Pokémon X And Pokémon Y’s New Ghost Pokémon Is A Sword


Yesterday, The Pokémon Company revealed a brand new Pokémon at the Japan Expo in France. Now, we have further information, along with the first screenshots.


Honedge is a Ghost/Steel-type Pokémon, and it 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 like an arm, and has the ability to drain energy from people using it.


Unsurprisingly, Honedge can learn Swords Dance to power itself up by raising its Attack stat.




Honedge will make its debut in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, which are slated for worldwide release on October 12th.
