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.
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 -type move instead of taking damage while Damp prevents the use of Selfdestruct or Explosion. Swift Swim raises Poliwrath's speed in the rain.
