Politoed (Japanese: ニョロトノ Nyorotono) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Poliwhirl when traded holding a King's Rock. It is one of Poliwag's final forms.

Biology

Physiology

Politoed are very different physically from the rest of their evolutionary family as they now resemble a frog much more than previous forms. They are now green with yellow hands, belly, throat, and toes. Their legs have become well developed for jumping and they now sport pink cheek spots similar to those of Pikachu. Their head is now distinct from the rest of their torso and their mouth is now visible. They also have a long curled hair on top of their head, which is used as a status symbol among their kind. For all these differences, there's one feature that Politoed still posses: the swirl that the rest of their family has, though now in green and yellow.

Gender differences

The pink spots on a female's cheeks are smaller.

Special abilities

Politoed have the standard Template:Type2 abilities, but also gain impressive vocal abilities which can be used in battle in the forms Perish Song and Hyper Voice. They have also gained hopping abilities.

Behavior

Politoed lure other members of their evolution family near to them by croaking. They form a group of Poliwag and Poliwhirl with their self as the leader. When more than three Politoed assemble, they begin to sing in a chorus. Although rarely displayed, Poltioed can extend its tongue like real life frogs. It is unknown if it uses it to hunt in the wild.

Habitat

Politoed live in small freshwater ponds and lakes, usually ones that have an abundance of lily pads.

Major appearances

Misty's Politoed

Misty's Poliwhirl evolved into a Politoed in Outrageous Fortunes. This Politoed is very cheerful up to the point where it would occasionally lose focus in a battle and start clapping.

Other

Tammy, a young girl who used Pokémon for cheerleading, mistook Misty's Politoed for her own in I Politoed Ya So. She asked Misty to lend it to her for a while since she and her Politoed were angry at each other; later, they make amends and Tammy gives Misty's Politoed back to her.

Minor appearances

May battled against a Politoed in the Wisteria Town Contest in Harley Rides Again.

Another Politoed appeared in A Faux Oak Finish!, where Brock's Croagunk battled it.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Polibo

In the 9th volume, Silver "borrowed" Gold's Poliwhirl in exchange for his own Seadra. Due to the effects of the King's Rock Poliwhirl was holding, plus the effects of both Gold and Silver's communication devices, Poliwhirl evolved into Politoed, and Seadra evolved into a Kingdra. After its Whirlpool defeated the Rocket Grunts that surrounded them, the two Pokémon were then returned to their rightful owners.

Trivia

  • The long curled hair on Politoed's head is blue in the anime and stock art, but black in the games.
  • Politoed has the smallest level-up learnset of all Pokémon who evolve by trading.
  • Politoed's swirl is the same direction as Poliwag's, but opposite direction to Poliwhirl's and Poliwrath's.
  • In generation V, Politoed can have the Drizzle ability through Dream World. This makes it the only non legendary Pokemon to have this ability. Previously the only Pokemon to have this ability was Kyogre

Origin

It is likely based on a tree frog.

Name origin

Politoed is a combination of the word polliwog and a misspelling of the word toad. Its Japanese name may be a combination of ニョロニョロ nyoronyoro, the sound of slithering, and トノサマガエル tonosamagaeru, dark-spotted frog.

In other languages

  • German: Quaxo - Derived from quaken (to croak). Also the "Qua-" prefix of its previous forms' German names is kept.
  • French: Tarpaud – From tétard (tadpole) and crapaud (toad).
  • Korean: 왕구리 Wangguri - From wang (king) and gaeguri (frog).
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 牛蛙君 Niú Wā Jūn - "Bullfrog monarch".
