Poliwag can be found in the following places by using the Old Rod: Route 14, 15, 16, 19, 21, Laverre City, Frost Cavern, Couriway Town, Pokemon Village, Victory Road. Poliwag can also be found as a Horde Battle in the grass in Pokemon Village. Poliwhirl can be found in the same fishing areas as Poliwag, but with the Good or Super Rod instead.

Politoed has a rare chance of being fished with a Super Rod on Route 19.

A King's Rock is given to the player by Lysandre in his cafe at Lumiose City. It is also a Pickup item. It can be found as a 5% chance hold item on Poliwhirl, Poliwrath, Politoed, Hariyama, and Hawlucha.

Because Poliwag can be found in a Horde Battle at Pokemon Village, it is possible for Politoed to have its Hidden Ability Drizzle during the main game.
