What to use
Deoxys-Defense @ Rocky Helmet / Mental Herb / Red Card
Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
EVs: 252 HP /4 Def / 252 Spe
- Stealth Rock
- Magic Coat / Night Shade
Role: Hazard Setter
What It Does: Sets hazards, and usually dies. Its excellent mixed bulk allows it to almost always get 1-2 layers of hazards set up, and possibly more. Can be used late game to take Specs Latios' Draco Meteors if hazards are already up. Also can break stall with Taunt or Magic Coat.
Good Teammates: Any sweeper that appreciates hazard support. Good examples are Dragonite and Lucario. Ghost types are also good teammates because they spinblock the hazards that Deoxys has set. Gengar is a good choice, as it is fast and has an offensive presence on the field. Tyranitar can defeat Xatu, Starmie, and Espeon that prevent Deoxys from setting up.
What Counters it: Magic Bouncers and Rapid Spinners mostly. Specs Zoroark can OHKO with Dark Pulse. Bug Gem Scolipede can also OHKO with Megahorn and set up its own hazards.
Any Additional Info: Use this on Hyper Offense and with Lucario.
