Sirfetch'd (Japanese: ネギガナイト Negigaknight) is a Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

It evolves from Galarian Farfetch'd after landing three critical hits in a single battle.

Biology

 
Sirfetch'd losing to an Escavalier

Sirfetch'd is an avian Pokémon that resembles a white duck, standing no taller than its pre-evolved form Farfetch'd and retaining its yellow beak, brown eyes, and eyebrow-like marking. Its legs and webbed feet are colored yellow, while the three-feather crest on its head and stubby tail are white. Its wings serve as humanoid hands, with the feathers at the end resembling fingers. It carries a massive leek in two parts, wielding the long, sharpened stalk as a lance and using the hard leaves as a shield.

It is said that this evolution was attained by a Farfetch'd who experienced and survived many battles. It is known to be calm and collected, preferring to fight fairly. Due to its noble nature, Sirfetch'd is often chosen as a motif for paintings; one famous painting in the Galar region shows a Sirfetch'd duelling with an Escavalier. The leek it carries is its most prized possession, having maintained it for many years. Once the leek finally withers, Sirfetch'd will retire from battle for good.[1]

Sirfetch'd and Farfetch'd are the only Pokémon capable of using the Leek item.

Sirfetch'd is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Meteor Assault.

Trivia

 
Pixelated Sirfetch'd before its official announcement
  • Sirfetch'd was first teased on Pokémon Sword and Shield's official website on September 13, 2019, with its appearance, name, category, and height heavily pixelated — the image was also rotated 90° left, and then horizontally inverted. On the Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese official websites, its name was partially revealed. The link to the page played a Rotom's cry when clicked, implicating it as the cause of the data corruption.
    • The revealed parts of the Japanese, Korean, and Chinese were: ナイト naito (Japanese), 나이트 naiteu (Korean) and 兵 bīng (Chinese).
  • Sirfetch'd and Farfetch'd are the only Pokémon with an apostrophe in their names.
  • Despite "sir" being a male honorific, Sirfetch'd are equally likely to be female.
  • Sirfetch'd can be seen as a parallel to Cursola. Both of their pre-evolved form's original forms do not evolve, and they both change types while remaining single-typed. Bea uses Sirfetch'd in her team in Sword in the Stow-on-Side Gym and during the Champion Cup Finals, while Allister uses Cursola in his team in Shield.
  • Galarian Farfetch'd was released shortly after Meowth and Zigzagoon in Pokémon GO. Although they could evolve into Perrserker and Obstagoon upon release, respectively, Galarian Farfetch'd couldn't evolve into Sirfetch'd at the time. This was later added to coincide with the release of the Crown Tundra for Pokémon Sword & Shield's Expansion Pass on October 22, 2020.

Origin

Sirfetch'd appears to be based on a Pekin duck and a knight armed with a sword and shield. Like Farfetch'd, it may be inspired by the Japanese saying 「鴨が葱を背負って来る」, literally translating to "a duck comes bearing bunching onions". As a saying, it means "something surprising but convenient". Sirfetch'd may also be based on Sir Lancelot du Lac, one of the members of the Knights of the Round Table. In Arthurian legend, before he revealed his identity to King Arthur, he was known as the "White Knight" for his white armor. In addition, it may also come from the lancelot leek which is a wild onion variant that is named after him.

Name origin

Sirfetch'd may be a combination of sir and far-fetched.

Negigaknight may be a combination of 葱 negi (bunching onion), the prefix giga-, and knight. It may also be a pun on 葱がないと negi ga nai to (must have a bunching onion).
