If it helps, i prefer a version with lots of cute pokemon

Sword has the better Mascot, viability speaking.

look through here if your are curious on what version exclusive they have:

Something like Togepi and Pichu are available in both versions so those are exempt from the decision.

well you can get cute pokemon either way but getting your hands on a Zacian is much harder than getting your hands on a Zamazenta. so you definitely want Sword.

because people are far less willing to give up a Zacian, than they are a Zamazenta. Because Zacian, is actually pretty good, whereas Zamazenta isnt bad but his ability is simply worse than Zacian's. for every person you see looking to trade their zacian, theres at least 20 people on these forums looking to trade their zamazenta.

Makes sense. To be honest, I thought Zamazenta would be harder due to trading, because from what I understand, Sword sold a lot more copies, so there would be that many more people likely to trade their Zacian, at least for purposes of filling their Dex.

<s>I already got the shield exclusive Pokémon from trading so exclusive Pokémon is not really a big argument to get one or the other. </s>
