|Debut:||DP034: Buizel Your Way Out of This!|
|Caught where:||Around Route 205|
|Current location:||At Professor Oak's Laboratory|
|Traded for:||Ash's Aipom|
|Traded In:||Throwing the Track Switch!|
Ash's Buizel was caught by Dawn but was traded to Ash because he preferred battles over contests.
Buizel gained a reputation for being a very powerful Pokemon and proved capable of defeating Dawn's Piplup, Zoey's Glameow and Ash's Pikachu. However, because he focused on strength, Buizel was unprepared for contest moves and Dawn managed to capture him.
While Ash and Dawn where preparing for their gym and contest battles, Buizel was showing more interest in what Ash was doing, than the contest, while Aipom was doing the same with Dawn's training. Ash and Dawn traded Aipom and Buizel.
In A Triple Fighting Chance!, Buizel battled Maylene's Lucario and learned Water Pulse. After blowing a hole in the ceiling when his Water Pulse collided with Lucario's Aura Sphere, it started raining and Buizel's Swift Swim was activated. The battle ended in a draw. Later, Buizel competed in the Wallace Cup losing to Kyle's Lanturn in the top 8.
In A Crasher Course in Power!, Buizel was used in the Pastoria Gym, beating Crasher Wake's two Pokémon, Quagsire and Floatzel. Buizel didn't battle again until Shield with a Twist!, where he defeated Fantina's Gengar and lost to Drifblim. In Dealing with Defensive Types!, Buizel battled Byron's Steelix but despite type advantage, was defeated by Steelix's Iron Tail.
Ash used Buizel against Paul's Gastrodon and won with Ice Punch. He also battled Paul's Drapion who was attacked with a powerful Pin Missile but Buizel was able to do use Water Gun Counter Shield and dodged Cross Poison. While in the air, Buizel used SonicBoom but Drapion blocked it and ensnared Buizel with its tail claw. Buizel broke free by inflating his flotation sac and then blasting Drapion with Water Gun but Drapion launched Toxic Spikes while Buizel was still in the air. As soon as he landed Buizel was poisoned by Toxic Spikes and Drapion finished him with Pin Missile.
