With just three months until Pokémon X & Y arrives, the hype generator is gradually being cranked up to maximum gear. Just yesterday we saw new 3DS XL models that are coming to Japan, and today we have new images and footage of a brand new 'mon — Honedge.

As the image suggests and as reported by Serebii, Honedge — that's its English name — is a Steel / Ghost Type, which is said to be possessed by departed spirits. It has a blue cloth that can function as an arm, requires careful use by Trainers and can learn Swords Dance; it's 2'07" and weighs 4.4lbs.

As well as these screenshots, Junichi Masuda has presented a video with more details on the game and some brief footage of Honedge in action. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
