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

It evolves from Poliwhirl when exposed to a Water Stone. It is one of Poliwag's final forms, the other being Politoed.

Biology

Poliwrath is a blue, bipedal Pokémon with muscular arms. It has bulbous eyes that protrude from the top of its head. Its belly is covered by a white and black swirl. There appear to be white gloves on its hands, and it has rounded, digit-less feet. It has powerful muscles in its arms and legs that never tire. When it swims, it uses all the muscles in its body, and is able to swim vast distances with minimal breathing. It is even capable of briefly running on the water's surface. Poliwrath, despite being an excellent swimmer, usually lives on dry land near the water's edge.

Trivia

 
Poliwrath's early design, Nyosuka
  • In Generation II and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, a man in Celadon City with a Poliwrath says that he hopes that it will evolve into a frog Pokémon one day. Although the Pokémon he was thinking of is most likely Politoed, it is too late, as it is Poliwhirl, not Poliwrath, that evolves into Politoed when traded while holding a King's Rock.
  • An early design of Poliwrath revealed on Game Freak's official Japanese website circa 1997 depicts it wearing a crown, similar to the King's Rock which is necessary to evolve Poliwhirl into Politoed.
  • Poliwrath shares its category with PoliwagPoliwhirl, and Tympole. They are all known as the Tadpole Pokémon.

Origin

Poliwrath is based on a glass frog. The spiral pattern on its belly is supposed to represent how the organs of these frogs and other tadpoles can sometimes be seen through their transparent skin. It may also be based on amphibian neoteny, as it stays in tadpole form and does not metamorphose into a frog.

Name origin

Poliwrath is a combination of polliwog and wrath (anger).

Nyorobon is a combination of ニョロニョロ nyoronyoro (the sound of slithering) and an alternate reading of 洪  (deluge or flood) is hon (relative to bon).

In other languages

Language Title Meaning

Spain Flag.png Spanish Poliwrath Same as English name
Germany Flag.png German Quappo From Kaulquappe

South Korea Flag.png Korean 강챙이 Gangchaengi From 강 gang and 올챙이 olchaeng'i
Hong Kong Flag.png Cantonese Chinese 大力蛙 Daaihlihkwā Means "Great strength frog" or "Energetic frog"
China and Taiwan Flags.png Mandarin Chinese 快泳蛙 Kuàiyǒngwā Literally "Fast swimming frog"
