Pokemon Legends Arceus – How To Hit Azelf With Balms?

Read this guide to learn how to hit Azelf with balms in Pokemon Legends Arceus.

Towards the end of Pokemon Legends Arceus, you will be tasked with hitting Azelf with balms. You will receive this task from either one of three legendary Pokemon you need to visit. You will find these Pokemon in hidden caves under three lakes. While the task may sound easy enough, it turns out there is more to it than meets the eye. This makes the mission rather tricky, which is why we have got just the guide for you. Here, we will show you all you need to do to hit Azelf with a balm.

How to Hit Azelf with Balms in Pokemon Legends Arceus?



In order to successfully hit Azelf with balms in Pokemon Legends Arceus, you need to keep trying to hit him over and over again. Due to Azelf’s tendency to teleport upon being hit, getting a clean shot is next to impossible.

Because of this, the real trick lies in simply attempting to throw the balm at him, and not at actually hitting him. After you miss a few times, you will receive a prompt that asks you if you wish to give up. You need to reply in the negative and keep going. Repeat the process of trying until you receive the said prompt thrice.


Upon replying in the negative for the third time, you will successfully complete this mission. Yes, that really is it. Turns out, this mission is not about actually hitting Azelf with balms at all. The mission actually is all about persistence. And while this premise may initially appear as a little cheesy, it actually sounds quite fun. Players unaware of the premise of this quest will simply quit, completely unaware of what lies ahead after a few more attempts.

So there you have it. This is all you need to know about how to hit Azelf with a balm in Pokemon Legends Arceus. As you can see, the entire quest is actually completely different once you start playing it.

And now that you know all about this quest, take a look at our Pokemon Legends Arceus Guides.
