865 Sirfetch'd Sirfetch'd's body becomes surrounded in a yellow aura. It then thrusts its leek forward, causing a ball of energy to travel down the leek until it reaches its tip. The ball of energy then bursts into an aura of yellow energy that surrounds Sirfetch'd and its leek. Sirfetch'd then charges forward and stabs the opponent with its leek at full force. After using the move, Sirfetch'd can't move for a while.
