Game Info

Pokémon Platinum

In Platinum, Azelf, Mesprit, and Uxie help guide you through the distortion world where you can capture Giratina.

Explorers of Time and Darkness

In Pokémon Explorers Of Time/Darkness, Azelf plays the part as the guardian of a Time Gear and to get to him and the time gear, you must turn the crystals to the color of Willpower, which apparently is blue, thus explaining the color on Azelf's head. After the player arrives Azelf's chamber, he appears to be injured because of Grovyle defeated him in the fight. Grovyle was about to get the Time Gear but Azelf's eyes shines yellow and activates the fail-safe trap, his secret ability, so Grovyle can't dive underwater and get the Time Gear. He starts fighting the player, after the fight, Azelf is down and Grovyle knocks the player and his/her partner in one blow but Dusknoir stops him and let him escape using his orb but Grovyle escapes too. So, the guild members pick the player, partner and Azelf to the guild.

Pokémon Black 2/White 2

After the player defeats the Champion, the player can head to Route 20, and surf to the Cave of Being. Inside, Professor Juniper will greet you, and soon Azelf, Uxie and Mesprit will appear. They will soon fly off. Azelf can be found on Route 23, to the left of the entrance to Victory Road.

Appearances

Anime

Azelf in the anime as a bodiless spirit.

In the anime, Azelf has only appeared once so far in Pokémon: Battle Dimension. Ash is taking a walk on the night of the Wallace because he can't sleep. He walks out to Lake Valor and suddenly there is a powerful blast of wind. He looks at the sky which is perfectly cloudless and hears an enormous sound. He looks at the river where there are ripples in the water. A small drops of water spray out and Ash sees a bright light which is in the shape of Azelf. Azelf goes out close to Ash, makes a soft cooing-like sound backs into the center of the lake where a huge waterfall spurts out. When it ends, Azelf is gone, and Ash is rather puzzled. Then the cooing noise fades off in an echo, ripples appear in the water once more, and a large gust of wind.

Trivia

  • Just like the other members of the lake trio, Azelf's second half of its name sounds like something magical. Azelf's last part of its name sounds like elf.
  • Despite being genderless in the main games, it is referred to as a male in PMD2.
  • Curiously, when Azelf is injured in PMD2, he appears to be covering his left eye using his left hand while shuddering if you look closely.

Origin

Azelf is based on a fairy or elf. It may also be based on Kusanagi, a sword that is one of the Three Sacred Treasures of Japan and a symbol of valor as well as the superego (the moral part of the Freudian psyche).

Etymology

Azelf is a combination of "us," "azure," "elf," and "ourself."

Agunomu is a portmanteau of "agnostic" (someone who isn't sure whether or not any gods exist) and "gnome."
