Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Sacred Sword is Aegislash's first move. It is obtained by evolving into Doublade at level 5 and upgrading Shadow Sneak into it instead of Shadow Claw. The user thrusts its blade into the ground, creating a triangular zone. This zone erupts with a hidden power, dealing damage to enemies in the area and throws them. Also increases boost count by 1 for each enemy hit (capped at 2 for wilds, 4 for players). At the same time as the eruption, the user slashes forward, dealing additional damage to enemies hit. For a short time after this slash hits, damage dealt by the user ignores 45% of the enemies' Defense. At level 11, this move also increases Attack by 50 for a short time after hitting enemies with the triangle attack.
