The current full SC, highlighting any problem areas
Poliwhirl (Water): Poliwhirl are capable of decent movement on land, though they still prefer the water. They secrete a sort of slime when out of the water, which makes them more slippery and harder to grab.

Poliwrath (Water/Fighting): Poliwrath are the best and fastest swimmers of all the Poliwag family, but are just as adept on land as they are in the water. They secrete a sort of slime when out of the water, which makes them more slippery and harder to grab.

The issues with the SC (in bullet points or short paragraphs, if applicable)
It really gives it nothing. Poliwrath is really just stated to be the best swimmer in its line, doesnt make it better than any other biped swimmer. The slime is an alright benefit but it is really just something we tend to chuck on anything that is remotely slimy.

The proposed changes or additions (please do not rewrite the SC yourself)
Poliwhirl and Poliwrath are both known for their fists and have hands that look like boxing gloves, i feel like a 1.1 and 1.2 boost to punching attacks would be quite beneficial without breaking the SC. Even a 1.1 boost to Poliwrath if you dont want to over do it.

Could we give poliwhirl fighting familiarity? We do it for other lines like staryu, grotle etc
