What happens when you trace stance change?

So say you have an Aegislash and your opponent had a kirlia with trace and it traced stance change, what would happen to the kirlia if anything?

Stance Change cannot be Traced, copied with Role Play, suppressed with Gastro Acid, or replaced with Simple Beam, Worry Seed, Entrainment, or Skill Swap. If a Pokémon other than Aegislash obtains Stance Change with Imposter, the Pokémon will not change Formes.

First sentence says it can't be traced ;)

Trace copies the Ability of the current opponent. Trace cannot copy Trace, Multitype, Illusion, Imposter, or Stance Change; however, Trace can copy Wonder Guard. In a Double Battle, Trace will randomly copy either opponent's Ability.

as you see can't trace copy stance change so you will either receive a "but it failed" message or nothing will happen. simple answer but thats how it is
