Catch a Poliwhirl with it's Hidden Ability, Swift Swim, in the Friend Safari. Evolve it and you will have a Drizzle Politoed.

That is currently the only method, but when the Pokebank opens on December 27, you will be able to transfer a Drizzle Politoed or its pre-evolutions from a B/W or B2/W2 game.

In the Pokémon Village (below snowbelle city), you can find hordes of Poliwag. There is a chance that one of the Poliwag in the horde will have the hidden ability, swift swim. The easiest way to tell if/which one in the horde has swift swim (the other two abilities are damp and water absorb by the way) is to use a pokémon with a speed stat about 60-80 (average Poliwag lv 25 speed: about 50). The Poliwag will probably all be slower with no rain, so if one of them outspeeds you in the rain (the Poliwag know rain dance, don't worry about that) that one has swift swim.
A hidden ability Poliwag will evolve into a hidden ability Politoed (drizzle).
Just saying there is a way without needing a specific friend code for the safari.
