Poliwrath (Japanese: ニョロボン Nyorobon) is a Water/Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Poliwrath appears to have a blue round shaped body with a white belly and a black spiral on it. It also appears to have white fists and its pupil grow smaller than its pre-evolutions.

Natural abilities

Poliwrath may have the abilities Water Absorb or Damp or the hidden ability Swift Swim. Water Absorb restores a little of Poliwrath's HP when hit by a Water-type move instead of taking damage. While Damp prevents the use of Self-Destruct or Explosion. Swift Swim raises Poliwrath's speed in the rain.

Evolution

Poliwrath is the evolved form of Poliwhirl by use of a Water Stone. It is one of the final evolved forms of Poliwag.

Trivia

  • Poliwrath, along with Lucario are the only non-dual typed Fighting/Psychic and still have Fighting as a type to learn Psychic.
  • Poliwrath is the first Pokémon in the National Pokédex to evolve from a Water Stone.
  • Poliwrath's Pokédex entries state the Pacific Ocean which means that the Pokémon Universe and the real world are somehow connected.
  • Poliwrath's shiny has been the same from Generation III to Generation VII, but in Generation II, it had teal skin instead of green skin.
  • In Generation II, there is a man with a Poliwrath that says he wishes his Pokemon evolves into a frog Pokemon. This is an error since Poliwrath is both a frog Pokemon and also already fully evolved.
