Poliwager News Archive
Back in 2009, on April 10, Poliwager Forums was born. We were a small, but fruitful community. Over time, we've grown some, and shrunk some, but the theme remains the same here: We're a small, friendly, fun community based around Pokémon, but open to just chatting and hanging out.
As mentioned a few weeks back, Poliwager Forums has been a bit slow on the activity scale, and there are a few factors to that, but I want to try something that we did a few years ago to help raise activity and morale and just overall fun here!
From now until April 30th, we will be hosting a posting contest! Once you've joined, set out to post as many new topics and new posts as you can! To join, you simply need to reply to this announcement topic with the phrase "Like Poliwag, I'm in!". I will record your current post count on the topic, and at the end of the month, I'll re-evaluate how many posts you've made since you joined the contest, and the 5 top posters during the month will win a super cool Poliwager Forums Button, as shown above! If you are a winner, I will Private Message you when the winners are announced and connect with you about where I can ship the pin to.
Good luck, and let's have a good year on Poliwager Forums!
Hey guys! I know it's been a while since I updated the main site here, but don't worry. Poliwager Adoptables is still going strong, with around 100 members online a month, and many more joining every week. If you haven't already, be sure to check it out, and check out the monthly events posted here! New Pokémon are still being added to the site on a regular basis as well.
Poliwager Forums has been getting some small updates as well, like the new Quick Reply "Post" and "Preview" buttons, as well as some minor styling changes. I finally changed the logo at the top to better match the Poliwager.net and Poliwager Adoptables' logos. In addition to all that though, I'm here bringing some somewhat sad news. Poliwager Forums, unlike Poliwager Adoptables, has been declining rapidly in activity recently. Many of the members that were active on the forums have gotten busy with life, school, and jobs, including myself. I understand that life gets in the way, and many people these days are choosing to connect with Pokémon fans over things like Twitter and Discord, but I firmly believe that forums have a great way of creating deep and meaningful friendships with people, as well as it being easier to search through posts on a forum than it is on a chatroom or social media.
So, with Poliwager Forums' 8th birthday approaching next month, on April 10, I'm asking for your help. We need a small group of people passionate about this community, and what it can become again. I'm asking for you to invest some time into getting Poliwager Forums back off the ground again, and to start creating some new and awesome friendships. This forum has always had a soft spot in my heart because some of my best online friends over the years I met through here. If you're new to Poliwager Forums, please take some time to look around, and introduce yourself, and jump right in. I know things aren't active right now, but if a few of us get conversations going, things will pick up! If you are nervous about diving into a new community alone, invite a friend! Share Poliwager on Twitter or Facebook.
We've gone through a rough spot of slowness on Poliwager Forums, but it doesn't have to be that way forever. Let's get things going again! Thank you so much for taking the time for reading this long and somewhat emotional post. Stay tuned for more information coming soon on promoting Poliwager as well. I hear there might be a giveaway soon...
If you feel so inclined, please share your thoughts and help us build morale by posting in the announcement topic for this news.
Guys. Poliwager.net is now 8 years old. It's been a miraculous time getting to know people through the site, and being able to spend time working on something I truly love is amazing, so thank you guys. Thanks for the support, and let's have another great year!
Check out the other fun things happening today and the rest of this month on the November Event thread on Poliwager Forums!
Poliwager Adoptables is now 6 years old! It's been a wonderful year, and the past 6 years have been a wonderful experience for me, learning more about web design and web programming, and getting to make cool things for all of you guys to explore! I'm incredibly grateful that so many of you continue to come back to the Adoptables and give feedback for the site, and continue to push the limits of what I think is possible! Here's to another year of the Poliwager Adoptables!
Be sure to read the rest of the announcement here on the Poliwager Forums!
Hello everyone! Poliwager.net turned 7 years old about a week ago, on November 27. To help celebrate, we're going to do something I've wanted to for a long time now.

Here we are! Poliwager.net is now 7 years old! We've come a long way as a community on the Poliwager Forums and the Poliwager Adoptables in that time! Please check out the Adoptables today because of the 4x multiplier and the Mew Event Ticket as well!
I honestly can't believe we've come this far, and year after year it amazes me that you guys have kept Poliwager going with your continued activity and support, and that means the world to me, and it makes me so happy to know that there are people that love going on this small community I've helped create with all of you. So, thank you all, and let's have another great year this year!
