Only Noctowl as of now, although Ash has gotten Pokemon that used Non-STAB moves which weren't Normal type or weren't coverage moves, but 2 coverage moves, no.
that happens from time to time (Boldore, Naganadel, Gengar) but Farfetch’d is is a pretty unique position in regards to move set.

i’ve always found move sets interesting in the anime, because unlike the games is not usually about type coverage but more about visual coverage. Hence why Riolu will have three fighting types moves- they all look and acts differently.

Which means it says nothing, since we also had that official magazine with Sobble alongside Ash's team.
That was clearly done to mislead the reader. They already used a line that Ash says to Galarian Farfetch'd and manipulated it in a trailer to make it look like he's saying it to Sobble.
 
This, too, shall pass...

Even if Ash doesn't get any of the Galar starters, he can always catch an old starter that he missed out on in the past.
This is true. It would be very strange for him to skip entirely on a generation starter but a lot of what's happened so far is strange.

You gotta be kidding me...They're REALLY giving Goh Sobble? Looks like Sobble won't get much action at all now since Goh just hates battling for whatever dumb reason. This is probably among the worst decisions in this series.

And I think that Grookey will get the same fate.

I don’t know why everyone is worried, everybody thought at first that Goh would have a regular team- and while Scyther and Beedrill have made numerous apperences, he hasn’t done that so far- so Sobble will finally be something towards that.

it’s not like Sobble is going to get as sparse screen time as Goh’s Paras or Tentacool- we’ll see plenty of it.
