Porygon2 (Japanese: ポリゴン2 Porygon2) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Porygon when traded holding an Up-Grade, and evolves into Porygon-Z when traded holding a Dubious Disc.

Biology

Physiology

Porygon2 looks very similar to its pre-evolution, except that all of Porygon2's edges have been rounded out. The pattern on its chest has also been significantly rounded out, and it looks very similar to a drinking bird.

Gender differences

Porygon2 is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Porygon2 has the same abilities as its pre-evolution, except that Porygon2 is capable of using Defense Curl instead of Sharpen.

Porygon2, and its evolution family, Porygon and Porygon-Z, are the only known Pokémon that learn Conversion and Conversion 2.

Porygon2 has the ability to work in space, due to it not having to breathe. However, it cannot go into space by itself because it cannot fly. This problem seems to have been solved in Porygon-Z.

Behavior

Porygon2 have artificial intelligence. However, they occasionally exhibit strange motions and abilities that were not programmed.

Habitat

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Being a cybernetic Pokémon, it has no need to eat.

In the anime

Porygon2 is the only Generation II Pokémon to never appear in the anime, as well as the only pre-Generation IV Pokémon to not appear in the anime or the movies, not even as a cameo. Popular opinion is that this is because of the incident involving its pre-evolution. However, Porygon had several cameos.

In the manga

Green bought a Porygon in Celadon City. In the GSC saga, it evolved into Porygon2.

In the TCG

Main article: Porygon2 (TCG)

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

When released from a Poké Ball, Porygon2 will immediately use a powerful Tackle attack that sends opponents flying. The attack cannot be escaped due to the speed in which it happens but Porygon2 is harmless once the attack has finished.

Trophy information

Representing the next step in technological progress, this Virtual Pokémon is a higher-powered version of the man-made Pokémon, Porygon. Compared to the sharp edges of its relative, Porygon2's body is extremely smooth and rounded. In battle, it utilizes a special move called Conversion 2 to alter its type.

Trivia

  • Porygon2 is the only Pokémon with a number in its name.
  • It is one of the two Pokémon that's both smaller and lighter than the Pokémon that it evolves from. The other is Bellossom.
    • This may be a reference to computers, which tend to get smaller and lighter over time.
  • It is the only Pokémon that both evolves by trading and needs to be traded to evolve again.
  • In Generation II, it is possible for Porygon2 to have both effects of the move Curse. One is by simply using it to the non-Template:Type2 effect of Curse. The other is by using either Conversion or Conversion 2 to change its type to Ghost and have the Ghost effect of Curse. The other Pokémon that can do this are Porygon, and Smeargle.
  • Of all Pokémon able to evolve, Porygon2 has the highest base stat total with 515.

Origin

Like Porygon, it is based on an origami crane made with 3D computer graphics. The head looks like a duck. It also looks like a Drinking Bird, especially in Pokémon Colosseum where it makes the same movement as one. The change in form by evolution from Porygon to Porygon2 represents the concept of subdivision in 3D computer graphics.

Name origin

Porygon2's name is a mix between polygon and origami. It may also reflect the fact that some Japanese people pronounce their 'L' sounds as 'R' sounds, Porygon being a mispronunciation of polygon. The 2 on its name is because it is the second in its line of evolution, evolving from Porygon.
