So I got an axew, started training it. I was just looking up to see if I should keep it or get another, and apparently it's bad to have an axew with rivalry, which mine has. So I wanted to know if it was worth keeping or not.

All of Axew's abilities are good, rivalry may not be the best ability, but it can still come in handy. For example, rivalry deals double the damage when you verse a Pokemon of the same gender.
So, this is a 50% change you have with all Pokemon - except the ones with no gender or who have a definte gender.

If your axew's male, it deals double damge to:

  • All various gendered Pokemon who have male
  • rufflet and braviary
  • gallade
  • hitmonchan, hitmonlee, hitmontop, and tyrogue
  • landorus, thundurus, and tornadus
  • latios
  • mothim
  • nidoran male (and it's evolutions)
  • sawk and tauros
  • tauros
  • volbeat

If your axew's female, it deals double damage to:

  • All various gendered Pokemon who have female
  • happiny, chansey, and blissey
  • flabebe, floette, and florges
  • cresselia
  • froslass
  • illumise
  • smoochum and jynx
  • kangaskhan
  • latias
  • petilil and lilligant
  • vullaby and mandibuzz
  • miltank
  • nidoran (female) and its evolutions
  • wormadam

For more imformation: search up male, female, or genderless Pokemon (on google)

Hopefully I helped!

It's not bad, it's just not good competitively, if you're just using it in game then it's fine but you should try for a Mold Breaker or Unnerve really.
