Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Iron Head is Aegislash's second move. It is obtained by reaching level 8 and upgrading Iron Defense into it instead of Wide Guard. The user dashes in the designated direction, dealing damage to enemies hit. Also increases boost count by 1, and protects the user with a special shield for a short time afterward. This shield doesn't protect from hindrances, but it can nullify damage. When the shield blocks an attack, it disappears and boost count is increased by 1. At level 13, if an attack is blocked with this move, the user gains +10% Attack for a short time.
