For those who don’t know, Aegislash debuted in the main line series in generation VI. In other words, it was introduced in Pokemon X and Y. This is pretty interesting, because players would think Aeglislash joined the game in Pokemon Sword and Shield. But nope, it’s actually from the generation before. Anyhow, Aegislash is a steel ghost type pokemon. By switching between an offensive and defensive form, the pokemon makes great use of both
Utilizing physical attack, the sword shaped pokemon will play as an all rounder, with three different evolutionary forms. Beginning as Honeedge, the pokemon evolves into Doublade at level 5. Then at level 7, Doublade evolves into the final form, Aegislash. None of the movesets have been shown as of now, but this pokemon will definitely be quite interesting. Though a little unconventional in regards to design, Aegislash opens up the opportunity for one of the most unqiue pokemon to join Pokemon Unite.

As a whole, Aegislash would be a really cool addition to Pokemon Unite. Don’t forget, this isn’t an official announcement. But the direct evidence pointing towards Pokemon UNite Aegislash are rather undeniable. The only way that the pokemon doesn’t enter the game is if the Pokemon Unite developers purposely remove the data out of spite.
