Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have revealed a new Galar region evolution for the leek wielding Pokémon, Farfetch’d, which will be called Sirfetch’d.
As well as vegetable-based weaponry, Sirfetch’d also has an exclusive move called Meteor Assault, which you can see in the trailer above. This signature attack sees Sirfetch’d charge its opponent with its leek at great speed, but while it’s said to be “devastatingly powerful”, it also leaves the duck Pokémon “unable to take action” immediately after using it.
Here’s a bit more on Sirfetch’d’s background:
“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.”
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are out 15 November on Nintendo Switch.
