Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread

Does this idea seem at all plausible to you?

  1. Nah

  2. Yep

    You know it kind of feels weird that the only gen 8 version exclusive pokemon that we know of are the mascot legendaries of Sword & Shield Zacian and Zamazenta, and even then they technically haven't been confirmed to be version exclusive. Although in all likelihood they will most likely be version exclusive unless they pull a Gold & Silver where they are both available to catch in both games and which one you catch during the story and which one winds up making you wait until the post game depends on your version. Although they haven't done something like that since Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and Soul Silver.

    Actually we do know some other Pokémon, Goomy and Larvitar for Shield and Jangmo-o and Deino for Sword.

    Ah, that makes more sense.

    If it's one singular type, e.g. a Normal type becoming Water, then that's plausible. In the case of Farfetch'd having two, Normal/Flying, and completely dropping both for a completely different typing, pure Fighting, is something we've never seen.

    Not to weigh in on the likelihood of a Galarian Farfetch'd, but we already have one type being dropped for two new ones in Cubone to Alolan Marowak. I don't see why a hypothetical situation of Farfetch'd dropping two types for one new one is such a radical step from that.

    I explained this earlier however Cubone evolving into alolan marowak makes sense because Kanto marowak already exists. Cubone into Kanto marowak makes sense as they are ground to ground. So again having a normal/flying farfetch'd evolve into a fighting sirfetch'd makes no sense.

    That makes absolutely no sense. If the issue is the drastic change in typing, why does it matter if the situation behind the drastic type change is a new form of a pre-existing Pokemon or a new one? Whether there already existed an evolution that didn't drastically change type has no bearing on the fact that, here and now, the Ground type Cubone can evolve into the Fire/Ghost Alolan Marowak.

    And Farfetch'd not getting a Galarian Form and then evolving into Sirfetch'd would be little different; the only difference is that there isn't a pre-existing Normal/Flying Sirfetch'd, and I fail to see why that matters. The end result is still a complete change in typing, so if it's fine in one case, it's exceedingly arbitrary to say it isn't in the other.

    Eevee changes type upon evolution from Normal to either Water, Electric, Fire, Psychic, Dark, Grass, Ice or Fairy depending on if it evolves into Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon or Sylveon. Surskit the Water-type evolves into Masquerain the Flying-type, and when Swablu becomes Altaria, the Normal type becomes the Dragon-type. Aggron, when it Mega evolves into Mega Aggron, goes from Steel/Rock to being pure Steel. And Gloom loses its Poison typing upon evolving into Bellossom. When it comes to Pokémon Evolution, not all Pokémon typings have to make sense, and Eevee is the perfect example of this.

    Maybe Sirfetch'd's leek and shield are too heavy so they can't fly. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Yes, but they all retain at least one type. In Eevee's case, it is only one type that changes, so it isn't anything drastic. I was going to mention Alolan Marowak too, but however it gains two completely new typings from its pre-evolution. In the case of Farfetch'd if it just loses both Normal/Flying to become Fighting, that isn't something we've seen, but it is entirely possible.

    The glitched Pokèmon is pretty heavy to be fair

    This is what I’d assumed.

    I'm thinking Galarian farfetch'd lost its normal/flying became a fighting type because predators in it's habit kept attacking farfetch'd in air, those grounding farfetch'd. Then to adapt to being on the ground farfetch'd had to develop new ways to attack and defend itself.

    This would fit the description right on the website.

    Today marks exactly two more months until SWSH release!
    Either tomorrow, Tuesday or Wednesday is my guess. No reasoning for it: just a gut feeling

    Currently trying to decipher the descriptions of the glitched Pokemon by comparing them to different languages and it's fun.

    Yes, until there is an official confirmation, we can't rule out Normal/Flying Farfetch'd evolving or a Galarian Farfetch'd.

    Eevee, Cubone, and Azurill (before the Fairy-type) all gain new primary types when evolving, and lose their original types all together. Exeggucute also loses its Psychic for Dragon when evolving in Alola. Skrelp and Scorupi also lose one type when evolving. It would be nice to have some more Pokemon change type upon evolution. It would be cool if Farfetch'd was the first one to lose two types and turn into one. In real life, evolution doesn't always add, but sometimes takes away. The same concept can be applied to type changes.

    I’d think it’s pretty likely we get some SwSh news around the time of the anime announcement next week? Since that will involve Galar too
