I'm hoping he starts to act less childish and show some maturation. That's about it, because in reality, he won't get any good battles and doesn't need powerful moves.

Friend Safari is Dragons (Noibat, Sliggoo,Fraxure)
Devoted Pearlshipper and as such I have released Chapter 4 of my new fic :
I hope he evolves into Fraxure in Iris' last episode. She'll probably become the Opelucid gym leader after that.
I could swear that's it dream but the anime as usual...
"My underrated tastes are no fun at all. However that's how I am. Peace."
It's probably never going to evolve. Piplup never evolve, Pikachu never evolved. Though Iris should evolve Axew, I like Axew as annoying as that one can get but I just want it to evolve even though it probably won't. Oh well. Well Cilin's pansage didnt evolve in the anime (I think at least!) Maybe Axew would be like that?

One word to describe it: Evolves
I hope he doesn't evolve yet, maybe later when/if Iris makes a cameo in the next region she'll let him out and he will be a Fraxure.
I want it too evolve into Fraxure, or into Haxorus... that or i want Axew to become the god of all Axew.
It's wrong that the latter is more likely to happen.
The reason why Axew learnt Outrage in this episode is more complex than that. To understand all of this, you should go to a Trainer Yusuf post in Bulbagarden in the thread "the writers do enough with Iris" in the page 25 (it isn't exact). (it's posted just before Cynthia, he thought that Iris wouldn'0t cartch Dragonite).
The main reason why Axew learnt Outrage is because an animator can't contribute the show anymore, that episode would be the last episode that he made and apparently the animator want to do something special before he leaves the show.
If you see, the episode 42 of Best Wishes (Club Battle/Don Battle Part 4) was animated by Takagawa. THis animator is considered the best animator of the Pokemon anime. But he only appears in very few episodes. He did 4 episodes in early BW, with the last of them being that episode. This is apparently the last episode done by him in Best Wishes. Probably because she want to show his animation, he did the animation of Axew attak to make it like a departure.
Because that, the episode was made that way. Take note that starting here, we are going into the episodes produced after the earthquake, who has less money to do them and etc. and an animator with Tamagawa can't eb uin the show because it's so expensive compared to other cheaper animators that use stocked footage.
The attack, to show off, can't be stocked in future episodes. And remember, that if a attack can't be stocked in Best Wishes, you won't be saying the attack many times. That attack can't be used.
Because the animation of Outrage is so expensive, the writers don't want to showcase it. And because it, Axew is only using Dragon Rage except two times that he uses Giga Impact. Cheaper attacks that can be stocked.
Note: although many of us dislike it, if yopu want the attack to play again and again, you have to use the same animation again, again, again, again, again, again.
I think one of the last few episodes Axew will evolve, simultaneously with Scraggy. Then later on when Iris has a cameo it will be revealed to have become a Haxorus.
WHO WILL BE NEXT?
I've given up on wanting Axew to evolve. It would seem a bit random if it were to do that now since it hasn't really been doing anything in a while. If it does than good, if not than I really don't care.
My ideal battle ever!
For it to evolve. It wants to evolve and it is also Iris's task
BIG Marvel fan(Especially of Spider-Man) and proud of it.
What do you hope happens with Ax-hue before the series ends?
Nothing. If it has been this long, at almost 90% of this saga finished, and his dream from episode 6 ignored and forgotten, then leave him unevolved.
I only want him to have an episode focused on his friendship with Scraggy.
That's all. I lost hope in Axew's fate and I can't say I want him to mature and grow up since Axew has been created that way and it would be a big change if that was happening. I like how Axew looks ridiculous and how people hate his way to act, but I do want him to have better skills and potential in battle. The evolution could end that problem, but that is over the unprobable. If Axew isn't evolving by the end of the Best Wishes! saga, then it will remain the cute, marketable and money-maker Pokémon he use to be and I don't have much problem with this. He will be gone by then and we'll be on another journey.
