Politoed (ニョロトノ) is the 75th Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is a Water-Type, and is known as the Frog Pokémon.

Politoed can use one of two Abilities: Water Absorb, which heals up to 25% of its maximum HP should it get hit with a Water-Type move; or Damp, which prevents Selfdestruct and Explosion from working whilst in battle. A third Ability is available to Politoed from the Dream World, the Drizzle Ability, which changes the weather to heavy rain upon its entry into battle.

Poliwag can evolve into Poliwhirl at Level 25, and can evolve into a Politoed if its traded while holding a King's Rock. Alternately, a Poliwhirl can evolve into a Poliwrath by using a Water Stone on it.

Politoed is in the Water 1 Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Politoed 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitve Battling

Politoed has always been relegated to the Neverused tier of Pokemon, but Dream World's gift to the toed was the ability Drizzle, shooting him all the way up to the Overused tier of Pokemon. Previously exclusive to Kyogre, Politoed can bring out the rain and help many Pokemon, from Tornadus to Starmie function well in Overused. Even though there was a Swift Swim plus Drizzle ban, Politoed has brought up one of the most dominant playstyles in the metagame. Politoed itself is not a great Pokemon, but it can run a defensive set to some success, and can run a Choice Specs or a Choice Scarf set to either break through other weather inducers and some walls, or be a good revenge killer.
