Pokemon Sword and Shield: Meet Sirfetch’d, the new Farfetch'd evolution!

Nintendo have just released a new trailer for the next Pokémon to be added to Pokémon Sword and Shield — the first new main-series game to come to Nintendo Switch. Discover the brand new evolution of Farfetch'd!

Nintendo revealed some new information about Pokémon Sword and Shield for NIntendo Switch. The release of the games is fast approaching, and the developers are clearly not done surprising us!

A few days earlier, a glitch had been seen on the official Pokémon website. Now we know that the mysterious Pokémon is in fact a Farfetch'd from the Galar region! However, it will be exclusive to the Pokémon Sword version of the game.

Meet Sirfetch’d, the Wild Duck Pokémon! Farfetch’d that inhabit the Galar region can evolve into Sirfetch’d after experiencing many battles.

Sirfetch’d has a new attack: Meteor Assault.

Meteor Assault is a new move introduced in this generation 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.

As Sirfetch'd is exclusive to Sword, perhaps we'll find out about a  special Shield evolution soon?

Only Farfetch'd that have survived many battles can attain this evolution. When this Pokémon's leek withers, it will retire from combat.

Here are the Pokémon that you can find in Galar
