Ash's Buizel (Japanese: サトシのブイゼル Satoshi's Buoysel) is the third Pokémon captured by Dawn in Buizel Your Way Out of This, and was traded to Ash Ketchum in Throwing the Track Switch. His voice actor in both Japanese and English is 古島清孝 Kiyotaka Furushima.


With Dawn

Buizel has a vastly different type of personality than Dawn's other Pokémon. He purposely looks for battles with Trainers' Pokémon and loves to show off his amazing strength. He first took out Dawn's Piplup, then Zoey's Glameow, and finally Ash's Pikachu by using his incredible speed and moves like Aqua Jet. He showed bitterness towards humans, but gained respect for Dawn after she saved him from a nasty fall. Afterwards, Buizel found her worthy enough for a second battle, where she was able to capture him.

Buizel's first appearance

Since then, though, he still gets along poorly with most other Pokémon. In particular, he seems to have a rivalry developing with one of the other strength-oriented Pokémon on the cast, Brock's Croagunk. However, they may have started to get along with each other as they are with each other in Sleight of Sand! while the others play.

With Ash

In Throwing the Track Switch, Dawn began the Contest training for the Solaceon Town Contest; however, Buizel seemed to be more interested in Ash's battle training and thus couldn't set its mind on Dawn's training. Meanwhile, Ash's Aipom appeared to have a similar problem in Ash's training because it tended to be more interested in Dawn's Contest training. Then Zoey proposed that Ash and Dawn trade them. After some soul-searching, the trainers agreed, and the trade took place.

In The Keystone Pops!, during a battle between Ash and Dawn, Buizel's SonicBoom was deflected by Aipom, hitting a stone tower and freeing a Spiritomb.

In A Triple Fighting Chance!, he fought Maylene's Lucario in a Gym Battle, resulting in a Double KO and a tied match. During the battle, Buizel learned Water Pulse. Buizel's version is unique, as Buizel's Water Pulse retains its spherical shape, which is presumably inspired by the Aura Sphere of Maylene's Lucario. In addition, the ability Swift Swim activated in the battle.

In a Staging a Heroes Welcome and Pruning a Passel of Pals! , Buizel participated in his first contest-style competition, as Ash's entry for the Wallace Cup. Buizel succeeded in the appeal rounds due to a dazzling combination of Aqua Jet, Water Gun, SonicBoom, and the utilization of his inflatable tube around its neck, but lost in the second round of battles. He perfected an Ice Beam and Aqua Jet combination that Dawn had tried to teach him in an earlier episode.

In A Crasher Course in Power! Buizel was training for Ash's Gym Battle and was accidentally shocked by Pikachu. Buizel angrily jumped at Pikachu but was restrained by Turtwig. Buizel continued to hold a grudge against Pikachu during the battle. Buizel defeated Crasher Wake's Quagsire using its "Ice Jet" combination and stayed on to battle Floatzel. Floatzel managed to use most of Buizel's attacks against him and eventually confused him with his own Water Pulse. Buizel was recalled and Pikachu was sent out. Buizel eventually shook off the confusion to see Pikachu valiantly fighting a losing battle against Floatzel. Floatzel eventually partially froze Pikachu's back and Buizel wanted to get back in the fight. As Pikachu and Buizel tagged out, they exchanged a high five and Buizel broke the ice on Pikachu's back with a Water Gun. Buizel went on to defeat Floatzel by using a Water Pulse at close range, defeating Floatzel and earning Ash his Fen Badge.

Buizel defeated Fantina's Gengar in DP102, but lost to her Drifblim.

In DP108, he was used in battle against Byron's Steelix, but was quickly defeated.

Moves used

Moves improvised

"Ice Aqua Jet" (a combination of Buizel's Aqua Jet and another Pokémon's Ice Beam). It was first attempted in A Stand-Up Sit Down! and successfully used in Pruning a Passel of Pals! and in A Crasher Course in Power! against Crasher Wake's Quagsire.
