Hey, so I was wondering if this is a good pokemon to have in my lineup. I need help deciding what moves to teach him and for someone to explain to me about his evolution trade thing with kings rock. Much Thanks. :happy:

If you were to use Poliwrath a good moveset would be...

Poliwrath@Salac Berry
Belly Drum
Brick Break
Earthquake
Surf/Substitute/Hypnosis

Since its got high defence it works well as a Belly Drummer, and then BB and EQ to make use of the increased attack power and Surf for a STAB attack

when you trade Poliwhirl while holding Kings Rock it evolves into Politoed, and a good moveset for him would be...

Politoed@Salac Berry
Psychic/Rest
Surf
Ice Beam
Hypnosis

Basic Special Sweeper, put them to sleep with hypnosis, Surf for STAB, Ice Beam can be used as a good Dragon counter and the other move is up to you.

Hope this helps...

I'd suggest Belly Drummer Poliwrath too with Substitute........Sub, Belly drum, Salac activates...sweep.

For Politoed it does surprisingly well with a Counter......really catches off those crazy physical sweepers and HP Grass works better than Psychic and Hydro Pump isn't half bad since Politoed's spcl.atk is a little lacking, definitely Leftovers....Politoed has great spcl.def and a trait that screws water attacks and high HP. I like to think of it as a faster Milotic...
