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

A girl who used Pokémon for cheerleading mistook Misty's Politoed for her own in I Politoed Ya So.

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

In the manga

Pokémon Special

In the 9th volume of Pokémon Special, Silver "borrowed" Gold's Poliwhirl in exchange for his own Seadra. Due to the effects of the Poliwhirl's King's Rock, plus the effects of both Gold and Silver's communication devices, Poliwhirl evolved into Politoed, and Seadra evolved into a Kingdra.
