Everything You Need to Know About Deoxys Attack Form in Pokemon GO
Deoxys is one of the most interesting Pokemon currently in Niantic’s mobile game. Not only is it a mythical creature, like Mew, but it has four forms, each of which has drastically different stats. Here’s everything you need to know about Deoxys Attack Form in Pokemon GO.
How to Get Deoxys Attack Form
The Pokemon is the current EX Raid Boss in Pokemon GO. Following on from Mewtwo, you need to be invited to an EX Raid, where you’ll get the chance to take on Deoxys Attack Form.
To take part in an EX Raid, you will need to follow these steps:
- Complete a Raid at a Gym that gets an EX Raid.
- Receive an Invitation to the EX Raid at that Gym.
- Join the EX Raid at that Gym, at the time specified on the invitation.
Then, as is the case with other Raids in the game, you will be given the chance to catch it once you’ve defeated it. Also, since it’s a mythical Pokemon, you will not be able to trade it.
All Attacks It Has in Pokemon GO
The Deoxys Attack Form that you encounter in an EX Raid or catch after could have a couple of different moves. The Fast moves it can know are:
- Poison Jab (Poison)
- Zen Headbutt (Psychic)
The charged move it can know in Pokemon GO are:
- Psycho Boost (Psychic)
- Dark Pulse (Dark)
- Zap Cannon (Electric)
Deoxys Attack Form Stats
Its max CP in Pokemon GO is 2580, with it being boosted to that when in windy weather conditions, which boost psychic Pokemon.
When caught, it will be between 1372 – 1474 CP with no weather boost (Level 20) and 1716 – 1842 CP with windy weather (Level 25). Its other stats are:
- Attack – 414
- Defense – 46
- Stamina – 137
Strengths & Weaknesses
Deoxys Attack Form is strong against Fighting and Psychic Type Pokemon, and is weak against Bug, Dark, and Ghost Types.
When you’re facing it in an EX Raid, you should opt to use Pokemon like Tyranitar, Mewtwo, Gengar, and Honchcrow. Take advantage of its poor Defense stats and weaknesses, and its incredible attacking ability shouldn’t be too much of an issue.
