  • In order for Zacian to learn Behemoth Blade, Zacian must know the move Iron Head and hold the item Rusted Sword at the same time.
  • When studied closely, Zacian's wings and back appendages disappear during Behemoth Blade. This implied that they were used to store metal to create the real blade of Zacian, the blade shown during Behemoth Blade.