The main site here hasn't been updated in some time, but that doesn't mean that Poliwager is not a happening place! The Poliwager Forums have been growing over the past few months with new members here and there, so if you haven't joined in the fun on the forums, do so now! Also, be sure to check out the November 2015 Event topic for the Adoptable, which outlines what will be happening this month on the Adoptables, including Black Friday sales in the Shop, a multiplier and a Mew Event Ticket for the site's birthday, and Relic Collecting! Last but not least, Poliwager.net turns 7 years old this month, on the 27th of November, so be sure to hang out on the Forums and the Adoptables, because there will be plenty of exciting things happening for you to partake in!
For promotion and for your enjoyment, check out the new Poliwager Wallpaper for the 7th anniversary here!
There are a few new Wallpapers I've created over the past few months and finally uploaded, one for "Car Radio" by twenty one pilots in both an iPhone 5 size and a 1920x1200, and one for "The Lark Ascending or (Perhaps More Accurately, I'm Trying to Make You Sing)" by David Crowder Band in a 1920x1200 size. Enjoy!
Happy 6th birthday to Poliwager Forums! That's right, 6 years ago today, Poliwager Forums was born. With just a few members, we had our start, and look where we've come, all these years later! If you haven't seen the Best Poliwager Forums Memories from 2009-2015 that users have been posting over the past few days, please check that out! Also, be sure to stop by today and over the next few days, we'll definitely be celebrating for a while and having fun hanging out!
On the Poliwager Adoptables today, you can redeem an Event Ticket for Birthday Poliwag, and there is a 3x multiplier for interactions and views because of the Poliwager Forums birthday!
Also, as of today, Poliwager now has an official Twitter account! Be sure to follow the account for updates to Poliwager, and to connect easier with other members and Pokémon fans!
As you may have guessed, the 0.41x multiplier day on April 1st and Dunsparce Appreciation Month were April Fools Day jokes! Hope you got a bit of a laugh out of that!
On a more real update side, Individual Values, or IVs were added to the Poliwager Adoptables a few days ago as well, so be sure to check that out! Also, there was a topic posted today for posting your Best Poliwager Forums Memories from 2009-2015, because Poliwager Forums will be turning 6 years old on April 10th! Post your thoughts today!
Happy Dunsparce Appreciation Month everyone! To celebrate the occasion, there is an Event Ticket active on Poliwager Adoptables for a Dunsparce, as well as today being a 0.41x multiplier day! Also, from Friday April 3rd until Sunday, Easter, April 5th, there will be Easter Happiny eggs available to adopt, so be sure to get one! One last thing, if you haven't seen the update for the Game Corner Poster, please make sure you check it out! Happy April, and good luck on this month's event!
Hey guys! There are a few updates to make you aware of in the world of Poliwager! First off, there is a new PokéPicks for Plusle VS Minun posted on Poliwager Forums, so go make your vote for your favorite Pokémon between the two now! Second, the March & April Event is currently happening, so be sure to check that out for the Poliwager Adoptables! Lastly, if you have any suggestions at all for Poliwager, Poliwager Forums, or Poliwager Adoptables, please post them in this suggestion topic! We'd love to hear your input!
Happy Holidays from Poliwager! I hope your holidays are going great, and they're all filled with joy! There are just a few minor things I wanted to make you aware of that are happening on Poliwager for the holidays!
Poliwager Adoptables is having multipliers for Christmas Eve (today), Christmas, and New Years Eve and Day this holiday season. Also, be sure to adopt your Christmas Tropius before they disappear for the season!
One final thing, Poliwager Forums is doing a big initiative to try to bring a load of activity to the forums over the next few months. There are a few goal set up to try to get us all moving into action, and we need your help! Without the community, there isn't a community, after all! Come join in the fun during this holiday and I hope to see you all soon!
Notice something different about Poliwager? Poliwager.net has had a complete redesign, along with a completely new goal for the site.
First off, many of the old pages have been "removed" from the site (they are still available if you click the header "Pokémon Video Games" on the sidebar on the left side of the page), because they weren't really being used, updated, or really at all necessary since other sites like Bulbapedia or Serebii have the same information with more details and better organization. Because of this, Poliwager is now much more streamlined, with only a few important pages available, ones that people will actually be able to use because they offer unique information. Because of this, Poliwager.net is now more dedicated to the Wallpapers page, which is what I've actually been consistently updating these past few years.
