How to get Galarian Farfetch’d and best movesets in Pokémon Go

Galarian Farfetch’d is now available.

Galarian Farfetch’d is now available for everyone to find in Pokémon Go. The Pokémon from the Sword and Shield games is wandering around Pokémon Go, available for every trainer to try and capture. Its arrival was released during the Pokémon Presents live stream on June 17.

You won’t have to do anything special to catch this Pokémon, merely find it wandering the wild like any other Pokémon you can encounter in your region. However, it is slightly different than its traditional counterpart. For one, the conventional Farfetch’d is a Flying and Normal-type Pokémon and carries a small leek in its left arm. A Galarian Farfetch’d has a darker coat, a much more massive leek in its right hand that it carries over its shoulder, and is a Fighting-type.

Galarian Farfetch’d best movesets

The Galarian Farfetch’d is slightly stronger than its regular version. It can have a max CP of 1,674, an attack of 174, a defense of 114, and a defense of 141. Of the moves available to it, your best options include it knowing Fury Cutter and Leaf Blade, Rock Smash and Brave Bird, or Rock Smash and Leaf Blade.

Can you evolve Galarian Farfetch’d into a Sir Farfetch’d?

Unfortunately, you cannot evolve Galarian Farfetch’d into Sir Farfetch’d at this time. Sir Farfetch’d is not available in Pokémon Go. After you capture the Galarian Pokémon, you can click on it in your main roster and see there is no option to evolve it. We don’t know when this will become available to players. Still, it will likely unlock in the future, given that more and more Galarian Pokémon are available in the mobile game as time goes on.
