This Galarian Farfetch'd is a Fighting-type Pokémon owned by Ash Ketchum and the first Pokémon he caught in the Galar region, as well as the fourth Pokémon he caught during his journey around the world with Goh.


Farfetch'd is a competitive and experienced battler who's always looking to push its limits, even when it's at a disadvantage. Ever since meeting and battling it, Farfetch'd has come to consider Riolu its sparring partner, much like Ash's Scraggy being sparring partners with Iris' Axew. Also, similar to Riolu, Farfetch'd was known to pick fights with other Pokémon prior to being captured.

It is mostly known for making a “bring it on” (“come on” in Japanese) gesture when challenging its opponents to a combat.

Farfetch'd meeting Ash for the first time in the Galar region.

Before encountering Ash and Goh, Farfetch'd had managed to defeat a trainer's Chewtle. Goh tried to catch it and ordered his Kantonian Farfetch'd to battle against it, but both attempts failed due to the Galarian Farfetch'd being more experienced. In the beginning, Farfetch'd saw through the strategies of Ash's Riolu and beat it up.

However, Farfetch'd was beaten by Riolu, who after some encouragement from Ash, turned the tables around. Farfetch'd was cheered on by Ash and wanted to continue, but ended up passing out due to fatigue. After being healed at a Pokémon Center, Farfetch'd was deeply impressed by Ash's battling skills, and allowed itself to be captured by him. After being brought out of its Poké Ball, Farfetch'd sparred with Riolu as it came to see it as a good training partner.[1]

Both Ash's and Goh's Farfetch'd believing the opposite stole their food.

Farfetch'd was later seen eating breakfast with the group. However, a wild Sobble is secretly stealing food, Farfetch'd believed that Goh's Farfetch'd stole the food. When Sobble revealed itself, it became timid and cried excessively, making everyone, including both Farfetch'd, crying. It went on a search party for the Sobble and found it hiding in the water fountain where Goh unintentionally captured it.[2]

Afterwards, it was brought home to Cerise Laboratory. Later, it was seen crying with many of Ash and Goh's Pokémon after it was exposed to Sobble's tears again.[3]

Farfetch'd was brought out for training practice to train against Riolu but was quickly taken out by Riolu's Reversal.[4]
