Pokémon.com says that “Only Farfetch’d that have survived many battles can attain this evolution. When this Pokémon’s leek withers, it will retire from combat.”
I’m really loving his design, the sword and shield leeks are great and I love them! To be honest, I’ve never really cared either way about Farfetch’d, he was neat, but didn’t make my teams when I played previous games. I am definitely looking forward to adding him to my team in Pokémon Sword though!
As I quoted above, only Farfetch’d who have fought many battles can evolve into Sirfetch’d. They always make it a point to fight fairly and nobly. They are so noble in fact, that many paintings depicting Sirfetch’d have been seen throughout the Galar region. I love that the most famous of these paintings is one depicting a battle between a Sirfetch’d and an Escavalier! Which is also awesome because it might mean that we’ll see Escavalier roaming around!
Meteor Assault is an awesome new move that only Sirfetch’d can learn, and it’s a brand new move for Pokémon Sword/Shield! “Sirfetch’d point it’s leek at the opponent and charges toward them at great speed.” Now while this move has great power, it also tires out Sirfetch’d, so it won’t be able to move during the next turn in battle, so plan accordingly! Personally, I can’t wait to use this in battle!
I can’t wait to see what the Pokémon Company reveals next!
