Farfetch'd (Japanese: カモネギ Kamonegi) is a Normal/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.


Farfetch'd is a Duck Pokémon. It is mostly brown, with a large beak and hand-like wings. It is also holding a stick, which is actually a leek (A kind of onion), which it uses in battle. It also has duck-like feet and a check mark on the top of its head.

Special abilities

Farfetch'd can have the ability Keen Eye or the ability Inner Focus. Keen Eye prevents the accuracy of Farfetch'd from decreasing. Inner Focus prevents Farfetch'd from flinching. It can't live without the stalk it holds. That's why it defends its stalk from attackers with its life.


Farfetch'd does not evolve. It is the first Pokémon in the Pokedex that does not evolve into or evolve from anything.

In the anime

In the anime a girl who is deeply in love with Brock has a Farfetch'd and they show it while she is in a tag battle with Brock.

Pokédex entries



Farfetch'd appears to be based on a duck that carries a leek around.

Name Origin

Its name seems to be a word corruption of the words Far and fetched. The Japanese name, Kamonegi, comes from a Japanese tale about a duck carrying a leek that offers itself to starving travelers. The shortened term is used to describe an unbelievable (i.e.: Far-fetched) stroke of luck: Not only have you got dinner, it comes with its own seasoning.
