Porygon weather influence

Cloudy weather would be the best weather to attempt this raid under, as it would boost the power of the super-effective Fighting types moves. The most difficult weathers to attempt this raid under would be Rainy, which would boost the Electric type moves of Porygon, and Partly Cloudy weather, which would boost its more powerful Normal type moves.

Attempting a Porygon under Partly Cloudy weather would be very difficult, as its best move sets include its Normal type moves, making it pretty powerful. Under Rainy weather, however, it should not be too hard to beat it even with its Electric moves if you have good counters and a high enough level.

Weather Pros Cons
Cloudy Boosts Fighting type moves
Windy Boosts Dragon moves (if Dragonite is used)
Snowy  –
Sunny Boosts Grass type moves
Rainy Boosts Electric type moves
Partly Cloudy Boosts Normal type moves
