Buizel (Japanese: ブイゼル Buiseru) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV. It is classified as the sea weasel Pokémon.

Buizel floats in water by inflating the flotation ring around its neck and deflates the ring when it needs to dive. It swims by corkscrewing its two tails, which helps keep it on top of the water.

In the Anime

Buizel made its appearance when it is found training by itself in the wild next to a waterfall. Ash had attempted to catch it, but he failed. However, Dawn caught it the second time.

Buizel is not fond of Dawn at first, and it refused to obey Dawn's command and chose to use its move on its own.

When Dawn is training with her Buizel and Ash's Aipom, Buizel is more interested by the way Ash trains his Pokémon and pauses for a second to look at Ash's battlefield when Dawn is training it. At the same time, Ash's Aipom is interested in Dawn's training. Persuaded by Zoey, Ash and Dawn decided to trade off Buizel and Aipom.

When Ash is battling with the Veilstone Gym Leader, Maylene, he uses Buizel to battle with Maylene's Lucario. The battle was extraordinary, just then Buizel learns a new move called Water Pulse. When Lucario attacks with Aura Sphere, it hits Buizel's Water Pulse and it blasts off the roof of the battlefield, causing it to rain. Because Buizel have a special ability "Swift Swim", it moves swiftly to attack Lucario. In the end, both Buizel and Lucario fall and the battle was considered a draw. Ash earns his Cobble Badge.


Buizel evolves into Floatzel at level 26.
