Early Pokemon Artwork Shows Off Missing Farfetched Evolution

Farfetch'd isn't a strange addition to the pocket monsters' roster because of its appearance, there are plenty of other avian Pokemon that it fits right in with. No, rather the duck-like monster is bizarre because it always carries around with it a leek stalk/spring onion that it often uses during combat to swipe at an opponent and is rarely, if ever, seen not holding one whether Farfetch'd is in combat or is simply wandering around town. Recently, a Pokemon fan has managed to discover an evolution of Farfetch'd that would give it a much more powerful appearance as well as a much different "vegetable".

Twitter User, and Pokemon enthusiast, DrLavaYT shared the evolutionary form of Farfetch'd dubbed "Madame" that unfortunately fell to the wayside, but shows a bigger version of the character whose biological appearance makes it seem like it is wearing a mask:

Farfetch'd, much like so many of its Pokemon brothers and sisters, has appeared in numerous video games from the beloved franchise, but made its first appearance in the anime with the episode "So Near, Yet So Farfetch'd". In the episode, which took place early on in the long running series, Farfetch'd was used by an insidious trainer in order to steal Pokemon from others and add them to his collection. Humorously, the Farfetch'd used its ridiculous leek in order to beat down any pocket monsters that got in its way or were deemed suitable to steal.

What do you think of this evolutionary form of Farfetch'd in "Madame"? Do you think it might make an appearance at some point in the future of the franchise? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and Pokemon!

If you haven't kept up with the current run of the anime, Pokemon the Series: Sun and Moon is described as such, "What starts as a summer vacation in the tropical Alola region turns into the next exciting chapter in Ash Ketchum's quest to become a Pokémon Master! There's plenty for Ash and Pikachu to explore in this sunny new region, with exciting new Pokémon to discover and interesting people to learn from along the way—including the cool Professor Kukui and the fun-loving Samson Oak.

More new faces will help guide Ash's Alolan adventure, in the form of a group of skilled Trainers—Kiawe, Lana, Mallow, and Sophocles—and a mysterious research assistant called Lillie. Frequent foes Team Rocket have also made the trip to Alola, looking to swipe some high-powered new Pokémon. But they have some heavy competition on the villainy front: the ruffians of Team Skull, who delight in causing chaos and may have more sinister intentions..."
