Axew is a bipedal, grayish-green Pokémon with pale, straight tusks protruding from the sides of its mouth. These tusks can regenerate if broken, and will regrow if they fall out. This repeated regrowth strengthens and sharpens its tusks. The tusks serve numerous purposes, from making territorial gashes in trees to crushing Berries for eating. The back of its head is dark grayish-green with a tall, slightly curved horn. Large, dark grayish-green ovals surround its red eyes, and it has a short, rounded snout with large nostrils. A forest green collar marking encircles its neck. Axew's limbs and tail are short, with its forelimbs having three digits and its feet having two digits. As shown in the anime, Axew is skilled at climbing walls.
NA:Axew may look like it's brought its dinner with it, but those things in its mouth are actually tusks! It can mark its territory with them or crush berries for a tasty meal. All that wear and tear on them can sometimes break them off, but don't worry! If Axew loses a tusk, it'll grow back quickly and even stronger than before.
PAL:No, that's not some delicious snack poking out either side of its mouth - those are tusks. Axew uses them to break through the hard outer shells of its favourite fruits and to carve territorial markings on trees. Occasionally, its tusks can break, but they just grow back stronger than before.
This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation V.
