Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Rock Smash Fighting
  • Fury Cutter Bug
  • Brick Break Fighting
  • Brave Bird Flying
  • Leaf Blade Grass

Rock Smash is good while Brick Break is a 3-bar charged move that will hit often. Decent Fighting type STAB attacks.

Fury Cutter generates energy quickly but doesn’t do appreciable damage.

Leaf Blade is the cheapest charged move of Galarian Farfetch’d and hits pretty hard

Brave Bird is a powerful charged move and hits really hard despite lacking STAB.
