Rock check

Terrakion @ Choice Band
Ability: Justified
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Close Combat
- Stone Edge
- Earthquake
- Quick Attack

Outspeeds, 2HKO's. Porygon2 can't really touch Terrakion even after the special defense drop besides hoping for Paralysis. Terrakion needs very little previous damage to OHKO.

252 Atk Choice Band Terrakion Close Combat vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Porygon2: 302-356 (80.7 - 95.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Normal Check

Chansey @ Eviolite
Ability: Natural Cure
EVS: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
-Toxic
-Seismic Toss
-Soft-Boiled
-Heal Bell

Switches in, poisons it with Toxic and out-stalls it with that and Seismic Toss. If P2's Toxic is too much, Chansey can just switch out. If it paralyzes Chansey with Discharge, it's got no chance of killing it at all.
0 SpA Porygon2 Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Eviolite Chansey: 17-21 (4.7 - 5.8%) -- possibly the worst move ever
0 SpA Porygon2 Discharge vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Eviolite Chansey: 16-19 (4.4 - 5.3%) -- possibly the worst move ever
 

Day Healer

formerly .Rawr!
Grass counter
@ Leftovers
Ability: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
- Gyro Ball
- Leech Seed
- Protect / Thunder Wave
- Stealth Rock

Not sure if this is the right EV spread, but Cradily is usually the SpD wall on grass, so i did ferrothorn full physical wall. Anyways it uses Porygon like setup fodder for rocks or Leech seed.

0 SpA Porygon2 Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Ferrothorn: 60-71 (17 - 20.1%) -- possible 7HKO after Leftovers recovery

Ability: Technician
EVS: 248 HP / 44 Atk / 16 Def / 200 SpD
Impish Nature
- Bullet Punch
- Knock Off / Superpower
- Sword Dance
- Roost

This isn't the Foul Play porygon variant, so mega scizor wins even with a paralysis.

0 SpA Porygon2 Discharge vs. 248 HP / 200 SpD Mega Scizor: 50-59 (14.5 - 17.2%) -- possible 6HKO


Dark counter

@ Leftovers
Ability: Synchronize
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD

Rawr and iLlama, This time i'll let it slide, but next time please make sure you read the rules before posting.
 
Psychic check if you don't want to run mega medi over mega gardevoir.

Hoopa-Unbound @ Choice Specs
Ability: Magician
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
- Psyshock
- Dark Pulse
- Focus Blast

Ok, specs hoopa can be a great wallbreaker for psychic. Let me show you the calcs
252+ SpA Choice Specs Hoopa Unbound Focus Blast vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Eviolite Porygon2: 366-432 (97.8 - 115.5%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO

Well let me guess, you like to switch in your pink lil chansey,
252+ SpA Choice Specs Hoopa Unbound Focus Blast vs. 4 HP / 252 SpD Eviolite Chansey: 270-318 (42 - 49.5%) -- 87.5% chance to 2HKO after Stealth Rock
Obviously, nothing switches and ofc hoopa takes nothing
0 SpA Porygon2 Ice Beam vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Hoopa Unbound: 54-64 (17.9 - 21.2%) -- possible 5HKO and if it is paralysed, it isn't a big deal as it has already done its job breaking the core.
 
Keldeo @ Choice Specs
Ability: Justified
EVs : 4 Def / 252 Spatk / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Secret Sword
- Hydro Pump
- Icy Wind
- Focus Blast

Pretty simple normal breaker, Focus Blast ohkos physical walls like P2 and Bulkyraptor and Secret kills Chansey and everything else. Focus also has a nice roll to ko MPidgeot when Secret won't so if they are trying to mega on Keldeo that's usually another free kill. All in all an ass pokemon to face for normal since it gets a kill every time it comes in.

252 SpA Choice Specs Keldeo Focus Blast vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Eviolite Porygon2: 408-482 (109 - 128.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Dragon check.



Haxorus @ Choice Band
Ability: Mold Breaker
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Outrage
- Poison Jab
- Superpower
- Earthquake

Choice Band Dragonite? Not only it's too simple and obvious, but Porygon2 also Traces Multiscale from Dragonite, effectively living its assaults if Stealth Rock is not on the Normal's side. So...

Take a look at the mighty Choice Band Haxorus. Sporting 13 more base Attack and Mold Breaker, which is not very dangerous to let Porygon2 Trace it, Haxorus is the best wallbreaker a Dragon user can find to take on that one half of the notorius Dual Eviolite core of Normal.

