There are anons on this board right now that think poliwrath isn't a frog.
>>
no fur = not a frog
>>
>>49269014
>frogs have sticky tongues they use to catch bugs
>Poliwrath has no mouth
>therefore has no tongue
>no tongue = no frog
it’s basic biology
>>
>>49269049
Poliwrath does have a mouth. It's hidden in the line between the white of its stomach and the blue of its face.
>>
>>49269014
It’s called the tadpole Pokémon you uneducated illiterate glue-eating retard
>>
>>49269065
no way fag
>>
>>49269079
It has no tail. It has frog hangs. It's a frog.

nope, if it had a mouth it would open it to eat with.
>>
>>49269096
How does it eat in the first place then?
>>
>>49269065
actually is true, but who care?
>>
>>49269112
I dunno, magic I guess. Magnemite can eat with no mouth, as can Beldum, and Unown, and so on. No reason Poliwrath specifically needs one to eat.
>>
>>49269096
Well, that's fucking stupid.
Pokedex mentions it eating bugs and fish, does it just absorb them?
>>
>>49269049
Poliwrath has a mouth, she just hides it

Don’t call my wife a monster again

>>49269123
I prefer the Poliwrath we got but I still and will always lament Poliwhirl's loss of fingers, though I understand said loss thematically.
>>
>>49269079
What species are tadpoles?
Following this line of though, what species are kids?
What species are caterpillars?
What species are any insect larvae with a different name to their adult forms?
>>
>>49269196
Don't call my husband a wife ever again.
>>
Why is she wearing gloves?
>>
>>49269014
It's not, it's a tadpole

He's a muscular tadpole
UNF!

Why?
What relevance does this have to the thread?
>>
>>49269332
Show me the tail.

>Primeape is both a pig and a monkey
>No tail
Wtf Kanto bros
>>
No the white space with the spiral is its open mouth, and the spiral is inside the mouth
>>
>>49269788
Its literally not.
That's it's stomach with see through skin showing its intestines.
>>
>>49269769
Show me the frog
>>
>>49269774
primeAPE, that’s why
>>
>>49269014
it's a tadpole, that's why he's pissed off from not turning into a frog. the only reason he doesn't turn into politoed normally is because of pollution from kanto.

Chermicals in the water are turning the Poliwraths gay!

The entire theme of the line is that it didn't actually grow into afrog. Hence the original tease for what became Politoed stated Poliwag could now evolve into a frog from a tadpole.

Where is the tail then?
It looks like a cartoon frog, the round eyes on a round head are a dead giveaway for a chibi japanese style or old western cartoon style frog. Poliwag is a tadpole becuase it has a tail. Even the weird inbetween stages of a frog have small tails. Poliwrath has no tail to speak of.
Also pokemon “species” are pure bull. Bidoof is called a mouse.

>>49274782
I don't know what else to tell you except unironically to go and cope.
>>
>>49274979
I guess its pretty poorly designed then if it fails to communicate what it’s supposed to be, should have kept a tail
>>
>>49274782
>>49275035
It's not a real creature you mongoloid, it's a roid-raging mutant because fuck you, that's why. It lost its tail because that makes it ambiguous or mysterious, something that early gen designs clearly championed.
If you want an explanation, then the massive amount of physical training it endured becoming swole stunted its development and it thus traded its potential change into a frog's form for raw strength and bulk.
Thank christ most older Pokémon weren't designed by the creatively bankrupt like you and didn't turn out to be literal animals with nothing unique or interesting about them to differentiate themselves from the real world.
