For one, Axew and its evolutions don't really even look like Dragon/Fighting. For two, the dual-type doesn't really confer much. It doesn't set up a type cycle or anything like that. Dual types aren't even necessarily stronger for having two types. In fact, as far as I can tell, it's a detriment to have Fighting on there. Ordinarily, Axew would own Psychic types, but in this hack, a level 9 Abra with Psybeam will mop the floor with it. Why Abra has Psybeam when that's not even a move it can learn is beyond me, much less why it has it at such an early level.
( On that note, why does a Level 3 WILD Pineco have Protect? )
Axew is not canonically a dual-type.
Besides, there's already way too many dual-types when it comes to dragons. A pure dragon line is a blessing - and Axew's line is the only line that keeps that pure Dragon type throughout all stages, if you don't count Druddigon, since it doesn't evolve.
