    Doubledge is better I think…
    And that will make Triedge as Its 3rd evolution…

    • VietKnight

      That is if the blade are together it would be doubledge like on each side but it is not so highly likely

    • Suicunesol

      Double Edge is the name of a move…

  • D. Collins

    like magneton and magnimite

  • Chris Yuen

    Roronoa Zoro incoming if there’s a third evolution.

    • Surgeon of Death

      BADASS personified?

      • zaidandzhadow

        How about no jokes fo you

  • ArtIristic

    Still more creative than Magnemites evolutions. It does look pretty cool.

    • Steams

      Magnemites evolutions, or rather Magneton, actually makes sense, since you know, they’re magnets. I don’t know why two swords would come together, but I approve, especially seeing how they manage to keep the Celtic trinity knot.

      • Lynx

        -I don’t know why two swords would come together, but I approve,
        especially seeing how they manage to keep the Celtic trinity knot.

        Coat of arms, perhaps?

        • Steams

          If that happens. its got a spot on my team!

  • Rasputing

    It reminds a bit of a crest. Having a Pokemon that seems to be two ‘independent’ creatures (and not three glued at the hip wink wink hint hint) and seems to be able to move as such is pretty cool. Even if it is one brain controlling both, two ‘bodies’ is still a pretty cool concept.

    And dat attack in the second screen.

    • Kai2591

      sorry I don’t get the hint…

  • AlteisenX

    …They really put zero effort into this one.

    • shafiq95

      I was really hoping for the evolution to look like a transparent ghost wielding soul calibur like pokemon,hope there’s a 3rd evolution

    • MasterScrub

      You speak as though they’ve never done this before when they do it all the time.

  • artemisthemp

    Guess they evolve into 3 Sword, that evolve into 4 Swords and so on and so on.

    • zaidandzhadow

      No, really, those 3 swords are gonna evolve into 3 mega swords

  • Go2hell66

    Megaevolution is a chainsaw

  • ElAbuelo69

    inb4 nostalgiaf..s!!!

    Just remember…Diglett and Dugtrio…Magnemite and Magneton.

  • CirnoLakes

    It’s the new Doduo/Magnemite.

  • DriftSlave

    despite the haters, I think it looks rather cool.

    I’m wondering why they gave it “No Guard” though….maybe it has a low accuracy signature move….

    • MikeTxn

      Or “Guillotine”.

      • DriftSlave

        1 hit KO moves dont work with no guard. Machamp with Fissure would have been godly if true.

        • MagneticSpark

          “OHKO moves are exempted from this behavior; they will always miss. This was a bug, and was fixed in Platinum.”

          so it would work. there’s even a glitch in gen 4 to teach machamp sheer cold. it’s godlike in the battle tower with a choice scarf

          • DriftSlave

            It means that OHKO moves still wont work with No Guard, period

            There are many sources backing this up.

          • MagneticSpark

            no guard does work with ohko moves after platinum, even bulbapedia says so. No guard choice scarfed deoxys-s spamming sheer cold is very common in the Hackmons tier.

          • DriftSlave

            I guess, there is still the huge flaw that no pokemon with No Guard has access to 1 hit KO moves.

            Combine that with 1 hit KO moves are banned in competitive play….it honestly doesn’t matter.

    • Notquitesure?

      I’m guessing steel type base 100, 80 accracy and high chance for critical hit

  • Deebo#Take What I Like

    Ehhh ok,,

  • Kaihedgie

    Well of course

  • TruSpindash

    This guy is definitely going to have a spot on my team.

  • BlitzWhat

    Where are the Kirito jokes?

  • Godman

    So they’re this Gen’s Klink?

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      u mean diglett

      • PreyMantis

        Or Magnemite

  • SlickRoach

    I like Honedge’s design so two of ’em are twice the awesome. I hope they make a shield counterpart.

    • MikeTxn

      Who could downvote this when it’s true?

      As stated by Lloyd Irving: “If one sword has a power of 100, then using two swords would make it 200”.

  • SonicRulez

    I can’t help but to find this lazy even if there’s been a precedence set for this since Gen I.

  • What the hell is with all the dislikes on each comment? Someone is havin’ a bad day.

  • FFmax

    Dem random downvotes.

    • SlickRoach

      I assume from angry genwunners possibly.

  • Just Tim

    No Guard seems iffy for a Pokemon of that typing.

    Give it Levitate, and as for the design itself, it could’ve been better.

    • True

      It only has only two weaknesses, immune to three, damaged normally by only four, and resists everything else. What’s wrong with the typing? Giving it levitate would be almost unfair seeing as how ground is one of the weaknesses.

  • JoJo_649

    I hope the third evolution is a cursed medieval armor.

