Sacred Sword or Iron Head for Aegislash?

0 votes

I found the following moveset for Aegislash on Smogon:

-Shadow Sneak
-Sacred Sword/Iron Head
-King's Shield
-Swords Dance

Is it better to take this with Sacred Sword (coverage) or Iron Head (STAB)?

Hey Sanne

I think (just my personal opinion) that it is better to go for the STAB. If you ever need the coverage you can simpely switch out. Also when you are in a battle where you don't need the coverage, iron head will do much more damage.

hope I helped you

It depends on what he is, an attacker or an special attacker.

Sacred sword all the time. You have shadow sneak for your stab anyway, but after a few swords dances the stab boost wont matter any more. Sacred sword is very important for extra type coverage, as you do not want to have to switch out and waste a turn, also losing your important stat boosts.
