Sirfetch’d is a new Fighting-type evolution of Farfetch’d that was first revealed on September 18, 2019. Unlike its previous evolutionary form, Sirfetch’d is pure Fighting-type. It is exclusive to Pokémon Sword.
It knows the new move Meteor Assault, which is a very powerful move, but puts great strain on Sirfetch’d, causing it to wait a turn to recover after using it — presumably like Hyper Beam.
Sirfetch’d’s Evolution Line
Sirfetch’d evolves from Galarian Farfetch’d. It does so by landing three critical hits in a single battle. It doesn’t have to gain a level after the battle in order to evolve, as long as it lands all three critical hits in that battle.
A good way to do this is to use a Dire Hit on it and/or use the move Focus Energy to raise its critical hit rate, then use moves that a wild Pokémon resist, such as Fighting-type moves against Wobbuffet on Route 5 (the earliest you can find Galarian Farfetch’d in the wild).
More Information About Sirfetch’d
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.Official press release
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.
