Azelf Raid Guide

Posted in

Azelf is a member of the Lake Trio along with Uxie and Mesprit, a legendary trio introduced in Generation 4, and has a Raid Boss CP of 44972.

Azelf has a stat composition of 270 Attack, 151 Defense, and 181 Stamina leading to a Max CP of 3210. What this means is that in comparison to the middle-of-the-road Mespirit and the defense-oriented Uxie, Azelf will be the easiest of the three to challenge and require the least amount of players.

It can be duoed fairly easily, but otherwise, we would suggest you take on Azelf in groups of 3-6, for high-level players, or 7-20, for lower-level players.

Obtainable CP Values Raid icon

It is boosted by Windy weather, and leads to its capture CPs being in the following ranges:

  • 1752 – 1834 CP for a regular Level 20 encounter
  • 2190 – 2293 CP for a Windy weather-boosted encounter (Level 25)

Azelf is a Psychic type, meaning it is weak to Dark, Bug, and Ghost types, while resisting Fighting and Psychic types.
