Azure and his partner Crimson pretended to be participants of the fake Pokémon Hustle event that was created by Team Rocket. Team Rocket's plan was to steal the Poké Balls but they were stolen by Azure and Crimson before they could complete their plan. Team Rocket eventually found out that the Poké Balls were stolen but Officer Jenny was already following Azure and Crimson undercover when she attempted to capture them. Jessie, James and Meowth thought Azure and Crimson were members of Team Rocket as well and helped them with their escape. After Azure and Crimson told them they had never even heard of Team Rocket, Jessie, James and Meowth got mad at them and tried to recover the Poké Balls. Azure and Crimson were later captured and arrested by Officer Jenny with the help of Ash and his friends.
Azure's Drowzee participated in the fake Pokémon Hustle event that Team Rocket put on. After stealing the Poké Balls, Drowzee was sent out to protect Azure from Meowth who attempted to recover the 'stolen' Pokémon. Zangoose's X-Scissor quickly defeated Meowth but stalled Crimson and Azure long enough for Officer Jenny and Ash to intercept them. Officer Jenny Growlithe was easily able to defeat Azure's Drowzee.
