Additional software was installed to make it a better Pokémon. It began acting oddly, however.

Sun In order to create a more advanced Pokémon, an additional program was installed, but apparently it contained a defect that makes it move oddly.
Moon Its program was modified to facilitate extra-dimensional activities, but that led to noticeably strange behavior.
Ultra Sun Its behavior is noticeably unstable, which is apparently due to the incompetence of the engineer who updated its programming.
Ultra Moon A faulty update was added to its programming. Its behavior is noticeably strange, so the experiment may have been a failure.
Sword Porygon-Z had a program installed to allow it to move between dimensions, but the program also caused instability in Porygon-Z’s behavior.
Shield Some say an additional program made this Pokémon evolve, but even academics can’t agree on whether Porygon-Z is really an evolution.
Brilliant Diamond
Shining Pearl
Additional software was installed to make it an even better Pokémon. It began acting oddly, however.
Legends: Arceus A curious item induced this evolution. The Pokémon’s offensive capabilities have greatly increased, but the strangeness of its behavior has magnified in equal measure. This worries me.
