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

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.

Azelf's spirit can leave its body without dying and can return to the body at will. It sleeps at the bottom of a lake to preserve the balance of the world. 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. Azelf has been referred to as the "The Being of Willpower" due to its role in giving humans the determination to face challenges in life. Azelf and the other lake guardians have the power to calm Dialga/Palkia should the deity be enraged.

Azelf physically debuted in The Needs of the Three!, where it was the first to be captured by J and Team Galactic. It was then controlled by Team Galactic 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.

In the Diamond & Pearl chapter, Azelf was to be captured as part of Team Galactic's plans. Commander Saturn led the operation to capture Azelf, and succeeded; despite the resistance of Pearl. Azelf connected with Pearl the most, as he had great determination; Pearl had been at the center of Lake Valor and saw Azelf on his last visit there. It first appeared in Tackling Tangrowth.

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!

Along with Uxie and Mesprit, Azelf was captured by Team Galactic to create the Red Chain so that they can control the legendary Dialga. It was eventually freed and helped stop Dialga by breaking the Red Chain. It first appeared in The Legendary Pokémon, Captured.

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.

Azelf appears as a Spirit alongside Mesprit and Uxie.

Trivia

Origin

Azelf seems to be based on a pixie or a fairy, although its Japanese name suggests that it is 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.
