The latest Pokemon to join the next entries in the franchise, Pokemon X and Y, is Doublade — an evolution of the sword-like Honedge, as revealed by a post today on Pokemon's official Facebook page.
According to the post, Doublade is a steel-and-ghost-type Pokemon weighing 9.9 lbs. and standing two feet, seven inches tall. Doublade is "capable of carrying out intricate attacks" by coordinating its twin blades via telepathic power. You can view the new Pokemon in the photo above.
