This article is about the character of the day. For the Key Item, see Azure Flute.

Azure (Japanese: アツキ Atsuki) is a character of the day who appeared in Beating the Bustle and Hustle!. He is part of a criminal duo with Crimson.


Azure and Crimson both became contestants on the television program Sinnoh Pokémon Hustle, but this edition was fabricated by Team Rocket with the hopes of stealing Pokémon and recruiting new Team Rocket agents. Officer Jenny had been tracking the two for quite some time and disguised herself in order to follow them.

Azure showed off his acrobatic skills as he and Crimson were some of the few people able to clear the Pokémon Hustle obstacles. He and Crimson eventually came across the box that Team Rocket had been keeping all of the Poké Balls that they took from the other contestants, and decided to help themselves to it. Team Rocket was thrilled with Azure and Crimson's performances on the course, and viewed their heist as potential, so they helped them escape from Officer Jenny.

Azure and Crimson, however, were determined to remain a duo, and turned on the trio. Azure used his Drowzee in a Tag Battle with Crimson and her Zangoose. Both easily defeated Meowth and Jessie's Yanmega, but eventually fell to Officer Jenny's Growlithe. Both Azure and Crimson were arrested by Officer Jenny and taken to jail.


Azure's only known Pokémon is a Drowzee, which proved to be quite powerful. It easily sent Team Rocket blasting off, and though it was able to hold its own against Officer Jenny and her Growlithe, it was eventually defeated.

Drowzee's known moves are Psybeam, Zen Headbutt, Shadow Ball, and Drain Punch.
