Pokemon Sword and Shield – How To Evolve Galarian Farfetch’d Into Sirfetch’d

One of the most complicated evolutions in the game.

by Dean James


The Pokemon franchise has had a lot of different Pokemon in it over the years and in that time there have also been various methods of evolution. You have the regular level-based evolutions, as well as those that require evolution stones. Then there are others that may require specific stats for happiness or something, but the brand new Galarian Farfetch’d may just about take the cake with a very complicated method of evolution. This guide will detail just how you can evolve Galarian Farfetch’d into Sirfetch’d in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

How To Evolve Galarian Farfetch’d Into Sirfetch’d

We’ve already covered in another guide how you can find Galarian Farfetch’d exclusively in Pokemon Sword, but we did not cover the evolution process for the Pokemon. Whether you catch Galarian Farfetch’d in Sword or have received it as a trade in Shield, the evolution process will be the same.

First of all, there is no certain level that Galarian Farfetch’d evolves at. Instead, there is a requirement that you must meet to trigger the evolution upon the completion of a trainer battle.

To get your Galarian Farfetch’d to evolve to Sirfetch’d, you must have your Galarian Farfetch’d land three critical hits within one singular trainer battle. This obviously does not have to be against one single Pokemon, but it has to be within the same trainer battle. This is definitely a difficult task to pull off considering you not only have to get the three critical hits, but also find trainers with enough Pokemon to do it against.

The key to pulling this off is going to be to boost your odds of landing critical hits. To help boost your odds, you should makes sure to get some Dire Hit items to boost you critical hit chances. You can also use the move Focus Energy if you have it to boost your chances in battle as well. This one may seem pretty daunting to execute in one battle, but having these can definitely improve your odds of pulling it off and obtaining Sirfetch’d.
