Explanation of Set
Porygon2 is an all-purpose defensive pivot that discriminates almost purely by numerical power. Depending on the EVs, it can go toe-to-toe with, or outright defeat, many offensive threats, such as Choice Band Scizor, Tyranitar, Gyarados, Salamence, Hydreigon, and Gengar. The "BoltBeam" combo is essential to maximize offensive presence and especially to deal with threats such as Gyarados and Gliscor in a timely manner. With Trace, Heatran, Jolteon, Chandelure, and Jellicent are also walled. Porygon2's low Speed means that it should try to use Recover at any available opportunity to maximize the impact that it has on the match. The EV spread listed avoids a 2HKO from Salamence's Draco Meteor in sand as well as a 2HKO from Life Orb Cloyster's Icicle Spear, and the rest are dumped into HP and Defense to protect against the numerous physical threats in OU, surviving even Life Orb Haxorus's +1 Outrage.

Porygon2 has two main options for its support move; Toxic is a great option against defensive teams to cripple walls and Calm Mind users, but Thunder Wave is good against offensive teams for crippling switch-ins, creating better match-ups, and giving itself more breathing room to use Recover.