Secondly, Poliwager.net is now a better portal to easily access Poliwager Adoptables links, and Poliwager Forums links. These are primarily the "community" aspects of the site that is always talked about when referring to Poliwager, so why not have those links more prominent and visible?
Thirdly, Poliwager.net has a right sidebar with nice links to the Facebook page, Twitter page, and YouTube page, and a live Twitter feed of recent tweets with #poliwager included in them, so this section of the site is even more community driven than before. Last but not least over there is a custom Google Search bar, which allows you to search Poliwager, Poliwager Adoptables, and Poliwager Forums all in one go.
I know it'll take some getting used to, but I definitely think this change will benefit Poliwager overall for a very long time, and help bring focus to what Poliwager is intended for, which is bringing community together and having fun.
See you around!
Wow. It's been 6 years today since Poliwager was born. We've come such a far way, gathering as friends on the Poliwager Forums, and collecting Pokémon eggs on the Poliwager Adoptables together! To celebrate, there is a 4x multiplier on the Poliwager Adoptables today, as an Event Ticket for Regigigas, so be sure to hang on the site for a while today to take advantage of all the fun stuff! We'll also be throwing a party of sorts on the Poliwager Forums, as we usually do, so come hang out with us and tell your friends to come also!
Finally, it's Thanksgiving again (for the first time that Poliwager's birthday and Thanksgiving has coincided since the first year), so be sure to tell all those that you're thankful for that you're thankful for them. I know I'm very thankful that all of you have continued to provide me with support, love, and company over the years, so thank you! Have a good day everyone, and here's to another year!
Also, a somewhat minor thing, but worth noting, the blue style (with a new banner!) is now the default style on the site. Isn't it nice?
Secret Santa is coming to Poliwager Forums this winter! Find out how to participate and exchange Pokémon randomly with fellow players by reading this topic!
There has been a new style choice added, a new Blue Style, which can be found on the sidebar on the right side of the site! Enjoy!
Hey Poliwagers! It has been a bit, but don't worry! I've updated the Breeding Pokémon and Eggs page to include more Pokémon X and Y information, including some breeding changes in the games, as well as a cool fact about Poké Balls. Enjoy!
Hey guys! TheSpeedGamers is doing a week long Pokémon Marathon for charity for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital right now until Friday! Go check them out, donate if you can, and enjoy what they're doing! I donated a little bit already, and it's really exciting to see what they've done so far. As a side note in this, because I donated, I got to name the Poliwag "Poliwager" and they drew all of the Poliwag evolution line for their Ranch there! Thanks to you guys for all the hard work and raising money for a good cause!
I went ahead and made some minor changes to the site, one being that the General Pokémon category on the side is now at the top, since it addresses more than one game in most cases, not just one game, and then the games' sections are below it in descending order from newest to oldest. There was an error on the Trade Evolutions page, and that has been fixed (thanks, anonymous email user!). Finally, the Breeding and Eggs page has been reorganized and easier to read, as well as more clear in pretty much all of the page. And now, it includes X and Y information as well. Enjoy, and there will be more updates coming soon!
Today, Poliwager Adoptables turns 4 years old! We've come quite a long way in these 4 years, and the Adoptables has grown to be a fairly large and vibrant community, so thanks to everyone for that, and here's to another year!
The Pay Day page has been updated to include X and Y information, which is the same information from the 5th generation, carried over.
A wallpaper featuring Elsa from Frozen has been put up after making it for a friend. Enjoy!
The day is finally here, the day that Poliwager Forums turns 5 years old! Come check out the fun we're having hanging out and chatting about life, Pokémon, and everything in between!
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! I've made a fairly simple green St. Patrick's Day wallpaper on a whim today, enjoy!
A new blue Apple themed wallpaper has been added to the Wallpapers page! Enjoy!
A new Luvdisc themed wallpaper for Valentine's Day coming up for iPhone and iPod touch has been added to the Wallpapers page! Enjoy!
A new Poliwhirl themed wallpaper for iPhone and iPod touch has been added to the Wallpapers page!
