Of particular value may be Kingdra, with double resistance to both water and fire. Combined with possible dragon movesets, he could be particularly powerful against both Vaporean and Dragonite. Additionally Scizor could prove valuable against Executor who has double weakness to Bug moves. In the event Porygon maintains his general rarity, seeking and saving candy for Porygon2 would also be a priority for trainers eager to prepare.
