Stance Change allows Aegislash to switch between Shield Forme (high defensesdefensive stats, low offensesoffensive stats) and Blade Forme (high attackoffensive stats, low defensedefensive stats). ItWhen it is sent into battle it begins in its 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, regardless of what Forme it was prior to being switched out.
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.
