Can Poliwrath Learn Both Hydropump and Mindreader in Generation II, Crystal?

0 votes

I've started playing my old Generation II Crystal with a friend who's rivaling me with the original Silver. I know that at Level 51, Poliwhirl learns Hydropump, but at 51 Poliwrath learns Mind Reader. I was hoping to get both so that I could then have an ultra powerful Poliwrath who knows the moves Hypnosis, Hydropump, Mind Reader, and Dynamic Punch, but I don't want to risk Mind Reader for Hydropump when I could settle for Surf, which is still a great move. I'd love to have it all, but that much training just doesn't seem worth the risk, and since the only way to get a Poliwrath is to trade, the game would automatically save. So my question is, if I trade him at Lv 51, just as he's learned Hydropump, will the game still give me the option to teach him Mind Reader when he's been traded?

You're in luck! Poliwrath can learn both of those attacks.

Poliwrath can learn Mind Reader as an egg move. If you don't know how to breed down egg moves, just ask me. :)

As for Hydro Pump, Poliwrath can only learn it as a Poliwhirl at Lv. 51.

Hope I helped. :)
