Porygon (ポリゴン Porygon) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Porygon is a Virtual Pokémon. It is based on early 3D animation models, and is thus created completely out of polygons. It looks a little like a duck or some kind of bird. The various parts of Porygon's body are colored pink, white, and blue. Its eyes are in the shape of hexagons.

Natural abilities

Porygon can have the ability Trace or the ability Download. Trace copies the opponent's ability. Download increases Porygon's Attack or Special Attack depending on the opponent's defenses. It is the first artificial Pokémon, created by the scientists at the Silph Co. company.

Evolution

Porygon is able to evolve into Porygon2, though only through Trade while holding the Upgrade, and then into Porygon-Z by trading while holding the Dubious Disc.

Appearances

Anime

Porygon 3.png

Porygon appeared in one of the most well-known, banned Pokémon episodes, Cyber Soldier Porygon, which had hospitalized hundreds of viewers, ranging from 3 to 58 years old, that day due to flashing red and blue strobes, causing them to have seizures. Due to the following hiatus, the show skipped 4 months after the episode and it was never aired outside of Japan. It is based on an electronic system operator, and teleports with Ash, Misty, and Brock.

Trivia

  • Due to the episode, "Cyber Soldier Porygon", which caused hundreds of viewers to have epileptic seizures, Porygon has never had another appearance in the anime or in any film adaptation of the series, except for one brief cameo appearance at the beginning of the 2002 movie, Pokémon Heroes, and neither have its evolutions, Porygon2 and Porygon-Z, in an effort to block the traumatizing event from the minds of viewers, even though it was Pikachu (and not even that, but a missile) that caused the seizures with his Thunderbolt.
  • Porygon is the only Pokémon that can be evolved through trading twice.
  • Porygon's evolution line is the only evolution line to have the Basic Pokémon's name throughout the whole line.
  • Porygon is one of the collectable spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
  • Despite its high-tech nature and human origin, Porygon can be found in White Forest rather than Black City.

Etymology

Porygon is based off the mathematical term "polygon". The 'r' comes from the pronunciation of 'l's in Japan. It may also come from "origami" (the Japanese art of folding paper) or "tori" (Japanese for "bird").

Origin

Porygon is based on low-poly computer graphics. It is also stylized after an origami crane.
