How Does Politoed Evolve?

Politoed is a Pokémon that evolves from a Poliwhirl after it holds the King's Rock evolutionary item while being traded with another player in "Pokémon XY." Politoed itself does not evolve into another form, as of August 2014. Politoed is number 186 in the National Pokédex.

A Politoed is a water-type Pokémon that features green and yellow colors on its body with a blue antenna on its head. This Pokémon shows a green, swirl-like pattern on its yellow stomach. Politoed is 3 feet, 7 inches tall and weighs nearly 75 pounds. The fictional creature is known as a "Frog Pokémon" and is called "Nyorotono" in the original Japanese version of the game.

Politoed knows two basic movies in the wild, "Water Absorb" and "Damp." The Pokémon learns "Perish Song" at level 35 and "Swagger" at level 51. Politoed learns "Water Gun," "Hypnosis" and "Doubleslap" at level one.

A Politoed starts as Poliwag and evolves into Poliwhirl at level 25. These creatures gather in groups to sing in a loud, bellowing voice. When a Politoed calls out to another, a Poliwag and Poliwhirl may respond to the cry. A wild version of Politoed is found along Route 19 in the video game "Pokémon XY."
