In battle: this is as good a place as any to elaborate on aegislash
===In battle===
Stance Change allows Aegislash to switch between BladeShield Forme (high defenses, low offenses) and Blade Forme (high attack stats, low defense stats). It begins in Shield Forme. It changes to Blade Forme when using an attacking move, and reverts to Shield Forme when using {{m|King's Shield}}. Other status moves will not change its form. Switching out reverts it to Shield Forme.
Stance Change cannot be {{a|Trace}}d, copied with {{m|Role Play}}, 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.
