is one of three Legends found in The Galar Region
, specifically being the Cover Legend
of Pokemon Sword
. Since it's exclusive to Pokemon Sword
, it can't be found in Pokemon Shield
. Instead, those playing Pokemon Shield
will only be able to obtain Zacian by trading with someone who owns Pokemon Sword
For those playing Pokemon Sword
can, in fact, be captured. However, unlike Cover Legendary Pokemon of the past, Zacian can't be captured until a player has finished the Main Story and has become the newest Galar Region
Champion. After doing so, the Post Game
will begin. After dealing with Sordward
and their antics, players will eventually be able to battle both Zacian and Zamazenta
near the conclusion of the Post Game. Since Zamazenta is the Cover Legend
to Pokemon Shield
and is exclusive to that game, it won't be able to be captured when battled. Zacian, on the hand, can be captured.
When battled at the summit of the Energy Plant, Zacian
will be at Level 70 and in its Crowned Sword
Form (since it will be equipped with the Rusted Sword
). Since it will be in its Alternate Form, Zacian will be a dual Fairy / Steel Type (making it weak to only Fire Type and Ground Type Attacks). Zacian will know the moves Swords Dance, Sacred Sword, Crunch, and Behemoth Blade, and it will have its Attack
Stat raised by one stage when the battle begins due its Intrepid Sword Ability.
is the final Legendary Pokemon you can encounter within Pokemon Sword

on it in order to guarantee its capture.Want to know how to change Zacian's Form? Click Here to learn how!
