Tympole is a round, tadpole-like Pokémon with a tan, circular face. It has large, oval, black eyes, a wide mouth with down-turned corners, and black eyebrows in the shape of quarter notes. Its spherical body is black with no visible limbs. Instead, it has two black-and-blue ringed half-spheres on either side of its head. These spheres are vibrated to create a sound too high-pitched for humans to hear. The sounds are used in rhythm to communicate with others of its kind, particularly for warning of danger. It has a long, blue tail with a fan-like shape and a black spot at its base. The animedemonstrates that Tympole swims and attacks in groups.
- Tympole shares its species name, the Tadpole Pokémon, with Poliwag, Poliwhirl, and Poliwrath.
- Tympole's face has become a phenomenon on the popular Japanese online artist community Pixiv.
- Although it is simulated as swimming in Pokédex 3D, Tympole does not display the bubbles effect that all other Pokémon simulated in an aquatic environment, such as Eelektrik and Stunfisk display. The reason for this is unknown.
