Following a week of glitchy teasing, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield’s newest Pokemon has been revealed: Sirfetch’d, Farfetch’d’s evolution.
Exclusive to Pokemon Sword, this is a new addition to the Galar area. Sirfetch’d is a tiny white fowl adorned with a vegetable lance and shield. Stated to have evolved right after experiencing numerous battles, this knightly Pokemon is identified for battling relatively. It is so noble that it is regularly selected as a motif for paintings, one particular of the most well-known depicting a duel among a Sirfetch’d and an Escavalier.
In battle, Sirfetch’d makes use of the sharp stalk of its leek as a lance and the thick leaves as a shield. It maintains this leek more than the span of numerous years and treasures it extra than something. When its leek ultimately withers, Sirfetch’d will leave the battlefield and retire from battling completely.
Meteor Assault is a new move introduced in this generation that only Sirfetch’d can understand. Sirfetch’d points its leek at the opponent and charges toward them at fantastic speed. This move is devastatingly highly effective, but forces Sirfetch’d to skip its subsequent turn. This is fairly clearly a physical clone of Hyper Beam, but the further detail is appreciated.
Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are due out for Nintendo Switch on November 15th.
