Pokémon GO Farfetch’d Raid Guide

Here’s some frequently asked questions and important tips about Farfetch’d raids in Pokémon GO for February 2021.

When do Farfetch’d Raids Begin and End in February 2021

Farfetch’d will begin appearing in three star raids in Pokémon GO on Saturday, February 20 at 9 am in your local time zone during the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event. They will only be found in these raids through the end of the day when Pokémon GO Fest: Kanto ends at 9 pm local time.

How Many Players are Needed

Farfetch’d may be a three star raid, but this one is one of the easiest of the bunch. Unless you are underleveled and have no Pokemon counters, one person can take down Farfetch’d, though more can always make the raid go even faster.

What CP for 100% IVs for Farfetch’d

Farfetch’d will be encountered at 657 CP to 706 CP. The higher CP means it is 100% perfect in terms of IVs so you should do your best to catch it if you’re lucky enough to find one.

Can Farfetch’d be Shiny, How to Get Shiny Farfetch’d

Yes, shiny Farfetch’d is possible to catch in February 2021 in Pokémon GO during Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto, though shiny Farfetch’d has been available in the past as well in parts of Asia. Your odds of catching one should be somewhere in the range of one in twenty, though Niantic likes to tweak this a lot without making any announcements. The more raids you win the better chances you have at a shiny Farfetch’d, so you will want to make sure to keep raiding until you finally find one.
