Buizel (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Buizel are mainly orange weasel otters. The lower half of their heads, spot-marks above the eyes, underbelly and flotation sac around their neck are all cream-colored. These pokemon have two slender tails also tipped with cream fur that they use as propellers to swim through rivers and streams. They have two blue fins near the ends of their hands. On their cheeks, they also have black markings that resemble crude whiskers.
Some specimens have a lighter cream color on the cream parts and gold yellow where the orange would be. The flotation sacs are silver.
These pokemon were discovered in the lakes of the Sinnoh region. They are known to loiter in some of the waters that abut the marshes near Pastoria. When in the safari, one may encounter them alongside wooper and other river pokemon. They form packs amongst themselves and floatzel, which is their evolved form. When the great rift of time and space was torn asunder by evil power-hungry humans, many buizel and floatzel lost their homes and became hostile to humans. As the land began to heal, they came to rekindle their friendships.
Buizel are pack hunters by nature and are known to suffer separation anxiety if separated from the pack. Despite looking very cutesy, they are fierce and fast in the waters, hunting fish pokemon like remoraid. Within their packs may be many floatzel. The largest and strongest floatzel is usually the leader who commands the other floatzel. In turn, the other floatzel command and train buizel. Buizel are known to go through tough regimens to train and try to evolve into floatzel. They are sometimes thrown down a waterfall and have to propel themselves back up with their tails. This training gets especially hard when it is magikarp breeding season, as the fish fill up the streams and flop up the falls as well.
