The Pokémon Company revealed more information on Pokémon Sword and Shield today, September 18, via a new trailer and plenty of new things regarding the Galar region. Pokémon Sword and Shield are set to launch worldwide on November 15 for Nintendo Switch.
A noble knight that fights fair and square
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.
Its irreplaceable leek has seen many battles
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.
Witness Meteor Assault, the signature move of Sirfetch’d!
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.
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING WEBSITE GLITCHES
We would like to apologize for a series of glitches that affected the appearance of images and text on our page that was meant to announce a new Pokémon that has been discovered to appear in the Galar region. As of Wednesday, September 18, 2019, the error has been corrected.
We have learned that the incident was caused by a mischievous wild Rotom that entered our servers, causing a temporary disruption to our website. Fortunately, our IT team members—skilled Pokémon Trainers in their own right—were able to convince the Rotom to leave our system and return to where it normally resides.
With that issue cleared up, we are now free to finally present detailed information about the newly discovered Pokémon found to appear in Pokémon Sword. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
