Porygon2 used Conversion by Yggdrassal

Yggdrassal from the United States is an active part of the Game-Art-HQ Community since around three years now and contributed a good couple of video game artworks that are about games that are rarely getting any attention now.

He participated with a Timesplitters 3 entry as example and Rocket: Robots on Wheels as part of our Nintendo 64 Tribute this year. He joined the Pokémon Gen I Tribute with Dodrio in the first May week already and drew seven more of the little Gen I creatures. He also holds the record of the most submissions for our Gen II Pokemon tribute with not less than 11 of the 100 Pokemon being illustrated by him!

Gen II

Gen I

I recommend to check out his gallery where you can see a lot more video game fan art including more Pokémon love as well. 


“The user changes its type to become the same type as one of its moves.”

Conversion is a signature move of Porygon and a Normal-type attack first introduced in Generation I. It changes the user’s current type to the same type as its opponents which can help greatly when trying to tackle bad type matchups.

The move does not make contact nor does it damage the opponent, and it has a base PP of 30. Porygon2 is currently the only Pokemon in the Tribute that used it.


Porygon2 used Tri Attack by Cortoony

Cortney Gall aka Cortoony joined Game-Art-HQ as an active member from the start in 2017 and participated not only in our Pokemon Generation II Tribute but created also excellent illustrations for our Game Character Database with pretty old characters like Earthworm Jim and Ristar among more.

Have a look at his whole gallery here!


Tri Attack

““The user strikes with a simultaneous three-beam attack. May also burn, freeze, or leave the target with paralysis””

The Tri-Attack is classified as a Normal-Type attack and is available since the first Pokemon games. While it dealt only raw damage to the opponent in the Gen I games it was buffed with elemental status changes in Gen II till today.

There is a 20% chance that it will inflict Paralyze, Burn or Freeze on the opponent. The three-headed Dodrio was the first Pokemon in our Tribute that learned to use the Tr-Attack!

#233 Porygon2

“Even though it doesn’t die in the vacuum of space, it can’t move around very well in zero gravity.”


Porygon2 is a Normal-type Pokemon that evolves from Porygon when traded holding an Up-Grade and can also evolve into Porygon-Z when traded holding a Dubious Disc. It is a man-made Pokemon and an upgraded version of the original Porygon, created to navigate through space.

The Porygon family are the only known Pokemon that can learn the moves ‘Conversion’ and ‘Conversion 2’. It is the only current Pokemon with a numeral in its name.

In the game ‘Super Smash Bros. Melee’, releasing a Porygon2 from a Pokeball will cause it to use a fierce Tackle attack that can knock enemies off the field. It isn’t easy to escape this attack as it is so fast but once the attack is over Porygon2 is rendered useless until returned to its Pokeball.
