Welcome to Generation Preparation, Trainers! In this article, we'll look at the Virtual Pokémon, Porygon-Z. Let's jump into it.
CATEGORY: Virtual Pokémon
PRONOUNCED: POR-ee-gon ZEE
HEIGHT: 2' 11"
WEIGHT: 75 lbs.
MAX CP: 3072
Porygon-Z is the evolved form of Porygon2. In the main-series games, Porygon2 needs an item called the Dubious Disc to evolve into Porygon-Z. It's unknown if Niantic will add this item for Porygon-Z, but we wouldn't be surprised if they did.
PLACE IN THE META: The Normal-type is not a very useful type, as it is not super-effective against any other type. With that in mind, Porygon-Z may not be as useful as it could be. However, its Attack stat is respectable, meaning it could prove to be a good DPS counter.
Porygon-Z is a pure Normal-type. This means it is highly-resistant to Ghost-type attacks, and weak to Fighting-type attacks.
LIKELY MOVEPOOL: Out of the Fast Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Porygon-Z:
Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Porygon-Z:
Should Niantic add any new moves, the following are good candidates for Porygon-Z's movepool:
LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 4, Porygon-Z gains no evolution, exclusive Z-Move, or Mega Evolution.
Thanks for reading, Trainers!
