How To Get Both Zacian & Zamazenta?

Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon Sword and Shield

Even though Pokemon Sword & Pokemon Shield were released together, each contain certain Version Exclusive Pokemon that can be found in one game but not the other. This is seen in none other than Zacian and Zamazenta, the Cover Legendary Pokemon for each game, as you can only capture Zacian in Pokemon Sword and Zamazenta in Pokemon Shield. Outside of trading for the other, there seems to be no possible way to obtain both on the same game. However, that isn't the case with the help of Pokemon HOME, at least if you own both Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. By following these simple steps below, you will be able to own both Zacian and Zamazenta, the Kings of The Galar Region, on just one game!


1) Have Both Pokemon Sword & Pokemon Shield

2) Have Pokemon HOME Downloaded To Nintendo Switch - Paid Version Is Not Required


1) Complete the Main Story and Post Game Story in Pokemon Sword, capturing Zacian at the very end.

2) Complete the Main Story and Post Game Story in Pokemon Shield, capturing Zamazenta at the very end.

3) Log into Pokemon HOME using Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield. Deposit either Zacian/Zamazenta.

4) Log into Pokemon HOME with the other version and withdraw the Pokemon you just deposited with your other game.

5) Enjoy using both Zacian and Zamazenta within one of your games!
