    Regarding its design.. I really like the play on the 'Onion Knight' trope, as in a Knight from a lowly or less fortunate background and so it reflects Farfetch'd's time as a pretty terrible Pokemon stats-wise.

    I think a Ghost or Ghost/Flying type Chatot evolution would make more sense. Sword has the fighting type gym leader.

    If the Sword exclusive is Sirfetch 'd then the Shield exclusive must be a single stage Pokemon that also gets a Galarian evolution. Maybe a Pokemon that becomes Ghost typing?

    Oh I know. It's just trying to find someone to trade with on the GTS that isn't asking for ubers or impossible trades is a bit of a pain.

    Could someone link me to the original JP Sirfetch’d reveal? I can only find LQ screen recordings of it

    I could see them go completely left field and give something like Stantler a Galarian evo, as Stantler was hunted close to extinction and Farfetch'd nearly went extinct as well.

    Some more reckless Stats speculation:

    Sirfetch'd:
    HP: 72
    Attack: 120
    Defense: 105
    Sp. Attack: 68
    Sp. Defense: 82
    Speed: 50
    Total: 497

    Basically, a sturdier version of Farfetch'd. I also believe that Sirfetch'd would be a bit slower than Farfetch'd, considering its weight and playstyle.

    And the fact that it wields a stalk of green onion as a weapon. I didn’t notice the onion knight reference at first, but now, I can appreciate the design a lot more.

    Maybe something related to Caribbean folklore? There's a sizable population of people of Caribbean heritage living in the UK.

    I love Farfetch'd is now promoted from an iconically unremarkable single evolution to an impressive pre-evolution, just like Sneasel and Murkrow.

    You see many fans wanting to give it some love and now they can, even more so if we get pre-evo buffs like the Eviolite.

  12. I usually find that the easiest solution is to BE the person who isn't asking for an uber or impossible trade. If you're looking for a version exclusive from the other game, put a version exclusive from your game in GTS and ask for the thing you're looking for. Let them come to you.

    Sirfetchd is pretty cool. I'm surprised it's only in Sword (though I'm getting sword). I wonder what shield will be getting.

    I flat out refuse to trade on GTS because of all the hacks/clones. There are reddit communities for legitimate trades. Despite being Australian (so having wonky times compared to Americans) I’m able to trade Pokémon without much issue

    I'll just breed my starter, a starter is worth any Pokemon from what I can tell.

    I actually really like Sirfetch'd, it's insane seeing a Farfetch'd evo after all these years and I love the comically oversized weapons. Glad it's a regular evo too and there's seemingly no new Farfetch'd form.

    Disappointed that's all they revealed though, you'd think they'd at least show the Shield exclusive. They're being weirdly tight lipped about these games.

    I was expecting Farfetch'd to get a Galar form too.

    So far Zigzagoon is the only full "Galar form" Line

    Still can't believe they went with Sirfetch’d over the much more obvious choice: Galarfetch'd.
     
  19. Still no starters evos
