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.

This guy is sick when you use him well

Poly gone
Ability: Analytic
252 Sp Def 151 Def 105 Hp
Bold nature (+ Def - Atk)

Conversion 2
Tri attack

This guy is just so bulky. Conversion 2 just straight up stops anyone trying to spam Drain punch or Power up punch. Protect gives free lefties heal. Recover annoys the heal out of them and Tri attack is to get para/freeze hacks or cripple physical attackers and deal with taunt users. The EVs just strengthen his and since he's so slow, Analytic nearly always takes effect.

porygon2 is pretty damn good; even though porygon-z has higher special attack, porygon2's higher defense makes it a good eviolite Pokemon.

Item: Eviolite
Nature: Modest/Calm
IVs: 0 Attack, 0 Speed (0sp is optional if you want to have the analytic ability)
EVs: 252 Special Defense/248 HP/8 Special Attack
ability: Analytic (download is ok too, but I prefer analytic since its speed isnt too good and download has a risk of boosting the attack stat. trace is ok, but as I said before, I think analytic is a little better)

Pain Split [gain hp whilst doing damage]
Tri-Attack [stab, and its one of the few god forsaken special normal type moves that dont alternate type /not counting type-changing abilities like pixilate and ****/ or arent exclusive moves to certain Pokemon lol]
Psychic [deal with fighting-types, and also be able to attack ghost types with the normal-type immunity]
Recover [just for hp recovery in case pain split isnt usable at that moment]

thankfully porygon2 is a normal type so I can just use up one move for weakness coverage, only problem is dealing with steel types, but pain split can help out a little in regards to that. good part is that psychic is an awesome move in general and it deals with its only weakness. hopefully this is decent moveset, its helped me out of plenty of situations in battle.
