Porygon Z (ポリゴンZ) is the 194th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Normal-Type, and is known as the Virtual Pokémon.

A Porygon2 that used the Trace Ability will instead have the Adaptability Ability, an Ability that increases the Same Type Attack Bonus that it receives from 50% to 100%; or Download, which increases either its Attack or Special Attack depending on whether the opponents' Defense or Special Defense is lower. A third Ability is available to Porygon-Z from the Dream World, the Analytic Ability. This Ability increases the power of its Attacks by 30% if it moves last on any given turn.

Porygon can evolve into Porygon2 if it is traded while holding an Upgrade, and can evolve into Porygon-Z if traded while holding a Dubious Disc.

Porygon-Z is in the Mineral Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Porygon-Z One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] 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.
