[SET COMMENTS]

Porygon2 is a great physically defensive option available to Normal teams with the ability to utilize Teleport and check Dragon Dance Dragapult, Mimikyu, and Jirachi, which would all otherwise prove very threatening for Normal. Recover provides Porygon2 with a reliable form of healing for it to continually switch into attacks from Pokemon such as Choice Scarf Excadrill and Mimikyu. Foul Play acts both as a countermeasure for Pokemon like Scizor and Azumarill that would otherwise use Porygon2 as setup bait and as an attacking move to hit other powerful physical threats like Alolan Marowak and Excadrill. Ice Beam gives Porygon2 good coverage to deal with Dragon threats like Hydreigon and Noivern more easily as well as certain other offensive threats like Diggersby and Hawlucha. Toxic allows Porygon2 to wear down defensive Pokemon like Mandibuzz and Gastrodon that may otherwise attempt to switch in. Teleport is another option to be considered, as it allows Porygon2 to bring in frail offensive Normal-type threats like Diggersby, Heliolisk, and Indeedee-M safely and create momentum. Discharge can be an option to run over Toxic as good coverage for hitting Flying- and Water-type threats like Corviknight and Pelipper with a sizable chance to paralyze notable threats for Normal teams such as Calm Mind Keldeo and Bulk Up Urshifu-R, which would otherwise use Porygon2 as setup fodder. Trace is generally the preferred ability due to the potential of copying abilities like Natural Cure from Chansey, Regenerator from Toxapex and Amoonguss, and Intimidate from Krookodile, all of which increase Porygon2's survivability. Maximum investment in HP and Defense with a Bold nature is used to have Porygon2 perform its best as a physical wall against threats like Excadrill and Scizor.


Most if not all Pokemon on Normal appreciate Porygon2's ability to deal with physical threats. Blissey in particular forms an excellent defensive core with Porygon2 due to being especially weak to offensive physical threats. Porygon2 in return appreciates Blissey's role as a special wall to help deal with strong special threats that itself cannot hold off like Kingdra in rain and Volcarona. If Porygon2 is running Teleport, frail offensive threats like Diggersby and Indeedee-M appreciate its ability to bring them in safely without leaving them open to attacks and status moves. Braviary helps Porygon2 deal with hard-hitting threats that have Fighting-type coverage like Heracross and Rillaboom. Porygon2 is especially susceptible to all forms of entry hazards, particularly Toxic Spikes, due to their ability to quickly wear down Porygon2 and reduce its ability of switching into attacks reliably. As a result, Porygon2 along with the entire Normal team appreciates Braviary's ability of keeping hazards off through the use of Defog. Ditto makes for a good partner due to its ability to punish offensive setup sweepers that may use Porygon2 as setup fodder like Belly Drum Azumarill, Swords Dance Excadrill, and Bulk Up Urshifu-S. Ditto and Porygon2 also work well together due to their ability to PP stall Poison and Water teams by copying Regenerator from Pokemon such as Toxapex and Amoonguss. Heliolisk provides Porygon2 with an easier time against Water due to its great ability in Dry Skin for absorbing powerful Water-type attacks from wallbreakers like Dracovish. Bewear appreciates Porygon2's ability to mitigate its low Speed by paralyzing faster Pokemon like Hydreigon and Kyurem with Discharge. Porygon2 in return gains a partner to help deal with Steel- types like Corviknight and Ferrothorn that it would otherwise have a hard time dealing with.

Porygon2 is the premier physically defensive option available to Normal teams. Recover provides Porygon2 with a reliable form of healing for it to continue to switch into attacks. Foul Play acts both as a countermeasure for Pokemon like Scizor and Azumarill that would otherwise use Porygon2 as setup bait and an attacking move to hit other powerful physical threats like Marowak-Alola and Excadrill. Ice Beam gives Porygon2 good coverage in being able to deal with Dragon threats like Hydreigon and Noivern more easily as well as certain other offensive threats like Diggersby and Hawlucha. Toxic allows Porygon2 to wear down defensive Pokemon like Mandibuzz and Seismitoad. Discharge can be an option to run over Toxic due to it being good coverage and having a noticeable chance to paralyze. Teleport is another option to be considered as it allows Porygon2 to bring in frail offensive Normal-type (removed space) threats like Diggersby,(AC) Heliolisk, and Indeedee-M safely. Maximum investments in HP and Defense with a Bold Nature is used to have Porygon2 perform its best as a physical wall.
* Add the importance of Eviolite for Porygon2.
* Add a line to mention the benefits of its abilities.

Braviary helps Porygon2 deal with hard-hitting (Add hyphen) threats that have Fighting-type coverage like Heracross and Rillaboom. due to being hit neutrally by them. Porygon2 also appreciates Braviary's ability of keeping to keep hazards off from wearing it down. (Should emphasize more on Braviary's importance as Defogger since the entire team is weak to Toxic Spikes.) Ditto makes for a good partner due to its ability of punishing to punish special sweepers that may use Porygon2 as setup fodder like Volcarona and Togekiss.
*Add Heliolisk as a teammate on how well it performs against Water.
*Add Bewear as well on how well it performs against mirror.

* ' Recover provides Porygon2 with a reliable form of healing for it to continue to switch into attacks from Pokemon like?.' Give examples, preferably two. You can mention Pokemon like Choice Scarf Excadrill and Mimikyu.

