Poliwrath River (Japanese: ニョロボンリバー Nyorobon River) is a dungeon in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon that is located on the Water Continent. It is unlocked after completing Nectar Meadow. During Lillipup's Connection Orb mission, the stairs behind the locked door can be accessed, which lead to Headwater Hollow.

The first time the player and their partner visit it is after Ampharos leaves Serene Village without his Connection Orb in Chapter 6. There is a boss battle on the first visit.