    • I was actually hoping for a terracotta soldier for type variety.

      • Kai2591

        yeah since it looks like a Chinese sword.

    • Steven Higgins

      I was thinking of a Twin Blade, You know a sword with a blade on each end of the handle? It would be the logical next step. Bit instead of the handle, they’d be joined at the tassel for more fluid movement.

  • Third evolve form Triblade when a Doublade and a Honedge sword dance next to a meteorite off the coast of the Hoenn region triblade is formed lol

  • Sardorim

    So… Can it breed with itself?

    • Go2hell66

      but where does the egg come out :/

      • Steven Higgins

        SHHHH! We don’t speak of that! All Pokemon eggs magically appear out of nowhere, they don’t come out of anything.

      • neocatzon

        When 2 blades (4?) love each other, stork happen.

    • SlickRoach

      If you put two Doublades in the daycare together is that considered a foursome? Sorry, I had to…

  • Heisst


  • MikeTxn

    A sword evolving into a coat of arms, eh?
    A simple, yet good concept. I love this line.

    • Kai2591

      Mayhap there’ll be a country with Doublade as their coat of arms in the Pokemon world?

    • SlickRoach

      Just realized it was a coat of arms after reading your post. It just got even more awesome in my book.

  • Learii

    someone need to pick up those swords and use it as a weapon XD

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste


  • Raoni Marques

    Now this pokémon is gonna fuse with Gallade to create the ultimate badass

    • J_Joestar

      Gallade already has arm blades, so it would be a 4 sword style?

      • MikeTxn

        He could attach the blades to his back and emulate Kunzite battle style.

      • Raoni Marques

        Blades are never, never enough.

        • J_Joestar

          Unlimited Doublade Works?

          surprised that a parody pic of that isn’t around yet…

  • Miss_Madness

    The sad thing is that while it is dual swords it’s more of a coat of arms thing. Then it’s harder to make puns from coat of arms.

  • Miss_Madness

    Since these are ghost swords I can’t help but image the tassel grabbing on to their victims and then slicing them to pieces as they scream for mercy. Considering this is a ghost type there is a high chance that the dex entry will be as horrible as what I imagine.

    Or it could be the souls of dead warriors cursed to fight for all time in the swords they used to slew their enemies. c:

    • Now I’m curious about Doublade flavored-Creepypasta. Doesn’t the name sound bad though? It sounds more like Dull Blade to me.

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        I think it’s supposed to be dual blade.

      • I know but if you say it out loud it sounds like Dull Blade.

  • Uso Ewin

    One more sword and it’s Tri edge

  • Valtiel Ikari

    an here I was hoping it would evolve into something cooler, like a Dullahan :(

  • KuroNathan

    So… what if there was a third stage evolution where it’s 3 swords? I’m thinking Trimore (three claymores). So when you beat your opponent you could tell them to TriMore :V

  • Vash bane

    for some reason im thinking of pokemon fusion lol

    • Renaldi Saputra

      so they aren’t satisfied with the 2 versions of kyuurem in B/W 2.. so they extend it with this

  • This Pokemon will also feel right at home on Soul Calibur. Probably a twist on guest characters, it could be an very special unlockable weapon for Cervantes.

  • $36598391

    This does look cool but it also looks like they’re running out of ideas for different creatures, X and Y, there will be over 800 pokemon now

    • Suicunesol

      If they’re still coming out with Pokemon, then they haven’t run out of ideas. If they’re making a sword into a Pokemon, then it just means they’ve got more ideas.

    • miju

      It’s from Kalos region, which is based on Europe, so this thing is a coat of arms. I wouldn’t count this guy as them running out of ideas because that’s actually pretty cool.

  • AverageGamers

    I’m guessing there will be a 3rd form/evolution for this one. Kinda think this will be this gen’s Magneton/Klink
    The final evolution will be called Trisula! (Just saying XD)

  • Dakota

    My only complaint with this Pokemon is that I’d feel more at home equipping it as a sub-weapon for clearing bushes or close-range combat or something…

    • Shady Shariest

      *You accidentally cut… “Pikachu” …in half!*

    • Suicunesol

      Booted up HM!
      HM contains CUT.
      Teach CUT to a Pokemon?
      [Yes] – No
      Honedge learned CUT.

      • Dakota

        I feel like that’d be redundant…

  • GOLD

    this gens magnemite. not saying the design is a rip-off but honedge’s line seems to fill the same role as magnemite’s and klink’s. that said i think this is the last evo in the line. three swords seem overdone and and for it to suddenly turn into a suit of Armour would beodd imo.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    am I the only one who thought of the ice-cream pokemon when I saw this?

  • isotrex

    I want a sword and shield.
