Azurill (Japanese: ルリリ Ruriri) is a dual-type Normal/Fairy baby Pokémon introduced in Generation III. Prior to Generation VI, it was a pure Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Marill when leveled up with high friendship, which evolves into Azumarill starting at level 18.

Azurill, along with Wailmer and Kecleon, was one of the first Generation III Pokémon revealed, in early March 2001.

Biology

Azurill is a round, blue mouse Pokémon. It has circular ears with pink insides. There are two white dots on its cheeks, and it has black eyes. Its thin, black, zigzagging tail has a large blue ball at the end.

The ball is bouncy and packed with the nutrients it needs to be able to grow. The ball can also be used as a flotation device. It can be seen bouncing and playing on this rubbery tail. The tail can also be spun around like a lasso. When the tail is thrown, the body can go as far as 33 feet (10 meters). Though Azurill is typically docile, it swings the big ball on its tail to smash into opponents bigger than itself when angered. It lives at the water's edge.

    • In addition, Azurill and Marill both have the lowest base Special Attack of all Fairy-type Pokémon.
  • With Huge Power, Azurill can reach the highest Attack stat of all baby Pokémon, capping at a maximum of 304.
  • Polka dots are known in Japan as 水玉 mizutama, literally meaning water balls. This might explain why Azurill is known as the Polka Dot Pokémon.
    • This name also reflects the way Azurill is indirectly related with Water.
  • Prior to Generation VI, because Azurill's gender ratio does not match that of its evolved forms and its evolution is not dependent on gender, being female 75% of the time while Marill and Azumarill are female-only 50% of the time, one out of three female Azurill evolves into a male Marill (depending on its personality value). Azurill is the only Pokémon to do this. From Generation VI on, Azurill retains its gender upon evolving, despite the gender ratios still differing.
  • Azurill has the lowest base stat total of all baby Pokémon.
  • Azurill is the only Pokémon which evolves through friendship whose evolved form evolves by level.
  • Azurill is the shortest Normal-type Pokémon.

Origin

Azurill appears to be a mouse combined with a beach ball or possibly a personal flotation device or lifebuoy. The idea of Azurill storing nutrients in its tail may come from the mouse-like fat-tailed dunnart; this marsupial's carrot-shaped tail stores nutrition in the form of fat for times of scarcity.

Name origin

Azurill is a combination of azure (a shade of blue) or azul (Spanish and Portuguese for blue) and rill (a small river or brook). Its name may also be derived from its evolutions, Marill and Azumarill.

Ruriri may be a corruption of 瑠璃 ruri (lapis lazuli) which is theoretically in Marill's—its evolution—name, or it may be a variation of azurite (a blue rock).
