In the games


Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky

Team AWD is known as a band of thieves with a bad reputation. Their boss is Weavile, known as 'Lady Weavile' by Arbok and Drapion, who hold her in high respect.

In the main story, they make various appearances around Treasure Town and once inside of Wigglytuff's Guild looking for clues about a place called Zero Isle, seeking to claim its rumored treasures.

After the player and partner graduate from the guild, Team AWD reappears outside it and claim to have found Zero Isle, introducing the exploration team to its four dungeons: Zero Isle North, Zero Isle East, Zero Isle South, and Zero Isle West. In Explorers of Sky, the dungeon Zero Isle Center is also present but not unlocked at this point. They return to Treasure Town after the player's team explores Aegis Cave, having failed to clear the dungeons.

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

Team AWD are also shown in the Team Charm Special Episode, Here Comes Team Charm!, being the major antagonists of the story. They are searching for treasure in Limestone Cavern, and end up in conflict with Team Charm after the female team hears from a passing Sentret of their misdeeds. The Sentret turned out to be a Ditto who was protecting a Time Gear at the dungeon's end and was trying to lead the two teams into taking each other out. Both teams leave peacefully when the truth is revealed, with even the notorious thieves of Team AWD flatly refusing to take a Time Gear.

All three members appear as recruitable characters. They all connect with the player if Weavile is defeated in her challenge request.
