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

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

(Specifics may differ in past games. Refer to Game data→Evolution data for more details.)

Biology

Porygon2 traveling through cyberspace in Pokémon Adventures

Porygon2 is a rounded, magenta, artificial 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.

Porygon2's evolution from Porygon was the result of it being upgraded from the most cutting-edge technology available. It was upgraded to work in space for planetary devolvement reasons, although its inability to fly limits this ability. It is artificially intelligent and capable of learning new behaviors on its own, including information it does not need to know. It can also speak a strange language only other Porygon2 can understand. 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. It can survive in a space vacuum, though cannot move very well in zero gravity. In ancient Hisui, people were confused about Porygon2 and its evolutionary relatives due to them arriving through space-time distortions and being the product of far more advanced technology than what was available at the time.

Porygon2 and its evolutionary relatives are the only known Pokémon capable of learning the moves Conversion and Conversion 2. Additionally, prior to Generation V and in Generation IX, Porygon2 and its evolutionary relatives are the only known Pokémon that could have Download as an Ability.

Evolution

Porygon2 evolves from Porygon and evolves into Porygon-Z.

In the anime

Porygon2 in the "World of Pokémon" opening of Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice

Porygon2 made its unofficial anime debut in the English dub via stock art in the Johto Pokérap.

Porygon2's lone physical appearance was in Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice's "World of Pokémon" opening, which featured every Pokémon from the first five generations revealed to that point.

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. Along with its evolved form, Porygon-Z, it is also the only Pokémon prior to Generation VIII that is neither Legendary nor Mythical to not appear in an episode of the anime.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Main article: Blue's Porygon2

In Forretress of Solitude, the Pokémon Association used a Porygon2 to test Red to become Viridian City's Gym Leader.

In Playful Porygon2, it was revealed that Blue's Porygon evolved into Porygon2, as it battled with Silver's Sneasel.

In Weavile Wobbles But It Won't Fall Down, a Roughneck's Porygon2 was at the Safari Zone.

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.

Evolution data

Porygon2 evolves from Porygon when traded while holding an Upgrade, and evolves into Porygon-Z when traded while holding a Dubious Disc. Porygon cannot evolve into Porygon2 in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen until the player obtains the National Pokédex, as its evolution will be interrupted. Porygon also cannot evolve into Porygon2 in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, as Porygon2 is not present in those games. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Porygon2 evolves from Porygon when exposed to an Upgrade, and evolves into Porygon-Z when exposed to a Dubious Disc.

Trivia

  • Porygon2 is the only Pokémon with a numeral in its name.
    • In the Generation II games, it is impossible to return a nicknamed Porygon2 to its species name, because numbers are not available for nicknames.
  • Porygon2 is the only non-fully evolved Pokémon that evolves into and from another Pokémon by trading.
    • Furthermore, Porygon2, Chansey and Dipplin are the only non-fully evolved Pokémon that evolve from another Pokémon through the use of an item.
  • Porygon2 is the only member of its evolutionary family that has not received an anime voice, as Porygon's voice was heard in EP038 and the Who's That Pokémon? segment for A Way Off Day Off, and Porygon-Z was given an anime voice for its appearance in PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure.

Origin

Porygon2 seems to be based on a bird or paper crane that has been rendered using computer software. The head-tipping motion it displays in some games is reminiscent of a drinking bird toy. Its rounder body compared to Porygon may represent the concept of subdivision in 3D computer graphics. As an upgraded version of Porygon, it may also reference software versioning. The fact that it's lighter than its previous form my be based on optimization. Its Pokédex entries imply a connection to artificial intelligence and robotic spacecraft.

Name origin

Porygon2 is a combination of a corruption of polygon and the number 2 (since it is the second stage in its evolutionary line).
