Although Farfetch'd isn't the most powerful Pokémon, it does stand out in some ways.
- It's able to learn both cut and fly, making good for traveling (Ironically, though, it's shown swimming in the Pokémon TV show, but cannot learn any swimming-based HMs in the games.).
- It's the only Pokémon to have the item "Stick" in the wild, which increases the critical hit ratio.
- Farfetch'd does not evolve, so no need to use those Everstones.
- Farfetch'd can have one of two abilities: Inner Focus (prevents flinching) or Keen Eye (prevents accuracy loss, also helps keeps away lower level Pokémon).
- Farfetch'd is the only Pokémon with an apostrophe in its English name.
- Nicknames of the Farfetch'd that the player can trade for are DUX (Red/Blue) and CH'DING (LeafGreen/FireRed, CH'DING is holding a stick).
- Farfetch'd's concept is based on a popular Japanese meal involving duck with leek. How's that for disturbing?
