Swords of Justice are present in Pokémon Sword and Shield DLC, but you have to search for footprints in the Crown Tundra to find them.

How to catch Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion in Pokémon Sword and Shield

During your walk in the cold country of the Galar region, you can find traces on the ground everywhere. Behind these footprints actually hides a long quest that will allow you to get your hands on three legendary creatures from the fifth generation. We show you how to unlock them in this Pokémon Sword and Shield guide.

Unlock the Three Swords of Justice quest

To unlock this mission, you will not necessarily have to look too much since Sonia will come to see you fairly quickly in the adventure that awaits you.

As you leave Freezington for the first time in the direction of the Frostpoint Field, you will come across Sonia who has come here to investigate. Here are footprints (the first in a long series!). Sonia then asks you to travel through the Crown Tundra to find all the footprints related to the three legendaries. First, examine the footprint there, so you will get 2% of the footprints needed to unlock Cobalion.
