Poliwrath is listed as a great counter against many pokemon Rocket Leaders use. I own one hundo (lv20) Poliwrath and three purified Poliwags (lv25) with IVs of 91-93. I also have high level Lucario I use for Rockets already but I find it quite fragile against some movesets while Poliwrath’s typing and bulk can give it an edge in many fights. I have about 1.76 m dust but I’m still reluctant to burn ~200k (candy is not issue) on a pokemon with max CP far less than 3000. So options I consider are:
- Max 100% Poliwrath - it’s HUNDO for god’s sake!
1a. Bring 100% Poli to 2493 to use it in Ultra League later
- Max one of purified Poliwags - higher starting level and 20% less dust to burn including second move cost
2a. Bring one of them to near 2500 for UL
- Leave fighting frogs alone - spend dust on much better stuff (like recently acquired 98% purified Scyther)
What’s community’s verdict?
