Deoxys-D @ Mental Herb | Pressure
Timid | 252 HP / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Skill Swap | Taunt | Stealth Rock | Spikes
Through the use of a Mental Herb and Skill Swap, Deoxys-D can effective beat almost all of its common "stops" in one set. Skill Swap is a very underrated move, especially for Deoxys-D teams that lack a way to beat opposing Magic Bounce users (lacking Pursuit, basically), because you pretty much are guaranteed a win versus teams utilizing Magic Bounce in an attempt to beat Deoxys-D. Skill Swap may seem specialized at first; however, Skill Swap has some other added benefits as well which may not be so obvious. For example: a Ninetales leads and goes into Venusaur in attempts to set up versus your team, Skill Swap effectively neuders Venusaur's speed and makes it a non-threat. Dragonite loses his Multiscale versus your Deoxys-D, Jirachi can even lose its annoying flinch-hax through Skill Swap. It's actually quite the useful move! With a Mental Herb and Taunt, you are guaranteed to beat opposing Terrakion leads which Magic Coat doesn't provide. It also can help aid in not allowing your opponent to set up. The downfall to this set is opposing Magic Coat Deoxys-D, but that's really rare. I really recommend this set, you should try it out! It's a great lead in many Hyper Offensive teams.
