From the Lunar duo to the Eon and the Paradox duo, Pokémon has its fair share of paired species that work together to make the game exciting.
However, something about the Hero duo stands out to me. I love a proper, captivating backstory, which the hero duo brings full-on.
They aren’t the strongest, nor would they make it to the top three of the most formidable (at least not when Mewtwo and Mew exist 😐), but their affinity makes me nostalgic every time 🤩.
So, let’s talk about the hero duo and how strong they are.
How strong are the Hero duo Pokémon?
The hero duo are Zacian and Zamazenta, both introduced in Generation VIII. They are also known as the Legendary Duo of Galar or the Legends of Galar.
The two are believed to have been born somewhere beyond the Slumbering Weald, where they helped the two Kings of Galar fight against Eternatus during the Darkest Day.
From their history alone, it is clear that the duo is pretty strong.
Eternatus is gigantic, with a dragon shape. To go against it and emerge victorious says much about the Hero Duo’s strength.
Their similar base stats also contribute to their general strength. They have the same attack, defense, and speed, which means you will be fighting with or against two of one.
Which of the hero duo Pokémon is better?
The best of the two solely depends on one’s opinion. Zacian has won people’s hearts because of its ability to emerge victorious in a competitive setting, while Zamazenta is most preferred for its high defense🛡️ and excellence on terra raids.
Everyone forms an opinion based on their experience and preferred characteristics.
Zacian and Zamazenta are similar in many ways. They also have notable differences. Here are the main differences between the two:
Wolf with sword
Wolf with shield
Zacian and Zamazenta come in handy in different scenarios. So, hold your horses before picking a favorite because you might need the other🤔.
How do you beat hero duo Pokémon?
With good strategy, every Pokémon is beatable. With that in mind, you can easily beat the hero duo. The first thing is to know their weaknesses.
Zacian is weak to Poison and Steel, while Zamazenta is weak to Flying, Psychic, and Fairy.
Use moves and Pokémon that are effective against these weaknesses. Since it is a duo, you should pair your Pokémon and ensure they can individually beat Zacian or Zamazenta.
Also, train your Pokémon well. I usually battle other trainers to ensure my Pokémon level up enough to beat the hero duo.
You can use Experience Candies or participate in raids, as long as your Pokémon are well-experienced.
The Hero duo has powerful signature moves that could damage your precious Pokémon if you aren’t well prepared.
Since I started playing Pokemon at a tender age, my love for the game kept growing. My passion is what inspired me to pursue video game journalism. This helped me gain immersive experience of 5 years. I have a lot of expertise in the gaming industry since I have been editing game-related content for a long time. Since I have also been studying this game in-depth for years, I am now a professional player. My desire is to share everything I know about Pokemon to help you broaden your knowledge on the game.
