Deoxys (デオキシス, Deoxys) is a creature in the Pokémon media franchise.


Deoxys is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation III, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #386 as the "DNA Pokémon". Originally an event-exclusive Pokémon, it became regularly available in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the first Pokémon to do so. It possesses four different Formes: the Normal Forme, with high attack stats and low defense stats, the Attack Forme, which sharpens even further its disparity between attacking and defensive stats, the Defense Forme, which is much slower and less powerful but severely increases its defensive capabilities, and the Speed Forme, which has balanced offensive and defensive stats and used to have the highest base speed of any Pokémon, before being succeeded by Regieleki. The Attack Forme, originally exclusive to Pokémon FireRed, is the one that appears in the Smash series.

Hyper Beam is a Normal-type special move with 150 base power and 90% accuracy. While very powerful, if successful it forces the user to waste one turn to recharge. It is available to most fully evolved Pokémon with TM15, but Deoxys can also learn it by level-up in its Normal and Attack Formes.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

The Attack Form of Deoxys appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. When it comes out of its Poké Ball, it will fly upward, meteor smashing anyone who touches it, and will proceed to shoot a powerful Hyper Beam downwards, sending anyone that touches the beam to go flying with great force. Damage can surpass 80% if all hits connect. If the opponent is close enough, it can suck them towards the blast with a considerable vacuum effect.

When the blast is relatively large, it OHKOs any opponent that touches the Hyper Beam. When the beam gets slightly narrower, it deals multiple hits, with the last of them having invariable OHKO power as well. However, opponents can SDI out of the blast to avoid the last hit. Contact with Deoxys's body is also an OHKO. This attack does not harm the summoner.
