Pokemon Sword and Shield Legendaries List – Currently Known Legendaries!

Our Pokemon Sword and Shield Legendaries List features all of the currently known Legendary Pokemon that will be coming out with the release of the first full-fledged Pokemon title for the Nintendo Switch console. There's not a ton of information available out at the moment, but we'll keep you up-to-date with what is known currently.

With each new full Pokemon game we get a bunch of new Legendary Pokemon added to the PokeDex. Pokemon Sword and Shield will likely be no different! While the first two from the games themselves have been revealed, expect to get some more information as we get closer to the November 15th, 2019 release date.

Possible Legendary Leak

There's a possible Legendary that hasn't been revealed and was mentioned in the infamous leak that was mostly verified at the Pokemon Direct. The name is reportedly "Eternatus" and it is an evil Legendary. Not much other than that is known, but if we learn more it will be added to the post!

Pokemon Sword and Shield Legendaries List

We currently only know two of the Legendary Pokemon right now, and they are main mascots of each of the games! We hope to learn more in the future, and we'll keep this list updated once any other information comes out.



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

Zacian is the main mascot Pokemon of the Pokemon Sword version of the game. That means, you'll only be able to catch Zacian if you own Pokemon Sword. You can obtain it in other ways via trade, but the typical way you get these mascot Legendaries is by catching them in the game.



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

Zamazenta is the mascot of the Pokemon Shield game. That means you will only be able to catch it in the wild by owning the Shield version of the game. You generally get a chance to battle against the mascot Pokemon when you've completed the story of the game, and at that time you'll be able to catch it. If you want to have both of these Legendaries, you can either trade for one of them which can be kind of difficult to accomplish, or you can purchase the other version of the game and catch it by playing through it again! If you plan on purchasing both games, Nintendo is offering a Pokemon Sword and Shield Double Pack!

That's all the Legendaries we know for now, be sure to check back soon!
