Catch a Special Porygon in Pokémon Black and White

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

You know you want to

Recently we told you all about the updates and improvements to Pokémon Global Link, such as a new Global Trade Station or the Icy Cave area, for just two examples. Now, courtesy of our friends at, you can get yourself a special version of one of the original 'mon.

The special creature that you can claim is Porygon, which comes with the Hidden Ability Analytic and the moves Tackle, Conversion, Sharpen, and Psybeam. To get this cute character, simply login to Pokémon Global Link, select Promotions and then the third entry in the list, 'A Porygon for Your Party!'. On the next screen enter the code PORYEUROGAMERNET, and the little critter will be yours. If you have your copy of Pokémon Black and White set up with your account, the 'mon will appear next time you use Game Sync.

That's it, so dig out that game card and catch Porygon.

Neat, but Porygon-Z's hidden ability of Analytic is not as good as it's standard first ability of Adaptability.

Adaptability is useful for slower pokémon, moving second means getting a 30% attack boost. For Porygon and Porygon-2 this works well.

For Porygon-Z though, which is quite a fast pokémon it will perform better with Adaptability, which increases the Same Type Attack Bonus of a move from 1.5x to 2x (making Normal type attacks much stronger)

Analytic might be a good ability for Porygon-2 however, which becomes a viable pokémon when equipped with an Eviolite.

Not really worth it, even if it is free, I have enough pokemon already.
I don't want to catch'em all

About time really, Porygon is a tough Pokemon to catch, in part because - with exception of Platinum, you had to go for the Trophy garden last gen, or play at Celadon Game Corner in Johto.

Doesn't help matters that Porygon usually is treated like the Pokemon Game Freak want to forget after the infamous sezure event. All the same, I'll hop on dream world in a bit to nab one



RupeeClock said:

The way the anime is treated is quite different from the games.
The porygon line aren't ever shunned in the games, it's the anime that's afraid to feature them, the same way that the anime will not ever feature the moves Earthquake, Fissure and Magnitude due to how earthquake prone Japan is.

Anyhow Celadon Game Corner wasn't even that tough. if you know what you were doing, it was easy to keep hitting Jackpots.

code doesn't work for USA site.then again I should've known, seeing as the word EURO is in the password and the promotion says its on ign anyway

edit: USA code is IGNPORYGON



FriedSquid said:

Eh, I guess I'll get it on the site but I'll just kinda leave it there for a few months until I decide to transfer it. Maybe years, who knows.

I lost interest in pokemon from all this GET THIS LIMITED SO AND SO!!!,they come out to places where I don't even live near.



Shotgunryugan said:

A bit...slow eh?
I got this a couple of days ago,shame i can't evolve it because it's one of those trade only evolutions with an item and you have to do this 2 times in order to get the evolutions >.>



sinalefa said:

I got mine courtesy of IGN. I can evolve it as I have both necessary items and I want both evolutions. A friend of mine can help me with those trades.

This also helped me to log back in Pokemon Dream World and realize that there are some new zones and minigames now.

@RupeeClock Then just breed it with a Ditto until you get one with the Adaptability ability. Also, Ash's Phanpy has used Earthquake, while both A.J.'s Sandshrew (from Episode 8) and Ash's Tauros have used Fissure.

@undead_terror They don't do that anymore. Almost everything is given away over wi-fi (may or may not include the Dream World) now.

By the way, the North American Porygon has been available for over a week now, and you can also get a Porygon 2 Pokédoll for your Dream World house and a Porygon-Z C-Gear skin.



Phle said:

Oh, I went on Global Link and got one right away! But then I also found out my berries where stolen because I had been away from dream world for more than 100 days. That was mean. Last time I tried to log on it said "under maintenance until some date (more than two weeks after that day)".



AntiGuy said:

I'm not even gonna bother... if it was a shiny Porygon, now that's a whole different story.



Contrary said:

@Phle yeah they converted our berries to DW points. I think it is better because now I can get DW Poliwags with drizzle and really good DW Pokemon! Don't forget you get to keep 1 of each berry though! They did not delete them all!
