Pokédex entry

Pokédex entry
The curled hair on its head proves its status as a king. It is said that the longer and curlier the hair, the more respect it earns from its peers.

Biology

Physiology

(From Bulbapedia) Politoed is a green, bipedal, frog-like Pokémon with yellow hands, belly, throat, and toes. It has a long, curled hair on top of its head and pink cheek spots that are smaller on the female than on the male. There is a green swirl on its belly. Its legs are well developed and it has bulbous toes and fingers. Politoed acts as a leader to Poliwag and Poliwhirl, which gather from afar upon hearing its cry. Politoed likes to expand its throat and sing. When three or more assemble, they sing in a chorus with a loud, bellowing voice. The curled hair on Politoed's head is considered proof of its status as a king. The longer and curlier Politoed's hair is, the more Poliwag and Poliwhirl will obey it, and the more it is respected by other Politoed. Politoed lives by the water's edge.

Trivia

Design origin

(From Bulbapedia) Politoed is likely based on a tree frog, possibly the European tree frog. The swirl on its stomach may represent visible internal organs, like those of a glass frog.

Name origin

(From Bulbapedia) Politoed is a combination of polliwog and a corruption of toad. It may also be a play on 'poly-toed', meaning "having many toes", since, as Poliwhirl, its feet were digitless.
