Pokémon Sword and Shield: new Pokémon revealed (Sirfetch’d)

Last week, The Pokémon Company started teasing a mysterious Pokémon via a “glitch” on the official website for Pokémon Sword and Shield. Today, it was finally revealed, and it’s none other than… Farfetch’d, a special evolution of Farfetch’d only found in the Galar region.

Here’s the trailer showcasing this Pokémon:

Here’s some details about Sirfetch’d:

  • Category: Wild Duck Pokémon
  • Type: Fighting
  • Height: 2’7”
  • Weight: 257.9 lbs.
  • Ability: Steadfast

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.

What’s more, Sirfetch’d knows a brand new move called Meteor Assault, that no other Pokémon can learn:

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.

Finally, here’s some pictures for Sirfetch’d:

Pokémon Sword and Shield (Switch) comes out on November 15th worldwide.
