Fresh details for the new dual Steel/Ghost-type Sword Pokémon Honedge have surfaced, including its description, moves, and official art.
Following yesterday’s news of a new sword-like Pokémon called “Monorpale” (Hitotsuki in Japanese), revealed during the Japan Expo, we now know the following:
It is now known that Honedge comes into being when a departed spirit possesses a sword that once belonged to humans. It can use the blue cloth attached to its hilt as nimbly as an arm. Pokémon Trainers who carelessly take this blade in hand may find the blue cloth wrapping itself around them and draining their energy!
This Pokémon can learn the attack Swords Dance, a Normal-type move. Swords Dance is a frenetic dance that uplifts the fighting spirit and sharply raises the user’s Attack stat. The effect can be increased by using this move multiple times in succession, helping Trainers who deploy this move at the beginning of a battle to overwhelm one opponent after another.
