In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, players can catch the Water-type Pokémon Floatzel. This Pokémon evolves from Buizel at level 26. While it is easy to overlook this Pokémon, it has a decently strong attack stat and can really pack a punch in the early game.

Because Floatzel is a Water-type Pokémon, most of its powerful moves are also Water-type. This is because of S.T.A.B. (Same Type Attack Bonus). Pokémon that use moves that match their typing will receive increased damage output with those moves. Floatzel’s best moves are Hydro Pump, Aqua Tail, Crunch, and Swift.

Floatzel can learn Hydro Pump at level 43 (mastered at level 54), Aqua Tail at level 34 (mastered at level 45), Crunch at level 30 (mastered at level 41), Swift at level 11 (mastered at level 20).

How to use Floatzel best in battle

Floatzel is a solely Water-type Pokémon, so it is easy to memorize its weaknesses and resistances. This information can come in handy during battle. Water-type Pokémon are vulnerable to Electric and Grass-type moves. Water-type moves are super effective against Rock, Ground, and Fire-type Pokémon.
