PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Lock-On + Tri-Attack* 

Lock-On features the best energy generation in the game, and is recommended to fuel Porygon-Z's very expensive Charge Moves.

Tri-Attack is mandatory due to its lesser energy cost, though it is limited to Elite TMs and Community Day events. Porygon-Z suffers from the lack of a cheap Charge Move option; with the exception of its Communtiy Day move, all of its Charge Moves cost at least 70 energy, which is absurdly slow. Any combination of its Charge Moves alongside Tri-Attack can be chosen depending on desired coverage.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1 / 5

Porygon-Z doesn't have any real use in PvP. High offensive stats result in poor bulk in Great League. while a highly inefficient moveset can result in excessive overkill damage, or fainting before being able to land a charge move. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

At first glance, a mono-Normal typing may seem appealing when considering the frequent usage of Ghost-types in this league. While it definitely can be a perk against Ghost-types using only Ghost-type moves, this is mostly the only niche that Porygon-Z has going for it. 

Master League: 0 / 5 

Porygon-Z has a max CP of 3266 at level 40, which lacks behind many of the powerhouses in Master League. More importantly, its moveset problem is still its main drawback. While Porygon-Z can pick up some matchups in an even fight, its performance drops significantly if the opponent commits both shields.
