Sirfetch’d Revealed from ‘Pokemon Sword & Shield’

Following a glitch caused by Rotom, was now able to reveal Sirfetch’d!

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 is categorized as the Wild Duck Pokemon, is Fighting-type, is 2’7” tall, weighs 257.9 lbs, and has the Steadfast Ability.

Sirfetch’d is exclusive to Pokemon Sword.


Do you give a flying duck about this leek? What do you think of Sirfetch’d? :p

    Someone finally mentioned it up: How could Normal/Flying become a pure Fihhting? It even has a clearly visible wings, although it uses 'em as so-called “hands” to hold his Sword and Shield

    I'm a bit sad, when you realize, that the ONLY one Pokémon from Gen I that wasn't in ANY relationship with antyhing else get a new evolution and there're still more non-gen I Pokémon without any evo...

    Did you even try to read that paragraph correctly, or did you give up halfway?

    True, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon only sold 8.3 million copies. You're almost there, at the 0.01% mark!
    You have no statistics to prove otherwise, but I've used the next best thing. Somehow people who bought Sun & Moon aren't "players" in your mind? But thanks for being passive-aggressive when proven wrong!

    True that. I think Misdreavus got a boost as low as +60 BST. I'm hoping that Sirfetch'd gets bumped up to 500 BST or higher. I'm also thinking that a Speed drop is quite possible (given how slow everything was in gen 7), so they could maybe re-purpose that into Attack / Defence.

    My speculation is that Sirfetch'd is probably going to be fine for in-game use. In competitive singles (which is all I really care about TBH) it will have a lot of competition from the likes of Conkeldurr as a slow wall breaker. If we assume it gets base 130 Attack (seems reasonable) and Cross Chop, it could do a lot of damage with Stick. I got bored so I decided to run some hypothetical calcs for fun:

    252+ Atk Machamp Cross Chop vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Skarmory on a critical hit: 153-181 (45.8 - 54.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
    252+ Atk Machamp Cross Chop vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Magearna on a critical hit: 240-283 (66.1 - 77.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
    252+ Atk Machamp Cross Chop vs. 252 HP / 24 Def Ferrothorn on a critical hit: 420-494 (119.3 - 140.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

    -1 252+ Atk Machamp Leaf Blade vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Landorus-Therian on a critical hit: 176-208 (55.1 - 65.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
    252+ Atk Machamp Leaf Blade vs. 244 HP / 0 Def Gliscor on a critical hit: 135-159 (38.3 - 45.1%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Stealth Rock and Poison Heal
    252+ Atk Machamp Leaf Blade vs. 252 HP / 200+ Def Rotom-Wash on a critical hit: 234-276 (76.9 - 90.7%) -- 25% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery

    252+ Atk Machamp Night Slash vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Tornadus-Therian on a critical hit: 151-178 (41.7 - 49.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
    252+ Atk Machamp Night Slash vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Volcarona on a critical hit: 179-211 (57.5 - 67.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock
    252+ Atk Machamp Night Slash vs. 252 HP / 212+ Def Reuniclus on a critical hit: 228-270 (53.7 - 63.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery

    252+ Atk Machamp First Impression vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Alakazam-Mega: 306-360 (121.9 - 143.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO
    252+ Atk Machamp First Impression vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Greninja-Ash: 298-352 (104.5 - 123.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO

    Not bad. First Impression in particular seems nice, I didn't realise how badly OU wanted Bug priority. Gliscor can't Roost on you so Sirfetch'd would win. And if it keeps Defiant, then Lando-T would obviously be murdered.

    Ah I kind of like this to be honest, we don't often get evolutions which completely switch up the typing. In this context it makes sense: It becomes a fighter whose gear is far too heavy to fly with (it's now like +200 lbs but still the same height). I didn't like the design too much originally, but I think it's growing on me. It's a neat direction to take Farfetch'd.

    The relevant section is quoted above.

    Saying you're right doesn't make you right. You've assumed I am arguing the opposite. I'm not. You said I think Sun & Moon owners are not players. I never said that. Your math was and is flawed... and you've reduced the percentage even though you added copies sold. As though copies sold are an indication of how many VGC players there are or aren't? Ok.

    I take a passive aggressive stance with anyone who doesn't argue in good faith--its more than they deserve, no matter how trivial the topic.

    You might have not got the hint, so I'll spell it out for you - 1% is your best case. If we assume your best case, the numbers become wildly improbable.

    Yes, I've assumed you had an argument. Maybe I was mistaken.
    "you've reduced the percentage even though you added copies sold" - I did not add anything. The VGC was played on Ultra SM and I've used that number instead. As such, the percentage has increased. If I'd add copies, the percentage would decrease (more copies sold against the same number of Pokemon Championship viewers). I think you should get a grasp of that before calling out "flawed math".
    Just to amuse you, I used the latest number (ORAS at 14 million, which puts the 1% mark at 14000). I am yet to find any VGC-related number that comes even close.

    I'd take a constructive stance over a passive-aggressive stance any day of the week.
