Would this mean that in the offensive stance, Aegislash's offensive stats would be higher than defensive stats and vice-versa?

Power Trick will switch the base stats of Aegislash. So, it will have a great Attack in Shield Forme and great Defense in Sword Forme. Sorry for the fuzzy answer. :P

Hope I helped. :)

Yes it does.

If Aegislash uses the move while it is in Shield Forme it will swap Aegislash's Defence Stat with it's Attack Stat.

If Aegislash uses the move while it is in Blade Forme it will swap Aegislash's Attack Stat with it's Defence Stat.

So for example if I used Power Trick while in Shield Forme I would essentially swap my Attack and Defence Stats round. Therefore Aegislash would have high Attack and Special Defence in Shield Forme and when it changed to Blade Form it would have high Defence and Special Attack. This would be in effect until you switched out.

Hope I helped :)

So would the stats be flipped again upon Stance Change, or would it not switch and remain the same (reverting to default upon a stance change), or would it flip each time you used Stance Change, meaning that you would only have to use Power Trick once?
Updated it :)
