A new Pokemon has been confirmed for Pokemon Sword And Shield, a new evolution of a monster that has appeared in the series in the very first entries.
Today, it's been confirmed that Sirfetch'd, Farfetch'd evolution, will appear in the Galar region. Details on the monster's combat abilities have also been revealed, including a brand new special move that can only be learned by Sirfetch'd, and you can find them below.
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.
Dave recently had the chance to try out Pokemon Sword and Shield, noting how the games will definitely be fun, even though they may not be the best entries in the series.
As far as Pokémon demos go, it’s pretty simple and what you would expect from a Pokémon game, not really letting me see anything of the open-world or anything outside of the gym, for that matter. But despite that, I had great fun playing the game, and although it’s certainly possible that Sword & Shield won’t turn out to be the very best Pokémon games ever, I think they’re still going to be a lot of fun.
Pokemon Sword And Shield launch on Nintendo Switch worldwide on November 15th.
