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

Biology

Physiology

Porygon-Z's appearance is similar to that of Porygon and Porygon2, though darker in color when compared to both of them. It has a very smooth appearance much like Porygon2. Its head is not attached to its body and is now upside-down with a slight tilt. It has a blue beak, and yellow eyes with a bull's eye target pattern in them. Its legs now appear to be more wing like, while its tail points downward rather than up. The spot of blue that was located on its chest now goes across the chest, connecting the two wings.

Natural abilities

The programming added to create Porygon-Z was intended to allow it to upgrade into a better Pokémon, but as a result, Porygon-Z began to exhibit odd behaviors and the data used to program it became corrupted, giving it its odd appearance and movements.

Evolution

Porygon-Z evolves from Porygon2. A Porygon2 can only evolve into a Porygon-Z when it is traded while holding a Dubious Disc.

  • Sun

    In order to create a more advanced Pokémon, an additional program was installed, but apparently it contained a defect that makes it move oddly.

  • Moon

    Its program was modified to facilitate extra-dimensional activities, but that led to noticeably strange behavior.

  • Ultra Sun

    Its behavior is noticeably unstable, which is apparently due to the incompetence of the engineer who updated its programming.

  • Ultra Moon

    A faulty update was added to its programming. Its behavior is noticeably strange, so the experiment may have been a failure.

  • Sword

    Porygon-Z had a program installed to allow it to move between dimensions, but the program also caused instability in Porygon-Z's behavior.

  • Shield

    Some say an additional program made this Pokémon evolve, but even academics can't agree on whether Porygon-Z is really an evolution.

Sprites

Appearances

Anime

Porygon-Z managed to appeared in Pokémon Movie 15: Kyurem vs The Sword of Justice in the opening cameo so far.

However in the Kyurem vs The Sword of Justice movie, Porygon-Z managed to appear in the opening for the time ever.

Trivia

  • Porygon-Z is the second non-legendary Pokémon to have the highest base Special Attack (surpassed by Chandelure), and is tied with Alakazam and Volcarona.
  • When Porygon2 evolves into Porygon-Z, two stats become lower: Def. and Sp. Def.
  • Unlike Porygon2 which has gained a smoother body after evolution, Porygon-Z is a failed attempt with lots of faulty codes since its body and head are separated as well as its eyes has become hypnotized-like.
  • It is the first Pokémon containing a character with the A-Z alphabet character set from the Japanese games, which was introduced as a character set that can be entered by the player starting from the generation before its debut.

Origin

Like its pre-evolutions Porygon-Z is based on a drinking bird rendered in 3D graphic software. However, its bizarre appearance, odd behaviors, and erratic movements in game suggest computer glitches caused by the Dubious Disc, or unchecked bugs in need of patching. Its movements may also be similar to a seizure, which Porygon's debut episode is notorious of causing. It's design and shape are similar to that of a scattered Porygon2 (the "spike" on its head is Porygon2's neck, its "arms" are Porygon2's legs, and its "foot" is Porygon2's tail). Given its overall shape and erratic, hyperactive movements, it might also be based on a hummingbird.

Etymology

Porygon-Z and Porigonzetto may be corruptions of 'Porygon-3'. 'Porygon' itself is based on 'polygon', and given the syllables in the Japanese language, the katakana letters that spell Porygon's name are the same as the katakana for polygon. The officially trademarked romanization is however Porygon. A more likely origin comes from the Z-axis, used for 3D shapes, or the fact that Z is the last letter in the Latin alphabet and Porygon-Z is the final evolution of Porygon.
