Poliwhirl can have the abilities [[Damp]] and [[Water Absorb]]. Water Absorb allows Poliwhirl to recover 1/4 of the HP the attack would perform if the attack is a {{type|Water}}-type. Damp prevents opponents [[Selfdestruct|self-destruction]]. It is capable of living in or out of water; in order to live out of water, it must sweat to keep itself slimy. It prefers to live underwater in ponds where there is less danger. In battle, it uses the spiral shape on its belly to put the foe to sleep. It does this by subtly undulating the spiral, causing drowsiness and eventually sleep. It is also capably of easily escaping the grasp of foes due to its greasy skin.
