Shiny Buizel

Shiny Buizel is a striking gold color instead of orange, and the yellow flotation sac around its neck turns white. Given Niantic’s apparent fondness for golden shinies, we sure hope that this lovely shiny will be available at some point!

Pokédex Entries and Facts

Buizel is known as the “Sea Weasel” Pokémon.

  • Its design is based off of sea otters and weasels, as implied by its name.
  • Its Pearl Pokédex entry states that “It swims by rotating its two tails like a screw. When it dives, its flotation sac collapses.” In the anime, it was even shown to fly like a helicopter using its tails!
