Aegislash is a Steel/Ghost type Pokémon introduced in Generation 6. It is known as the Royal Sword Pokémon.

Aegislash has two different forms - Shield Forme, which is more defensive, and Blade Forme, which is more offensive. Its ability, Stance Change, causes Aegislash to change into Shield Forme when a defensive move is used, or change into Blade Forme when an attacking move is used.
