Ha, sword dance. That sword poke is awesome, so much so that I may have to a buy a 3DS to play

A 'sharp' Pokemon?
Tsk, where's a good tomato when you need it.

How exactly does Honedge USE Swords Dance? Does it just, like, keep floating there, or does it break into the robot?

Lol, a sword. Maybe they'll have a toaster that spews flaming toast.

Song we have a thread on this?


Also I predicted SD on this in the introducing monorpale (now edited to English name) thread from yesterday

There are times when they make me think. "Hey, they're getting really good at making new character designs!"

And then there are other times where their character designs make me go "Wow.. Really?" ... This is one of those times.

It's actually not simply just a sword, it's a Tsukumogami; a Japanese yokai of a household item that has come to life, that's why it's not just a steel type, but also a ghost type.

I personally think this Pokemon is cool.

I'm really liking how it's looking; its 'backstory' sounds pretty interesting too. Can't say I've really warmed up to the name yet however. xD Definitely keeping my eye on this one as a potential team member.

After looking into it, it looks like it's actually designed for competitive play. I can't say it's stats are great, but this looks like a Baton Pass Pokemon. I'm hoping it has good speed and defense (it's a steel type, so I doubt I have to worry for defense) so it can build up successive Sword Dances early on.

I suppose the backstory is pretty neat. And I like swords, I think they're cool. No hate here. I'd just never thought I'd see a sword.. pokemon. Haha. I suppose there are worse things a pokemon could be made after.

Hmm, A little on the fence on this one, no fan of it's name. But i like the design, when I first saw it I thought it was a Fakémon.

It likely is a bulky physical sweeper

It looks awsome in its unsheathed form. I hope that is also a form.

From screenshots, he's not wearing the sheath in-battle, and there's one where he's simply holding it. Maybe he wears it when not in battle, and his coming-out-of-the-Pokeball animation is him unsheathing himself?
