Voice Actors
Iris' Axew was first seen appearing out of Iris's large hairdo, much to the surprise of Ash Ketchum and Ash's Pikachu. Ash helped rescue Axew from Team Rocket when they captured it just after Iris met Ash.

Axew is Iris's main Pokémon and it doesn't seem to like to travel in its monster ball. It seems to prefer traveling on Iris's shoulders and in her hair.

Mastering Dragon Rage

Iris had been practicing Dragon Rage with her Kibago for quite a while and every time the attack was used it was unsuccessful and created a crater in the ground where the attack was used and injured everyone in the area. After being captured by Team Rocket along with Crimgan, Iris' Axew managed to master Dragon Rage which was powerful enough to crash their flying transport mecha. In the battle encounter with Team Rocket that occurred after the crash, Iris' Axew showed everyone that it had finally mastered the move by launching a successful attack at Team Rocket but they managed to escape before it hit them.

Don Battles Against Luke's Golett

Iris' Axew and Luke's Golett were matched up in the semi-final round of the Don Battles in Raimon Town. Luke's Golett dominated most of the battle and just as Iris' Axew was about to be defeated, it learned the move Outrage. Outrage was able to do significant damage to Luke's Golett and it knocked it out which eliminated Luke from the tournament.

Battle against Cynthia's Garchomp / Learning Giga Impact

Iris asked to battle Cynthia's Garchomp with her Kibago as she was working on becoming a Dragon Master. Even before it the started, the battled seemed like Cynthia's Garchomp would win. Iris' Axew could not do any damage to Cynthia's Garchomp until it finally concentrated for a few moments and learned Giga Impact. While Giga Impact was able to do some damage to Cynthia's Garchomp, it quickly overpowered Iris' Axew until Cynthia decided to end the match before a finishing blow.

Iris' Haxorus is the evolved form of Iris' Axew. It evolved sometime before the events of Iris and Ash Ketchum's Pokémon World Tournament battle.
