Porygon is a Pokémon made completely out of programming code. It has a pink polyhedral body with a blue stomach, blue triangular prism feet, and a blue rectangular prism tail. It has a pink, polyhedral head that ends in a blue beak and has hexagonal eyes. Built into this code is [[Silph Co.]] copy protection [[wp: Digital Rights Management|DRM]], preventing duplication through electronic means. Due to its man-made origins, Porygon does not need to breathe or eat, though it can still accept food if given. It has the ability to convert its body into digital data, allowing it to travel through cyberspace. It was created 20 years ago using the latest technology of its time, so many of its parts hashave since become obsolete.
Porygon has two [[signature moves]] at its disposal. It can change type into one of its own moves{{tt|*|In Generation I, it could instead match its opponent type(s).}} with {{m|Conversion}} or to resist the last move that hit it with {{m|Conversion 2}}. It is also capable of changing its appearance using {{m|Sharpen}}, which is a former signature move. Additionally, Porygon has [[Pokémon Snap|demonstrated the ability]] to change color for camouflage. Because it is man-made, it is generally found in computers or in labs and other {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Urban Pokémon|buildings}} where people work. In 3D games, such as {{g|Stadium}}, it can detach its limbs and head from its torso.
