Conversion 2 (Japanese: テクスチャー2 Texture 2), formatted as Conversion2 in Generation II, is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It is a signature move of the Porygon evolution family.


Generation II-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, but not either of its current type(s). An example would be if the foe's Pokémon used Thunderbolt in which is an Electric-type move that was the last attack to hit the user's Pokémon, then that Pokémon will change to a Ground-type, Electric-type, Grass-type, or Dragon-type Pokémon.

Generation V on

Conversion 2 now changes the user's type to make it resist the last move the target used, including non-damaging moves.
