If you want to do this really simply you can do it this way..

Set opponent paddle to bouncing ball, choose a max speed (set by difficulty perhaps).

Paddle Y position greater than Ball Y position = Set direction paddle to Downward, set speed paddle to speed paddle+1.

Paddle Y position less than than Ball Y position = Set direction paddle to upward, set speed paddle to speed paddle+1.

Paddle Y position equal to Ball Y position = set speed paddle to 0.

You can then add additional conditions to the 1st 2 events to define boundaries etc...

And if you want it to be unbeatable, then just set, Always = Ypos Paddle to Ypos Ball.

There is actually a really good AI tutorial that goes over this in the articles section. I'll see if I can dig it up.

If you want smooth movements try using interpolation.

Here is something I made a while back to play around with,

I don't have time to make a proper example at the moment so you'll have to study the code.
Its not pong but the engine is basically the same.

Enjoy!
