Axew, the Tusk Pokémon. Axew marks its territory by making scratch marks on trees with its tusks, which regrow if they fall out.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Axew is one of the main Pokemon in the Black/White anime “Best Wishes”; Iris, one of the main characters who travels with Ash, has an Axew. It seems to live in her hair, and pops out of her hair quite often. In Japanese, Axew’s name is “Kibago”, so it goes “Kiba kiba”, which makes it sound cute. In the English anime, it says “Ax, Axew, Ax ew ew” or something to that effect.
Axew is part of the only pure Dragon family. Before, Dragon types evolve into dual types (Dragonite and Salamence).
Stat-wise, it has high Attack, good Speed and decent Defenses. It has pretty good stats for a first stage evolution Pokemon.
