While you may rarely find Buizel on Route 224, it typically does not spawn in the same areas that Floatzel does.

How to Get Buizel in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
The most common places to find Buizel is on Route 205 and 213. You can also frequently get Buizel in Valley Windworks. Rarely you may also find the Pokemon on Route 224. However, you’re more likely to find its evolved form, Floatzel, or Pokemon such as Roselia and Gastrodon along Route 244. You may also encounter Buizel in the Grand Underground. Buizel is found in the following areas in the Grand Underground:
- Fountainspring Cave
- Riverbank Cave
- Still-Water Cavern
Once you obtain Buizel, you can evolve it into Floatzel. It evolves into Floatzel starting at level 26. Floatzel does not evolve into any other Pokemon. You do not need additional items or tasks to evolve Buizel, and you do not need to trade the Pokemon with other players. Since Buizel has a level requirement before evolving, you will need to fight with it in wild Pokemon encounters to gain EXP.
Your Buizel can hold a Lucky Egg to level up faster. If you do not have a Lucky Egg, you can find wild Chansey’s, which have a chance of holding either a Lucky Egg or an Oval Stone. You may also search for a Lucky Egg at Acuity Lakefront in the Grand Underground.
