Porygon2 (Japanese: ポリゴン2 Porygon2) is the second Pokémon that Blue had been seen to own in the Pokémon Adventures manga.

History

Red, Green & Blue chapter

As a Porygon

Porygon2 first appeared as a Porygon in A Tale of Ninetales, when Blue bought him from the Game Corner. After Blue lets him out of its Poké Ball it ran away, causing Blue to run into Red. Because of this the two accidentally trade their Pokémon. During the three days that Red has Blue's team he attempts to get them to relax and open up to him, with little success. They later traded back, while keeping the caring attitude that Red installed in them.

In The Art of Articuno, Porygon and Pika successfully surprise attack Koga and knock him out.

Yellow chapter

In The Primeape Directive, Porygon was used to defeat a group of rampaging Mankey and Primeape after using its ability to move through cyberspace to switch from Blue's Pokédex to Yellow's.

In Striking Golduck, Porygon was used as Blue's last resort to fight Agatha's Gengar. Because Gengar would hide in the shadows and attack with Counter, Blue decided to use Porygon's Conversion to turn into a Ghost-type. Porygon was then able to counter Gengar's Counter attack but was unable to get Gengar out of the shadows long enough to land a finishing attack. Blue eventually managed to lure Gengar out of the shadows and had Porygon finish it with Psybeam.

Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

Blue and his Porygon2

Porygon reappeared in Playful Porygon2 where it was revealed to have evolved into a Porygon2. It was used to fight Silver's Sneasel before they were interrupted by Entei.

FireRed & LeafGreen chapter

In Red and Blue Make Purple Opponents, Porygon2 is used alongside Golduck in a double battle against Red and his Snor and Gyara. Gyara starts the battle off with his Ability Intimidate, and Blue responds by having Golduck use Iron Tail and Porygon2 use Tri Attack on Red's Pokémon. Red then has Gyara counter attack with Body Slam on Porygon2, while Snor attacks Golduck with Strength. Gyara next uses Hyper Beam on Golduck, and Golduck uses Dig to hide and avoid further damage. Red counters by having Snor use Earthquake, dealing damage to Porygon2, twice the damage to Golduck due to him being underground, which causes him to faint, and Gyara being unaffected due to him being part Flying-type. As Red celebrates he notices that Gyara had been paralyzed by the effects of Tri Attack. Blue takes the opportunity to switch in Porygon2 for Scizor.

In Once More into the Unown, Porygon2 uses its cyber abilities to enter into the Trainer Tower's computer system "R". Using the Salac Berry Blue gave him it quickly reaches the central nervous system and attacks with Zap Cannon, disabling it. Not long after this "R" recovers and traps Porygon2 with a virtual lock.

Emerald chapter

Porygon2 made its most recent appearance in The Final Battle VII, battling Guile Hideout's stolen Battle Tower Pokémon.

Personality and characteristics

As a Porygon it was originally disobedient and would run away. However after Blue and Red's temporary trade it became more affectionate towards Blue and followed his orders from then on. As it is a man-made Pokémon designed to move around cyberspace, Porygon2 has been in use mainly via Blue's Pokédex as a surprise attack.

Trivia

  • Despite the games stating that the Porygon line is genderless, the Chuang Yi translation of My, My, My Mimic states that Porygon2 is male. This mistake is not present in the VIZ Media translation.
