When a porygon changes type, does any attack it knows of the same type get the same type bounus? Like if it converts to electric, and porygon used thunder, would thunder get the attack boost?

Yep.

So normal moves on Porygon are a bit of a risk, as after converting, he'll lose the STAB.

STAB? What does that mean?

Same Type Attack Bonus. It means the way attacks do 50% more damage when used by Pokemon of the same type.

Too bad Porygon's new STAB isn't of much use, since even if it does have an attack of one of the elements he converted, it would still probably be half effective against the foe.
