I've used Floatzel quite a lot recently, and while it is rather frail, it makes up for this in its diverse movepool, great Attack and fantastic Speed stats. Bulk Up + Baton Pass is a fantastic strategy if you know what you're doing, as it allows Floatzel to support its team as well as be a late game sweeper if need be, as its 115 base Speed stat and 105 Attack stat boosted by Bulk Up can put a dent in just about anything. I personally don't use Floatzel as a Baton Passer, however, as I usually always have need for Taunt in its sets, as seemingly everyone playing NU thinks that Floatzel is good set up bait. Taunt shuts down walls with weaker attacks, allowing Floatzel to either Bulk Up, Switch an item onto the opponent (Flame Orb is my item of choice) or just simply switch out without having much to worry about. Because of Floatzel's amazing speed, it's able to hit nearly every major threat in the tier before they can hit Floatzel back. Here's a few of the calcs to demonstrate how hard Floatzel can really hit some of the more prominent attackers in the tier, without Bulk Up and with a Jolly Nature: 252 Atk Floatzel Crunch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Jynx: 334-394 (123.24 - 145.38%) -- guaranteed OHKO 252 Atk Floatzel Waterfall vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Primeape: 169-201 (62.36 - 74.16%) -- guaranteed 2HKO 252 Atk Floatzel Waterfall vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Sawk: 144-169 (49.48 - 58.07%) -- 98.44% chance to 2HKO 252 Atk Floatzel Waterfall vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Scolipede: 126-148 (48.09 - 56.48%) -- 89.06% chance to 2HKO After Stealth Rocks or a single layer of spikes, all of these are 2HKO's or better, meaning that you if you make the mistake of switching in on Floatzel, you'd better be ready to take a massive hit. Of course, these are all mon's that you wouldn't really switch into a hit, but Floatzel wasn't really meant to be a wallbreaker in any case. I say Floatzel should be allowed in B-Rank. And if that means letting Simipour in there as well, then I suppose I should say I've also had good experiences with her as well. I'm not much of a "pro" metagame player to be honest, and some of you might not really agree with what I'm saying, and that's fine. But after some trial and error, and a lot of Floatzel usage, I've found that he's a fantastic Pokemon and almost always pulls his weight, as long as his teammates are up to snuff and you're using the right set. I'd love some feedback on the points I'm making so I can better my arguments, because right now I don't think I'm really doing Floatzel justice.
