What Pokemon Have Updated Stats?

Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon Sword and Shield

Much like how a number of previous Mainstream Pokemon Games have seen certain Pokemon receive stat updates, so the same can be said for Pokemon Sword & Shield. However, unlike previous versions, only one Pokemon actually experienced one with the move to The Galar Region. This Pokemon is none other than Aegislash, and, unfortunately, it received a stat decrease.

Aegislash was nerfed for a variety of reasons, but the main cause was because it has been considered extremely overpowered since it was first created. Whether in its Defensive Shield Form or Offensive Blade Form, Aegislash has been the thorn in many trainers' side since it first was introduced to the World of Pokemon back in the 6th Generation.

But if you're a fan of the Steel / Ghost Type, then you'll be glad to hear it's stats didn't decrease too much. Now, when in its Shield Form, Aegislash will have a Base Defense Stat of 140 and Base Special Defense Stat of 140 (instead of a Base Stat of 150 for each previously). When in its Blade Form, both its Base Attack Stat and Base Special Attack Stat will also be at 140 (a decrease from 150 for both).
