* In Generation II and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, a man in [[Celadon City]] with a Poliwrath says that he hopes that it will evolve into a frog Pokémon one day. Although the Pokémon he was thinking of is most likely {{p|Politoed}}, it is too late, as it is Poliwhirl, not Poliwrath, that evolves into Politoed when traded while holding a [[King's Rock]].
*In [[Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen versions|FireRed and LeafGreen]], a man also in Celadon City with a Poliwrath says that his Poliwhirl evolved into a Poliwrath when he used a water stone
* An [[Media:Nyosuka.png|early design]] of Poliwrath revealed on Game Freak's official Japanese website circa 1997 depicts it wearing a crown, similar to the [[King's Rock]] which is necessary to evolve {{p|Poliwhirl}} into {{p|Politoed}}.
* Poliwrath shares its {{pkmn|category}} with {{p|Poliwag}}, {{p|Poliwhirl}}, and {{p|Tympole}}. They are all known as the Tadpole Pokémon.
