About

Sirfetch'd is an announced new Pokémon to appear in the upcoming eighth generation of main Pokémon games, Pokémon Sword and Shield. A fighting-type Pokémon, Sirfetch'd is a Galar-exclusive evolution of Farfetch'd, a dual normal and flying type introduced in the first generation of games. Sirfetch'd will be exclusive to Pokémon Sword. After the announcement of the Pokémon on September 18th, 2019, fans expressed their excitement and made jokes about its design.

Origin

On September 18th, 2019, The Official Pokémon YouTube Channel released a trailer introducing Sirfetch'd. The Pokémon shares a similar design to Farfetch'd, only colored white, given a more stern expression, and given a shield made out of a leaf. The description of Sirfetch'd in the trailer's description says, "Farfetch’d that inhabit the Galar region can evolve into Sirfetch’d after experiencing many battles." (shown below).



On the Pokémon website,[1] further descriptions for the Pokémon read:

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.
