==Biology==
Porygon2 is a rounded, pink, digital Pokémon that shows similarities to a {{wp|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, including information it does not need to know. 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 {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Urban Pokémon|other buildings}} working with people. It can survive in a space vacuum, though cannot move very well in zero-gravity. Porygon2 and its evolutionary family, {{p|Porygon}} and {{p|Porygon-Z}}, are the [[Signature move|only known Pokémon]] that learn {{m|Conversion}} and {{m|Conversion 2}}.

===[[Super Smash Bros. Melee]]===
When released from a {{i|Poké Ball}}, Porygon2 will immediately use a powerful {{m|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.

===Origin===
 
====Name origin====
Porygon2 is a combination of ''{{wp|polygon}}'' and ''2''., It may also reflect the stereotype that Japanese people pronounce theirwith 'L' sounds as Porygon'R' sounds, Porygon being a mispronunciationcorruption of ''polygon''. ''2'' may be a reference to {{wp|software versioning}}, as it is the second "stable release"—an upgraded version—of {{p|Porygon}}.
