According to the Pokémon Company, Honedge comes into being when a departed spirit possesses a sword that once belonged to humans. It can use the blue cloth attached to its hilt as easily as if it were an arm. Trainers who carelessly take this blade in hand may find the blue cloth wrapping itself around them and draining their energy. Honedge can learn the attack Swords Dance, a Normal-type move. Swords Dance is a frenetic dance sharply raises the user’s Attack stat. The effect can be increased by using this move multiple times in succession, helping Trainers who deploy this move at the beginning of a battle to overwhelm their opponents.
