How to Get Politoed in Pokemon Sun and Moon

Politoed, the water/fairy type Pokemon, is a popular choice among trainers in Pokemon Sun and Moon. To add this unique and powerful Pokemon to your team, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Catch a Poliwag

The first step towards obtaining a Politoed is to catch a Poliwag. Poliwag can be found in various locations throughout the Alola region, such as Route 5, Brooklet Hill, and Malie Garden. Keep searching in these areas until you encounter a Poliwag.

Step 2: Evolve Poliwag into Poliwhirl

Once you have caught a Poliwag, it's time to evolve it into Poliwhirl. To do this, level up Poliwag to level 25, and it will automatically evolve into Poliwhirl.

Alternative Method: Evolving Poliwhirl via Water Stone

If you happen to have a Water Stone, you can skip the leveling up process and use the Water Stone directly on Poliwag to evolve it into Poliwhirl.

Step 3: Obtain a King's Rock

In order to go further with the evolution chain and transform Poliwhirl into Politoed, you'll need to obtain a special item called King's Rock. There are several ways to acquire the King's Rock in Pokemon Sun and Moon:

  • Defeat wild Poliwhirl or Politoed - There is a small chance that the defeated Pokemon will drop a King's Rock as a held item.
  • Participate in Festival Plaza - Occasionally, you may receive a King's Rock as one of the rewards for participating in Festival Plaza mission battles.
  • Trade with other players - If you know someone who has a spare King's Rock, you can trade with them to obtain it for yourself.

Step 4: Evolve Poliwhirl into Politoed using King's Rock

Once you have obtained a King's Rock, equip it to your Poliwhirl, and then trade Poliwhirl with another player or through the GTS (Global Trade System). During the trade process, Poliwhirl will evolve into the majestic Politoed. Remember to check that Politoed has successfully evolved before finalizing the trade.

Extra Tip: Using GTS to Find Politoed for Trade

If you are having difficulty finding someone to trade with that will help you evolve Poliwhirl, you can use the GTS in your Pokemon Sun and Moon game. Deposit a Poliwhirl into the GTS and specify in the trade request that you are seeking a Politoed. With a bit of luck, another player will fulfill your trade request and you can obtain Politoed easily.

Congratulations! You have successfully obtained Politoed in Pokemon Sun and Moon. ...
