Wow, nothing new to say? I guess we're all rather busy guys.
Well, I'm still trying to make teams, as I do. Many Pokémon are giving me an interest, like Scizor, Noivern and Aegislash. In fact my WiFi team will use Aegislash (would be Scizor, but I want to use new Pokémon). But what's its best set? Mixed wallbreaker, or SD sweeper, or Kings Shield + 3 Attacks? I think it has the bulk in Defense form to set up SD, Kings Shield + 3 attacks (mixed) could work, but might lack power. Mixed wallbreaker is OK, but I think Aegislash is more of a bulky hitter than a hit and run Pokémon. From jabbering on, I think I'll go with an SD set, with Kings Shield. I think it can pick off certain threats with enough boosts, and it's checks are small enough to be handled easily enough- bulky Ground/Water types, Fire types and faster Ghosts (e.g. Mega Gengar, although Shadow Sneak would probably beat it).

I think this best makes use of Aegislash's great defenses in Shield form, and it's huge offenses in Attack form. Swords Dance lets it set up like a boss, an easy +2 Attack, which isn't hard to do now Ghost types are a definite threat to most Pokémon now. Kings Shield is fantastic- the ability to have a Protect and a -2 Attack for the opponent, which ruins Physical attackers attempting to hit Aegislash. It also resets Aegislash to Shield form, which helps it cushion hits aiming at it. Shadow Sneak has priority, and is STAB, and lets it deal with quite a lot of Pokémon in the game, like Mega Alakazam/Gengar, who are quite threatening. Sacred Sword has perfect coverage with Aegislash's Ghost STAB, and hits TTar and Chansey very hard.
