Pokemon Of The Week – Deoxys


Deoxys is a Psychic-type legendary Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. However, Deoxys has four different forms. In Generation III, its form depends on what game is being played. In Generation IV, its form can be changed at will in Veilstone City.

Deoxys is the last Pokémon in the Hoenn Dex and National Pokédex within Generation III.

The shape of Deoxys is based on a strand of DNA.


Deoxys has four forms, each with different appearance. The main things that are constant for all four forms is that Deoxys’s dominant color is orange with a bluish-green face that has a purple stripe where a nose would be and white circular eyes and the crystalline organ in its chest:

The Normal Forme has skinny legs that come to a point. The upper-legs have a single blue stripe that goes down to the knees. Deoxys can sometimes have bluish-green arms with five-fingered hands and a red “Y” shape that runs down the arms’ entire length. It has an orange skin that covers it except for its abdomen. It also been seen with two cord-like tentacles (one red and one blue) in place of the arms. Deoxys also has two trapezoid-shaped “ears”.


The Attack Forme has basically the same leg-shape as the Normal Forme, but the stripes run down for mostly all of the legs’ length and Deoxys has a spike on each of its knees. Deoxys has a pair of tentacles that come to a point were its arms would be and cannot be twisted. Deoxys has triangle-shaped “ears” and a single spike on top of its head. Most of the orange “skin” has disappeared.


The Defense Forme has wide legs that are somewhat flat at the end and have a bluish-green spot on each of the knees. Deoxys has flat, broad tentacles that also can’t be twisted and Deoxys’ head has been fused with its body. Its “skin” has thickened and covered all of its body parts for greater defense.


The Speed Forme has gray, skinny legs and a gray body. Deoxys only has one tentacle on each side of its body. The back of Deoxys’s head is elongated and comes to a point. It has also lost most of its orange “skin,” allowing for better aerodynamics and faster movement.  Deoxys is a genderless species.

Deoxys mostly has the same abilities as Mewtwo and the aforementioned ability to change its appearance to suit whatever situation it may be in during battle. Destiny Deoxys shows a Deoxys creating duplicates of itself to help achieve its objective.  Deoxys tend to keep to themselves, but befriend humans they trust.


Deoxys was a virus resting in a stray meteor, and while it flew through the atmosphere, the virus mutated into the first known Deoxys.



In the Anime Deoxys first appeared in Destiny Deoxys. One with a green crystalline organ fell to earth in a meteorite. A second Deoxys (with a purple crystalline organ) came to LaRousse City to search for it but ended up in an epic battle with Rayquaza. As Pokémon Emerald had not been released when the movie was produced, only its Defense, Normal and Attack Formes appeared.

Deoxys also appeared in the special episode Pokémon Ranger – Deoxys Crisis!. This is where Deoxys’s Speed Forme debuted.

A Deoxys appeared in DP112 in all of its formes.
