The Pokemon Company has issued an official announcement for the just-revealed Sirfetch’d. We also have a few screenshots/art giving us a closer look at the Pokemon.

Here’s the full roundup:

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced today that a new Pokémon has been discovered in the Galar region: Sirfetch’d, the Wild Duck Pokémon. Sirfetch’d will appear in the highly anticipated upcoming video game, Pokémon Sword. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield launch November 15, 2019, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch system.

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.
