New Pokemon Monorpale/Hitotsuki/Honedge!
Surprised there isn't a thread about this yet.

There's been a new Pokemon Revealed this morning at the Japan Expo. It's known in France as Monorpale and Japan as Hitotsuki and is a Steel/Ghost type. And it's a Pokemon based off a sword.

It has a sheath and during battle it unsheathes itself.

It is not that bad. But I don't like it. Maybe because I don't like its type. I find it ugly. :\

Treecko July 4th, 2013 1:49 AM

Yeah I think it's weird but cool at the same time. It's weird that It's just... a sword.But keep in mind there's been countless Pokemon based on inanimate objects. Magnets, ice cream, rocks, chandeliers , gears, eggs, sludge, bells, weird disc bell things (Bronzor), etc. So I expected Game Freak to make at least one Pokemon like this. XD

It could end up evolving into some really cool, like a possessed knight or something. I like it's typing, Steel/Ghost is something different so that's always welcomed by me.

Squidchan July 4th, 2013 2:04 AM

I like the way it looks, but it probably won't end up being a favourite unless it's evolution is something really impressive.

Sabrewulf238 July 4th, 2013 2:05 AM

I like it, I think it's because of the tassle it has attached to it's hilt. Maybe it's more like some kind of ceremonial sword?

It makes me think of Bronzor/Bronzong.

shubham2207 July 4th, 2013 2:07 AM

Better than bronzor atleast... And its type, awesome..! Just give that sword thingy LEVITATE !

skyluigi2 July 4th, 2013 2:08 AM

I actually like it. One of my fave Gen VI Pokemon, of the ones that have been shown so far. Then again, I can see this being the next Trubbish or Vanillite, because for some reason, people don't like Pokemon based on 'items'.

WishCookie July 4th, 2013 2:12 AM

What the...I'm not sure if I really like the design yet.

Wobbu July 4th, 2013 2:18 AM

I'd bet that it will have a good attack stat (assuming it can learn Swords Dance)

Poke Fox July 4th, 2013 2:29 AM

It may take me a while before I do like it or not. So far I only like it because its new, and just seeing it for the first time.

I can already see all the fanart of pokemon using the move swords dance and actually end up dancing with Monorpale instead.

On another note, this might seem strange but when I saw the blue picture first, I thought it looked like something from Avatar: The last airbender. (or Xiaolin Showdown)

metalhand July 4th, 2013 3:01 AM

it would be cool if it can become a pokemon weapon in battle

TheCrimson102 July 4th, 2013 3:14 AM

Two things,
1. It's bugging me that you can't see the sword through the sheath.
2. This is one pokemon i'll have on my team, because not only is it a giant sword, it is also able to levitate. And it's a sword.

Spinosaurus July 4th, 2013 3:40 AM

Holy crap I love it. A possessed floating sword? Awwww yeah.

Reminds me of Donkey Kong Country 2's Kleever, only less cooler because it doesn't have a skull and FIRE.

JayTheKing July 4th, 2013 3:44 AM

I dont really like it now but i will love it if its evolution is like this:

classiccartoonsftw July 4th, 2013 4:09 AM

I may consider this Pokemon for my team if Gengar isn't in the Kalos Pokedex.

SnowpointQuincy July 4th, 2013 4:11 AM

Reminds me of Windwaker with its color pallet. A LOT.

I LOVE its Type - Steel / Ghost.

IT DOES unsheathe - So Cool.

Bronsor + Monorpale = Awesome Double Battle - Ghostly Sword and Shield.

I'm Officially calling it --- THIS IS THE FULLY EVOLVED VERSION. (speculation.)

But Bronzor is a mirror not a shield!

I don't know. Look at the french and japanese name.

"Hitotsu" and "mono". I'd imagine it'll be this gen's Magnemite Pokemon. As in when it evolves (and I'm gonna bet it's gonna have "futatsu" and "duo" in its japanese and french name respectively) it's gonna be TWO swords!

SnowpointQuincy July 4th, 2013 4:55 AM

I'm Guessing it will not have Levitate, by the same logic of Magneton.

It's Ability will be Defiant - If you try to lower its stats, IT JUST GETS SHARPER!

Also assuming is a Psychical Sweeper.

Mithel_Celestia July 4th, 2013 5:16 AM

It certainly is more interesting than any other pokemon based on inanimate objects caused its an object commonly seen in alot of Fantasy and RPG games(which Pokemon is). Animate swords aren't quite Farfetch'd as countless games featured swords that apparantly have their own souls...hmmm, now why does that seem familiar...

Yes, The Soul series can be seen as one of the games with swords that have their own life(Soulcalibur itself and it's opposite Soul Edge, for those who don't know the series.)

PlatinumDude July 4th, 2013 6:18 AM

I never thought the day that a Ghost/Steel Pokemon to be introduced would actually happen. I was expecting a possessed suit of armor, but a possessed sword looks just as cool, IMO.

Hikamaru July 4th, 2013 6:27 AM

This Pokemon looks really interesting I have to say, and that type combo it has gives it quite a few resistances and 3 immunities as well. Gotta love that!

I could definitely see it being this generation's answer to Trubbish or Vanillite, a Pokemon based on an inanimate object. Hoping for the English name to be leaked soon.

flight July 4th, 2013 6:32 AM

Holy **** it's a freaking SWORD.

my hopes for this generation skyrocketed significantly just now. xD; If they keep going in this direction, then the design of 6th gen's Pokemon would be amazing. @_@

Bellum July 4th, 2013 6:34 AM

Interesting design...bit on the unoriginal side but hey...I don't judge pokemon by looks
