The Pokémon Company has revealed a new Pokémon exclusive to Pokémon Sword. Sirfetch’d will be an evolution of the Generation I Pokémon Farfetch’d.
Sirfetch’d still wields the signature leek weapon, but it has now been extended to a lance; they also carry a shield made of what appears to be outer leek leaves.
Sirfetch’d will also be able to perform a new exclusive move, Meteor Assault. The Pokémon website describes the move like so: “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.”
CATEGORY: Wild Duck Pokémon
WEIGHT: 257.9 lbs.
You can read more about Sirfetch’d and other new Pokémon on the official website. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will launch on Nintendo Switch on November 15th, 2019.
