Ghost/steel is supposed to be one of the best defensive type combos right? And they gave it to a possessed sword instead of, say, possessed armor. Assuming they keep the all-ghosts-having-a-unique thing, it seems like they could have done a lot better.

What's to say it won't evolve into a possessed suit of armor? It was revealed only recently and there's few details about it.

Parrying sword?

It's not, but I doubt that would stop Gamefreak.

It just seems weird to have a sword turn to armor. While it does seem possible, it just doesn't make sense to me. Besides, such an evolution would likely cause a massive change in stats. sure, stuff like that has been done before, but it makes more sense to have them unrelated.

Meh. Not any stranger than Magikarp, Remoraid or Feebas evos (and I don't care what they are based on, it still is out there).

Missed? They could create as many opportunities as they need to.

Fish evolving into an octopus? Possessed mask evolving into a sarcophagus? Nonsense evolution have happened, and I wouldn't even consider ghost sword > ghost armor all that weird.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who immediately thought this was a missed opportunity for a haunted armor Pokemon. Hopefully the evolution takes care of that.
