Nintendo and Game Freak promised a Pokemon X and Pokemon Y reveal on Wednesday and they have delivered. Introducing Doublade, the evolution of Steel/Ghost Pokemon Honedge who was announced earlier this year. As the name would imply, Doublade is basically just two Honedges paired together as if they were hanging over a mantle. Except these heirloom swords are... HAUNTED!
While nothing particularly new was revealed about Doublade considering he's quite similar to Honedge, here's the details we now know:
- Type: Steel/Ghost
- Ability: No Guard, which ensures attacks by or against the Pokémon land. Also, out of combat if a Pokemon with No Guard is leading the party the Pokemon encounter rate increases to 150% (Gen. V).
- Height: 2'07"
- Weight: 9.9 lbs
That's what we know about Doublade, which was all we knew about Honedge when he was revealed too. Well, at least we get two swords for the price of one Pokemon reveal this time, right? Ha!
Pokemon X and Pokemon Y will both be launched on October 12 worldwide, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. Expect more Pokemon reveals in the days and weeks to come.
