[Overview]

There's really nothing that Farfetch'd can do that others can't do better. Its best aspect is its access to Baton Pass, but there are a lot of other Pokemon in NU that can Baton Pass Swords Dance and/or Agility and do it better thanks to their typing and stats. The only thing Farfetch'd has over similar choices like Beedrill, Mawile, and Ledian is both Swords Dance and Wish.

[SET]
name: Swords Dance + Baton Pass
move 1: Swords Dance
move 2: Baton Pass
move 3: Substitute
move 4: Wish / Slash
item: Leftovers / Stick
ability: Inner Focus
nature: Jolly
evs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]
- Farfetch'd should only see use on BP chains that need healing from Wish along with the SD boosts
- Sub protects the chain from status
- Slash can be used for STAB and makes use of the SD boosts and the increased crit chance from Stick, but the only major selling point Farfetch'd has over its competition is Wish

[ADDITIONAL SET COMMENTS]
- Agility can be placed over Swords Dance if necessary for the chain
- Yawn can be extremely devastating if the chain has trapped a vulnerable target, but Spinda has the instant sleep in Hypnosis over it albeit at an accuracy cost
- Typical BP chain members needed, Mawile, Ariados, Huntail, Plusle

[Other Options]
- Flail, ultimately done better by Vigoroth and Kingler
- Curse cannot be BPed unfortunately
- Feather Dance
- Knock Off, Thief

[Checks and Counters]
- Roar Wailord, Flareon, Tropius, Piloswine
- Perish Song Dewgong
- Relicanth
- Outside BP anything with a Defense stat can take it on
