Honedge (Japanese: ヒトツキ Hitotsuki) is a dual-type Steel/Ghost Pokémon.

It evolves into Doublade starting at level 35, which evolves into Aegislash when exposed to a Dusk Stone.

Biology

Honedge with its sheath removed

Honedge is a Pokémon that resembles a sword from the medieval times. Honedge's appearance sheathed is dark brown with curved lines across its surface. Its appearance unsheathed is a silver sword, with a gem that looks like an eye engraved on its hilt. Attached to the pommel is a long, dark blue cloth with a swirl design in lighter blue at its four-split end. The sash is known to suck out the life energy of anyone around whose arm it wraps.

Trivia

Origin

Honedge appears to be based conceptually on a fully sentient, possessed magical sword. The fact that it starts off as an ordinary sword may mean it could be based on the bushido mythos behind katana use; katanas possessed the user samurai's soul and attacked of its own free will. In Japanese legends, any object left behind or forgotten by its owner can and will after a while become a tsukumogami, and most commonly in legends, swords or umbrellas were the ones to attack humans. Considering it drains the life of those who wield it, it may have also been based on the cursed tyrfing. Visually, considering its build and hilt, Honedge seems to be based on either a spatha, claymore, or possibly jian sword, with its own scabbard and tassel-like prehensile limb.

Name origin

Honedge may be a combination of hone, one and edge.

Hitotsuki may be a combination of 一つ hitotsu (one) and 突き tsuki (stab, lunge, or thrust) or 付き tsuki (attached), possibly referring to how the sword is attached to the scabbard even when unsheathed.
