Floatzel (Japanese: フローゼル Flowsel) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Buizel starting at level 26.

Biology

Floatzel is an orange Pokémon resembling an anthropomorphic otter or weasel with longer arms than legs. It has four fingers on each hand and three toes on each foot. It's feet are small in comparison to the rest of the body. It has two pointed blue fins on its arms, two aligned, backward-swept, pointed fins on its head, and two tails. The yellow flotation device, which seems to be made of rubber or a similar substance, gives the impression of an inflatable life vest. The floatation sac goes in a kind of ring behind its head, down infront of its arms, then back behind its back above the tails. When it lays on its back, the flotation sac could also be interpreted as a sort of inflatable dinghy using its tails as a propeller and its fins as oars. It's tails can infinitely spin around like propeller blades. Its forelimbs and tails are tipped in cream, and there is an orange teardrop shape near the bottom of its cream belly. Floatzel also has a circular cream spot in the center of its head, cream eyelids and a pattern of two black triangles on the edges of its cream muzzle. It has one cream, slightly protruding, oval-shaped spot on its back if it is female and two if it is male. It has small, sharp canine teeth, the top two of which can be seen when its mouth is closed. It can use its swimming capabilities to assist in the rescues of drowning people. To help it dive, Floatzel can deflate its floatation sac, and then inflate it once again when it wishes to surface. It is a fresh water Pokemon and tends to inhabit swift-moving rivers. Some believe Floatzel is a fish-eater.

Major appearances

Floatzel made its debut in Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! (Part 1). Kellyn used his Capture Styler on a wild Floatzel so he could use it to escape from a group of Sharpedo that belonged to Hunter J's Henchmen.

Crasher Wake used a Male Floatzel in A Crasher Course in Power! during his gym battle against Ash where it battled against against Ash's Pikachu but was eventually defeated by Ash's Buizel.

Kenny's Floatzel first appeared in Last Call — First Round! during an appeal round performance during the Sinnoh Grand Festival partnered with Kenny's Empoleon. They put on a good performance but a Flash Cannon was too much leading to their loss. Kenny's Floatzel reappeared in Four Roads Diverged in a Pokémon Port! where they got advice from Jasmine but became the target of an attack by Team Rocket.

Minor appearances

Conway used a Floatzel in the second leg of the Pokémon Triathlon in One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team!.

A Floatzel made a brief appearance under the ownership of a Trainer in the Lily of the Valley Conference in An Old Family Blend!.

In A Big Stink Over Stunky, a Floatzel is first seen acting as the motor jet for Professor Rowan and his assistant (Platinum's father) as they arrived in Canalave City.

In A Skuffle with Skorupi, Crasher Wake is seen with a Floatzel, which he used to battle Platinum's Empoleon, but after a close battle, lost. A few volumes later, under Wake's command, Pearl attempted to catch one himself, but failed to do so and resorted to catching the weaker Buizel.
