Poliwrath was and always has been a momma's boy. On account of his sweet nature, he's always had a lot of friends and has never had to fight. He's never really had a spine and even though he's a buff guy now, hates to fight. So going onto Total Pokémon Island he didn't have a leg to stand on.

Total Pokemon Island

Poliwrath started the competition scared out of his wits because he had no idea what to expect. He assumed that everyone was nice, but that's not the way it works when you're competing for money. He started out on Team Regice along with; Azurill, Misdreavus, Glameow, Beldum, Shinx, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Wailmer and Doduo. In Cliff Diving Anyone?, his team was the first to jump off the Cliff and he gladly jumped since he's a Water Pokemon. After his team lost, he admits in the Confessional that he voted for Glameow because she scares him. In The Big Sleep, he joins the three person alliance with; Azurill and Glameow with Glameow as leader. He admits he didn't join because he's evil but she scares him and he doesn't want to get on her bad side. In Dodge Berry, he competes in the second match. He doesn't manage to grab a berry when he has the chance and ends up getting hit by Chingling at the end of the match. In The Scary Outdoors; Luxio orders Poliwag, Cleffa and Igglybuff to gather food for their team. The trio runs into Celebi, who lets them evolve to Poliwhirl, Clefairy and Jigglypuff. They return to the camp with their arms full of berries and happy they evolved. In Pokemon Battle Anyone?; Poliwhirl competes in the last double battle alongside, Eevee. The duo faces off against Houndour and Staravia. They are easily defeated and come in second that challenge. In Are You Scared Now?; Poliwhirl admits his mortal fear is Snake Pokemon. He however manages to conquer his fear and gets a point for his team. In Breaking the Alliance; Poliwhirl becomes a hunter for Regice alongside; Marill, Bronzor, Eevee and Gloom. When him and Marill find Purugly waiting for them, he becomes confused. When Purugly explains he becomes furious, leaving the area and the alliance. Afterwards Poliwhirl is telling his alliance woes to Mismagius and Luxio when Purugly scares him and he accidently shoots his teammates. His team loses and he finds himself on the chopping block with Purugly. Surprisingly he's the one to get the boot. Poliwhirl becomes the 9th camper voted off Total Pokemon Island and ends up in 34th place.
