Porygon-Z is one of the best wallbreakers in the 1v1 metagame, with its Adaptability-boosted Hyper Beams blasting holes through the likes of Zeraora and Dracovish. This set in particular sacrifices some of its obscene power for the ability to survive hits from the faster attacks in the metagame, most notably Fake Out + Grassy Glide from Life Orb Rillaboom. Trick serves the purpose of punishing status moves from the likes of Chansey and Slowbro and used in conjunction with Recover to stall out moves such as Chansey's Seismic Toss. Tri Attack is another STAB move for dealing damage after using Trick against Pokemon that would otherwise KO Porygon-Z during Hyper Beam's recharge turn like Shell Smash Crustle and Porygon2. Porygon-Z struggles with Pokemon that can survive hits and KO back such as Sawk and Assault Vest Urshifu-R, which makes Pokemon such as Sylveon and Primarina good partners. Also, without any attacks to hit Ghost-types, Mandibuzz and Urshifu-S become good partners as well.
