AZ (Japanese: AZ AZ) is the former King of Kalos and the creator of the Ultimate Weapon. Currently, he is a forever traveling Trainer.


AZ was born thousands of years ago in Kalos, a son of royalty. After the death of his parents, he became the King of Kalos. Many years past, when a war broke out, in which the whole region was plagued with war, crime and death. Within this war, was his beloved Pokémon - a Floette. Guilt ridden and filled with unspeakable grief, he built a giant device to restore its life. He succeeded - but he was unable to overcome his despair at the world and transformed the device into a nuclear weapon. He detonated it, which ended the war. It was soon discovered that the weapon was powered by the life energy of other Pokémon, which resulted in his beloved Floette turning his back on him and left him.

In the years that past, AZ realized the radiation from the machine left him immortal - left to roam the world unable to die or age. Because of this, AZ left Kalos and traveled the world, watching it grow for thousands of years.