252+ Atk Choice Band Mold Breaker Haxorus Superpower vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Porygon2: 244-288 (65.2 - 77%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Porygon2 @ Eviolite
Ability: Download / Trace
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk / 30 SpA / 30 Spe (If HP Fire) OR IVs: 0 Atk (If Not HP Fire)
- Recover
- Toxic / Thunder wave
- Ice Beam
- Hidden Power [Fire] / Discharge / Foul play

Most obvious switch in of all.

252 Atk Teravolt Kyurem-B Outrage vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Porygon2: 124-147 (33.2 - 39.4%) -- 100% chance to 3HKO
252 SpA Teravolt Kyurem-B Ice Beam vs. 248 HP / 4 SpD Eviolite Porygon2: 97-115 (26 - 30.8%) -- guaranteed 4HKO

If you can get the Toxic off you can outstall it or if you don't Twave it to leave the Scarf crippled and you can finish it with stuff like Diggersby.
But it was probably known Porygon2 is a dragon mono's worst enemy.

Note: I know that I used 252 SpA Kyurem-B in the calc but this is to illustrate that even with 252 SpA this Porygon2 is a switchin for it's Special attacks :p

Ability: Download / Trace
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk / 30 SpA / 30 Spe (If HP Fire) OR IVs: 0 Atk (If Not HP Fire)
- Recover
- Toxic / Thunder wave
- Ice Beam
- Hidden Power [Fire] / Discharge / Foul play

Most obvious switch in of all.

252 Atk Teravolt Kyurem-B Outrage vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Porygon2: 124-147 (33.2 - 39.4%) -- 100% chance to 3HKO
252 SpA Teravolt Kyurem-B Ice Beam vs. 248 HP / 4 SpD Eviolite Porygon2: 97-115 (26 - 30.8%) -- guaranteed 4HKO

If you can get the Toxic off you can outstall it or if you don't Twave it to leave the Scarf crippled and you can finish it with stuff like Diggersby.
But it was probably known Porygon2 is a dragon mono's worst enemy.

Normal Check (Counter without Iron Head hax ?)



Audino @ Audinite
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 208 Def / 48 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Calm Mind
- Dazzling Gleam
- Wish / Rest
- Protect / Sleep Talk

This thing is a really great thing to have against Dragon anyway. And a fine check or even Counter (But I'm too afraid to call it that because Iron head has finched me way too much in the past).
And course if you are still regular Audino you don't even care about Iron head.

Best nieche is the immunity to Dragon so it provides a fright for other things on the team such as Band Outrage Dragonite that will think twice before spamming Dragon moves.

Outrage:
252 Atk Teravolt Kyurem-B Outrage vs. 252 HP / 208+ Def Audino: 198-234 (48.2 - 57%) -- 90.2% chance to 2HKO
You can usually switch your regular Audino in on an Outrage too and Mega + Heal.

Iron Head:
Mega: 252 Atk Teravolt Kyurem-B Iron Head vs. 252 HP / 208+ Def Mega Audino: 136-160 (33.1 - 39%) -- 99.8% chance to 3HKO
Regular: 252 Atk Teravolt Kyurem-B Iron Head vs. 252 HP / 208+ Def Audino: 89-105 (21.7 - 25.6%) -- 0.5% chance to 4HKO

Ice Beam:
Regular: 252 SpA Teravolt Kyurem-B Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Audino: 159-187 (38.7 - 45.6%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
Mega: 252 SpA Teravolt Kyurem-B Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Mega Audino: 114-135 (27.8 - 32.9%) -- guaranteed 4HKO

And this becomes less if you Calm mind.

Note: I know that I used 252 SpA Kyurem-B in the calc but this is to illustrate that even with 252 SpA those two are switchins for it's Special attacks :p

Note2: I personally use 252 Def Audino-M But this spread is the Defensive CM Spread in the calculator so I used that.
you can only submit one Pokemon from Tuesday to Friday.
 
Defensive Chansey


Defensive Chansey easily tanks two Outrages, and you can either toxic stall or just go ahead and use Counter for a guaranteed kill.

252 Atk Teravolt Kyurem-B Outrage vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Chansey: 318-375 (45.1 - 53.2%) -- 33.2% chance to 2HKO

252 Atk Teravolt Kyurem-B Iron Head vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Chansey: 141-167 (20 - 23.7%) -- guaranteed 5HKO

252 Atk Teravolt Kyurem-B Fusion Bolt vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Chansey: 177-209 (25.1 - 29.6%) -- guaranteed 4HKO

4 SpA Teravolt Kyurem-B Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Eviolite Chansey: 73-87 (10.3 - 12.3%) -- possible 9HKO
