Poliwag is small Pokémon, about 2’ in height. Its actual skin colour is black, but a oily covering makes it look blue. The most memorable thing about the line is their semitransparent skin. This is most notable on Poliwag, with its intestines quite visible. Elastic skin protects the body from being ripped open from bites, slices or cuts, the former being common due to Poliwag’s poor balance on land. When Poliwag evolves into Poliwhirl, the former’s noticeable mouth gets smaller, almost to invisibility to the untrained eye, but the nostrils become noticeable. The Poliwhirl also has arms, ending in hands that appear to be gloved. It is at this point the Poliwhirl begins its main duty – hunting. It uses the undulation of its innards (having changed position since Poliwhirl) to mesmerise more stupid prey, such as Magikarp. It is also useful for escaping predators, such as Ekans.

Politoed is an alternate evolution from Poliwhirl, and is very distinct from the others in the line. This version is raniformed, with ungloved hands and toed feet. They have a curled growth growing from their now-distinct heads. Longer curls seem to be a status symbol, as Politoed with shorter curls have been seen to take orders from those with longer curls. Natural evolution from a Poliwhirl to a Politoed is even rarer than Poliwhirl to Poliwrath, but it can still be artificially induced. Each Poliwhirl has a gene that determines what they will evolve into upon the death of their monarch (see below). In the majority, it is naturally set so they won’t evolve. Next most common setting is for Poliwrath and the least common is for Politoed. This can, of course, be altered artificially, although the switch causes the Poliwhirl to evolve immediately. A ‘death pheromone’ from the Politoed triggers this gene (and only the death of the parent), so if a Poliwhirl misses the death of its parent monarch, it will never evolve naturally.

The line is usually found around freshwater lakes in wooded areas, both temperate and tropical. Tropical areas are preferred, as the regular rain means the delicate Poliwag aren't in danger of drying out.

That is because large catches go to the monarch and his or her bodyguard. As mentioned above whatever they don't eat will be eaten by the Poliwag. It is not unusual for Poliwrath to eat something they've killed, like a Furret, during the defence of the family, as a reward.

Poliwag, Poliwhirl and Politoed are quite docile Pokémon, and the former two should be no danger to a novice. Indeed, a Poliwhirl makes quite a proficient guard for children, as they can keep a dangerous creature mesmerised while the child runs away.

Poliwrath are dangerous (although not the most dangerous thing a trainer could encounter) and should be treated with the respect. They might not snap at the drop of a hat, but they can be quite violent if provoked.

A male monarch will fertilise the eggs that female Poliwrath spawn. A female monarch will lay thousands of eggs (usually more than what all the female Poliwrath in a family could lay) that will be fertilised by male Poliwrath. When the Poliwag are born, the Poliwhirl of the family cares for them. A Poliwhirl divides his or her time either by hunting for water Pokémon (which usually goes the monarch and its retinue) or looking after the Poliwag.

When the monarch of the family dies, there is the rush of natural evolution described above. There then comes a few weeks of fighting, each Politoed creating their own factions made up of Poliwrath while the younger forms stay out of the way, until a dominant Politoed asserts himself or herself. Generally, the new monarch will allow the losing Politoeds and whatever survives of their retinue to be exiled.
