New Ghost-type Pokémon Honedge Revealed for X and Y

Posted on July 5, 2013 AT 05:59am

Game Freak director Junichi Masuda has revealed a brand new Ghost-type Pokémon called Honedge that will appear in Pokémon X and Y.

Masuda made the announcement at the Japan Expo 2013, revealing that Honedge comes into existence when a departed spirit processes a sword once owned by humans. Only one of Honedge’s attacks has been revealed so far, Sword Dance, which allows the Pokémon to raise its attack stat.

Pokémon X and Y are due to release exclusively on Nintendo 3DS on October 12 worldwide.
