Then why did they bother adding another Flying/Steel to take it's place then?

Because this time they are going to balance it? Either nerf his stats or take away all the utility moves.

It looks like the stats are nerfed if the estimates I saw were true. 80/100 on HP/Defenses isn't going to stop Excadrill.
Is that Christ bullet ten-tapped?

You think they will balance anything ever?

You must be new.

After the affront to logic that was not including the sun and moon Pokemon in Pokemon Sun and Moon, it only makes sense they'd pardon their crime by adding the sword and shield Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

I had the same thought. Aegislash also fits the British theme too: knights and all that. Maybe Solrock and Lunatone weren't Hawaiian enough. -_- But apparently they are British enough since Solrock and Lunatone are, allegedly/according to leaked 'dex, in this generation.

Last I saw the stats were estimated as:

HP: 100
Att: 90
Def: 110
SpA: 55
SpD: 85
Spe: 80

Skarmory's base stats according to the Smogon page are:

HP:65
Attack: 80
Defense: 140
Sp. Atk: 40
Sp. Def: 70
Speed: 70

He gets Head Smash you know
Mandibuzz is too bulky to care and will ohko it with Foul Play. It also runs Taunt.

You get him on the switch. After SR damage, Head Smash prevents Mandibuzz from safely switching in.

I'm seeing all sorts of numbers all over the place. I'll wait for definitive datamines or for the game to just actually release before making a judgment call. 100/110 physical bulk is ok given the typing, but he's going to need utility moves to be worth the effort.

4 Atk Life Orb Aegislash-Blade Head Smash vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Mandibuzz: 382-452 (90.3 - 106.8%) -- 43.8% chance to OHKO after Leftovers recovery

and even then, Mandibuzz has a hardtime stopping defensive Aegislash without Taunt tbh, which only 20% of Mandibuzz used in the past month
