Who's that new mystery Pokemon? It's Sirfetch'd!

Sirfetch’dddddddddd!

Game Freak has been teasing a new Pokémon reveal for today, and I think everyone wins with this one.

It's called "Sirfetch’d," a clear take on the "Sir" knighting nomenclature and the OG creature Farfetch'd. The new take retains its trademark leek weaponry (it's a lance now), and as a note, Sirfetch’d is exclusive to Pokémon Sword. Sirfetch’d is actually an evolution of its predecessor, which is triggered "after experiencing many battles." You can find its full statline below.

As usual there's a gigantic lore-based reason for everything, and this has to be the most wholesome bit: "It maintains this leek over the span of many years and treasures it more than anything." I also dig the "you mad?" look in the trailer thumbnail. This is one of the sassiest Pokémon yet.

Sirfetch’d
Category: Wild Duck Pokémon
Type: Fighting
Height: 2’7”
Weight: 257.9 lbs.
Ability: Steadfast

"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."
