    Default Porygon

    I wasn't sure whether to put this in the anime or game section but this has bugged me for a while. If they're not gonna show Porygon or its evolutions in the anime then why did they make 2 new evolutions for it in the games? I would think that they would remove Porygon from future games as well and pretend it never existed but they made 2 evolutions for it. I don't get it.

    Look Forward, Team Rocket!

    Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)

    It's all Pikachu's fault >_<
    But it's evolutions are awesome, especially Porygon-Z 'cause of Sp.Attack.

    I'm also wondering why Porygon family get banned all over the anime, only because of that one problematic episode?
    And yes, that's Pikachu's fault! :|
    I want Porygon back! :|

    Why would they remove something from the games, or not expand on such a relevant in-game pokémon (come on, RGB was all about artificially made pokémon, and gen. II and IV were big on evolutions), just becouse of the anime? The games aren't dependant of the anime at all.

    I think Porygon2 already existed when the episode was aired anyway.

    They didn't even show that episode in the US. They should just get over it, and try not to screw up in the next Porygon episode.

    Porygon is a very popular Pokemon.
    Computer: There's an e-mail message! ... The 3 legendary bird POKéMON are ARTICUNO, ZAPDOS, and MOLTRES. Their whereabouts are unknown. We plan to explore the cavern close to CERULEAN.

    That couldn't have ended well.

    Because the anime is based off the games, not hte other way around.

    Goblins and Saurus and Cheetaurs, oh my!

    Well if they removed porygon from the games there would be massive flame wars and alot of fans would be pissed off.

    But it was all pikachus fault not poor porygon.

    Because the games weren't made to advertise the anime :/

    The games and anime are two entirely seperate entities. The games came first, at any rate, so it's able to do whatever it likes regardless of what's canon in the anime.

    For gaming purposes, most likely.

    Besides, I don't think that PG2 or PG-Z would really fit into an anime episode.

    It was giving Japanese kids seizures so they had to ban it.

    The show was canceled for 4 months, ad was almost permenantly scrapped. It would also just be in bad tastes to show Pory again.

    Animé Porygon? Not in any of our lifetimes, as much as I would like to see a cast member with one of my all-time favorite pokémon ever. Of course, they could've given a Porygon instead of a Lapras away in the Silph arc the animé never did...

    As for the question: animé and games are different. Much different. Only the animé would allow a team with at least two ubers in an official tournament. Porygon is also one of the most logical pokémon to evolve: it's a program which evolves over time. No animé episode is going to stop that.
