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


Deoxys is a Psychic-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation III, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #386 as the "DNA Pokémon". Originally exclusive to events, Deoxys would later be obtainable through normal gameplay in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire as part of the post-game Delta Episode, and as such is the first Mythical Pokémon with this distinction. 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 originally had 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 special Normal-type 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 leveling 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, lightly dealing 7% damage and meteor smashing anyone who touches it. Once at the top of the screen it will shoot a powerful Hyper Beam downwards. The Hyper Beam will pull in fighters and deal 1% at the edge (indicated by a faint, blue aura) and 30% at the beam, with the beam having high knockback and being able to one-hit KO Mario. While difficult, it is possible to SDI the edge hits and avoid being hit by the beam. This attack does not harm the summoner.