Since Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter are now out in America, I've added a list of exclusive Pokémon that can only be obtained in X and Y by transferring them from a 5th generation game with Poké Transporter to the Version Exclusives page.
Here we are. 5 years after Poliwager was started.
On this day, November 27, in 2008, I sat down at my computer on Thanksgiving and began working on a few small pages, notably the Happiness page (I say notably because I honestly don't remember a ton of what was first around back then.). This was done in iWeb, a program that used to be included with Macs for making quick and easy webpages and getting them online with my Apple account. The domain name wasn't at all official, so in January 2010, I learned HTML and CSS and completely rewrote Poliwager and then in May that year I bought the domain name Poliwager.net for it. After that, Poliwager started taking off more. Earlier, in April 2009, however, I created the Poliwager Forums, which were also under a free domain name that wasn't through Poliwager.net's either, and that was pretty successful the first year and a half until I moved the forums over to the Poliwager.net subdomain, Forums.Poliwager.net, which was a wonderful change. Also in 2010, the Poliwager Adoptables was started in June. And as they say, the rest is history. (If you're curious about more history of the site, please check this page out!)
Since that first day of Poliwager, we've hosted tournaments, played games together, adopted Pokémon together, hung out in the Chatterbox, and just had a great time. From the bottom of my heart, I'd like to say thank you, all of you, for helping make Poliwager a success, and having fun with everyone involved!
Poliwager will turn 5 years old on November 27, 2013, in just a few weeks, and to help celebrate I made a wallpaper for Poliwager's 5 Years of Awesome. To help show your support, use this wallpaper, share it with your friends, post it on Twitter, or whatever you can do to help celebrate! Also, the Poliwager Forums can always use some new members, so if you haven't had a chance to check out it out yet, please do, we're going to have a (hopefully big) celebration for Poliwager's 5th Anniversary on there as well! Hope to see you around!
The Stone Evolutions page has been updated to include Pokémon that evolve with evolution stones and locations for buying and obtaining the stones in X and Y.
After discovering there are new Pokémon in X and Y that evolve through trading, I added those names to the Trade Evolutions page. I also began to reorganize the Pokémon X and Y discoveries page to sort it a little easier.
My copy of Pokémon X is here. I will begin adding content to the Pokémon X and Y discoveries page in a few minutes and as I play the game. Check back over the next few days and later today to see what I've discovered!
Again, with Pokémon X and Y being released very soon, I got an idea of where to post my Pokémon X and Y discoveries once the games come out. I'll be posting all sorts of *spoiler* worthy things there: when Pokémon evolve, locations of things, and anything else interesting I find out. Please, if you like the idea, share the page around so others can read what I've got to say regarding the games. It will also help Poliwager out if more people are seeing my discoveries page! Check back on the 12th there to see what is happening.
With Pokémon X and Y being released in just under 2 weeks, I decided to make another wallpaper for an upcoming Pokémon, Frogadier, Froakie's evolution. Enjoy!
With the release of Pokémon X and Y on the horizon, I added a section to the Version Exclusive Pokémon page for the currently released version exclusive Pokémon in Pokémon X and Y.
A few Pokémon wallpapers have been added featuring Kyogre and older Eevee artwork over the past few days. I also updated the Pokémon featured pages for Tympole and Bellsprout to include hidden abilities and Black 2 and White 2 information. The Status Problems page has also been overhauled to include actual numbered information including how much HP is lost and similar things to that nature.
A wallpaper has been made featuring Growlithe! Enjoy!
A handful of wallpapers have been made featuring Typhlosion! There are sizes for a standard display (1920x1200), for the iPhone 4 and 4S with Retina Display (640x960), the iPhone 5 with Retina Display (640x1136), and the iPad with Retina Display (2048x1536). I realized last minute - and couldn't change it - that the iPad one should have been sized at 2048x2048 so it will show properly when the screen orientation is changed, but I tested it and even with that affecting it, it looks good. Enjoy!
A Pokémon X and Y Wallpaper has been added to the Wallpapers page. I think it turned out pretty good!
The Version Exclusive Pokémon page has finally been updated to include Black 2 and White 2 information.
I made a few adjustments to the Shiny Pokémon page to make it a little easier to understand as well as adding a section for the third generation games, since there wasn't one before and people may have been wondering how it works in there (it's the default shiny ratio no matter what, in case you were wondering).
