As promised, The Pokémon Company has revealed the identity of the 'glitched' monster which was teased on its official website. The Pokémon in question is Sirfetch’d.
Described as the 'Wild Duck Pokémon', Sirfetch’d is the evolved form of Farfetch'd. We've got some official artwork and a description for you below, including the character's key stats:
Category: Wild Duck Pokémon
Weight: 257.9 lbs.
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 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.
Sirfetch'd will be exclusive to Pokémon Sword.
Can you believe it? After all these years, Farfetch'd finally has an evolution.
