Farfetch'd isn't good, plain and simple. It can't hurt anything unless you get really lucky.

Name Item Ability Nature

Knock Off

Stick Inner Focus Adamant
Moveset EVs
~ Swords Dance
~ Slash
~ Agility
~ Knock Off
4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

Uh oh, it's Farfetch'd! Actually to be honest, "Uh oh" is what you say when you bring out Farfetch'd because it's a terrible Pokémon. Swords Dance + Slash + critical hit will hurt a lot of stuff, but I doubt you will even get that far because everything and anything kills Farfetch'd easily. Knock Off is to hit Skarmory or Gengar or such on the switch.

Name Item Ability Nature

Baton Pass

Leftovers Inner Focus Adamant
Moveset EVs
~ Attract
~ Swords Dance
~ Agility
~ Baton Pass
252 Atk / 60 Def / 198 Spe

You are going to have to rely heavily on luck for this, as this is the only way Farfetch'd will actually complete a Baton Pass without dying or being pseudo-hazed out. I don't recommend this set.

Name Item Ability Nature

Swords Dance + Flail

Salac Berry Inner Focus Adamant
Moveset EVs
~ Substitute / Endure
~ Flail
~ Hidden Power Ghost
~ Swords Dance
252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe

He can't even reach 396 Speed with Salac Berry. Stick to Dodrio for this set.

Other Options

It can Wish + Protect if you are into pseudo passing healing, and Yawn... however on the flipside, it can do neither effectively. Aerial Ace or Hidden Power Flying works if you want a Flying move to take advantage off STAB of... uh.. Farfetch'd's horrible Attack.


You'll want max Attack and Speed for most sets, Baton Passing one with Agility only needs 198 Speed and lots of defenses.

Checks and Counters

Aside from everything, Skarmory gets special note.
