Legendary Pokémon

Like the other games, there are a few Legendary Pokémon to be found within the Galar region. These Pokémon are the most powerful ones around and are difficult to capture. Only the Legendary Pokémon from the Galar Region are presently available in the game.

Eternatus

Location: Energy Plant

During the game's story, Chairman Rose will awaken Eternatus and use its power to bring the Darkest Day. Leon, as Champion, is trying to take it on but is struggling so it ends up being up to you to battle Eternatus, the mysterious Legendary Pokémon. This, however, cannot be captured

Zacian / Zamazenta

Location: Energy Plant

In the post-game, you will be hunting down Sordard and Shielbert and face their claims that Sonia's book about the history of Zacian and Zamazenta are inaccurate and they're descendants of the true heroes of the Galar region. In doing so, they'll attack the Legendary Pokémon of the other game causing you to have to fight it. Once defeated, the other Legendary will appear and will challenge you to a battle. They come with the item attached that lets them change the form. You get Zacian in Pokémon Sword and Zamazenta in Pokémon Shield

Calyrex

Location: Crown Shrine

Getting Calyrex, Gastrier and Spectrier is a long process. To do it, you need to follow Calyrex's story and help it be remembered and build the Reins of Unity. First you need to get Carrot Seeds for Dynite Ore in Freezington. As the story progresses, you'll get the choice of whether to plant it in the Icy area or in the Old Cemetry. If you select the Ice area you'll get Glastrier and if you select the Cemetry you get Spectrier. After you battle the horses in Freezington, it'll run off. Calyrex suggests going to its old shrine with the carrot to lure it.
When there, Calyrex will re-tame its old steed and say that it will allow itself to be captured if you managed to defeat it in its full form. You will face off against Calyrex and catch it in its full form. Once caught, you can unfuse it to get the horse.
