Zacian is a new addition to Pokémon GO, and as such has an interesting host of new movesets to best put its opponents on edge. Zacian awaits players in tier five legendary raids, where they can battle against and add the new Pokémon into their arsenal.

The crowned version of Zacian is not yet available in Pokémon GO, so players can expect a solely Fairy-type Pokémon, as opposed to the added Steel-type of the crowned version, with an interesting assortment of move types to experiment with.
