Deoxys Counters Guide

My son made a team of just Mewtwos today.


Wow. Tell him to switch them out for Deoxys when he gets them.

I won’t use any Mewtwos until after the 23rd and I pick which one to power up. Probably won’t get Deoyxis until next year when it goes into normal raids.

Yeah, very similar to Mewtwo

Mew finally has use

But there are two problems with Mew:
It’s very hard to obtain those 2 moves.
It’s expensive to power up mew to usable level since it’s just level 15

Deoxys Normal has no fighting fast or charge move, dark type team has no problem against it.

Deoxys as attacker on another deoxys only works if you get the attack form. Niantic said we would be fighting the normal form so you probably only get to catch that one.

I dont think L20 deoxys is better than any of my L40s so Id rather stay away from including it in my team anytime soon

Why would anybody use Mew tbh

Why not? If someone invested in it then why keep it locked away
