Deoxys (Japanese: デオキシス Deoxys) is a Template:Type2 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.

Biology

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

Physiology

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.

Gender differences

Deoxys is a genderless species.

Special abilities

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.

Behavior

Deoxys tend to keep to themselves, but befriend humans they trust.

Habitat

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

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

File:Deoxys.png
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.

In the manga

In Pokémon Special

Deoxys plays a major role in the events of the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter. During the disaster in the previous chapter, Team Rocket infiltrated the Mossdeep Space Center and stole a virus that had been exposed to a laser beam while in space, then ended up attached to a meteorite. In their care, the virus split into two entities and developed into two separate Deoxys, appropriately named Entities 1 and 2. While the leaders of Team Rocket stayed on in Hoenn, other members took the two Deoxys back to Kanto. The team transporting the Deoxys were startled when the Deoxys began to change forme (as Normal and Speed forms had been previously documented) and Entity Two took advantage of this and escaped, accidentally absorbing some of Red's blood in the escape. Giovanni used the weaker Entity One to capture Blue's parents and Professor Oak. Red was tricked into battling Entity Two, who defeated him but was captured by Giovanni. Around this time, Team Rocket managed to duplicate the climate of Hoenn and allowed Deoxys to transform into all of its formes. Giovanni used Entity Two to locate his son, Silver and set out for Viridian City. Red came to Giovanni, and challenged him with Mewtwo. Ultimately triumphing due to Bill shutting down the Hoenn climate machine on Chrono Island, Giovanni revealed that he disposed of Entity One and Yellow used her abilities to inform Red of his link to Deoxys. When one of the Team Rocket members tried to usurp control, Deoxys transported Giovanni, Silver, Yellow, and Mewtwo out of harm's way before helping Red to regain control of the ship. As the disaster ended and all of the protagonists reunited, Sird tried to capture Deoxys, but ended up turning the heroes to stone. Entity Two then sped towards a distant region in hopes of being allowed to freely transfer between formes and locating Entity One.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

When unleashed from a Poké Ball, an Attack Forme Deoxys will sometimes appear. It floats gently towards the top of the screen. It will spin gracefully and begin to glow. When fully facing the front, it will cast a powerful Hyper Beam, sending anyone in its path flying.

Trivia

  • The Attack Forme of Deoxys has the highest Attack and Special Attack of any non-glitch Pokémon, on par with Marowak holding Thick Club.
    • Likewise, the Speed Forme of Deoxys has the highest Speed of any Pokémon.
  • Deoxys's first three forms, Defense, Normal, and Attack have the initials D.N.A., the initials of deoxyribonucleic acid, which Deoxys is named and based after.
  • All of Deoxys's forms are available in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum; however, unlike Generation III, they can freely be changed in-game by inspecting the meteorites in Veilstone City.
  • Deoxys is the final Pokémon in the Hoenn Dex, yet it was first in the wild in a Kanto-based game. Likewise, the final Pokémon in the Kanto Pokédex, Mew, was first found wild in a Hoenn-based game.
  • When recruited in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Deoxys will be in its Normal Forme when playing in the overworld, however, when exploring a dungeon, Deoxys's form will be randomly selected each time the player progresses to a new floor.
  • In Pokémon Ranger, Deoxys's form changes every time its Browser entry is accessed. It cycles in order from Normal Forme to Attack Forme to Defense Forme to Speed Forme and finally back to Normal Forme.
  • Deoxys was the first Pokémon to have its own unique battle music. The second Pokémon to have its own unique music was Arceus, followed by Giratina, the latter in Platinum only. All other legendary Pokémon share battle themes with at least one other.
  • In its Generation III Normal Forme sprite, its arm is on its right side, while in Generation IV the arm is on its left. Additionally, in Generation III, it only is shown with four fingers, while in Generation IV, it has five.
  • In the anime, Deoxys is able to change to any of its forms at will regardless of where it is. While it can willingly change in the Pokémon Special manga, its choices are limited by the environment.
  • The three dots on its back, consistent throughout all its formes, bear resemblance to the three dots on the back of the Fusion Suit from the Metroid Series.

Events

  • Because of the results of a poll among fans, Deoxys was given away along with pre-ordered tickets to Japanese theater showings of The Rise of Darkrai. It is holding NeverMeltIce, a reference to the fact that Deoxys's first appearance in Destiny Deoxys is at the North Pole.
  • Deoxys was distributed at GameStop on June 20-22, and June 27-29. It knows Psycho Boost, Zap Cannon, Iron Defense, and ExtremeSpeed and is holding NeverMeltIce.
  • A UK event (known as 'The Hunt for Deoxys') in 2005 was held at vue cinema's for 2 days each across the country, player's of FireRed and LeafGreen were able to download the Aurora Ticket. Player's could also try out Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness and Pokémon Emerald.

Origin

Deoxys appears to draw inspiration from certain representations of aliens and visual representations of the DNA double helix.

Name origin

Deoxys's name is an abbreviation of deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, the medium of genetic code in many cellular organisms.
