first of all, Aegislash does not go into shield form when using Swords Dance. he must either use King's Shield or switch out then switch back in. secondly, since boosting moves affect the base stats and not the actual stat itself, its attack is still raised when it switches forms and the same goes for defense-boosting moves such as Iron Defense. it's easy enough to tell this by simply using a weak move such as Shadow Sneak on the same Pokemon over and over with different boosting moves and seeing how much more damage it does.
on another note, would anyone care to help me evolve my Haunter? i can't afford two 3DS's so i sadly have to rely on other people for trade evolutions.