It was actually a day or two ago, but I updated a bunch of pages with minor things. The more major updates were to the Breeding Pokémon and Shiny Pokémon pages, to include information for Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.
As I'm sure some of you have already heard from various other places, a new set of Pokémon games was announced today on Pokémon Direct. Pokémon X and Pokémon Y were announced for the 3DS, the first main series coming to the 3DS. The three starter Pokémon, Chespin, the Grass starter, Fennekin, the Fire starter, Froakie, the Water starter, and two unnamed Pokémon, presumably legendary Pokémon, were also announced. Older Pokémon will be coming before you beat the storyline in these games, unlike Black and White, where everything was brand new until you beat the storyline. The games will be released internationally in October this year, in complete 3D, a first for both, and it looks like it'll all be really exciting to play! If you want to discuss anything about these new games, feel free to post it on the Poliwager Forums!
And after a while of procrastinating, I finally updated my list of Healing Locations in Black and White. It should be complete now, but as always, if there's any I missed, please let me know.
Happy New Year everyone! I actually made another wallpaper a few weeks ago that is the same as the last 4th Anniversary of Poliwager, but this new one is white themed, instead of black. I also just finished another style for the site, which you can select on the right side's menu. It's winter themed, featuring nice blue and white colors across it, as well as wintery Pokémon for the banners and styling. Enjoy!
After yet another year, here we are still all on Poliwager, after 4 years! Since last year at this time I've added tons more features to the Poliwager Adoptables, we've hit over 50,000 Pokémon adopted, over 2,000 members, and much much more! It's been really great working on stuff for you guys, and as always, I'd love to thank everyone for joining, sticking around, enjoying all I have to offer here on Poliwager and the Forums and the Adoptables! Thanks so much for making me want to make it all even better, even more. Thanks again!
As a plus for the Adoptables, there is a 4x multiplier today, as well as an event ticket for Mew! Enjoy and be sure to tell your friends about the event!
Here's to the next year!
Here's a small update half way through the day, a wallpaper for the 4th Anniversary of Poliwager!
There is a new wallpaper featuring Politoed up!
I've added a bit more general detail and a section about obtaining berries to the Daily Stuff page today!
Yes, it's been a while. And yes, I have some plans for updates here. To start, the Breeding and Eggs page has had a little added to it to help it be easier to understand. Also, the Stone Evolutions page has been moved from the Diamond and Pearl category to the General category, and now has Pokémon from the 5th generation added it as well as info on where to get extra stones from Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed and LeafGreen. More to come, stay tuned!
As you probably have noticed, the Poliwager Adoptables and Forums have been down since last night. I'm working on a fix right now. Be patient, please, I'll get it back to business soon hopefully.
A brand new pink style based off of Luvdisc has been added! You may try it out by clicking on the right menu for it. Happy Valentine's Day and hope you enjoy it!
A new iPhone and iPod touch wallpaper is up for Politoed!
The first update to the main section of Poliwager for 2012! First of all, I hope all of you had a great New Year and happy holidays! I've gone through and edited a bunch of pages with minor things, like adding a bit more detail to the Underground page, among other pages, and a whole bunch of facts that were a little off and typos.
Wow. So here we are, 3 years after Poliwager was started. There wasn't much when I made the first page on here, the Happiness page, in 2008 on iWeb, and boy, have I come far as a web owner. Since then I've learned HTML and CSS to effectively make a proper web site, and I've also picked up PHP to help make the Adoptables, which has been growing and becoming a huge success over the past few months especially. Poliwager Forums has grown from a few small forum goers, to a bunch of friendly people that make up the community over there as well. It's been a long journey, and I never thought Poliwager would be where it was after this all of this time. As always, I want to thank everyone that has enjoyed the pages I make, the Adoptables, the Forums and keep coming back for more! You guys are great, and a huge part of the success of Poliwager. Without you, the site could have died out a long time ago. So thank you so very much.
I figured I had to update the site at least in a minor way for the 3 year anniversary, so the Poliwager Adoptables has a x3 multiplier for interaction maturity gains, and I also uploaded my sister's artwork for a wallpaper and a postcard for the site. Thanks so much to her for her support in the site too!
