Doublade (ニダンギル) is the 118th Pokémon in the Kalos Central Pokédex. It is a Steel/Ghost-Type, and is known as the Sword Pokémon.

Doublade uses the No Guard Ability, which increases the Accuracy of all moves used by the Pokémon that are in battle to 100% regardless of changes to Accuracy or Evasion.

Honedge can evolve into Doublade at Level 35, and can evolve into Aegislash by using a Dusk Stone.

Doublade is in the Mineral Egg Group. It takes Doublade One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Doublade is a part of the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. With a high base 150 Defense that can be further bolstered by Eviolite, Doublade is a great tank that can take many physical attacks. Its typing gives it numerous resistances while its nice base 110 Attack stat can be further amplified by Swords Dance, which gives Doublade a niche as a bulky sweeper. With priority in Shadow Sneak, Doublade is far from a sitting duck against faster revenge killers. However, Doublade's low base 49 Special Defense cannot be salvaged by Eviolite and leaves it open to being taken out by many special attackers. Its low Speed leaves it open to being outsped by walls like Gligar and Umbreon, which can recover on Doublade and retaliate with a super effective STAB. Doublade also has common weaknesses to Fire, Ground, and Dark attacks and is crippled by Knock Off.
