Why not max out special attack and speed instead of health and D Porygon2? That way it's tank + does damage instead of just being a wall...

Is there that noticeable of a difference on survavability between using EV points on health and D, than using on S.attack and speed?

As a rule of thumb, barring the extreme cases (stuff like Shuckle or Deoxys), investing in defensive stats has an absolutely enormous impact on survivability.

If you want a porygon to do damage, make it a porygonZ, if you want a porygon to take damage, make a porygon2
I find your lack of understanding disturbing

The effects of EVs aren't too particularly noticeable until level 100.
Is here to ruin the party
