It depends what you're aiming at, on a theorycrafting perspective Hydreigon is better but thats situational anyway.

Depends. Hydreigon is a special attacker, while Haxorus is physical. Both have they're up and downs, but Haxorus tends to be more reliable with access to Dragon Dance.

what you really want is a physical attacker, because honestly, how many special attacks are there in hydreigon's moveset?
haxorus has access to swords dance and dragon dance, which haxorus lacks, and despit being less special defensive, a special attacker usually doesn't have the defences to stand up to one blow from this pokemon, with a few exceptions such as magnezone, and with a speed boost from dragon dance most can be outrun, while hydreigon lacks the attacks to make use of it's special attack, and despite being more defensive and having higher hp, is generally more vulnerable as it is weaker against more types.
hope this helped^_^

The thing is, Hydreigon is overall an improved version of MixMence, considering you use a Choice Scarf.
Haxorus gets trolled by Hydreigon cuz of that 1 point of speed that seperates them meaning that Haxorus must have a Dragon Dance up to outspeed the Hydreigon otherwise.... tough luck. Also Haxorus misses something that his dragon brethren all have, which is access to fire (ok, maybe not Kingdra, but he's something else). Without Fire Blast, Fire Punch or even Fire Fang, Haxorus gets walled by Skarmory with ease, and is gonna take more effort in killing Ferrothorn (only to name 2 of the most common walls around)

Of course, if you aren't interested in competitive battling, forget everything i just said.

hydreigon doesnt take fighting type moves very well, there seem to be alot of fighting pokemon in white..(or so i found grinding with Audinos in the shaking grass!)

Haxorus is generally a good all round pkmn and looks better imo

I would say hydreigon is the better pokemon. Because it can learn many more moves than Haxorus. Also, hydreigon's stats are better - they are all round great while haxorus lacks in all round stats, although its attack is better than its competitor. Hydreigon lacks swords dance/dragon dance which are great for Haxorus. Also,Zweilous evolves at lvl 64!!! So, you might only have a zweilous for the pokemon league. As soon as axew is available, you should get it, and keep it in ure party until the pokemon league, and end-game. But when the game is finished, and you want a different dragon type, i would recommend Hydreigon for sure.

Haxorus has amazing attack but hydreigon's movepool is way better.

AH!!! this is a tough choise everyone has to make but when you have added all their stats HAXORUS is more higher than HYDREIGON but this is only because HAXORUS has some RUTHLESS stats but some HORRIBLE stats while HYDREIGON on the other hand is more all-rounded but to me HAXORUS was looking better.

Actually Hydreigon's base stat total is higher than Haxorus's

I prefer Hydreigon, partly due to the fact that it's type combination is interesting. It also gets STAB from two pretty beast types, has a large move pool, isn't 4x Super Effected by Ice, and looks like a badass mother*bleep*er.It can also function reasonably well as a mixed attacker, due to a decent attack stat. It's 4 weaknesses are easily balanced by its 6 resistances and 2 immunities.
