Is There a Shiny Buizel in Pokemon GO

Yes, there is a shiny version of Buizel in Pokemon GO. To boot, it’s very easy to tell apart from the regular variant. While the normal Buizel is orange, the shiny is bright yellow, as you can see in the image above. So, you’ll always know whether you’ve encountered a special form of the adorable little otter-like Pokemon. Mind you, Buizel is not a super-useful Pokemon, all things considered. It’s not very powerful in battles, but its evolution fares a bit better (more on that in a bit). So, hunting for a shiny Buizel is entirely a matter of personal pride, in the sense that you can brag about having one. Of course, like all shiny Pokemon, the yellow otter is very rare.

So, that’s basically all there is to know about shiny Buizel in Pokemon GO. As for what it evolves into, it’s Floatzel. All you need to do is feed the Buizel fifty Candies, and you’re good to go. It doesn’t require any special evolution items or anything like that. Just your regular meat-and-potatoes evolution chain. Buizel’s maximum CP is 1,054, and the best moveset is probably a combination of Water Gun (Quick Attack) and Water Pulse (Charged Attack). As for Floatzel, its maximum CP is 2,443 (6,565 if it’s a Raid boss), and we’d say its best moveset is Waterfall as the Quick Move and Hydro Pump as the Charged Move. Again, neither of these two are the most powerful warriors in the game, but they can do in a pinch, if you’re fighting something weak to water.
