Porygon2 (ポリゴン2, Porygon2) is a Pokémon.

Origin[edit]

Porygon2 is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #233 as the "Virtual Pokémon". It is obtained by trading a Porygon that is holding an Up-Grade, and, starting with Generation IV, can evolve further into Porygon-Z by being traded while holding a Dubious Disc.

Tackle is a Normal-type move with 40 base power and 100% accuracy (35 and 95% before Generation V, 50 and 100% from then until Generation VI) and no added effects. It is a very basic move which consists of a simple charge against a single opponent, and it is part of the starting moveset of many Pokémon, including Porygon2, in all games.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

Porygon2 uses Tackle as its attack, much as the original Porygon did in SSB's Saffron City. Once released, Porygon2 will instantly dash a short distance horizontally then disappear. Any character that makes contact with Porygon2 when it's moving will take 25% damage and a huge amount of horizontal knockback; surprisingly, targets are sent in the opposite direction Porygon2 launched itself. This attack is an exceedingly powerful semi-spike, capable of KO'ing characters as low as 25%, and for some situations can be equally difficult to recover from. Combined with the blinding speed of the attack, Porygon2 is arguably the most dangerous non-legendary Pokémon in the game.

Trophy[edit]

Porygon2 features as a collectible trophy, unlocked as one of the 100+ trophies that can be collected randomly during normal play, such as in the Trophy Lottery and throughout the various Single-player Regular Matches.

Representing the next step in technological progress, this Virtual Pokémon is a higher-powered version of the man-made Pokémon, Porygon. Compared to the sharp edges of its relative, Porygon2's body is extremely smooth and rounded. In battle, it utilizes a special move called Conversion 2 to alter its type.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

Porygon2 is mentioned in Porygon-Z's trophy description.

Trivia[edit]

  • Meowth, Electrode, and Porygon2 are the only non-Legendary or Mythical Poké Ball Pokémon to have no spoken voice lines.
    • Due to it never appearing in the anime, Porygon2 makes a unique sound effect when summoned that is never heard anywhere else in any Pokemon-related media.
