Porygon2 (Japanese: ポリゴン2 Porygon2) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

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

Biology

Porygon2 is a rounded, pink, digital Pokémon that shows similarities to a drinking bird. It has a relatively flat bill and large, round eyes. Its legs are simple ovoid growths along its sides, and its tail widens towards the middle. Its bill, legs, tail, and underside are blue. It was upgraded to work in space, although its inability to fly limits this ability. It is artificially intelligent, and is capable of learning new behaviors on its own. As a result, it will sometimes perform motions or abilities that are not in its programming. It is generally found in computers or in labs and other buildings working with people. Porygon2 and its evolutionary family, Porygon and Porygon-Z, are the only known Pokémon that learn Conversion and Conversion 2.

In the anime

Porygon2 in "World of Pokemon"

Porygon2 appeared in the English dub as stockart in the Johto Pokérap. Porygon2's second appearance in the anime has been a cameo in the "World of Pokémon" opening of Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice, in which every Pokémon from the first five generations (apart from Genesect) appeared. Due to the EP038 incident, Porygon2 has not appeared in an episode of the anime, and it is the only Generation II Pokémon not to appear, as well as the only non-legendary, pre-Generation V Pokémon, along with Porygon-Z, to not appear in the anime.

In the manga

Porygon2 in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Blue's Porygon2

Blue bought a Porygon in Celadon City, which was quite disobedient to its new Trainer, but became an integral part of his team later. Prior to the GSC saga, it evolved into Porygon2 and battled with Silver's Sneasel. It again appeared in the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter, where its ability to integrate itself into any electronic network proved handy in freeing Professor Oak and Green's parents.

In the TCG

Other appearances

Porygon2 in Melee

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 official Pokémon with a numeral in its name.
    • In the Generation II games, it is impossible to return a nicknamed Porygon2 to its species name. This is because the 2 is not available as a character for nicknames.
  • 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-Ghost-type 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.
    • It is also the only evolution introduced after the generation of its pre-evolution that is able to evolve again.
  • Porygon2 is the only one in its evolutionary family to not receive an audible voice despite having a cameo in a game where Pokémon have recorded voices. This also makes it the only one of the first 493 not to have a voice.

Origin

Like Porygon, it is based on a bird made with more advanced 3D computer graphics than the first Porygon. The head looks like a duck. It also resembles a drinking bird, especially in the 3D games, 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 is a combination of polygon and 2. It may also reflect the stereotype that Japanese people pronounce their 'L' sounds as 'R' sounds, Porygon being a mispronunciation of polygon. 2 may be a reference to software versioning, as it is the second "stable release"—an upgraded version—of Porygon.
