The new Pokémon {{p|Sirfetch'd}} has been revealed for Pokémon Sword and Shield. {{p|Farfetch'd}} in the {{bp|Galar}} region can evolve into Sirfetch'd.
Sirfetch'd is exclusive to Pokémon Sword. It is {{type|Fighting}} and has the Ability {{a|Steadfast}}. It is 2'7" (0.8 m) tall and weighs 257.9 lbs. (117.0kg).
Sirfetch'd can learn the new move {{m|Meteor Assault}}, which is powerful but requires the user to recharge the next turn.
It is said that only Farfetch'd that have survived many battles can attain this evolution. 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, with a particularly famous painting depicting a battle between a Sirfetch'd and an {{p|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.
