In battle
If Shield Forme Aegislash uses a damaging move, it changes to Blade Forme immediately before using the move. If Blade Forme Aegislash uses {{m|King's Shield}}, it changes to Shield Forme immediately before using the move. [[Status move]]s other than King's Shield will not change its Forme. {{cat|Moves that call other moves}}, such as {{m|Sleep Talk}}, will not change its Forme, even if they call a damaging move or King's Shield.
 
If a PokémonAegislash attempts to use a move, even if it cannot useexecute it due to an effect such as a [[status condition]] or {{status|confusion}}, King'sStance ShieldChange still activates accordingly.
 
{{m|Role Play}}, {{m|Gastro Acid}}, {{m|Worry Seed}}, {{m|Simple Beam}}, and {{m|Entrainment}} fail if the target has the Ability Stance Change. {{m|Skill Swap}} fails if either Pokémon has Stance Change. Stance Change cannot be copied by {{a|Trace}}, {{a|Power of Alchemy}}, or {{a|Receiver}}. Stance Change cannot be replaced by {{a|Mummy}} or suppressed by {{m|Core Enforcer}}. If a Pokémon other than Aegislash obtains Stance Change with {{a|Imposter}} or {{m|Transform}}, the Pokémon will not change Formes.
