If you're someone who's trying to round out your team in Pokemon Sword and Shield before the Isle of Armor DLC drops in June 2020, then you're not alone! We're trying to make sure that we're picking up every variety of 'Mon in the meantime, so if you're gunning for some final forms that are a little harder to get, why not check out our guide on how to evolve Doublade in Pokemon Sword and Shield?
How to Evolve Doublade in Pokemon Sword and Shield
A Doublade is merely the second step in the evolutionary tree of a Honedge. The final form of this bladed devil is Aegislash, which means that if you're looking at this guide, that's the beast that you're gunning for and you probably already have a Doublade in mind that you want to put through the evolutionary process. However, if you don't possess one already, you can head to the Stony Wilderness and the Watchtower Ruins to get your hands on one before following along with our guide.
Now that you have your Doublade, it's time to evolve it. It's not as simple as just leveling it up. You're going to need one very important thing in order to turn your Doublade into an Aegislash: a Dusk Stone. Not to be confused with a Dawn Stone, a Dusk Stone is another evolutionary rock that you'll need to have in your possession if you're curious about how to evolve Doublade in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Once you have it, it's as simple as using it on your Doublade to kick everything off.
Unsure about where to actually get a Dusk Stone? You'll be able to pick one up fairly early along in Stow-on-Side and it's situated conveniently behind the Pokemon Center. If you miss that, you'll be able to get a second chance once your Rotom bike can travel over water - there's the Galarian Stonehenge series of rocks kicking around the Lake of Outrage, and looting the rocks might give you a Dusk Stone if you're lucky.
