Axew (Japanese: キバゴ Kibago) is a Dragon-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves into Fraxure starting at level 38, which evolves into Haxorus starting at level 48.

Biology

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. Axew's tusks serve numerous purposes, such as making territorial gashes in trees and boulders, playing with each other, and crushing Berries for eating. In ancient times, people used Axew's discarded tusks as cooking knives.

The back of Axew's 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 and trees. Axew lives in nests made in the ground.

Evolution

Axew evolves into Fraxure, which evolves into Haxorus.

(For specifics on this Pokémon's evolution in the games, refer to Game data→Evolution data.)

Trophy information

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.

Trivia

Origin

Axew, as well as its final form Haxorus, is based in dinosaurs. Its crest may be based on the crests characteristic of hadrosaurids (Saurolophus, specifically), or perhaps a Corytophanid such as the brown basilisk. Axew's tusks seem to be based on axes.

Axew's design was reverse-engineered from its evolved form Haxorus, which was one of the first Unova Pokémon to be designed.[1]

Name origin

Axew may be a combination of axe and chew or hew (to chop a material with a tool).

Kibago may be a combination of 牙 kiba (fang or tusk), 顎 ago (jaw), and dragon.
