Pokemon X and Y Doublade evolution into Aegislash excites

By Alan Ng - Oct 6, 2013

With just days to go now until the mighty arrival of arguably the biggest Nintendo 3DS game of the year hits with Pokemon X and Y, we have some more juicy news to share with you. After the reveal of the Pokemon X and Y final starter evolutions with Chesnaught, Delphox and Greninja, it looks like the next big evolution has been revealed – the final evolution of Honedge.

Firstly, if you haven’t seen the Kalos starter evolutions yet, don’t forget to check that out again here as it is now common knowledge that was basically impossible to keep a secret before the game is out. With most of you now likely to have made a decision on which starter to choose after seeing the evolutions, we switch our attention to one of the most exciting new Pokemon to debut in X and Y.

Honedge is a ghost/steel type of Pokemon and has one of the coolest designs seen in the game. If you don’t want to see the stats of Honedge’s final evolution, we recommend you look away now and read elsewhere. Otherwise, we can confirm that Honedge second evolution from Doublade will transform into a new creature known as Aegislash.

We can confirm that the type of Aegislash will remain steel and ghost after evolving, but has the special ability to change form depending on how the current battle is progressing. Aegislash is going to be entry #119 on the Pokedex and we also have a confirmation of moves for you.

Thanks to Twitter, we can bring you a look at Aegislash moves here. The moves will include abilities such as Autotomize, Swords Dance, Iron Head and perhaps the most intriguing of all – Sacred Sword which is a Fighting type move.

Doublade will evolve into Aegislash.. are you ready?

For those interested, you can see a full picture of Aegislash here, take a look at how it compares with the image of Doublade that we have included here since it has already been made official by Nintendo and Game Freak.

What is your reaction to the evolution – do you like it or not? We have a feeling that Aegislash is going to be one of the most powerful Pokemon in X and Y once trainers obtain it. Stay tuned for more juicy Pokemon X and Y news as we get it.

    I think there’s a mistake here… That’s just honedge using swords dance.

    Anyone notice the “blade form” at the top? Does that mean it has a shield form? Like DEOXYS attack and defense forms?

      I searched it up. Apparently, he DOES have a Shield Form.
      Can’t show you dah pic. This is a comment, not a post.


    It looks like it’s fake to me, because why would they downgrade from 2 swords to 1? and why go back to the original color? the name sounds real, but the design seems more like a honedge evolution, not a doublade evolution. When I saw the name, I pictured 2 crossed swords with a huge sword between them (and for some reason I imagined green wraps)

      its very real my friend, if you followed kampachi progress through the game you would know, there are already 69 new pokemons and 18 mega evolutions found and most likely a little more will be found

      • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

        Where can we find this kampachi thing?

      It’s not fake. So many people are in denial.
