    Default Deoxys

    386 Deoxys

    DNA Pokémon: An alien virus that fell to earth on a meteor underwent a DNA mutation to become this Pokémon.

    Ability: Pressure: When this Pokémon is hit by a move, the opponent’s PP lowers by 2 rather than 1.

    Types: Psychic

    Event Only:
    US GameStop event 6/20/08 - 6/22/08 & 6/27/08 - 6/29/08 http://www.gamestop.com/gs/landing/p...x/default.aspx
    Previous events including NASA tour.

    Deoxys has 4 different forms: Normal, Attack, Speed & Defense

    If you search in the south-eastern part of Veilstone City you will find 4 meteorites.



    If Deoxys is in your party and you press the A button touching a meteorite, the deoxys form will change.

    The upper meteorite - Touching the meteorite boosted the speed of a certain Pokemon - Speed form

    The middle meteorite - Touching the meteorite balanced out the attributes of a certain Pokemon - Normal form

    The bottom left meteorite - Touching the meteorite heightened the defense capabilities of a certain Pokemon - Defense form

    The bottom right meteorite - Touching the meteorite heightened the offensive capabilities of a certain Pokemon - Attack form


    Base Stats - Normal Form
    HP 50
    Attack 150
    Defense 50
    Special Attack 150
    Special Defense 50
    Speed 150


    Base Stats - Attack Form
    HP 50
    Attack 180
    Defense 20
    Special Attack 180
    Special Defense 20
    Speed 150


    Base Stats - Defense Form
    HP 50
    Attack 70
    Defense 160
    Special Attack 70
    Special Defense 160
    Speed 90


    Base Stats - Speed Form
    HP 50
    Attack 95
    Defense 90
    Special Attack 95
    Special Defense 90
    Speed 180

    Total: 600



    So now you have a Deoxys on your DS and you want to start training it.
    The first thing to do is decide on the function/form of your Deoxys.

    Obviosly with four different forms, there are a lot of options with this pokemon.
    Too many to list in fact, so I am only detailing a couple.


    Speed has balanced attack/defense stats and is the fastest base pokemon...so what.
    No one uses Quick Attack in Uber battles.
    Being the first to land an attack only means something if you're knocking out pokemon.
    Normal has better defense stats that attack, but that doesn't help it enough to survive many attacks.

    Stick with attack or defense forms.
    Which one of the below you choose should be based on the nature and IVs of your Deoxys.

    Any plus speed or attack nature, go with attack form.
    Any plus defense nature, go with defense form.
    If you get a negative defense or neutral nature Deoxys, go with the mixed attacker


    ATTACK

    Mixed Attacker
    Nature: Hasty/Naive
    Item: Expert Belt/Life Orb
    EVs: 106 Attack / 152 Special Attack / 252 Speed
    Moves:
    Superpower
    Thunderbolt / Thunder
    Ice Beam
    Shadow Ball

    This set has the best type coverage and most powerful and consistant moves.
    Palkia is the only Uber this set cannot hit with a super effective attack.



    Special Attacker
    Nature: Timid/Modest/Rash
    Item: Expert Belt/Choice Specs/Life Orb
    EVs: 6 HP / 252 Special Attack / 252 Speed
    Moves:
    Thunderbolt / Thunder
    Ice Beam
    Shadow Ball
    Psychic

    Thunder over Thunderbolt with Kyorge support. Ice Beam for flyers and Groudon. Shadow Ball for Psychic enemies. And Psychic for a STAB.
    Don't use Psycho Boost! You cannot afford to lose two stages of Special Attack with this set.



    Physical Attacker
    Nature: Adamant/Jolly/Naughty
    Item: Expert Belt/Choice Band/Life Orb
    EVs: 6 HP / 252 Attack / 252 Speed
    Moves:
    Superpower
    Pursuit
    Rock Slide
    Extremespeed / Zen Headbutt

    This set has the least variety of attack choices, but most Ubers have higher special defense than defense so it works.
    If you have a 3rd generation Deoxys, use move tutor to add Fire Punch / Ice Punch / ThunderPunch. Pokemon Platinum move tutor...please???






    DEFENSE

    Stall
    Nature: Careful/Impish
    Item: Leftovers
    EVs: 252 HP / 106 Defense / 152 Special Defense
    Moves:
    Spikes
    Stealth Rock
    Protect / Knock Off / Taunt
    Recover

    This set works best if your entire team is built around stalling out the battle.


    Calm Minder
    Nature: Calm/Bold
    Item: Leftovers
    EVs: 252 HP / 152 Defense / 106 Special Attack
    Moves:
    Calm Mind
    Recover / Rest
    Grass Knot / Ice Beam
    Shadow Ball

    It is what it is. Boost, recover and attack.


    Counter
    Nature: Sassy/Relaxed
    Item: Leftovers / Focus Sash
    EVs: 252 HP / 152 Defense / 106 Special Defense
    Moves:
    Protect
    Counter
    Mirror Coat
    Knock Off / Taunt / Snatch

    This is the most difficult Deoxys to use. This set requires a little confidence in your own prediction skills.
    It is outstanding at taking out Choice Scarf opponents.
    This can make a good lead pokemon.

    Pretty much the only pokemon you don't need to SR to get a good nature for unless you absolutely want a specific type of deoxys or special IV's.

    Great write up! I was astounded to learn Deoxys can know Extreme Speed, talk about deadly >_<
    Swears make baby Bonsly cry.

    Would Speed form be worth a look since it is in the OU tier rather than Uber?

    I was trying to come up with a set that would work for both speed and attack forms..here's what I came up with.

    Focus Blast - SP Fight 120
    Psycho Boost - SP Psychic (140)
    Ice Beam - SP Ice (95)
    Thunderbolt - Electric (95)

    I also thought about having superpower in there, but i think with the STAB Psycho Boost that is moot.

    The above set is full on Special Sweeper, probably a choice item. 252 in SpAtk, Whatever in speed makes it fastest in speed form, and rest in HP.

    Again - I havent completed fleshing this idea out, but with the ease of swapping from one form to the other, Its probably worth a look by someone better than I.

    i dunno about psycho boost. its more of a last resort move, with it having reducing sp atk by two stages

    and i would replace focus blast with superpower. even though your set is mostly a special sweeping, you can catch darkrai offguard with the superpower. altho in the OU metagame, dugtrio does trap a deoxys while it sucker punches away.
    the dancing butterfly just 6-0d your team
