As a long-time fan of Pokémon, playing the Nintendo Switch has been a fantastic experience, especially being immersed in the Pokémon sword game, but after being on the other side of Pokémon Shield, getting a Zamazenta was easy, as it was located above the tower of Hammerlocke Gym.
As I searched for Zamazenta, I could not get it anywhere in the game; this left me wondering how I could get Zamazenta in Pokémon Sword and if it was as easy as in the Pokémon Shield game.
I deep-dived into this mystery, which I found out in my quest.
How do you get Zamazenta in Pokémon Sword?
After ⏳ hours of playing Pokémon Sword, I realized that unlike the Zamazenta being in Pokémon Shield, you cannot pull a Zamazenta in Pokémon Sword so quickly; the only way to get Zamazenta is by trading.
To trade, you will need to put up a unique Pokémon (something that’s not popular will move fast) you own that would attract a 💸 buyer in GTS and ask for a Zama zeta to trade.
My friend and I tried trading and got a rusted shield with ditto and 5IV, which I didn’t have any idea how to go about, but later found out that, fortunately, it is only with a rusted Shield that a Zamazenta can transform into its extreme full power that has a maximum of 31 IVs in every stat of the Pokémon and can breed with every Pokémon except legendary for they are not generated able.
This would be the best jackpot I have ever 💯 scored.
How do you get Zamazenta in Pokémon Sword without trading?
Unfortunately, 😔 there is no way you can catch the legendary Zamazenta; the only way to get Zamazenta is by trading in the sword with someone with a shield.
My friend and I were trying to find anyone to trade with and discovered that the 🌐 internet’s Pokémon community is pretty open to trading ideas, making it easy to find avenues, especially the internet, where you can easily trade for the only Hop’s Pokémon.
Luckily, we found the rusted Shield with Ditto and 5IV through Reddit, which has made our experience with Pokémon Sword amazing.
Can you catch Zamazenta with a Master Ball?
Yes, you can catch Zamazenta with a Master Ball. I’ve been trying to catch Zamazenta with a Master Ball, but the odds of catching it, just like a Zacian, are ten out of two hundred and fifty-five.
This is a very low 📉 catch rate, so they make an excellent choice for the Master Ball. After a few consultations here and there with my Pokémon enthusiasts, I realized that the Master Ball is not necessary for a Zamazenta.
It is way easier to save your Master Ball to trade them with probably a Shiny Pokémon because other Balls can catch Zamazenta.
