View Full Version : Poliwrath and politoed



Can't think of a name

I'm training a politoed to use with my poliwrath in double battles. I can't seem to think of any moves that will compliment poliwrath exept Ice beam.
Poliwrath-naughty-item to come soon
Substitute
Focus punch
Hypnosis
surf

But Politoed-calm (?)-item to come
Perish song
ice beam
hypnosis
Psychic
Politoed really has nothing, that is the projected movelist at this point.
Unfortunately I have to say:
-No egg moves
-No IVs or Hidden Powers
-No EVs
-No changing of natures

Good luck and thanks for your help

Poliwrath
-Sub
-Brickbreak/Earthquake
-HPRock/HPGhost/Return
-Hydropump/protect/Hypnosis

Politoad
-Swagger
-Hydropump/Surf
-Icebeam
-Hypnosis/Protect

Make sure Poliwrath is faster so it can lay a sub, and immediately make Politoad Swagger Poliwrath to raise its attack but prevent Confusion with the Sub up. Subpunching really fails in double battles so just use STAB Brickbreak or an Earthquake doing just as much to hit all foes and Politoed protects. Return hits everything earthquake doesn't other than levitate ghosts which both wrath and toed can Hydropump and you know the rest..
