A Whole New Evolution In Water With Pokemon

Aug 18, 2008
With characters that range from cute to hideous, docile to aggressive, kind to vicious, and meek to brave, it is easy to see why people worldwide have gotten Pokemon fever. Pokemon is the second most successful video game-based franchise, trailing behind the Mario series, and can be found in video games, on television, on card games, clothing, and memorabilia. As of Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl, there are now 493 Pokemon, and it looks like the creators aren't stopping! This will discuss three of the original water Pokemon. Although they are three of the original 150 Pokemon, they are still a favorite among Pokemon fans.

At Number 060 in the National Pokedex is Poliwag, a blue-skinned, round tadpole that can be found in freshwater ponds and lakes that are abundant in lily pads. They can also be found by fishing or swimming in certain areas of water. It stands at just 2' tall and weighs a small 27 pounds. Its intestines can be seen through its semitransparent skin and appears as a large swirl on its abdomen. It waddles as it walks because its legs prevent it from running fast. Naturally, Poliwag prefers to swim than to stand or walk on dry land.

When Poliwag evolves at Level 25, it transforms into Poliwhirl, the Number 061 Pokemon in the National Pokedex. Although it is evolved, it weighs 24 pounds, less than its predecessor, and stands at 3'3". Its legs are more developed, allowing this Pokemon to live in or out of water. When it lives on land, it must maintain a slimy body by sweating continuously. Turning in the opposite direction of Poliwag, the swirl still shows through its skin and can be used in battle to cause drowsiness and induce sleep. It also has arms and what look like boxing gloves.

Poliwrath is the last stage of evolution for Poliwag and can only be evolved with the use of the water stone. Coming in at Number 062 in the National Pokedex, it is both a water and a fighting Pokemon and stands at 4'3" and weighs 119 pounds, almost five times more than Poliwag. Poliwrath resembles Poliwhirl, except it has thicker arms, giving the impression that it is a fighter. It can easily overtake the best swimmers, both human and Pokemon, and excels at both the front crawl and the breaststroke. Its arms never get tired, no matter how long or how often it uses them and is believed to be capable of swimming the entire diameter of the Pacific Ocean.
