 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Porygon-Z is a viable option in the Under-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. While it lacks the defenses that Porygon2 has, it more than makes up for it with a staggeringly high Special Attack, which is tied with Alakazam, Darkrai and Volcarona for 13th Highest in the game.
While its Speed maxes out at 306 with a beneficial nature, it still has the right tools needed to be an effective sweeper with a good movepool and not one, but two Abilities that it can use to its advantage. Porygon-Z isn't easy to beat, especially if it has set up with Statistic-boosting moves. Using Haze or forcing a substitution will reset any Statistic changes that it has made will slow those sets down, as will Status Conditions including Paralysis.