Also, this marks the first full year of forums.poliwager.net, or Poliwager Forums, 2.0. As some of you remember, last year at this time, we switched over to the actual Poliwager.net subdomain for the forums, making it more official and more awesome! I'm so proud of everyone on here for being so awesome. Here's to another year!
It's been exactly two months since I updated the main site for Poliwager, and in that time I had a birthday (October 19), so now I'm 17! That's pretty exciting, and coming up, on the 27th is Poliwager's 3rd year anniversary! I actually have content for the main site this time though, and it's a page detailing the Exp. All in the first generation of Pokémon games. It's one of those concepts that's a little hard to understand, so I put it into my own words and hopefully it helps!
No, I'm not dead, in case you were wondering why there hasn't been any updates in a while. In fact, there has been a few updates to the main site for Poliwager, but there's been even more updates being done on the Poliwager Adoptables. There's been a really cool luck based number guessing game added, tons more Pokémon, and lots of small things that make the site more enjoyable. If you haven't already, please go check it out! A few days ago, I affiliated with Takharii, who runs Takharii's Stuff, a cool Pokémon website! The last thing I wanted to tell all of you is that starting a few days ago, Google ads have been added to the Adoptables and Forums. But! Don't worry about them being annoying. I made them only show for guests, and they won't be on the main site here. Hopefully I'll get a little bit of money to help run the site.
I've finally gotten around to linking my Twitter page and Twitter buttons on Poliwager. You can find my link here, as well as on the About page. If there's any page you want to share to your followers, simply press the button on the bottom of any page and it'll let you do that real easy.
Since I've been playing through Sapphire, for my first time, I updated the Breeding and Eggs page for Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald.
The Poliwager Adoptables has something entirely new as of today. The way adoptions are handled is different. Read more about it here.
Last but not least for today, I just wanted to remind you that the Poliwager Adoptables Raising Competition ends in only a little more than a week, so be sure to get that Dwebble raised and posted on the topic on the forums!
I added a new image to the Humor page. Today is my dad's birthday as well, just wanted to give a shoutout to him, and a thanks for helping pay for the site and all that good stuff. Thanks Dad!
I have some big plans for the Adoptables right now, and it's already in the works, so you'll be seeing it soon!
I've updated the About page with current stuff about me. I also finally made a style switcher that works! Check it out, it's on the right side menu. There's a darker blue style, the current green one, and the Bellsprout style that was used for April Fools Day this year. Simply click the style you want to select it. I'll probably make more styles in the future for lighter colors, but for now, enjoy!
The Bellsprout page has been updated to include Pokémon Black and White information.
I just made a Poliwrath wallpaper for iPhone and iPod touch. I think it turned out great.
Evergreenn has made two wallpapers with Charmander on it. Enjoy!
The Poliwag, Poliwhirl, Poliwrath and Politoed pages are now updated to include information from Pokémon Black and White. You can catch them and continue loving Poliwag in the new games the same as before!
I've added two more places in the Healing Locations in Black and White, Route 7 and Celestial Tower. Tomorrow is the last day to adopt an Easter Happiny, so be sure to get one! There's also been a lot of new updates to the Adoptables, and the Poliwager Forums have been very active as well lately.
The Pokémon Version Exclusives page now has the exclusives for Pokémon Black and White.
The Poliwager Adoptables have been getting more and more Pokémon added to it, including a special Easter Happiny, just for the week around Easter. The event will end April 26, so get one while you can! Look for this description: A green, pink, and blue egg that comes out around Easter time.
Just kidding! Poliwager being renamed Bellsprouter was just an April Fool's Day joke! Fooled ya! I hope you enjoyed that fun little surprise. The About page has been updated for the occasion, and there is a full page on the joke here.
Introducing: The new mascot! Bellsprout! Poliwager has been renamed Bellsprouter due to my recent obsession with Bellsprout. So there has also been a page added for Bellsprout, telling you everything you need to know about it! I hope you all love the new style!
Adding to the Black and White pages, Tympole, the new tadpole Pokémon, has a page dedicated to it.
There's a brand new iPad Wallpaper with the Poliwag evolutions. This one is the first iPad wallpaper, and it looks really nice on the big display. Also up today is a new Apple Retina Display wallpaper.
The first Pokémon Black and White page is up! The page is on healing locations in the game that aren't Pokémon Centers. Note that this is a work in progress because I have not beaten the game yet, so I don't know where all the locations are. Enjoy!
