We saw a dangerous duck for the first time Wednesday as the Pokemon Company and Nintendo showcased new Pokemon Sirfetch’d, which you’ll be able to add to your collection in Pokemon Sword and Shield, which hit Nintendo Switch on Nov. 15.  It evolves from Farfetch’d and is a Sword version exclusive, so Shield players will have to trade for it.

“In battle, Sirfetch’d uses the sharp stalk of its leek as a lance and the thick leaves as a shield,” its Pokedex entry reads. “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.”

Sirfetch’d is an evolution of Farfetch’d.

It’s the only Pokemon that can learn new move Meteor Assault, which sees Sirfetch’d point its leek at the opponent and charge at toward them. It’s a powerful attack, but Sirfetch’d has to spend a turn recovering afterwards.
