Hero duo is a fan term to describe the main legendary duo of Galar, consisting of Zacian and Zamazenta. Zacian is the game mascot of Pokémon Sword, while Zamazenta is the game mascot of Pokémon Shield.

History

The two Legendary Pokémon are believed to have been born from a place far beyond the Slumbering Weald. They are described as being the heroes of the Galar region that worked alongside a king of Galar to save the region from the rampage of Eternatus during the Darkest Day, before becoming statues and disappearing into the Slumbering Weald. The two were eventually forgotten by history, their role in the Darkest Day being attributed to a pair of human heroes instead. During the events of Pokémon Sword and Shield, the truth behind the legend was discovered by Sonia, with the help of Victor/Gloria and their rival, Hop. The truth of the legend was eventually published in a book, and became a point of contention from two brothers, Sordward and Shielbert, who claim to be descendants for the old kings.

They are encountered for the first time in the Slumbering Weald. Eventually, they will be obtainable during the post-game segment after Sordward and Shielbert are thwarted atop the Energy Plant. Hop will obtain the legendary Pokémon that is not available to the player.
