This makes your speed fast and provides benefits during combat. When Ghostium Z is held while using the Shadow Sneak move, it converts it into Never-Ending Nightmare with a base power of 100.

Fury Cutter
Aegislash can learn the Fury Cutter move by reaching Level 1. It will damage your opponent by base power of 40 at the start, and each time you land consecutive successful hits, the power will boost up to a double amount of that, going to a maximum of 160 base power.

While hoding Buginium Z, this move converts to Savage Spin-Out with base power 100.

Metal Sound
