In Pokémon GO, Farfetch’d from the Galar region can evolve into Sirfetch’d, a Pokémon that fights like a knight. The process requires a few extra steps, but in general, getting the new pocket monster is quite simple. Find out below how to evolve Farfetch’d to Sirfetch’d.
Farfetch’d Generation 1 or Galar?
There are two types of Farfetch’d in Pokémon GO. The first and best known is the first generation, which belongs to the list of 151 original Pokémon. However, this is one of the few pocket monsters in the game restricted to a specific region. This, for example, only appears in Japan and South Korea.
The second type is the Farfetch’d from the Galar region, which is slightly different. It was introduced in Pokémon GO for all players, and can be hatched into 7 km eggs, which you get from friends.
Galar’s Farfetch’d cannot be captured in the open world normally, only during events.
To get a Sirfetch’d, you will have to evolve Farfetch’d from Galar. Farfetch’d Generation 1 does not evolve.
How to evolve Farfetch’d to Sirfetch’d
To evolve Farfetch’d from Galar, you will have to define it as your new Pokémon companion, the one who walks with you and gives you candy.
Here’s how to do it:
- Open Pokémon GO and tap your profile;
- Touch your companion pokémon;
- Slide the screen down and tap “Change companion”;
- Touch the “Yes” button;
- In the Pokémon list, tap on Galar’s Farfetch’d and it will become your new companion;
With Farfetch’d from Galar as your companion, you’ll earn Farfetch’d candy as you walk and play. Accumulate at least 50 of them.
While accumulating the sweets, make 10 excellent moves when capturing Pokémon. Even if the Pokémon escapes or escapes, the play will be counted in the same way.
If you exchange Farfetch’d from Galar for another companion Pokémon, there is no problem either. The number of excellent moves will not be erased, and will continue to be valid until it reaches the required 10. However, excellent plays with other monsters as a companion do not count.
After reaching 10 excellent moves, and having 50 Farfetch’d sweets in your inventory, do the following:
- On the main screen, touch the Poké Ball and then “Pokémon”;
- In the Pokémon list, tap on Galar’s Farfetch’d;
- Touch “Evolve” and then “Yes”;
After following the step-by-step how to evolve Farfetch’d, the Galar monster will become Sirfetch’d, a medieval knight-style fighting Pokémon.
