Too many swordies. Too many shieldies. Too many pokemanz. Too many ducks.

But not enough leeks...

I support

When asked which starter I shall use in Galar, the choice is obvious - Farfetch'd

Not usually one to throw my support behind characters that we don't even have enough information about to really create a moveset for without taking extensive liberties, but I can't deny that I Sirfetch'd in Smash...even more so than some other characters I had wanted. Is that bad? Don't answer that just put me on the supporter list. This option is not as r'duckulous as it seems.

Not to distract from the majesty of Sirfetch'd, but I do wonder what will be the shield equivalent to him. That's typically how it goes when it comes to Pokémon, so it will likely be the same here. I just hope it's another less focused on Pokémon getting some love.

Whatever it is, $100 bucks says it's a ghost

Yeah, I agree that it will likely be a ghost, considering the exclusive gyms. It's just a question of which Pokémon, and considering Farfetche'd went from a normal flying type to a fighting type, we have a lot to consider.

It's probably not going to be, but I'd like to see it be Dunsparce.

I saw on /vp/ that some people have "heard rumors" it's going to be Lapras, but the affleck leak only mentioned Lapras getting a Gigantomax form

If there is any Pokémon that really needs the attention, it's Dunsparce. Curious how they turn him into a ghost type. Maybe they can do something with the little wings on it's back for an aestetic.

If that's the case, then I doubt Lapras is getting anything else. Seems like something that would be a hard to miss, especially when you have already gotten big info on the Pokémon.

Alternatively, apparently there is a rumor out there that an electric type chatot will be it's counterpart. With is just weird to me

Damn, and here I was planning on getting the Shield version. GameFreak has been knocking it out of the park with these new pokemon designs. And yeah, I'm down with Sirfetch'd for Smash.

Guys, he’s doom to fail.

Once his leek withers, it’s a OHKO and all stocks lost/permanent death.

It kind of annoys me that people keep calling his leak a sword. It's a long stick with no blade but a pointy tip. It's clearly a lance. Y'all need to go play Fire Emblem and educate yourselves on medieval weaponry. Now if you'll you excuse me, I have some nails I need to hammer in with my favorite axe.

(Also hi Noipoi)

Everyone knows the weapon triangle from Fire Emblem

Sword - Axe - Bigger Sword

I never really realized that farfetched was supposed to be a duck, until I saw his S&S evolution. Which is great 'cause now I'm imagining him as Donald Duck's badass cousin. Also, how much y'all wanna bet the first move he learns is Leaf Blade?

I'm working up a moveset(s? I think there may actually end up being 2 different ones) if you like them when I get done feel free to post them in the OP. If you don't like them then...ummm...I will hit you with a leek!

I personally think it might be Obstagoon.
Speaking of Obstagoon this thread has literally one upped it in the time of two days.
So now support wise you guys are tied with the Galar starters as the most wanted galar pokemon
The highest is the Zacian and Zamazenta thread
We also need a supporters list lol

I may try a wild guess and say that we’ll se an Evolution for Dunsparce exclusive to Sword. After all, Farfetch’d and Dunsparce’s evolutions were kind of a meme. Maybe Dunsparce will become Ghost (gym theory), Dragon, or Normal in any combination.

I don't think it's Obstagoon, as it's not shield exclusive.

You know, its really unusual for a pokemon to not retain either typing from its base form. The only instances I can think of off the top of my head are Eevee, Azurill (who got retconned in gen 6), and Alolan Marowak.

Part of me wonders if Sir'fetched was originally designed as a regional variant, but was changed to be an evolution later in development. It does look an awful lot like its base form.

Normal/ghost dunsparce evolution would be amazing. 3 immunities, 1 weakness if I'm doing the math right. That's just r'duckulous (no I'm not going to stop saying that).

When we started seeing more Pokemon from SwSh, I was firm in my stance that it'd be lame to see any of the newer Pokemon in Smash.

Then Sirfetch'd happened and I changed my mind. This knight saved my heart from the depths. Look at that smug duck. This duck queen approves.

I don't have a good reason for this, but I think Sirfetch'd and Geno would get along really well together. They both seem like really noble fighters.
