After asking a previous question , I realized that Politoed is the only non-Kyogre Pokemon who can get Drizzle, but as a hidden ability. How can I get drizzle without friend safari?

Poliwag does appear in hordes in the Pokemon Village, but Poliwhirl with better stats and chances at a hidden ability can be found in Friend Safaris. If you want a Drizzle Politoed, you'll have to find a Water-type Friend Safari that contains Poliwhirl and catch one whose ability is Swift Swim.

Once you have said Poliwhirl, evolving it to Politoed should have it end up with the Drizzle ability.

  • Poliwag actually does appear in hordes in the Pokémon Village.

You can get Poliwhirl from the Friend Safari if you have a friend who is Water type who has beaten the Elite Four. This will have a good chance of having the hidden ability if you are online at the same time as your friend; a Poliwhirl with Swift Swim will evolve into a Politoed with Drizzle.

As I know from previous experience hidden abilities are only obtainable through hordes, friend safari and breeding. I suggest using a Pokemon with rain dance and use it in a horde of poliwag or whirls and the ones that have swift swim will raise their speed.

  • The fishing provides Politoeds with one of standard abilities (Water Absorb or Damp), which is not Drizzle.
