Pokemon fans were stunned to see Sirfetch’d confirmed to be in Sword, but if you’re wondering what level Galarian Farfetch’d evolves at you might be disappointed. It doesn’t work like that.

For the vast majority of species included in the Pokedex, no matter what region they can be found in, there has always been a very simple way of getting them to move up their evolution chain.

Defeating other Pokemon and trainers in battles to receive XP has been the key, jumping up levels each time they defeat others – or, if you’re crafty, using an EXP Share also does the trick. From there, once a Pokemon reaches a certain level the famous music will start playing, the flashing lights begin and you find yourself with an evolved form.

Well, the Galarian Farfetch’d doesn’t really play by them rules.

The bird-type Pokemon was one of the original 151 entrants to the Pokedex, which is now known as Gen 1. It has waited 27 years for its moment, and now it actually can evolve, it’s not going to make things easy for you.

Battling others is a way of showing your Pokemon is ready to make the step up, whether it be jumping up levels, learning new moves naturally, or turning into a stronger version of itself.

With Farfetch’d in the Galar Region, though, you’re going to have to prove it’s strong enough to evolve into Sirfetch’d with more than one critical in a single battle. has revealed how Galarian Farfetch'd evolves in Pokemon Sword.

As seasoned veterans of the video game series will know already, you will often come up against random trainers on the fly, challenging you to duels and pitting their catches against yours.

When using Farfetch’d, you’re going to have to land a critical hit on three enemy Pokemon in one battle in order to evolve – according to – and there’s no specific level you can do this at!

This change might leave some players bewildered for a little while. Imagine leveling up your Farfetch’d to 99 without seeing it evolve, only to find out that it doesn’t work like that. Thankfully, you’ve saved all that time because you now know the trick!

Where to find Farfetch’d in Pokemon Sword

All of this information isn’t going to be very useful unless you actually have a Farfetch’d of your own to fight with. So, let’s talk about how to get one.

The Galarian form, which looks very different to the original that fans know and love, can be found on Route 5 in Sword and Shield. According to Reddit user Skormes, the encounter rate is slim for the species – sitting at 5% – although it’s a decent level once you do eventually find it, between 19-21.

Once you have caught one, remember to not waste too much time thinking about the levels if you want a Sirfetch’d. Have a crack at getting critical hits three times in a single fight!

The Pokemon Trading Card Game hobby was rocked in November when a man rediscovered his mind-blowing complete collection of the rare 1999 Base Set. The fan has stacks of every character, including hundreds of Charizards.

Despite releasing decades ago, the Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded on playgrounds and stuffed into 90s children’s binders are now selling for as much as a sports car. 

A man went viral after discovering their collection may be one of the most complete sets to ever exist. The fan’s unfathomable amount of rare collectibles could actually have an impact on the future of the hobby’s prices.

Pokemon fan discovers TCG collection is worth millions

Pokemon cards have never been more popular this year as the collectible hobby has now even taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Celebrities such as former rapper Logic are dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars to scoop up the rare Nintendo items. 

On November 22, a video went viral online of a man showing off his mind-blowing collection that has many collectors turning their heads. “Literally got all of my Pokemons stuff out of the loft from my recent move,” YouTuber PokeMans Alex explained before showing off his astonishing collection.

Holding up a stack of rare holographic cards from the 1999 base set, the fan exclaimed, “As you can see they are mint, and have not been touched for so long.” The TCG collector then revealed his unprecedented number of Charizards. “I don’t know if you are ready for this,” he warned, before holding up a stack of 111 cards of the rare starter ‘mon.

To put that into perspective, in October a PSA graded 10 of the same item is now selling for $30k alone. The content creator emptied over seven binders on his table to reveal a 1999 base set that was not only complete, but also had stacks of over 50 of the same card for every single character.“I’m ready to put all of these away back in the safe where they are now gonna stay,” he said.

Veteran Pokemon card YouTuber PokeRev reacted to the video on November 26 and exclaimed, “Did you open all these packs as a kid? It’s just an insane amount of holo cards. When we were kids, just to get a couple holos from the base set was really good. But to have thousands is insane!”

Other famous collectors such as British rapper Randolph commented, “Unreal mate.” Gaming YouTuber Ali A wrote, “How did you originally collect SO many cards!? Are you looking to sell any of them?”

At the time of writing, it’s unclear just how much the YouTuber’s incredible Pokemon haul is worth. None of the collectibles have actually been looked at by professional grading companies PSA or Beckett. And the majority of its value revolves around its condition and score.

A set of this magnitude is unprecedented and could have a severe impact on what TCG cards are worth in the future. A big factor in an item’s selling price hinges on it having a low population. PokeMans Alex’s collection could soon flood the market should he decide to get things graded.
