Reason: If the user has 2 types, can the user become one of those two types?

Conversion 2 (Japanese: テクスチャー２ Texture 2), formatted as Conversion2 prior to Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It is one of the signature moves of Porygon's evolution family.
Generations II to IV
Conversion 2 will randomly change the user's current type to a type that either resists or is immune to the type of the last damaging move it was hit by. Conversion 2 will not change the user to either of its current types.
For example, if the last move the user was hit by was an Electric-type move, the user will become Ground-type, Electric-type, Grass-type, or Dragon-type.
Conversion 2 targets the user.
Generation V on
Conversion 2 now targets an adjacent Pokémon. It will randomly change the user's current type to a type that either resists or is immune to the type of the move last used by the target, including status moves. Conversion 2 will not change the user to its current type. In an Inverse Battle, Conversion 2 considers resistances based on inverse type matchups.
For example, if the last move the target used was an Electric-type move, the user will become Ground-type, Electric-type, Grass-type, or Dragon-type.
If the last move the target used was a move that calls another move (such as Nature Power), the type of the called move will be considered. If the last move the target used is a move that can change type, the type it was changed to will be considered. If the last move the target used had its type changed, such as with Electrify or Normalize, the type it changes to will be considered. Conversion 2 will fail if the last move the target used was Struggle or if there is no type that resists that move (such as a Normal-type move in an Inverse Battle).
Conversion 2 is not affected by Substitute, Protect, Detect or Spiky Shield, but it is blocked by Crafty Shield.