Have a Retina Display Wallpaper with the Poliwag evolutions. I've been making more wallpapers because it seems that people really like using them.
I've made a wallpaper with Grass and Bug Type Pokémon with the Pokémon's Dream World artwork. Enjoy!
Lately I've been adding new Pokémon to the Poliwager Adoptables as well. You are now able to adopt Pichu, Caterpie and more new ones.
Evergreenn made another wallpaper, featuring Shikijika, a Fifth Generation Pokémon.
I've made a whole page on Poliwhirl, Poliwrath and Politoed, just like the page on Poliwag that's already out. I also updated some small things on the Poliwag page, including adding Dream World Artwork and a trozei sprite.
Over the past few weeks, Poliwager Forums has been getting more styling work done on it. I turned the RedSilver3 style into a Fire Pokémon style and edited some minor things on there.
Happy New Years! First update of 2011 is a new New Years 2011 Pokémon wallpaper! I hope you all have a great holiday and enjoy the wallpaper!
Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone! To celebrate, I made a Christmas Pokémon wallpaper. I hope you all have a great holiday!
Introducing: Poliwager Forums 2.0! I'm very pleased to announce that starting today, Poliwager Forums is on an actual subdomain of Poliwager.net! Go join the new forums and continue having fun talking to other members!
On another note, today is also Poliwager's 2nd birthday! Two years ago today I made Poliwager, and boy, has it changed.
Expect to see more updates regarding Poliwager Forums coming soon!
A page detailing the Technician Ability is up. Read about the ability that can be a little bit confusing.
I know it's been a while since I made any updates to Poliwager, but don't worry. I have a page in mind that will be up soon. For now, I added a Retina Display wallpaper for iPhones and iPod touches. I also added the code to the site for rounded corners on the menu for Opera.
If you haven't voiced your opinion on the Poliwager Forums move to Poliwager.net, please do so!
Today is my birthday! As a celebration of the event, I asked Gluttony to make a few sprites for a special Birthday Poliwag available only today on the Adoptables! Look for the line, "... seems to be extra special." Go get one before it's too late!
Over the course of the month of October, I'll be releasing fall and Halloween type Pokémon for the adoptables, such as ghosts. Today I added Misdreavus. Come back in a few days to see what other Pokémon eggs have been added!
I've been doing more work on the Adoptables portion of Poliwager, and there's more being added every day as far as features go. I made a new wallpaper for a song. It's a pretty simple one for the song "Forever Yellow Skies" by The Cranberries. Last but not least for this update, I added an image to the humor page.
I made a whole page on Version Exclusives for every Pokémon game. So this should be a one stop resource if you're checking what Pokémon are only available in what game.
I've made a wallpaper for iPhones and iPod touches today. I'll probably make more eventually. For now, enjoy!
Yesterday we got our first affiliate, FireChao.com, and today was our second, Pokereview. I've added the banners to the side menu underneath Site. I'd like to welcome both of them! If anyone else wants to affiliate with us here, please check out the forums for more information.
I redid some links here on Poliwager, including moving some files to folders one level up, so for example, instead of poliwager.net/hgss.shtml, it's poliwager.net/hgss. Also, all the old links redirect to the new ones, so you don't have to worry. The links that I did were the HeartGold and SoulSilver, Diamond and Pearl, and Red, Blue and Yellow pages. The other ones will stay as is for now.
Started just this week, Poliwager Forums is having a posting contest! We're aiming for 20,000 posts by the end of summer. To join in, check out this topic.
I've made a few new sprites over the past few days, and I'll be doing more of them soon. Also, if you haven't been over to Poliwager Forums in a while, now would be a good time to check it out. We're having more and more people online because of summer time. Come join in the fun!
Since I felt it was one of those pages that not too many people know about, I made a page about Trade Evolutions for all of the Pokémon games. I hope this proves to be a useful page for people!
The Poliwager Adoptables has gotten a few new adoptables as well. I don't want to give them away, but be sure to check the descriptions for the eggs!
Well, I'm officially out of school for the summer, so updates to Poliwager should be more often. First off, a page all about the Pokéwalker. I actually wrote this the other day, but forgot about uploading it until now. I'll be making more pages and more updates to the Adoptables site soon!
