Pokémon GO Axew Raid Guide – Axew Counters & Weaknesses

Need help defeating this tiny Dragon?

The rare and highly sought-after Pokémon Axew is currently available in Raids in Pokémon GO. This Pokémon evolves into the menacing Haxorous and is a great addition to any team. This Pokémon won't be too tough to take down in battle since it is only a One-Star Raid, but a Raid Guide is always nice to have so players can take the most effective Pokémon into battle with them.

Axew is a solely Dragon-type Pokémon and is vulnerable to Ice, Dragon, and Fairy-type moves. It is resistant to Fire, Water, Grass, and Electric-type attacks, so players should avoid bringing these types of Pokémon with them.
