battling the Chancellor, the mastermind of the story of Pokemon Sword and Shield. Because you will be able to obtain Eternatus with any Poke Ball , simply choose a ball you like, and be sure to have it with you for the encounter.

Steps for Catching Zacian

Can be obtained after finishing the story (sword exclusive).

Zacian can be obtained after completing the main Story. The quest to obtain Zacian as described above can be completed in about 3 hours. After defeating the Champion, the player will receive a Master Ball, so they will be able to obtain Zacian without fail.

Steps for Catching Zamazenta

Can be obtained after finishing the story (shield exclusive).

Just like Zacian, Zamazenta can only be obtained after defeating the Champion and returning to the Slumbering Weald .

The Pokemon absorbing all the energy of the Galar Region

A strong pokemon playing a decisive role in max raid battles.

Eternatus is at Level 60 when it joins the player's team, which combined with its high Special Attack makes it a must-have for Max Raid Battles. As the Pokemon with the highest Base Stats attainable before the end of the Story, Eternatus is a Pokemon you'll definitely want to have as a constant member of your team.

Eternatus's Stats, Abilities and Learnable Moves

The Pokemon with a shining sword to slice through anything, Zacian

How to Catch Legendary Pokemon - Zacian.jpg

Zacian attacks so gracefully that its movements can even captivate its opponents. It holds what appears to be a sword in its mouth. Source: Official Site

Zacian eminates a gallant and refined aura suited to the knightly image of the sword, and as such fills the part as the mascot of Pokemon Sword. There is a high chance that Zacian will only appear in Pokemon Sword, so for those who want to capture Zacian, Pokemon Sword just might be the choice for you.

Becomes a Fairy/Steel-type

When given a Rusted Sword , Zacian will transform into its Crowned Sword Form, and become a Fairy/Steel dual-type Pokemon. With Fire and Ground as its only weaknesses , and a host of resistences provided by the Steel type, Zacian becomes a defensively powerful player.

Zacian's Stats, Abilities and Learnable Moves

The Pokemon with a glistening shield to reflect all attacks, Zamazenta

How to Catch Legendary Pokemon - Zamazenta.jpg

Zamazenta’s regal and majestic movements overwhelm any opponents that dare face it. Its body is covered in what seems to be a shield. Source: Official Site

Zamazenta's body is completely covered in a giant shield. This truly is an appearance worthy to serve as the mascot of Pokemon Shield. Zamazenta is only available in Pokemon Shield, so for those who want to capture Zamazenta, Pokemon Shield would be the best option to purchase - assuming you don't have a friend who is willing to part with theirs!

Becomes a Fighting/Steel-type

When given a Rusted Shield , Zamazenta will transform into its Crowned Shield Form, and beocome a Fighting/Steel dual-type Pokemon. It gains a sizable stat boost in both Defense and Special Defense, making Zamazenta no easy feat to take down.