I've added two pictures to the Humor page. I hope you found them as funny as I did when I saw them!
I also added a picture that I took (that's why it's not excellent) of what getting an Apricorn in HeartGold and SoulSilver looks like and placed it on the Apricorns page.
On another note, the Poliwager Adoptables site is going well. I've made a few more adoptable Pokémon and a few other changes to the site overall. I hope you check it out if you haven't already!
Introducing the Poliwager Adoptables! Right now all you can adopt is a Poliwag. Well, two Poliwags, because one evolves into Poliwrath and the other into Politoed. Though I'm not giving away which of them evolve into what and when, you'll have to figure that out yourselves! I'd like it if you could join and level up each others' pets. If you have an suggestions on which Pokémon I should implement, please post it on the Forums. Enjoy!
Welcome to the future of Poliwager. Poliwager now has it's very own domain name, Poliwager.net. Please fix any links that you may have saved or posted anywhere to have the new domain. The old Macideedoo.com links will point to this url for a while, until my dad has to completely shut down the server here. That is also why I decided to get a domain name of my own for Poliwager. As always, I'll be updating things here in the coming days, especially as school ends.
I made some wallpaper sized images in my digital photography class that I thought I should share with the world. One is of Cyndaquil and a few other Pokémon in a montage, and the other is of Shiki from The World Ends with You. Enjoy!
I was thinking the other day, and noticed there's been a little questioning about the move Pay Day. So I made a page detailing it. It has everything about the move, from Red and Blue to HeartGold and SoulSilver.
I found out about Firefox Personas the other day, and I think they're pretty cool. So, I decided that I'd make my own, even though I mainly use Safari. Here's a link to the Poliwag one I made. A link to this can be found in the Site menu on the right.
Continuing with the HeartGold and SoulSilver updates, I rewrote the Breeding and Eggs page. In it, I made a section about breeding and eggs on HeartGold and SoulSilver, and I wrote a small part about the Day Care in Red, Blue and Yellow, since we have Red, Blue and Yellow pages here on Poliwager as well. I'm not sure how I'll be able to organize the menu once I get most of the pages rewritten to apply to HeartGold and SoulSilver, but I'll figure it out.
HeartGold and SoulSilver have arrive at Poliwager! I started with a page detailing Apricorns. I will be making more HeartGold and SoulSilver pages in the coming days and converting some pages to fit both Diamond and Pearl and HeartGold and SoulSilver.
After meaning to do it for a long time, I reordered the side menu. It was surely a mess before. Now everything is neatly organized by name. Also, I finally split up the menu on the other side of the page. Now the Site section is on the right.
I added a section to the Poliwag page for info on HeartGold and SoulSilver and the PokéWalker.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone! Poliwager was in need of a little color adjustment, so I went ahead and changed around some colors including the background and titles. I will also make a new banner later, so check back for that!
Update: New banner is up, along with a rounded menu if you're using Firefox or Safari. Enjoy!
I fixed all of the links on the site. Now instead of showing the .shtml, they just have the title of the page.
A new Apple Wallpaper is up that I made. I fixed a few small things around the site, including the border around the top banner image.
A new Wallpaper is up, made by my sister!
The Poliwager Tier List has been updated, with moving a few Ubers to OverUsed.
The February Poliwager Forums Tournament has been posted. Again, set up by Jolteon. Join in the fun today!
Also, a small thing. I added 3 buttons in the footer of the page. The first is Poliwager, my GPX+ Pokémon, and the mascot of Poliwager. The second and third are topsite buttons. Click those to help Poliwager and Poliwager Forums become more popular!
A new Politoed sprite is up. I think it turned out pretty good.
Also, Poliwager Forums is hosting a Pokémon WiFi Tournament. Jolteon is organizing it, and the details can be found here. Join in the fun!
I fixed the menu too, so now it lights up when you mouse over it anywhere on the line.
I've made some Wallpapers for everyone! Have fun!
A new sprite is up. Gastly from Yellow Version.
Poliwager is now supported 100% in Internet Explorer, though I recommend using Firefox or Safari.
I made a new sprite from Pinball today.
Hey everyone! Know what this is? Poliwager in HTML!
I'll be using this address and format for making Poliwager from now on. The new site URL is: poliwager.macideedoo.com. Much easier to remember and to type in.
