Sirfetch'd revealed as exclusive Pokemon for Pokemon Sword and the Internet goes wild
Sirfetch'd, a brand new Galar evolution for Farfetch'd, has been revealed as an exclusive for Pokemon Sword, and the internet has gone suitably wild for the dashing leek-swordsman.
The look of smugness and heroism from Sirfetch'd, as well as an anime style Japanese trailer, has made him an instant favourite of the Pokemon community and seems to have swayed a lot of people towards Sword. More Pokemon seem primed to be revealed soon, presumably as exclusives to Shield.
Check out the gallery and pres-release below to find out more information about everyone's new favourite Pokemon. Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield will release on November 15 for Nintendo Switch.

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.
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.
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.