* ' Discharge can be an option to run over Toxic due to it being good coverage and having a noticeable chance to paralyze.' Mention Corviknight as a target for Discharge.

* ' Teleport is another option to be considered as it allows Porygon2 to bring in frail offensive Normal-type threats like Diggersby, Heliolisk, and Indeedee-M safely and create momentum.'

*' Braviary helps Porygon2 deal with hard-hitting threats that have Fighting-type coverage like Heracross and Rillaboom. Porygon2 along with the entire Normal type also appreciates Braviary's ability to keep hazards off from wearing it down. (Should emphasize more on Braviary's importance as Defogger since the entire team is weak to Toxic Spikes.) ' The part which is in brackets here is actually a comment which Perish Song made while doing am qc. Remove brackets and clearly state how Porygon2 is suspectible to all forms of hazards particularly Toxic Spikes which can wear it down quickly and make it unable to switch into attacks reliably and then mention how Braviary support Porygon2 with this.

*' Ditto makes for a good partner due to its ability to punish special sweepers that may use Porygon2 as setup fodder like Volcarona and Togekiss.' Ditto helps with not just special sweepers but physical setup sweepers as well such as revenge killing BD Azumarill, Swords Dance Excadrill, and Bulk up Urshifu to name a few. When you add these examples, then say ditto helps to punish 'offensive setup sweepers' instead of just special sweepers.

* ' Heliolisk provides Porygon2 with an easier time against Water due to its great ability in Dry Skin along with its coverage.' Elaborate how Heliolisk can keep Pokemon like Keldeo in check due to its higher speed stat and mention how dry skin ability is useful against wallbreaker like Dracovish.

* ' Bewear allows for a much easier matchup against the mirror due to its typing in Fighting.' Add how it can be a great win condition in matchup like Dark and Steel too with its Bulk Up set.

"Porygon2 is the premier physically defensive option available to Normal teams. "
- This isn't true, a lot of teams run defensive walls like Chansey and Braviary too, sometimes dropping it for Braviary. Instead just say how it's really physically fat and what it can take on, as well as its ability to Teleport. Dragon Dance Dragapult is a really good example of a threat Porygon2 can take on as Normal teams lose to it otherwise

"Recover provides Porygon2 with a reliable form of healing for it to continue to switch into attacks like from Pokemon such as Choice Scarf Excadrill and Mimikyu. "

Toxic allows Porygon2 to wear down defensive Pokemon like Mandibuzz and Seismitoad that may otherwise attempt to switch in.

- Use Gastrodon as an example over Seismitoad

"Discharge can be an option to run over Toxic due to it being good coverage for hitting Flying- and Water- type threats like Corviknight and Pelipper while also having a noticeable chance to paralyze."
- Name some Pokemon that Discharge can cripple through paralysis, otherwise mentioning the paralysis chance is just dex info. You should also name Keldeo as an example, as paralyzing Keldeo is really nice and if it's Substitute Keldeo then it's the only thing preventing Porygon2 from being used as fodder

- Talk about Teleport before Discharge to reflect the set

"Trace is generally the preferred ability due to the potential of copying abilities like Natural Cure from Chansey, Regenerator from Slowbro, and Intimidate from Krookodile all of which increase Porygon2's survivability. "
- Replace Slowbro with Toxapex and Amoonguss as it highlights how good Porygon2 is against Poison teams that it can PP stall. See: Flossed Over vs. dahli from MPL

- Remove Download

"Maximum investments in HP and Defense with a Bold Nature is used to have Porygon2 perform its best as a physical wall."
- Name some Pokemon it can wall using the investments

"Most, if not all Pokemon on Normal appreciates Porygon2's ability to deal with physical threats. "
- Too vague

Chansey in particular forms an excellent defensive core with Porygon2 due to being especially weak to offensive physical threats. Porygon2 in return appreciates Chansey's role as a special wall to help deal with strong special threats that itself cannot hold off against like Kingdra in rain and Volcarona.
- Blissey deserves a mention, Chansey isn't that weak to physical attackers, but I would definitely highlight it for Blissey. If you'd like to call it out for Chansey, name some Pokemon that can break through Chansey which Porygon2 handles

"Ditto makes for a good partner due to its ability to punish special sweepers that may use Porygon2 as setup fodder like Volcarona and Togekiss. "
- These aren't great examples as Porygon2 cripples both with status. Use Harpp's examples over Volcarona and Togekiss. You could also talk about both Ditto and Porygon2 work together to PP stall Poison and Water teams thanks to their ability to copy Regenerator using Imposter and Trace respectively from Pokemon such as Toxapex and Amoonguss

"Heliolisk provides Porygon2 with an easier time against Water- due to its great ability in Dry Skin for absorbing powerful Water- attacks from wallbreakers like Dracovish high speed stat and coverage to check Pokemon like Keldeo."
- Dracovish's Fisheous Rend is the prime example of a Water attack you'd want Heliolisk for, just thin it down to that

"Bewear allows for a much more favorable matchup against the mirror due to its typing in Fighting. Bewear can also act as a great win condition against Dark- and Steel- type teams using its Bulk Up set."
- Not sure how this relates to Porygon2 specifically, this is moreso what Bewear does in general for Normal. It's better to talk about Porygon2's ability to paralyze fast Pokemon with Discharge to support Bewear's low Speed
