Sword The stalk this Pokémon carries in its wings serves as a sword to cut down opponents. In a dire situation, the stalk can also serve as food.
Shield They use a plant stalk as a weapon, but not all of them use it in the same way. Several distinct styles of stalk fighting have been observed.

Galarian Farfetch'd

Sword The Farfetch’d of the Galar region are brave warriors, and they wield thick, tough leeks in battle.
Shield The stalks of leeks are thicker and longer in the Galar region. Farfetch’d that adapted to these stalks took on a unique form.
