I'll admit it looks strange...I actually like it better when it's sheathed as it reminds me of Bronzong.
Also the eye on it seems familiar...

I think it's friggin' awesome! Another audacious Pokemon for Gen VI! Man I'm so psyched for this Gen with every new Pokemon reveal! I'm gonna have to have it in my team, simply because I have a habit of permanently boxing every steel-type I catch until postgame. But this is a ghost-type too...and man-o-man it's a sword Pokemon! Another Poke-dream has come true~

I definitely agree that it looks like something out of Windwaker. But hey, Pokemon has been incorporating designs from various Nintendo franchises since Gen 1, and I really love the nods to those things. Look at all the Kirby-esque Pokemon we have already!

This is a very cute Pokémon! It doesn't seem fully-evolved to me, but I think when it evolves it has a chance to become even more awesome! I really love its sheath, I hope that design gets utilized more if/when it evolves.

I have mixed feelings about his design tbh.
On one hand, it looks very...simple? But on the other, a Ghost Sword is awesome!! :D
I really love his typing already, Ghost/Steel, it's going to do pretty good defence-wise

Those who are saying "it's just a sword" need to realize that Ghost Pokemon are capable of possessing inanimate objects, and the fact that Ghost Pokemon in general aren't natural-looking/organic like animals and plants.

Funny you should say that, because I already saw one at 4chan, except it had a Escaliver's helmet for Golurk rather than Metagross being on his chest.

At first I hated it immensely ... until I saw the footage and it unsheathing, then I'm like "Cool!".

If it has Levitate then it'll have 4 immunities (Ground, Fighting, Normal, and Poison) which, if it has good stats, would make it overpowered; if it has an awesome evolution, it'll be OU. So idk, how they're planning to manage Levitate and balancing it out. Nevertheless, Ghost/Steel is awesome typing!

Now if they create these types:

Ghost/Normal (Only weakness is Dark, immune to Ghost, Fighting and Normal).
Dark/Psychic (Only weakness is Bug X4, immune to Psychic).
Ghost/Rock (Weak to Ghost, Dark, Water, Grass, Steel and Ground [unless with Levitate], immune to Fighting and Normal).
Fighting/Flying (Weak to Ice, Electric, Psychic, and Flying, immune to Ground).

I'd assume it'll be learning Fury cutter, Sacred Sword, Swords Dance, Night Slash, Slash, X-Scissor (if its evolution is two swords), Sharpen, etc.

Monorpale is a STEEL type pokemon. A sword was inevitable. I love the sword.

Most steel-types are slow, so be prepared for that let down. However, considering its small size it might be more like Exedrill.

Most likely, this will the the exedrill of this Gen. A powerful OU steel type.

This is probably the first time I'm more excited about a Ghost type than my brother is. This sword is freakin awesome. If it has Levitate then I hope it doesn't evolve. Its going to be a pretty hardcore powerhouse on its own already. To me it doesn't look as if it'll evolve either. Sorta like Zangoose and other one stagers.

I'm hopin it has some insane attack stat similar to Slaking just maybe not as high and pushes close to 560 BST. So much potential ♥w♥

Sacred Sword is a legendary exclusive so I don't see it getting it.

Bare in mind it is a Ghost type.

I like the Sword with its sheathed form. I can't tell about the unsheathed as I haven't got a close picture yet. I am sure we will get Official Art soon since Coro Coro is just around the corner or at least they leaks are. As for the concept of the Poke I like it, I am not really one to complain especially when it is an inanimate object they are just bond to happen in every generation.

Honedge
Honedge comes into being when a departed spirit inhabits a sword that once belonged to humans. It can use the blue cloth attached to its hilt as nimbly as an arm. If you were to carelessly take this blade in hand, you may find that blue cloth wrapping around you...draining the energy from your body!

Thats the description and the name.Well not something special as a name dont you agree?And the descrition reminds me of chandelure.And it can learn Sword Dance indeed!

I get where the "edge" in "Honedge" comes from but what about the "Hon" part? Maybe "hone?" And a sword that actually gets Swords Dance? That's "Swords Dance" in the literal sense, huh?

Edit: @Saberwulf: Yes, it's called "Honedge" in the official X/Y site too.

Yeah I was thinking Hone-edge too.

I don't think the name is that complex. Although it could come from Honor/Honour/Honourable too.

Yup it's been confirmed , it's English name is Honedge. I'm think it's name is hone+edge. Hone being to sharpen something with a whitestone, usually metal and usually a blade like a sword. And edge meaing the edge of the sword. I like it. It sounds pretty cool.
And here's some high-res art.

Spoiler:


And it knows Swords Dance...


A sword Pokemon using Swords Dance is hilarious. XD

Well the video on Pokemon's youtube channel showed us at least how it looks like without the ''case'' on.

Woooow, so creepy! I love it even more! That's another thing I love about Ghost-types....you can bet they'll have some creepy lore behind them!

Isn't that so interesting though? That in the Pokemon World, humans can become Pokemon after they die!

Its 6 AM for you but it may be 8 AM for them. Most big businesses open around 6 or 7 in the morning for prep work. I don't remember where the office is but, ya, timezones.


Love Honedge already. Praying its a single stage just cause I don't think we have many left and its type and possible ability match-up make it a beast on their own. I really can't recall any single stage ghosts other than Spiritomb and Sableye. Hopin Honedge is like the new Spiritomb.

With the possibility of it having Levitate its pulling a Bronzor/zong and having only one weakness. I wouldn't be surprised if they gave it some other ability to either rid the weaknesses or capitalize on its attack stat. x_x. So much potential.

Not to rain on your parade but...I kind of disagree. Not that I'm asking for a huge three-stage evolution thing like Gengar (perhaps two would do), but I feel like there's really a lot of potential that could be had in this Pokemon, and having an extra evolution or two definitely wouldn't hurt.

Yes, I do agree that there aren't that many ghosts that have single stage evolutions, but honestly? I'd prefer it that way. I feel that the ghosts that /do/ have single stage evolutions have faded into obscurity (with the exception of Rotom because of it's various forms, and Sableye because of it's incredible usefulness in competitive play), and with a concept such an amazing as this, I wouldn't want it to just be faded into the darkness to be forgotten about, really. ._.; That's just me, though.
