* UselessUsefulSpell: One of their ability, Cute Charm, has a 30% chance of inflicting Attract on a Pokémon that hits it with direct attack. Except this ability is very situational since it requires both an opposite gender ''and'' to be a direct attack, and any strong attack of that kind [[GlassCannon will knock it out very quickly]]. Their other abilities far outclass Cute Charm anyway.

* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Compared to most other Dragons, Haxorus has awful Special Attack and it doesn't have a very good support moveset outside the universal moves most Pokémon learn can like. Thus, the only thing it's really any good at is using the "Dance" StatusBuff of your choice, then unleashing powered-up physical attacks on the opponent. It's a simple strategy, but with Haxorus's monstrous Attack, backed up by Dragon Dance or Swords Dance and a wide movepool, it works very well for it.



* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Bouffalant has a surprisingly poor movepool compared to most Normal-types. However, Head Charge is so powerful (especially when boosted by Reckless) that Bouffalant needs only Head Charge and a few other moves to handle Pokémon that resist Normal in order to bash its way through the competition.



* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Landorus has very few moves to abuse with his Hidden Ability, Sheer Force, but he's the second fastest owner of the ability[[labelnote:*]]The actual fastest user is Tauros, who lacks Landorus' raw power.[[/labelnote]] and the options he does have are attacks like [[DishingOutDirt Earth Power]] and [[KiAttacks Focus Blast]], which are already very powerful even before Sheer Force kicks in.

* LightEmUp: Hydreigon can learn Flash Cannon, which helps it somewhat with its Fairy-type.
* MagikarpPower: Not only is Deino required to reach level ''50'' before it can evolve into a Zweilous, but Zweilous doesn't evolve into Hydreigon until level ''64''. Even worse, Deino and Zweilous have MasterOfNone stats, a shallow movepool, and a rather unfortunate ability in Hustle, which boosts their Attack at the cost of a hefty accuracy penalty, making them whiff their attacks all the time.

* BadassAdorable: Reuniclus is incredibly soft and adorable yet it hits as hard as ''Hydreigon''.

to:

* BadassAdorable: Duosion and Reuniclus is are incredibly soft and adorable yet it hits as hard as ''Hydreigon''. their special attack are very high.



* BroughtDownToBadass: As of Generation VI, the Fairy-type has given Hydreigon a 4x weakness, and many such Fairy-types resist its STAB attacks. It's still very dangerous though and can demolish any non-Fairy it comes across -- and, if it does have to fight a Fairy type, it can learn some Steel and Poison moves to put it in its place.



* DarkIsNotEvil: Carlita's Hydreigon, in contrast to [[SmugSnake Ghetsis']] more [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard (in)famous]] specimen. In ''Black 2 and White 2,'' the champion, Iris, also has one, as does Lance from the Kanto/Johto games. ''VideoGame/PokemonConquest'' has it a signature Pokémon of UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga, who is the game's antagonist [[spoiler:but turns out to be an AntiHero]]. [[spoiler:In ''Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity'', Hydreigon is GoodAllAlong, [[BigDamnHeroes saves the player's party]], and is arguably one of the most heroic characters in the game!]]
** Come Gen 6 and Pokémon-Amie, and Hydreigon proves to be one of if not the most affectionate Pokémon in the game.
* DegradedBoss: From being the FinalBoss of ''Black and White'' to just a simple boss in ''Black and White 2''? Yeah, poor Hydreigon was hit hard. However, it's still a ClimaxBoss, so it's somewhat redeemed.

* TheDreaded: Hydreigon, as one of the most ferocious and intimidating {{Mons}} in the series. It's a three headed dragon based on the legendary Yamata no Orochi of Japanese myth, it has an incredibly versatile movepool and the stats to use it, and it's famous for being a psychotic and destructive OmnicidalManiac. Even after the introduction of Fairy-types gave it a nasty 4x weakness, Hydreigon is very capable.

* LightEmUp: Hydreigon can learn Flash Cannon, which helps it somewhat with its Fairy problem.

* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Joltik is the result of what happens when you design a spider that looks like a hamster. Galvantula, despite being somewhat more accurate, still looks like a candy coloured plush toy.

* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Joltik is the result of what happens when you design a spider that looks like a hamster. Galvantula, despite being somewhat more accurate, still looks like a candy coloured plush toy. May be justified actually for Galvantula, as its at least partly based on jumping spiders, many of which are notably cute and "plush" as spiders go.


Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: The line learning Bug Buzz may seem odd at first as the move is mostly associated with Bug types that have wings. However the flavor text for Bug Buzz itself only describes it as a vibration, and a number of real jumping spiders can produce vibrations for communication by drumming on surfaces. Likewise the Compoundeyes ability is likely a reference to how jumping spiders have the best vision of all spiders.

* SingleSpecimenSpecies: Outside of the myths describing it, the three's original state as one dragon Pokémon is never seen, heard, or described anyhere else. Naturally, as the result of said Pokémon splitting into three beings, the trio counts as one too.

* WingsDoNothing: Reshiram flaps its arms while flying, but Zekrom does not. Kyurem's wings, meanwhile, are completely frozen over and can't move... but if they unfreeze, they can absorb Reshiram/Zekrom into Kyurem's body.
