After 23 years of waiting the Pokémon Company has revealed the next evolution of Farfetch’d. The next evolution has been added to the Pokédex of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. The next evolution is known as Sirfetch’d.
The Pokémon will wield its signature melee leek weapon, which is now modified with a defensive shield. The Pokémon will be exclusive to Pokémon Sword.
According to the description of the new Pokémon, “Farfetch’d that inhabit the Galar region can evolve into Sirfetch’d after experiencing many battles. hey 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.”

Farfetch’d isn’t the first classic Pokemon to get a region exclusive evolution in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Linoone’s Galarian form received its brand new Obstagoon evolution and Weezing now has a new Galarian form.
