Is Sludge Wave really another move that comes together with T-Bolt, Ice Beam and Flamethrower? Because it has practically the same characteristics.

Pretty much. You could call it the poison type equivilant. There are also the moves like discharge, lava plume, and sludge bomb which are slightly weaker, but have a better chance for status. (even the moves psychic and crunch go hand in hand, with a bit weaker base power than moves like thunderbolt, but offer a chance to lower defensive stats.)
