It would sense that they would reveal such a Pokemon in Paris, because Europe is enriched with its medieval history, but wouldn't it make more sense if it was Fairy/Steel, since according to fairytales, enchanted swords were forged by Fairy magic. If this sword has levitate as an ability, then it's definitely going to be a permanent resident of the OU metagame.

I like the design and the typing and i'm hoping that it will evolve into a possessed suit of armor. Based on typing alone this thing would fit nicely on a rain team since its only weakness would be halved.

I want to see more of it, but right now all I can think of is "IT'S A HEARTLESS! KILL IT!" I'm expecting it to be more of a pokemon along the lines of Chandelure as opposed to Vanillite/Trubbish. I expect that it will evolve in some form or fashion for the same reasons stated above.

Wow, I actually think this one looks cool! Though I'd never thought we'd see Pokémon modeled after weapons :p I wonder if there's gonna be any use of a trainer wielding it like an actual shield or something along those lines...

It feels weird to me because a sword is supposed to move when it's in use. So when it attacks, will it making a slashing movement? Because the whole body of Monorpale moving in such an unconventional fashion is just very jarring. And it would also be weird if Monorpale just levitated during its attacks, a sword is a dynamic object so we would expect it to move. Kind of a dilemma in how to animate it I think.

Also, those of you predicting a ghost suit of armour evolution are on the right track. I think the name is a portmanteu of mono- (for one) and vorpal (a name for a sword that has really placed itself into fantasy). So perhaps its next evolution would involve more than one "unit".

It doesn't look so bad. I kind of like it.
When I first saw it, I didn't even know what to think about it. But I warmed up to it really quickly. And its typing is great!
I might have one in my team.

In Pokemon Adventures Manga, Charmeleon cuts Koga's Arbok in Half with his tail. Just imagine the damage a sword pokemon would do!

I should really start checking out the pokemon manga soon.

It sounds like Monorpale will be a menace in the manga.

At first, I was like "...What?" Then I started to think about it, and when I saw the picture of the sword unsheathed, I was like "This is the best Pokemon of this Gen. Hands down." Steel/Ghost is a pretty awesome type as well.

I'm weird so I like things like this. I think it looks pretty BA, even if it just a sword. The typing rocks by the way. If it has levitate it will only have one weakness which is always a plus(and it's not x4 weakness!)

Does it have an English name yet? Steel/Ghost is an interesting combo. Wonder what moves it'll have?

Here's some footage from Junichi Masuda's message:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=tUYEfV4Q6xg
The part with the sword Pokemon starts at ~3:50.
Also, he mentions the idea behind this Pokemon's design but my French is unfortunately not that good so I can't understand everything. What I understood was that this sword Pokemon contains an ancient soul.
Does anyone have an idea what that move it uses could be?

i'm surprised that so many people like this pokemon. i'm sitting here thinking: "what the actual ****". I just absolutely hate the design. i thought vanillish and garbodor were bad, but this is just completely retarded. And YES i am TRYING to like it but i just can't.

As for it's typing, it's kinda cool. but the design just ruined it.

Oh God!It reminded me of Yu gi oh 5Ds!
This monster used a move like that:

I like it more now!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6TRC9U7dvw

The move can be named Blossom Slash!

At this point, the only way it can be more awesome is two become 2 swords.

I want to see fan art of Golurk with a giant Bronzor in one hand and Monorpale in the other with Metagross on his chest as some sort of armor.

Yeah I don't like this one. I know 'it doesn't look like a pokémon' is a pathetic reason, but seriously it's a sword. It doesn't even look living unlike the Vanillite line.

As long as it doesn't get any evos and isn't particularly strong I guess I can just forget about it.
