Exclusive Move: Tri Attack

If you evolve your Porygon2 between 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. (local time), Porygon-Z will learn the Community Day Exclusive Move Tri Attack, a Normal-type Charge Attack!

Note: You’ll be able to obtain the Exclusive Move up to 2 hours after boosted spawns end

Below, you can find Tri Attack stats, as well as a brief analysis of how Tri Attack Porygon-Z performs in both PvE and PvP.

Tri Attack PvE Analysis

Porygon-Z with Tri Attack in PvE is not that relevant. Tri Attack is extremely powerful, but, and this is a HUGE but, its Normal-type classification make it useless amongst pretty much everything. Normal-type moves are super-effective against nothing, and chances are you will have something in your arsenal that can our damage the neutral damage Tri Attack will dish out.

Tri Attack PvP Analysis

Tri Attack Porygon-Z in PvP suffers from the exact same problem it has in PvE. Normal-type moves are not super-effective against anything. It also has three other existing Charged Moves, that while they will take longer to use, will deal out that super-effective damage if used properly.

DECODER RING NEEDED

Let’s face it, this Community Day is all about the shiny Porygon family. With the Community Day Exclusive Move having no real significance in the meta, the new shiny entries to your shiny dex are the main draw. There is no mega evolved for this family either, so shiny hunting and XP will be your go to’s.
