Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Rock Smash puts Poliwrath into a rare Fighting-type attacker niche, despite being a fairly mediocre fast move. 
  • Bubble is a wonderful fast move, but there are better Water-type attackers out there.
  • Mud Shot lacks STAB and doesn't cover many types that Poliwrath should be attacking into. 
  • Dynamic Punch's small dodge window and quick charge time along with its Fighting typing make it the optimal charge option. Submission is just flat out worse than Dynamic Punch
  • Hydro Pump pairs well with Bubble, but again, there are better Water-type attackers out there.
  • Ice Punch is not a great charge move in a vacuum and lacks STAB to boot.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Rock Smash does slightly more damage on defense than Bubble does, but has lower energy gain.
  • Mud Shot is useless on defense due to its low power.
  • Ice Punch hits many of Poliwrath's counters for effective damage, and it fires frequently due to having 3 bars.
  • Dynamic Punch is a great defensive option with high power, STAB, and 2 bars. Submission is strictly worse.
  • Hydro Pump is a solid move that punishes attackers who fail to dodge, but it fires predictably.

Rating Explanation:

Poliwrath's stats are fine, but its typing is what puts this Pokemon into the tier list. Pokemon GO doesn't have many viable Fighting-types in the game, so Poliwrath ekes out a living doing what Machamp does despite being much less hard hitting. Its advantage is in its notably higher bulk.

On defense, Poliwrath formerly outdid its stats by virtue of Bubble's defensively oriented move parameters. Bubble is now a much different move, and thus Poliwrath is now a much different (i.e., worse) Pokemon on defense.
