Azelf, the Willpower Pokémon, is one of the three legendary Lake Guardians found in the Hisui region. Much like the other lake guardians, Azelf is a Psychic-type. This Pokémon can be encountered during the storyline of Pokémon Legends: Arceus at Lake Valor.

About Azelf

Similarly to other legendary Pokémon, Azelf will attack the player when nearby. Since Azelf is in a confined location, dodging its attacks and working to stun it is the best strategy. Once stunned, the player can either toss a Pokeball at it or engage it in battle. Unlike previous games in the series, accidentally defeating this Pokémon will allow you to try and capture it again. You must capture Azelf to progress in the story.

Being a Psychic type, Azelf is weak against Ghost, Dark and Bug-type attacks only. It has resistance against Fighting and Psychic-type attacks.

Plate of the Lakes Mission

Following your completion of the main story, the player will be tasked with capturing the three Lake Guardians as a part of the Plate of the Lakes mission. Azelf can be found in the cave at Lake Valor in the Crimson Mirelands, the same location the player visited when working through the earlier story missions.

Pokedex Entry

The Pokedex entry for Azelf will require the player to complete a handful of research tasks. These tasks include seeing Azelf use Calm Mind and Mystical Power, along with using strong-style and agile-style moves. The easiest task to complete is capturing the Pokémon.
