Swordsmith Makes A Pokémon

Blacksmith Tony Swatton in his "Man at Arms" Youtube series regularly makes iconic video game weaponry, like a few weeks ago when he crafted the energy sword from Halo. You may then be asking yourself why he has created a Pokémon in his latest video? Well, because that Pokémon is also a sword.

Gaze upon a real-life Honedge. While Honedge's elaborate scabbard wasn't also recreated, this video is more than worth watching to see a man dressed as Ash Ketchum wielding a deadly weapon and spouting off cheesy Pokémon related one-liners. The Steel/Ghost type and its two evolved forms, Doublade and Aegislash, are relative newcomers to the world of Pokémon, first appearing in Pokémon X and Y for the 3DS. Watch what might be the closest the world will ever get to a real Pokémon in the video below.
