The official Pokemon account shared news of a brand new Pokemon coming exclusively to Pokemon Sword! This Pokemon is a Galarian evolution of Farfetch’d, elegantly named Sirfetch’d. He’s a wild duck Pokemon and a fighting type:

Sirfetch'd

Here’s an overview from the official Pokemon page:

A noble knight that fights fair and square

The Farfetch’d of the Galar region can evolve into Sirfetch’d after experiencing many battles. 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.

Its irreplaceable leek has seen many battles

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.

Witness Meteor Assault, the signature move of Sirfetch’d!

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.
