I hope he's not the new Spiritomb mainly because Spiritomb was a pain in the ass to get a hold of during the 4th gen.

Personally I could see him evolving once, probably not twice though.

I thought it was a key item at first.

I'm guessing the new ghost Pokemon trend is departed ghosts entering inanimate objects.

I like it but it just doesn't feel...ghosty in its design. I feel like a spectral hand should be wielding it or something idk. Its like if Yamask/Spiritomb/Cofagrigus were only the objects they were possessing. I still love it, though. It looked great in-game.

I cant imagine what its ability will be. Maybe since its a sword it will get a quick draw ability giving it priority on all attacks on its first turn? Or maybe a boost in defense if it doesn't attack and sheathes itself? So many possibilties for a unique ability!

I meant in stat and usage. When Spiritomb was used he was all over.

Sometimes I am a little bemused with the fan reaction to things, haha. I'm glad so many people have taken to this Pokemon, but I honestly thought I would come to Pokecommunity and find pages upon pages of hatred for it. I don't know. I thought, in particular, the unsheathed version would draw the ire of all the new-generation haters... but I guess not? Then again, I have never been able to understand why people dislike the Vanillite or Trubbish family. Both are adorable! And we've had inanimate objects as Pokemon since Generation I, too, so you'd think people would be used to the concept by now...

I love Honedge! I'll echo what others said in that I want to use it on my team, the typing is unique to the Pokemon franchise and it looks like a marvelous Pokemon. I prefer the sheathed version. I wouldn't mind if it received further evolutions, but I do find it curious that so many people think it'll evolve. It looks like a one-stager to me. But either way, I'm happy with it.
If a Ghost/Steel-type Gym Leader faced you in a double battle, with this Pokemon and a shield-like Pokemon, that'd be neat, wouldn't it?

I don't really have a problem with the mon's concept, because frankly you have to suspend disbelief when it comes to pokémon concepts. I'm not a huge fan of the design though, especially the whole unsheathing thing. It just looks bizarre holding its sheath, and the sword itself looks a tad basic. But I guess the unsheathing at the start of the battle could look nice?

i have a feeling that this poke will be another good trick room ally, i think this cause most steel typ have fairly low base speed stats and also i think it may have pretty good def stat, as its other steel brethen and if this poke can evole it may make a good evolite user

I agree, especially with the sword looking too basic; I prefer it with its sheath on for that reason. The cinematic would add a nice dramatic touch to battles, but it do wish they would at least have thought of a better way to hold the sheath. It does look somewhat weird, like you said.

If anything, I hope the whole unsheathing thing applies only to battles. That way, when I'm looking at Honedge in my party or on Pokemon-amie, I get to see the version I find to be more aesthetically appealing.

SnowpointQuincy - Bronzor's name as it's appearance is derived from bronze mirror (bronze + mirror = Bronzor). As Bronzong is actually inspired by gong bell.
PlatinumDude - Why to create a new Ghost-type Pokémon whose possessed an armor when there's Golett and Golurk? Yeah, I know both the aforementioned Pokémon are based on Jewish religion about stone golems but unless you know it, they basicly look like armors that have been possessed.

Wasn't Monorpale changed so that the new Steel/Ghost-type Pokémon will be named Honedge? O_o

Monorpale is the French name. They just revealed the English name of it, Honedge.

I hope that Honedge get's an evolution as it, at least the sword part, looks quite basic, I hope it becoming more elegant in design.

YES. I have been waiting for a ghost/steel type. I hope it's bulky because its typing is excellent defensive. Really hope the stats are good for Honedge because its typing is wonderful! Good chance it will be on my ingame team. Probably my competitive team if the stats are good. (Or its evolution)

Well it looks... weird.
I don't think it will have Levitate & that's because Magnemite & its evolutions don't, but on the other hand I guess the reason they don't was to not make them immune to their weakness which is ground, so maybe he'll have Levitate, after all he's part ghost

Well I would sooner compare Honedge to the Bronzor family rather than the Magnemite family....and Bronzor/Bronzong can get levitate.

It's going to be a lot harder for them to justify Magnemite not having the ability levitate in this gen, when it'll be clear as day floating in air, bobbing about.

Majority of us are pulling it from Bronzor than Magnemite. Magnemite's current abilities make just as much sense now as Levitate does as well so its not really something I see them correcting after 5 generations.

It really won't be that hard...I mean Beedrill flies in the air in all his sprites and will most likely be flying in the 3D model. It doesn't have Levitate and isn't a Flying type. Him, Volcarona, Dustox, Chandelure...There are Pokemon that can learn Fly that cannot fly, and you have Pokemon that can hover off the ground but cannot use Fly, don't have Levitate, or are not flying type. With all this in mind, Magnemite not having Levitate really isn't that big a deal.

If this thing gets levitate then it will be a competitive BEAST. Immune to poison spikes and spike(if it gets levitate) and stealth rock won't do much. Just don't give this thing crappy stats like sableye please!

This thing is definitely a little different than the kinds of designs I'm used to Pokemon having, but that isn't at all a bad thing. I think he's pretty awesome! Hoping its stats are decent.

Expect this one to see a lot of hate. Unjustified hate. "OMG I hate all pogeymanz not based on animuls!!!111!1".

It's a nice Pokémon, but I would've preferred one based on an empty knight armor set, even though there's already Golurk.

I'm not really liking the design on this one. When I first saw it, I thought it was an item not a Pokemon. It might be a little more appealing/believable (I use that word loosely, of course) if it had some kind of ghostly aura around it.

Spoiler:
Honestly, the way that the fanbase has reacted to this Pokemon kind of sickens me a bit. The vast majority of people either started making childish genwunner comments or fanboying over it like an old cat lady would fanboy over a Harry Potter MMO. When someone says something like "I don't really like the design of this Pokemon", they would get attacked to no avail, being accused of being a genwunner and told they weren't allowed to voice their opinion on its design just because "gen one also had bad designs". Yeah, gen one had bad designs. So did 2, 3, 4, 5; gen 6 isn't any different. Why are people feeling the need to run around calling each other "untrue fans" just because they like or dislike a new Pokemon design? This happens with most new releases, but I feel like it's been insane with this one because of its obscure inspiration. We all really dropped the ball on this one as a whole.

^Me complaining about the way genwunners and newgenners have reacted to Honedge so far, read at you own risk^

As far as how my opinion on Honedge goes, I honestly don't really like the design. The typing is original, and who knows, it may have a personality in the anime or some in-game charisma that make me like it more, but when it comes to design ALONE, I don't think it's very good. I think they coulda added a bit more of something (not quite sure, so I can't fully judge) to make it seem like more than a sword that floats (I think Chandelure and Metagross are better examples of inanimate object Pokes), but that's just me

The pokemon is just a haunted sword...something that has been going around in games for a while now Swordcraft is an example...that game had a possessed sword as one of the enemies.
