Buizel is an orange Pokémon that looks like a cross between a weasel and a sea otter. It has two blue fins on its limbs and a yellow collar around its neck. Buizel has two black parallel markings on its cheekbones and a cream-colored patch over each eye. The bottom of its face and tummy, as well as the tips of its two tails, are cream-colored. A male Buizel has two cream-colored patches on his back, whilst a female only has one. Buizel’s tail has been characterized as a steamboat screw.

Buizel’s yellow collar is a flotation sac that inhales to expand. Buizel may hold its head above water in this manner to monitor prey movement or explore its environment. It, on the other hand, deflates this sac in order to dive. Its tails may spin to function as a propeller or slice through obstructions like seaweed, and it can fly using its spinning tail in the anime.

Evolution family

Buizel is part of a two-member family.
