Aegislash is an Steel/Ghost-type Pokémon that was first introduced in Generation VI.



Aegislash is a single sword, unlike its pre-evolution, that is slightly golden in color and has a strange jagged blade edge, it has a single purple eye with a white pupil and no sheath but instead a rather large shield with circle patterns on it being held by its "arms", which are purple cloth.


Special Abilities

It can learn the move Swords Dance and Sacred Sword, like Doublade and Honedge. Its signature abilitiy is Stance Change.


Aegislash is the evolved form of Doublade and the final form of Honedge. It can be evolved from Doublade by using a Dusk Stone.

Aegislash's name is most likely derived from the words "aegis" which means shield and "slash".
