Zygarde (Pokémon Sword/Shield)

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki

Zygarde is a Dragon/Ground type legendary Pokémon originating from the Generation VI games Pokémon X and Y. In Pokémon Sword and Shield's second DLC, The Crown Tundra, it appears as one of the bosses in Dynamax Adventure. This boss fight has been infamous by players due to its brutal difficulty.

Why It Sucks

  1. Along with the other bosses and seeing that this is Dynamax Adventure you can only fight the boss using rental Pokémon which makes the battle more of a challenge.
  2. Zygarde has the ability Power Construct which not only makes him switch to complete form, but also increased it's defensive capability making it even tougher to beat
  3. It has a moveset that is very dangerous:
    1. Thousand Arrows
    2. Land's Wrath
    3. Dragon Pulse
    4. Bind
  4. In addition when Zygarde gets in a pinch, it will have the Thousand Wave attack when it attacks for the second time.
  5. The worst part, if your team gets knocked out 4 times (including previous battles) you have to restart the entire adventure from scratch!

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Defeating it will allow you to catch the Pokémon and also the option to keep it or not should you want to hunt its shiny form.
  2. It is better if a player uses an Ice-type Pokemon or a Pokemon that uses Ice-type moves such as Ice Beam, which is recommended for Water-type starters.
