Shoko Nakagawa Finds Pokémon's Sirfetch'd Quite Fetching

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Voice actress and singer Shoko Nakagawa is a huge Pokémon enthusiast. She's guest starred in 12 consecutive Pokémon anime films, is the host of Pokémon Sunday variety program, and drew her own tribute manga about the first generation game. It's no surprise that she was especially enthused about the reveal of Sirfetch'd, the new evolution of Farfetch'd in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games.

Nakagawa shared her fan art of Sirfetch'd on Wednesday.

The internet has shared its interpretations (both humorous and gorgeous) of Sirfetch'd across social media.

Some of the fan art specifically points out the similarities between Sirfetch'd and other anime characters.

Pokémon designs are drawn from a wide range of influences, from zoology to classic literature. Another example of a Pokémon which resembles European knights is Serperior, which Ken Sugimori stated was inspired by Oscar from Riyoko Ikeda's The Rose of Versailles. When it comes to Sirfetch'd, Nintendo has alluded that he might be inspired by 13th and 14th century paintings.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will ship worldwide for the Switch on November 15.
