Team AWD (Japanese: チームMAD Team MAD) is an exploration team in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. The team consists of Arbok, Weavile, and Drapion. They also appear on the cover of Explorers of Time.



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 appearances around Treasure Town and once inside of Wigglytuff's Guild looking for clues about the Zero Isle.

After the Guild Graduation the Team AWD reappears in Treasure Town, claiming to have found the Zero Isle, and introduces the exploration team to four new dungeons: Zero Isle North, Zero Isle South, Zero Isle East, and Zero Isle West. In Explorers of Sky, the dungeon Zero Isle Center is also added. However, the team failed to conquer the islands.

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 fighting Team Charm, after the female team hears from a passing Sentret how evil they are. The Sentret turned out to be a Ditto who was protecting a Time Gear and was trying to get the two teams to leave. Both teams leave when no treasure is found, leaving the Time Gear and its guardian alone.

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