I love Porygon2. It takes down the dragons in OU and takes their attacks like a boss.

Ability: download/analytic

Nature: bold if download, relaxed if analytic

EVs: 252 def, 252 sp.def, 4 sp.atk

Item: eviolite

Tri Attack: stab and hack of the gods.
Ice beam: to take down those Garchomps (in one hit)
Toxic: to stall what you can't kill
Recover: to last as as annoyance forever!

My Porygon 2 knows:

-Recover (Prolonging the battle till you win out)
-Psychic (High Sp. Attk and it fends off most types and helps defeat fighting types)
-Thunderbolt (Paralysis, plus it's another high powered Sp. Attk)
-Hyper Beam (High powered plus STAB)

I also attach a pink bow to mine so he has boosted power to Hyper Beam to go with the STAB you already receive

enter image description here

Nature: Serious (this is my pref, but, I recommend getting one that has speed hindered)
Ability: Download
Item: Evoilite
EV: 252Hp/120Def/120Sp.Def/16 Sp.Atk

Trick Room
Charge Beam
Psychic/Ice Beam/Tri-Attack

It's no secret that Porygon2 with Evoilite is the way to go. His defenses skyrocket, and has good Hp that benefits from EV's a lot. It's a very well rounded but horrible speed . I have solved this problem by making a Bulky Trick Room Porygon of Doom. It benefits from prolonged battles. Recover for when somebody does finally put a scratch on P2. Trick Room, although he's not the slowest, he's close enough. Charge beam + download is why you can afford to dump your EV into Hp and Defense, and slightly put some into his naturally good Sp.Atk. The final move is your choice, I usually lean towards psychic depending on who else I'm using in the Trick Room setup. With his good health and near uber defenses, getting 1-3 charge beams in during doubles is easy, and in singles, proper use of Download: porygon can survive multiple swaps, and you have recover. In case someone lands a strong crit. Focus Blast from Mega Charizard Y did a stunning 50 damage to Porygon2 the other day. There is no Ohko'ing this guy.
