    I believe, from someone who's username is based on this pokemon, that's quite a biased view.

    Although he's certainly not as good as porygon-XYZ says, he's better than others may believe. With a scarf, his speed problems are generally solved, and he can do a lot of damage with his high sp.atk and great movepool, especially if you bring him in on something that's not very specially defensive. However, although he's great in RU, I'd steer clear of him in OU

    That's exactly it. If you want to be viable in OU, you pretty much need to be Scarfed, which makes you really predictable because I can swap to somebody resisting/immune to whatever I expect you to use on me.

    Not necessarily, you can Agility on something that doesn't threaten you and sweep with nearly unresisted coverage.

    It's interesting, because of the niche it has you would think this would still be a member of the Borderline Club...but because of the tame speed it can be revenge killed so easily...

    I blame Conkeldurr for most of this, Mach Punch STAB pretty much murders Porygon-Z, even though one hit from Tri Attack would probably OHKO it in return after a Nasty Plot. Although...if someone Baton-passed boosts to it, I have a feeling it would be a force to be reckoned with.

Download and Adaptability makes him a beast, and with a modest nature, a Nasty Plot boost, and a life orb, he can OHKO the standard Blissey! In fact, replace life orb with Normal Gem, and you have around a 20% chance of defeating 4/252spd Chansey! Quite some power indeed. If I had a cookie for everytime Porygon-Z KOed something, I'd have 405 cookies. I mean, he's not THAT great, but he IS THAT powerful. He's a fun poke' to use.:P
    I'm not sure if you were saying to use Nastly Plot and Agility on the same moveset but there's no way it would survive long enough to get a Nastly Plot and Agility up.
