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? )

    Most importantly, 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.
    Without Physical/Special split, the second typing was necessary, as Haxorus needed a STAB attack that used his physical Attack stat. But even with the split, I think it doesn't make it worse. Yes, you can't use it against Psychic-types, but Dragon Dance turns it now into a fearsome sweeper, with incredible coverage with its two STAB moves (rounded by Earthquake). I have a lv 83-84 Haxorus in this hack, and I'm telling you, it is amazing.

    Also, I don't understand your complaint about Pineco, because Protect is a move that Pineco has at level 1 in the original games, that isn't something of this hack. And about Psybeam, maybe it should be Confusion, but I see it fine...
