Intro Trivia Edit
| Deoxys has received updated trivia and/or battle strategy.|
The updated trivia and/or battle strategy can be found here.
- Deoxys is an event-only Pokémon from Gen 3. Its bizarre backstory and cool design has given it a big fan-following.
- Its body is made up of Red and Blue Twists which are supposed to resemble DNA, which is a reference to its unstable cellular structure.
- This trait allows it to easily switch between four specialized forms, being Normal, Attack, Defense, and Speed.
- Its name is derived from Deoxyribonucleic Acid, which is the scientific term for DNA.
- The crystal in the middle of its torso is actually its brain. It stays in a central location so the rest of its body can easily change.
- Deoxys came into being when an alien virus inside of a meteor in space was exposed to a laser beam.
The Pokemon Creation Myth Etc.Edit
- Deoxys coming from space appears to contradict the origin story of Arceus and Mew.
- However, Deoxys isn't the only Pokémon that came from space, with others being Clefairy, Solrock, Lunatone, and Jirachi.
- To account for this, Arceus and Mew were the first known Pokémon on Earth.
- Prior to Earth, all Pokémon came from space.
- This isn't that strange of an idea, as recent studies have found biological fossils on meteors.
- All the Pokémon from Space have Pokédex entries that tie them to meteorites.
- What if space Pokémon are all very advanced, and share the ability to alter their appearance, hence why all of them look so different from each other.
- There are limitless possibilities of Pokémon life outside of Earth.
- Potentially, all Pokémon came from space, and came to Earth on meteors. They then used their adaptable DNA to integrate with wherever they ended up.
- What if people are the next step in Pokémon evolution?
Battle Strategy Edit
- Item: Focus Sash
- Ability: Pressure
- Nature: Jolly (+Speed, -Sp. Attack)
- EVs: Attack and Speed
- Magic Coat
- Fire Punch
- Deoxys has four different forms that are all viable, but Speed form is the most useful in Ubers.
- Deoxys-S is the fastest Pokémon in the game.
- Giving it a Focus Sash will prevent you from getting OHKO'ed.
- Use Deoxys as a lead, setting up as many layers of Spikes as possible.
- Watch out for Magic Coat Pokémon. They can bounce back hazards.
- Taunt can shut down stat-boosters.
- Fire Punch is the only offensive move on this set, it hits Deoxys's two main counters, Genesect and Excadrill, hard.
- Attack Form Deoxys with a Life Orb can hit incredibly hard with Psycho Boost and Superpower.
- Defense Form Deoxys can run a similar lead set, but takes hits much better along with using Recover. Toxic stalling is another great strategy.
- Regular Deoxys can be used to set up dual screens with a Light Clay.
