So I was thinking of training up a Honedge just because aegishlash looks cool, until I saw his stats. sure he has mediocre HP and Speed but that kind works in favour.

I was thinking 252 in DEF and SP DEF.
Give him King's shield, Gyro ball, Toxic and facade
or
King's shield, Gyro ball, Rest, Sleep talk.

What do you guys think. Should I change the EVs up or the moveset?

Rest sleep talk is a bad choice. The great thing about him is choosing when to enter his stances and you have no control over that while sleeping.

The most popular set right now is

252HP/252ATK/4Def
Brave
Shadow Sneak
Iron Head
Swords Dance
Kings Shield

Don't think you want Sleep Talk, it'll leave yourself open, only 1/4 chance you're going to pick King's Shield to go back on defense after the first random pick, you'll get Earthquake'd into oblivion.

Edit: Get Iron Defense back from the move Relearner then if you're really going for a good wall/stalling for toxic type thing.

STAB iron head is far better with chance to flinch especially if you aren't running another fairy counter on your team

You can control it's stances even while sleeping. If you're sleeping and you use and attack move it will switch before saying it woke up or it's fast asleep. Same goes for using a status move to change back to shield form.

Oh, that's actually pretty cool. Still, I'd opt more for Iron Defense, so if you do get hit outside of defense stance you won't totally pay for it.
