A Farfetch'd Fencing Match! (Japanese: カモネギ剣士, いざ勝負! The Kamonegi Swordsman's Challenge!) is the eighth chapter of the Pokémon Gotta Catch 'Em All manga.


The chapter opens with Shu throwing a Poké Ball at a Farfetch'd sitting on a tree stump, however before the Ball makes contact it is split in two. A young man named Ryoma steps up and explains that the Farfetch'd belongs to him. Shu takes a moment to ask why exactly the Poké Ball was split and Ryoma explains that his Farfetch'd is a master swordsman who can cut anything. Shu is astounded and comments that he didn't even see it move, to which Ryoma replies that no foolish amateur with such a weak looking Pokémon could follow Farfetch'd's movements. Both Shu and Pikachu are offended and challenge Ryoma and Farfetch'd to a duel.

As the battle begins at Ryoma's dojo, Farfetch'd makes the first strike so fast that neither Shu or Pikachu see what just happened. In the blink of an eye, Pikachu is covered in doodles of a monocle, mustache, monobrow and a henohenomoheji and Shu's belt has been taken, leaving him with his pants down. Ryoma laughs at the situation as he declares that playtime is over as Farfetch'd goes on a serious offensive. As Pikachu is beaten about with Farfetch'd's leek, Shu gets an idea. After briefly regrouping the plan is put into action, as Farfetch'd strikes again Pikachu blocks with his tail. Shu says that this is what he calls the "Thunder Sword" as Pikachu defeats Farfetch'd with an electric attack. Ryoma humbly accepts defeat, and just as Shu prepares to start bragging, Ryoma offers back the belt he took earlier as Shu still doesn't have his pants on.
