Honedge Revealed for Pokemon X&Y

Game Freak revealed a new ghost/steel type pokemon today, Honedge. The new Pokemon is basically a possessed sword, which is definitely a unique design compared to their usual fare being more oriented towards animal-like Pokemon. The official description of Honedge is as follows:

“It is now known that Honedge comes into being when a departed spirit possesses a sword that once belonged to humans. It can use the blue cloth attached to its hilt as nimbly as an arm. Pokémon Trainers who carelessly take this blade in hand may find the blue cloth wrapping itself around them and draining their energy!

Honedge can learn the attack Swords Dance, a Normal-type move. Swords Dance is a frenetic dance that uplifts the fighting spirit and sharply raises the user’s Attack stat. The effect can be increased by using this move multiple times in succession, helping Trainers who deploy this move at the beginning of a battle to overwhelm one opponent after another!”

So, what do you guys think? Are the currently revealed/newer Pokemon good additions?
