PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
1 vote

I am playing Pokemon Y and everywhere I look it says I can catch Poliwrath at the beginning of Victory Road by fishing in the water with the super rod. I don't want to just evolve Poliwhirl because I decided I wanted to catch every Pokemon in the game. The longest I've had to look for a rare Pokemon was about 2 hours and I'm on day 3 trying to catch it. I've even managed to catch 2 shiny Poliwhirls in the process. Can someone please tell me if it is in fact there? Thanks!

Unfortunately, yes. The only place you can catch Poliwrath is in Victory Road. Sorry. :(

However, if you decide to give up (xD) the Poliwhirls of Routes 14, 15, 16, 19, 21 and the Pokemon Village waits for you.

Good luck, and hope I helped. :)

Is that just from what you've read or have you actually found one there? I guess my question is more so did anybody find one there?
Well, no. However many sources have confirmed it, it's too viral to say it isn't in Victory Road.
I finally found it!! After 3 days of trying in the first water area in Victory Road and having no luck, I decided to try other water areas and still nothing. Finally, the last possible place to fish before entering the Pokemon League, one finally showed up after only 10 tries.
