I wanted to find a Farfetch'd in white, so I seach up Farfetch'd and found you can find Farfetch'd on route 1 but in a swarm. What does that mean? Please help me out! Thank you!

>Pokemon Mass outbreak (Swarm) Mass Outbreaks, are a feature introduced in Generation II that allows the player to catch Pokémon that are usually rare or otherwise unobtainable.The gates in Unova have a monitor inside that will alert the player where an outbreak is taking place.Unlike previous games, the Pokémon outbreaks can be manipulated by soft resetting the game: turning the console off without saving the game beforehand, but only if the player has not saved their game at all that day. When the game is restarted, there will be a different Pokémon swarming. In Pokemon Black/white all have the level range of 15-55.

A swarm is the term used to mean Pokemon appearing in a place they would normally,for one day. It changes daily, so every day you can find a different Pokemon in a different place. So that means Farfecthed'D is in one. You can tell where a swarm is by looking at the electronic bullet boards in gateways.

They are also know as Pokemon out breaks.
