Until the re-discovery of {{p|Golett}}, {{p|Porygon}} was thought to be the first Pokémon created deliberately. It is the first Pokémon deliberately created using modern technology, as the result of an experiment by the [[Pokémon Lab]] in [[Kanto]]. [[Silph Co.]] possesses a report on the Pokémon, calling it the first "virtual-reality Pokémon." Because it is made up entirely of computer data, it is able to exist in cyberspace. According to some Pokédex entries, there is copy-protection data embedded in the program to prevent illegal reproduction, however as Porygon can be bred using {{p|Ditto}}, this is arguably ineffective. Porygon was developed to work in space, but it lacks this ability until evolving.
Porygon possesses two evolutions, both possible through artificial upgrades. {{p|Porygon2}} evolves from Porygon when it is traded while holding an {{DL|Evolution-inducing held item|[[Up-Grade}}]]. According to some Pokédex entries, it is designed to work in and explore space; despite this, it is unable to reach and explore other planets. Unlike its predecessor, Porygon2 is not limited to what is contained in its program—it is capable of learning.
Porygon2 evolves into {{p|Porygon-Z}} when traded holding a {{DL|Evolution-inducing held item|[[Dubious Disc}}]]. It is a modification of Porygon2, designed for travel between different [[dimensions]]. However, it did not work as planned, so it exhibits erratic behavior.
