Nintendo revealed some new information about Pokémon Sword and Shield for NIntendo Switch. The release of the games is fast approaching, and the developers are clearly not done surprising us!
A few days earlier, a glitch had been seen on the official Pokémon website. Now we know that the mysterious Pokémon is in fact a Farfetch'd from the Galar region! However, it will be exclusive to the Pokémon Sword version of the game.
Sirfetch’d has a new attack: Meteor Assault.
Meteor Assault is a new move introduced in this generation 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.
As Sirfetch'd is exclusive to Sword, perhaps we'll find out about a special Shield evolution soon?
Only Farfetch'd that have survived many battles can attain this evolution. When this Pokémon's leek withers, it will retire from combat.
Discover the complete list of Pokémon in the Galar regional Pokédex on the upcoming Nintendo Switch game: Sword and Shield. This list is not exhaustive and is based on trailers and different images of the game.
