How to defeat Deoxys Defense Form in Pokémon GO; best counters [2022]

This February, Pokémon GO will cap off the rotation of Legendary Pokémon with Deoxys Defense Forme in five-star raids. After the temporary arrival of Deoxys Normal Forme and Deoxys Attack Forme, it is time to welcome the defensive form of this unique Pokémon of the third generation, a mutation that will not say goodbye here, but in a few days will give the baton to Deoxys Speed ??Form. Let’s find out all the details of this particular Pokémon and which are the best opponents to defeat it.

Deoxys Defense Form in Pokémon GO: date and details

Defense Forme Deoxys will be available in Pokémon GO five-star raids from February 22 at 10:00 AM until February 25 at 10:00 AM, always local time. Also, this Wednesday, February 23rd we will have Raid Time from 18:00 to 19:00 (local time).

This creature, a mutation of a space virus, can change its shape depending on the circumstances, greatly altering its characteristics. In this case, Deoxys’ Defense Forme (Psychic) ??doesn’t have a chance to appear in shiny form; It has base stats of 144 ATK, 330 DEF and only 137 speed.

We need Ghost, Dark, or Bug-type Pokémon to defeat it, since they are super effective weaknesses against its elemental type. In the raid, which we recommend going with at least 7 people (it has a lot of defense, it’s really complicated with 5 or 6 people), we’ll find it with 36,170 points. You will quickly see how long it takes them to lower their health points. On an offensive level it is not very fearsome, it does not have very powerful attacks; although we must be careful with Lightning if we have Flying-type creatures. This is the team we recommend to defeat Defense Forme Deoxys in Pokémon GO raids.
