Is it just me, or does Honedge seem like a missed opportunity?

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.


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.


Well, a candle can grow into a full chandelier...

A dagger evolves into Honedge, and Honedge evolves into a ghost silhouette that wields Honedge.

Maybe it will have a split evolution. Like it starts out as a spirit, and then it can evolve a couple of different ways, one being Honedge.

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.


Because there can only be one line that's Steel/Ghost, amirite?

I'm still saying there will be a fusion-evolution of sorts with Golurk.

People seem to forget there already is a haunted suit of armor.

Major defensive type combos are more useful on offensibe breeds anyway.

Except for the fact that Golurk is based on a golem.

A Ghost/Steel defensive Pokémon who possibly has Levitate would be horribly broken and hard to deal with.

It makes sense for Honedge to be a sweeper from a balance perspective.
