    IS this card broken or what?? Two powers and no attacks, it of course can access Poryon Z attacks.

    1st power - Come into play and discard all of your opponents special energy cards attached to all of their Pokemon

    2nd Power. Once during your turn take any two cards out of your deck, shuffle your deck and place those two chosen cards back on top of your deck.

    A double smooth over pokemon with a potentially devastating coming into play power, can anyone afford not to run this card in your deck when it is here in our game?

    Point #1 good luck using your Magcargo in this years CC's. Point #2 Porygon Z X gets two smooth overs at once. So from 4 cards in your deck, each turn for one bench space you get the same result that Magcargo needed 4 cards in your deck and two bench spaces to accomplish.

    Porygon Z Lv. X is nice and all, but it's virtually a Stage 3. Unless its lower stages have main-attacker potential, I don't see it being a big time card.

    It is a Porygon you know it can't fight. No this is purely set up. But If you are ahead and you are getting hurt by scrable energy, this could end your opponents comeback ability

    That's the Porygon-Z. Adding the level X on top of that and using Lake Boundary or some such seems workable to me.

    It´s good but not really broken. good luck gettting him out with fighting weakness and a stage 3 while other decks are running much faster then you. But I like it and want to try it out.
    Oh and it has 2x weakness to gallade and lucario so that also makes it worser.

    If you didn't have to evolve Lv.X as your active he would be ah-mazing but with the mandatory active thing it is just bad.

    Doesn't Porygon 2 have some thing that lets you use a suporter from your hand as its power? It could help a lot with setting up. Use a Scott, discard one of those with Porygon 2 and get a Celios or something for Porygon Z. Use it again next turn before evolving and you can get Porygon Z LvX out really easily actually.

    Porygon-Z(Lv.X) is BROKEN and is WAYYYYYYYY better than Garchomp Lv.X!!! Good luck winning against this card in a tournament!!!

    It is not too great IMO. Or is it... Does it upgrade his HP, Resistance(s), Weakness(es), and/or Retreat Cost? If all it adds are two one-time-use Poke-Power's I'm not convinced. Especially since the most popular Special Energy Card around is Boost Energy, and that gets discarded anyway!

    I agree, Z is a bit of a let-down. Sure, the 2 Poke-Powers/Bodies are nice, but still has no real good attack (if you're forced into using it for attacking) and like its been mentioned, he's essentially a Stage 3.

    Can people please stop defining every single card as broken, it's getting annoying.

    P-Z is decent.

    Neither are broek,but Garchomp can setup any pokemon with three energy from the discard in one turn,thats a little better since that makes Alakazam * more playable.

    it only adds one come into play power.
    the other is a use when ever you want double smooth over. which is GREAT!
    you use its power, put two good cards on the top of your deck then tvr or oaks visit. in a way its a double quick search. very usefull.
    oh and id have to say that DRE is the most played sp. energy. someone has a few of those and scrambles siting on their bench ready to get you, you lv up and discard all of them! also quite usefull.

    and the other porygon z is pretty good to if you play it with holon ff and lake boundry.
    then youve got a card with 3 powers, cheap (but flippy) attack, and EVERYTHING is weak to it.
    not too bad in my opinion.

    this is one of those good cards that can't actually be played cause nothing will be able to help it out.

    and a speed deck with rip this guy in half!

    For the love of God it's not double smooth over it's ORACLE. And Mew * lolol, as if you can't just play Boost AFTER you evolve to PZ Lvl X =/ This card is nuts, leave it to Pokegym to say it's mediocre.
