Azelf (Japanese: アグノム Agnome) is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Along with Uxie and Mesprit, Azelf is a member of the lake guardians, the Sinnoh region's Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon trio. Azelf is the bringer of willpower.

Biology

Azelf is a small, gray-blue, fairy-like Pokémon. It has two tails that each have a red jewel on them. These are, presumably, two of the jewels which complement the Red Chain. Azelf has a partially cyan face with another red gem encrusted into its forehead. Azelf has a cone-shaped head with elf ear-like protrusions on each side. Its spirit can leave its body without dying, and can return to the body at will. It can control an individual's will or enter the body of an individual. Legends say that if Azelf is harmed, it can cause humans to lose all will inside of them, making them completely immobile for all eternity. It was shown in The Needs of the Three! and The Battle Finale of Legend! that it can teleport itself, as well as other Pokémon and humans. Azelf can be very cautious around people and Pokémon. However, if threatened, it will reveal its bold side.

Major appearances

Azelf (anime)

Azelf appeared in spirit form (much like Mesprit did to Dawn in Following a Maiden's Voyage!) to Ash in Pruning a Passel of Pals!.

Azelf first appeared in its physical form in The Needs of the Three!, where it was the first to be captured by J and Team Galactic. It was then controlled by the team to help fulfill its goal. In The Battle Finale of Legend!, after breaking from their control with the help of Ash's Pikachu and Staraptor, it helped in stopping Cyrus's plot to use Dialga and Palkia.

Azelf also appeared in PK21 with Uxie and Mesprit, serving Pikachu and his friends some apples.

Minor appearances

Azelf, along with its trio, made a brief appearance in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky - Beyond Time & Darkness as the protectors of the Time Gear.

In the manga

Azelf in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Azelf appeared briefly to Diamond and Pearl when they were trying to find Platinum at Lake Valor. Later, Pearl is sent to guard Azelf from Team Galactic. He was chosen because, fittingly, he is very hyper when compared to the calm Diamond or the knowledgable Platinum. Even Team Galactic's boss Cyrus made the observation, calling Pearl a being of willpower after he, Diamond and Platinum defeated Cyrus on the Spear Pillar.

Trophy Information

A Willpower Pokémon. Born from the same Egg as Uxie and Mesprit, this Pokémon maintains the balance of things in the world from the bottom of Lake Valor. Some say that anyone who injures it will become unable to perform any kind of action after seven days. It wields many strong attacks, like the devastating Last Resort. It can also protect itself from sleep attacks with Uproar.

Trivia

  • Azelf, Uxie, and Mesprit are the lightest of all legendary Pokémon and Psychic-type Pokémon.

Origin

Azelf appears to be a pixie or a fairy, although its Japanese name suggests that it's a gnome. Azelf and the rest of the trio could possibly have originated from the Imperial Regalia of Japan, which are also called the Three Sacred Treasures. Azelf would be the Kusanagi, which embodies valor.

Name origin

Azelf may be a combination of azure or us and elf. It could also be a corruption of self.

Agnome may be a combination of agnosticism (gnosis; Greek for knowledge) and gnome.
