[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Floatzel finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Its Base Speed is tied with Starmie for the fastest amongst Water-Type Pokémon, which is only second to an Arceus holding a Splash Plate. Overall, its Speed is in a multi-way tie for 23rd Fastest in the metagame. It also has a good Attack Statistic with usable coverage in the moves that it can learn and access to a priority move of its own type. It's defenses are lacking in comparison, and getting afflicted with a Status Condition really shuts Floatzel down.
