It does help to read between the lines. As for the villain team, imo I don't think they will use the Honedge-line, sounds like a red herring bet to me. As for what I think the villain team will use, probs stuff relating to their possible industrialist agenda or something.
Hmmm... Maybe Team Destruction, or Team Blade.
For Sword, Honedge would make sense. Foe Shield, the only pokemon I can think of is Shieldon.
