If Honedge is single stage, levitate is a possibility, though I still doubt it. If the thing does end up evolving into a suit of armor or something, because I can't see it just becoming a bigger sword, I think levitate is definitely out of contention.
If it doesn't get Levitate, I think something like Cursed Body would be a good fit for it.

Yup, here's hoping. I think it would be awesome if it isn't just a gimmick! You guys make great points toward it being not so, so maybe.
I think it will be awesome. And while I definitely think levitate is a possibility, I also think it's not a certainty. I feel GF is moving away from tossing Levitate to every ghost pokemon and looking to insert more variety. I mean Yamask/Cofagrigas could easily have been given Levitate, but they got their own signature ability, Mummy. Lampent/Chandelure could have gained levitate like Vibrava/Flygon and Hydreigon, but they kept Flame Body and Flash Fire instead. While nearly every pokemon with Levitate has it as their only ability, the Bronzor/Bronzong line has two potential abilities (One of which is Levitate) and a Hidden Ability. I think that could be the case here. I'm just going to quote what I said earlier, since they are still my feelings on the matter:
I don't think it going sheathed and unsheathed should quality as two different forms, because it doesn't alter its appearance at all, it just puts its scabbard on.
Pokemon like Cherrim and Darmanitan actually changes their appearances, while Pokemon like Castform and Burmy gains additional features depending on the weather and the area, respectively. Honedge doesn't quality for any of those, so I think it just unsheathes itself to battle (being sheathed when not in battle). I guess it being sheathed could be its animation when it's low at health, like how other Pokemon may start panting/look very tired etc (I hope they do add low health animations, it would certainly give the battle more life).
Whatever they do, I just hope they don't give it Levitate. Would be such a wasted opportunity to give it a unique/better fitting ability.

Lol I like how nobody voted for "I hate them all"
Since Generation 3 , 2 version mascot been 2 opposite force !
Gen III : Ground against sea
Gen IV : Time against Space
Gen V : Truth against Ideal
So , I wonder if Xerneas & Yveltal going to represent 2 opposite force !
Gen VI will be Love vs Fear with Xerneas representing ''Love'''While Yveltal representing ''Fear'' !
After all , Love & Fear are 2 opposite weapon to control people !
Wasn't Gen IV more about 'Free Will and Emotions'? Since Cyrus wanted to create a world without emotion, thus making people the same and robotic in a sense.
Idk I don't think Gen VI is going to be about opposing forces...something just tells me that it's not what GF's going for this time. Yveltal and Xerneas just look so different, I'm not even entirely sure these two pokemon will be opposing each other this time. But since they haven't given a single clue to the villains for this gen, I can't figure much out about what they could even represent. I'm sticking to the idea that maybe Yveltal and Xerneas aren't opposing each other.
I can only gather by Masuda's infatuation with the Carnac stones that King Arthur and Merlin might be involved. Meaning Honedge might be GF's take on Excalibur, making possible an evolution named Hexcalibur (I don't take credit for that).

yes he is.
The fangirl in me is squealing.
But in all seriousness, I'd love to see a connection between Golurk and Honedge. I so want my Riser to be able to use that sword in battle, as it would be epic. Even if he can't, there's still going to be a Honedge on my team as a back-up to my Golurk. (Oh yeah, I don't care what it takes. I am having an Automaton with me when I hit Kalos.)
This Gen is shaping up to be epically awesome!
