Trivia Issue

I'm going to take out the piece of trivia that says, "Poliwrath, along with Lucario, are the only Fighting-type Pokémon able to learn Psychic, not counting Meditite, Medicham and Gallade, as they are part Psychic-type." Since it's like saying, "Apart from Lucario, Meditite, Medicham and Gallade, Poliwrath is the only Fighting-type Pokémon able to learn Psychic,". Basically I think it's just taking a move and ruling out a bunch of other Pokémon just so you can add a bit of trivia. If anyone is REALLY that bothered, they can re-add it later.

Those three Pokémon are exceptions because of the fact they're already Psychic types. They learn it, automatically, due to the typing. Lucario doesn't, nor does Poliwrath. That's why. --PsychicRider 22:38, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Heartgold / Soulsilver

It is available in these version, just evolve Poliwag to Poliwhirl, then use a water stone... why does it say trade? Chomi 11:38, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Default setting. Updated now. If you see any more, feel free to change them yourself. —darklordtrom 08:01, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Trivia ?

Not sure if it's worth putting on the page, but the distance between Poliwrath and Keldeo is greater than any other Pokemon with the same type combination, at 585 Pokemon in between. Swarzide 06:16, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

"All of Poliwrath's Pokédex entries mention swimming except for Crystal." I guess something with the Pacific Ocean too, it's up to the community. Yurtablemoron 05:33, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
