Which Deoxys from which version do you prefer? I personally like Deoxys-LG because I have always liked to play defensive rather than offensive......

Deoxys F... quite good at OHKOs unless you're facing a foe with quick attack. White herb is so good on it ^^, be it using superpower or psychoboost

Deoxys L < Toxic, and end of story... it has to rest and 2 turns is quite a bit for you to do lots of things (let's swords dance up and hit the shadowball button!). Or it has to switch out for evil egg to aromatherapy which means that it just lost all the cosmic power it had. Deoxys L's hp is still limited, which is its main weakpoint (so that means night shade and seismic kill Deoxys L too)

deoxys-lg@chesto berry
night shade
rest
cosmic power
toxic
thats a good moveset for D-lg but they made fr even stronger in atk than lg's def. rs is pretty usless to me. its good but fr is better

I choose the Leaf Green version of Deoxys because of it's higher SPdefense

It depends on how serious you are in the battle. The entire point about a battle is defeating your opponent (and the extras). Attack Deoxys mis good at attack, and will damage a Pokmon badly. The real problem with it though IS it's defense. Shigeru's Lv66 Arcanine used Extremespeed and fainted my Attack Deoxys. That can be the only drawback.

It appears as normal Deoxys when you battle.

That is gonna damage it good.

Then again, it looks more like a generic Deoxys in the opponent's Point Of View.


Strange huh? The only way you can tell if your opponent is using attack Deoxys is tracking that guy's Wireless Adaptor-connected cart and see which Deoxys it is. Unless they want to take the damaging (or hurting) method, which is basically attacking it to see how much HP it loses to find out which Deoxys it really is..


All up, I prefer FireRed's Deoxys.

Ok I am really Jealous!! The fact that there is a Fire Red/Leaf Green thread makes me jealous. But you have Deoxys too? I am really jealous. I have been trying to figure out how to get it in Ruby/Sapphire. Is Deoxys hard to find/catch in FR/LG?

You can only catch Deoxys in LG/FR! If your doing that 1 cheat with the trainer stars, forget it. It is fake. Trainer Stars are real though. I think FR Deoxys rules!

I prefer the LG-Deoxys. I like sneaky evil tactics like Toxic. Hehehe... And it can get Counter and Mirror Coat to use while the Toxic is setting in. It's like a Wobbufett mixed with Shuckle hehehe.

I prefer the RS Deoxys, since its stats are good all around. The FR one has great attack power, but its defenses make it an easy target. The LG one has great defenses, but lacks attack power. I don't like having a Pokmon that has bad attack power or bad defenses, which makes the RS Deoxys the best choice for me.

Ahem... these types of threads shouldn't be happening if I wasn't so lazy with continously delaying myself from updating the FRLG FAQ guide with Shadow... anyway here's part of the what should have been upgraded guide (it's still in development)



Deoxys and Its 3 Forms
(guide by Demonchaos916)

Deoxys is a genderless, Psychic type Pokemon that cannot breed and has 3 different forms(Offensive, Defensive, and Balanced) which will be explained later on. Right now in the U.S.A., Deoxys can only be obtained through using a cheating device. Until Pokemon versions FireRed(FR) and LeafGreen(LG) is released in America (or if NoA holds a special event before the release), that is the ONLY way to obtain Deoxys. Anything you heard, ranging from capturing all 200 Pokemon, getting 5 Trainer Stars, to flying to the moon, is a rumor and a lie.

In FR/LG, you can get Deoxys through the use of an Aurora Ticket to reach Island 9, which is what people are calling the island until an English name is given. The Aurora Ticket was given out through an Nintendo event, which will probably also take place in America once Fr/LG is released. You can still also just use cheats to get Deoxys like most people.

For those of you who own Deoxys in Ruby/Sapphire, you might've noticed you can only have the R/S form (Balanced) of Deoxys and not the other 2 forms. That is because Deoxys' looks, icons, and stats change depending on which version it is in. So if you traded the Deoxys you own in R/S to a FR/LG cartridge, it would change forms depending on which version it is traded into. Deoxys has more offensive stats in FR and more defensive stats in LG. It's stats are more balanced in R/S.

Here is Deoxys' base stats for all three forms. I ahve also listed for each stat's maximum with a personality, in order from left to right, that decreases it by 10%, does nothing to it, and increases it by 10%.

Ruby/Sapphire Base Stats
HP: 50(304, 304, 304)
Attack: 150(359, 399, 438)
Defense: 50(179, 199, 218
Speed: 150(359, 399, 438)
Special Attack: 150(359, 399, 438)
Special Defense: 50(179, 199, 218

Fire Red Base Stats
HP: 50(304, 304, 304)
Attack: 180(413, 459, 504)
Def: 20(129, 135, 152)
Speed: 150(359, 399, 438)
Special Attack: 180(413, 459, 504)
Special Defense: 20(129, 135, 152)

Leaf Green Base Stats
HP: 50(304, 304, 304)
Attack: 70(215, 239, 252)
Defense: 160(377, 419, 460)
Speed: 90(251, 279, 306)
Special Attack: 70(215, 239, 252)
Special Defense: 160(377, 419, 460)

Just like how Deoxys' stats and looks change from version to version, what it can learn also changes. But it's ability, Pressure, stays the same throughout all of it's forms. Here is what it learns from leveling up, using TMs/HMs (these are from RS as I am not sure what the TMs/HMs in FR/LG are), and through the use of the Move Tutor from FRLG.

That's nice...

I'd go with Deoxys LG even though I'm gonna buy FR. I'm not going to be doing much attacking with Deoxys LG but more for annoyance with Toxic+TWave. Spongy.

I would choose RS, because I'm a balanced player. Then again, I have never used either FR or LG Deoxys. Slightly off topic, does anyone know if Emerald (which HAS been confirmed, BTW) will have yet another form of Deoxys? If so, I wonder what it would be...

1v1- Attack. Not *that* many people use quick attack or extremespeed...right...?
2v2- Defence. For the simple reason that there is just a limited number of pokemon attack Deoxys can kill in one turn, and a limited number of hits it can take. Also, for 2v2 i still prefer defencive stratergies.

Ok I am really Jealous!! The fact that there is a Fire Red/Leaf Green thread makes me jealous. But you have Deoxys too? I am really jealous. I have been trying to figure out how to get it in Ruby/Sapphire. Is Deoxys hard to find/catch in FR/LG?

You don't find Deoxys in FR/LG, you get the Aurora ticket at a Nintendo Event, but that's over now, so, now the only way is an AR
