Politoed, the Frog Pokémon. Politoed is a Water-type Pokémon, and it evolves from Poliwhirl traded while holding a King's Rock. Politoed is one of the final evolutions for Poliwhirl, the other being Poliwrath.
Gold, Silver, and Crystal
Politoed debuted in Gold and Silver. It's #186 in the National Dex. There is now breeding, so Politoed can either be male or female, and it’s in the Water 1 egg group. Politoed can be shiny as well. Poliwhirl can now evolve into Politoed, a Water-type Pokémon, by trading it with a King’s Rock attached, instead of only Poliwrath, as it was in Red, Blue, and Yellow.
Politoed cannot be caught in Gold, Silver, and Crystal. You must evolve a Poliwhirl to obtain Politoed.
Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald
Politoed cannot be caught in Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald; you have to trade it from FireRed or LeafGreen. In Ruby and Sapphire, Pokémon got abilities, and Politoed’s is either Water Absorb or Damp. Water Absorb recovers 25% HP when Politoed’s hit by a Water-type move, and Damp prevents Exploding or Self Destructing in a battle.
