With less than two months to go for the release of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, once more an entirely new Pokémon has been revealed and this time, it’s a Galar evolved form of our beloved Farfetch’d. So, join us for a brand new instalment of “Who’s That Pokémon?” as this time tackle the Wild Duck Pokémon Sirfetch’d.
*Exlusive to Pokémon Sword
Classification: Wild Duck Pokémon
Weight: 257.9 lbs
Description: Only Farfetch’d that have survived many battles can attain this evolution. When this Pokémon’s leek withers, it will retire from combat.
The Farfetch’d of the Galar region can evolve into Sirfetch’d after experiencing many battles. They are calm and collected, and they make a point of always battling fairly. They are so noble in battle that they are often chosen as a motif for paintings. Of particular note is a painting—famous in the Galar region—that depicts a duel between a Sirfetch’d and an Escavalier.
In battle, Sirfetch’d uses the sharp stalk of its leek as a lance and the thick leaves as a shield. It maintains this leek over the span of many years and treasures it more than anything. When its leek finally withers, Sirfetch’d will leave the battlefield and retire from battling entirely.
Meteor Assault (Move): Meteor Assault is a new move introduced in these games that only Sirfetch’d can learn! Sirfetch’d points its leek at the opponent and charges toward them at great speed. This move is devastatingly powerful! However, it appears that the move also puts great strain on Sirfetch’d. It will be unable to take action immediately after using this move.
