How to Evolve Every Pokemon

How to Evolve Galarian Farfetch'd into Sirfetch'd

Get 3 Critical Hits in one battle

How to Evolve Galarian Farfetch
Galarian Farfetch'd has an exclusive method for evolution. Unlike other Pokemon, Galarian Farfetch'd evolves by landing 3 critical hits in a single battle.

Tips to Evolve Galarian Farfetch'd

How to Evolve Galarian Farfetch
The chances of getting 3 critical hits in one battle are usually extremely rare. However, there are a few techniques players can use to increase their odds dramatically.

Catch a Galarian Farfetch'd with Leek

How to Evolve Galarian Farfetch
There are chances of a Galarian Farfetch'd in the wild holding a Leek as its held item. Leek gives Galarian Farfetch'd a two-stage boost in its critical-hit ratio. With a two-stage boost, Galarian Farfetch'd is able to pull off critical hits 50% of the time. With a Galarian Farfetch'd holding a Leek, players can achieve the evolution conditions for Galarian Farfetch'd in an average of only six attacks.

If you don't manage to catch a Galarian Farfetch'd with a Leek on your first try, consider using the move Thief to steal the Leek from a wild Galarian Farfetch'd without needing to catch it.
Pokemon Who Can Learn Thief

Use Focus Energy

The Focus Energy TR can be found in Motostoke near the entrance to the city. This move will provide a two-stage critical-hit ratio boost, so teaching it to Galarian Farfetch'd is another useful way to quickly evolve it.

List of TRs

Use Dire Hit

Dire Hit is an item which will boost a Pokemon's critical hit ratio in battle by two stages. Just using this item once will provide Galarian Farfetch'd with the same critical hit boost as the Leek or Focus Energy.

Use Leaf Blade

Galarian Farfetch'd is able to learn the move Leaf Blade by level up or by TM. This move has a one-stage increased critical-hit ratio, allowing Galarian Farfetch'd to land critical hits more easily (but not to the same degree as the other methods).

Stack the techniques above

These effects can also be stacked to further increase its odds. For example, a Galarian Farfetch'd with Leek and Focus Energy will have a four-stage boost, equivalent to a 100% critical-hit ratio. Note that the effects of Focus Energy and Dire Hit do not stack with each other.
