How to Evolve Poliwhirl into Politoed in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet The Teal Mask

If you're playing Pokemon Scarlet & Violet and looking to add Politoed to your team, you'll need to evolve Poliwhirl. While the traditional evolution route would lead you to Poliwrath, evolving Poliwhirl into Politoed is a great alternative.

To start the evolution process, you'll first need to acquire a King's Rock. Once you have it, give it to your Poliwhirl to hold and then trade the Pokemon with another trainer. This will trigger the evolution into Politoed.

Obtaining a King's Rock requires spending 10,000 Pokemon Dollars. You can find the King's Rock at the Delibird Presents shop in Mesagoza. However, if you don't see it listed in the inventory, it means you haven't completed enough Gyms. You must complete at least four game Gyms to unlock the King's Rock for sale.

Once you have the King's Rock, give it to your Poliwhirl to hold and trade with someone you trust. After the trade, your Poliwhirl will evolve into a Politoed, and you'll have a new addition to your team.
