Check out the slideshow with game’s legendaries and legendaries being introduced by the Expansion Pass including new legendaries, galarian forms of old legendaries, and returning legendaries. Or, keep scrolling to see them on this page.
At the beginning of your adventure, you’ll encounter one of these Pokemon depending on which version of Pokemon Sword and Shield you’re playing (Zacian-Sword Zamazenta-Shield). You are unable to catch it at that point. Once you’ve become the Champion of Galar, however, you’ll be ready to confront these mysterious beasts and even catch one of them.
Use this section to compare between the two main Legendaries in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.
Clicking on each Pokemon’s name will take you to our wiki’s Pokedex. Each Pokedex page contains that Legendary Pokemon’s location information, information about its different forms, and more!.

  • Zacianattacks so gracefully that its movements can even captivate its opponents. It holds what appears to be a sword in its mouth. Its shining blade can cut through anything.
  • Zamazentas regal and majestic movements overwhelm any opponents that dare face it. Its body is covered in what seems to be a shield. Its gleaming shield can turn back any attack.

Eternatus is the Legendary thought to be responsible for the chaos of “The Darkest Day.” Chairman Rose believes Eternatus can save Galar from impending demise. The Dynamax phenomenon in the Galar region is the direct result of this Pokemon’s appearance. Eternatus is the third legendary Pokemon in Sword and Shield and can be caught in both versions of the game.
Our wiki’s Pokedex page for Eternatus contains more detailed info about where to catch Eternatus, the different forms of Eternatus, and more!

During a recent Pokemon direct explaining the Expansion Pass it was said that “deep inside the [new] dens you may see legendary Pokemon from past games Dynamaxing before your eyes!” Next, text on screen appeared that said “Legends of the past return!” So, it’s possible possible not all of them will be there.
