I'm trying to catch a Honedge with the Stance Change ability, but for some reason all the ones I've caught so far have No Guard. Is there only a specific place where they'll have that ability, or is there something else I'm missing?

Honedge (as well as Doublade) only have one possible ability, No Guard. Upon being evolved to Aegislash (use a Dusk Stone on a Doublade), No Guard will become Stance Change. Aegislash is the only (current) Pokemon with the Sance Change ability.

    Oh. I thought I had seen Honedge and Doublade were able to change forms between sheathed and unsheathed in promo art and screenshots.

  • @Cobalt If you watch Honedge and Doublade come out of their PokéBalls, you'll see why they have that design ;) Jul 1, 2014 at 16:02
