Haxorus is an enormous, tall bipedal reptilian Pokémon that possesses traits of both dinosaurs and dragons. Its body is powerfully built all around, and heavily armored with thick pale green and black scales. Its claws on both its hands and feet are red. Haxorus has a long segmented scaly neck, small red eyes, and a beak-like mouth. Two razor-sharp double-edged red and black tusks protrude from either side of its mouth. It has a thick, powerful green tail with a black tip.
Haxorus are generally kind Pokémon, but they can be very territorial.
Haxorus is the evolved form of Fraxure as of level 48. Haxorus is the final form of Axew.
Haxorus's sprite bears resemblance to Tyranitar's gen 3 sprite.
Haxorus' Japanese name is likely a combination of 斧 ono (axe) and 戦く ononokus, (to shudder) or アックス akkusu (axe). The hax in Haxorus may refer to the axe-like blades coming from each side of its mouth or hacking and -orus may refer to saurus or saur (Latin for lizard), a word commonly used in Dinosaur names, referring to its saurian-like design.
