Deoxys is a Psychic-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It is also known as the 'DNA Pokémon'.

How to Obtain

Deoxys can be obtained by having both Solrock and Lunatone in your party and searching in a specific Pichu nest in Mysterious Grotto. (Closest patch of grass from the battle tower.)

Deoxys's location, have Lunatone and Solrock in your party.

Deoxys can also be obtained from trading and the Pokémon Roulette.

Note: You can have Solrock and Lunatone and have other pokemon in your party as well. It does not matter which order or where you put them in your party. If you have a shiny Solrock or Lunatone, it will not affect the odds of it being shiny.


Deoxys can change its form to adapt and dominate in the Speed, Defense, or Attack stats though it is usually caught with normal stats at first. Deoxys has 4 concurrent forms (Normal, Defense, Attack, Speed). You can change Deoxys forms by going to finding meteorites found in Mysterious Grotto. Each form has increment and decrement in particular status, corresponding to their name. Each form keeps the same base stat totals (BSTs) and ability (Pressure)
