Sirfetch’d Is The Farfetch’d Evolution We’ve All Been Waiting For

As the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield inches closer every day, fans are itching to discover the new Pokemon that will be joining them on their adventure in the Galar region.

This morning welcomed the arrival of Sirfetch’d – a pure fighting type Pokemon that evolves from fan favourite Farfetch’d.

Sirfetch’d wields a mighty sword and shield and has the ability to learn ‘Meteor Assault’, a two turn attack that requires Sirfetch’d to recharge after using it.

Sirfetch’d is a Pokemon Sword exclusive, which begs the question, will there be a first gen evolution exclusive to Pokemon Shield?

Here are the version exclusives revealed thus far:

Pokemon Exclusive to Sword: Deino, Zweilous, Hydreigon, Jangmo-o, Hakamo-o, Kommo-o, Sirfetch’d

Pokemon Exclusive to Shield: Larvitar, Pupitar, Tyranitar, Goomy, Sliggoo, Goodra
