===In battle===
Stance Change allows Aegislash to switch between Blade Forme and Shield Forme. It changes to Blade Forme when using an attacking move, and reverts to Shield Forme when using {{m|King's Shield}} or any move that increases its Defense or Special Defense, such as {{m|Iron Defense}}. Other status moves will not change its form.
Stance Change cannot be {{a|Trace}}d, {{m|Role Play}}ed, suppressed with {{m|Gastro Acid}}, or replaced with {{m|Simple Beam}} or {{m|Skill Swap}}. The Ability activates prior to and independently of any checks for status conditions that may stop the execution of the user's attack, such as {{status|paralysis}} or confusion.
