    Statistics Min- Min Max Max+
    HP 85 - 311 374 -

    1st Set: Nasty Plot Sweeper

    Nature: Modest/Timid

    Moveset:
    Nasty Plot
    Tri Attack
    Dark Pulse
    Hidden Power Fighting / Ice Beam / Hyper Beam

    Recomended Ability: Adaptability
    Recomended Item: Leftovers/Life Orb
    Recomended Ev. Spread: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

    A basic Nasty Plot Setup Set. Adaptability is there to double the power of the already stabbed tri-attack and causes lots of damage. Dark Pulse is there, for all those ghost type that try to ruin your fun. The last slot is basically for whatever you hate the most. Hp fighting is an excellent choice against the likes of Tyranitar, Weavile, and pretty much any pokemon weak to fighting. Ice Beam may be more suited for Wi-fi play though, since it offers more coverage and alows Porygon-z to take on the likes of Garchomp, Salamence, Gliscor, and any other pokemon weak to ice type attacks. Hyper beam, is another great move to have on this set, may be alittle risky, but the pay off is excellent. After a NastyPlot with Life Orb, and adaptability factored in Tri attack can Oko a 714 hp/306 sp.def Blissey (Pretty beastly in my opinion). The obvious downside is the revenge kill waiting to happen after blissey dies.

    2nd Set: Choice Specs/Scarf

    Nature: Modest/Timid

    Moveset:
    Tri Attack
    Hp fighting/ T-bolt
    Dark Pulse
    Ice Beam

    Recomended Ability: Download/Adaptability
    Recomended Item: Choice Specs/ Choice Scarf
    Recomended Ev. Spread: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

    Standard Choice Scarf/Choice Specs set. Porygon-Z has decent speed, along with massive sp.atk that makes it a perfect candidate for a Choice User. Choice Specs is recomended with a Timid nature, and Choice Scarf is recomended with a Modest nature. Although, you may not that timid choice scarfed Porygon-z outspeeds scarfed garchomp, which can be a nice surprise to plenty of people. The only difference between moveset and the previous one is the addition of thunderbolt instead of nasty plot. T-bolt will allow for even more coverage, and adds even more tools to porygon-z's arcenary.

    3rd Set: Mixed Sweeper

    Nature: Rash

    Moveset:
    Return
    Nasty Plot
    Tri Attack
    Dark Pulse

    This set is very unique, and can easily catch many people off guard (Specially blissey users). After an adaptabilty boost, combined with life orb, return does about 53% to blissey, which is a 2ko. If you dont like the 10% loss from life orb, you can go for silkscarf, as it has a 50% chance of 2koing blissey, which isnt a bad choice either.

    Recomended Ability: Adaptability
    Recomended Item: Life Orb/ Slik Scarf
    Recomended Ev. Spread: 252 Atk / 40 SpA / 216 Spe


    Other Options:
    Other options include Substitute, substitute can be used as a status blocker, and can furthermore aid in either setting up, or sweeping. Agility is also a good move and can be very handy. A modest natured porygon-z with 48 evs in speed reaches 228 which is an ideal speed, and after agility becomes faster then porygon-z. In addition, hidden power ground is a good surpirse and can have excellent pay off. Hp ground can essentially help in destroying the likes of heatran, metagross, and others weak to ground type moves.


    Counters:
    Probopass and registeel are the two best couters for porygon-z as they resist most of its attacks and both have high special defense (Providing Porygon-z doesn't run Hidden Power Fighting). Blissey is also an excellent candidate, just watch out for mixed return Porygon-z, it can be a pain for blissey. Tyranitar, Metagross, Heatran can also take a hit or two from porygon-z and cause trouble. Spiritomb with pain split and sucker punch and be a pain aswell, just watch out for Nasty Plots on predicted sucker punches, so taunt would be prefered on Spiritomb. Besides the latter, faster foes can come in and do the job due to the fact that Porygon-z is rather fragile.
