Honedge, the shovel Pokemon, has existed since the medieval period when people decided to pour Red Bull on their shovels. The shovels came to life and started CONTROLLING THEIR MINDS. They absolutely resent the existence of Ground type Pokemon, as being a levitating shovel wasn't enough to protect them.
They are weak to dark, ghost, fire and ground. This means they are easily defeated by lighting their shadows on fire, but only if the shadow is on the ground.
