Poliwrath (Japanese: ニョロボン Nyorobon) is a Water/Fighting-type Pokémon that is said to have the same strength as a Machamp.

Appearance

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.

Special 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 Selfdestruct 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.

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 some how connected.
    • This is supported by the fact that in the Mystery Dungeon series that the hero was, on both occasions, a human, and not a Pokémon from the beginning.
