 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Porygon 2 is a viable option in both the Under-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling thanks to its usage of Eviolite, which takes its modest Defensive Statistics and makes Porygon 2 into a tank with a lot of firepower. It can also use Trick Room to take advantage of its low Speed. It can also utilize Psyshock to take on Special Walls that try to wall it.
Fighting-Type Pokémon perform well against it, especially if it's lacking any Psychic-Type moves. Any moves or Abilities that can remove its Hold Item can also cripple its defensive capabilities.

A sixth Pokémon is always a pure-Flying Type: Tornadus.
