I prefer Haxorus, mainly because he's more fun to use and the fact he can learn Dragon Dance(: if only Hydreigon could... but Hydreigon has good Sp. Atk which I like. Still Haxorus is my babyBig Grin

Stats wize always go with Haxorus. Its ability and offensive movepool is better.

Hydreigon is usually a specs or scarfed. Its speed leaves things to be desired. Also its ability sucks. Not useful on Hydreigon. Also it doesn't get Psyshock. Which means its STILL walled by blissey.

@Eli: I thought that at first too, but I base a lot of my opinions on how well they do in competitive battling. Do not get me wrong, he's one of the strongest dragons, but... he's just lacking options, movepool, and such, Haxorus has him beat in that sense.

Maybe it's because I see it in like ALL the battling videos on YouTube. XD

Can't Hydreigon be effective as a Mixed Attacker too?

Yes, Hydreigon can, but his movepool is just kinda bad for a dragon. I think Hydreigon is gonna have to wait until there's a move tutor in either the remake of Ruby/Sapphire or if they do make a gray version or something. I don't even know anymore, but yeah, that's what I think.

Oh... oh my...

Well, Haxorus has the highest Attack of all Non-Legendary Dragons, and Hydeigon has the highest Special Attack of them. I guess they're both pretty good, just depends on which side of attacking you want.

Yes, just depends on your strategy. Usually I go with Sp. Atk over physical, but Haxorus is cute Tongue

Hydreigon is better to me because Poddie has the game and came to my house and his is awesome, but it is Poke-Saved,x3. But I searched Haxorus up and I think Hydreigon is still a little better...:3

^lol. Seriously thats sotm's awesome signature poke. (I stole it)

Yeah I guess Hydreigon would be a good poke if there wasn't latios.



Latios > Hydreigon

Latios has better speed and special att, gets psyshock and has better coverage.

Choose latios Everytime.

I got a shiny Haxorus, and Now I offcialy love it.

Its far cooler than Hydreigon design wise. Although Hydreigon is better with stats and moves.

I honestly like both of them. I don't care about the moves or stats they have. xD Design-wise, they're both pretty awesome. Thankfully, there was a "Both" option. Smile If I had to choose, I'd go with Hydreigon, mainly because I slaved myself last year to hatch a male one with decent IVs (which I usually don't care about). And then, training it was killer... I think I cried four different times because the hustle ability scarred me for life and the moves kept missing.

I could never find Kibago/Axew in the Mistralton Cave place when hunting Cobalion, so yeah. ._. I'm raising an Axew now (lol months later) Anyway, to the topic, I just like both, design-wise. Smile Their shiny colors aren't too shabby. Except Haxorus is another black dragon like Charizard and Rayquaza
