Aegislash changes forms, it dramatically shifts its body.

Are there other Pokemon with individualized animations when changing forms/appearances? Is there some universal animation used for changing forms with some/the all of these Pokemon(excluding mega evolutions)

Pokemon that change forms/appearances during battle:

  • Castform
  • Cherrim
  • Darmanitan
  • Meloetta
  • Zorua/Zoroark's Illusion
  • using Transform

Aegislash is the only Pokemon that actually moves and changes form. The other Pokemon that you mentioned all use the same animation, a black fuzzy image covering them and disappearing(sorry I couldn't find a picture).This is most likely because these Pokemon change shape, while Aegislash's form doesn't change, just its stance.

Here is a video showcasing a Zoroark, if you want to see the form changing animation. Skip to 5:09 to see the animation.

Hope I helped!
