    The Pressure is ON
    [QC: Ginjaninja / jc104 / Shrang] [GP: none / none]
    WIP :

    [Overview]

    <p> Deoxys-D is often the first pokemon to come to a player's mind when they search for a good wall- and rightfully so. It has stellar defenses, allowing it to take hits from many of the tier's most fearsome attackers. It also has pretty good speed for a pokemon bulky- enough to outspeed non-scarfed Rotom-W and Dragonite. Even better is its wide movepool- with many useful support moves such as Stealth Rock, Spikes, Taunt, and Toxic. It's decent attacking stats and pretty large offensive movepool means that it can even run a pseudo offensive set to great effect.</p>

    <p> However, despite these traits, Deoxys-D still has its drawbacks. One thing that stands out is it's aweful HP stat- which means that hazard and status damage will cripple it a lot. It also doesn't have a very good typing defensive-wise; it is easily trapped and KO'd by some of the tier's most popular pokemon such as Scizor or Tyranitar. Its subpar attacking stats will also mean that it's good set up bait for many bulkier pokemon such as Volcorona or Terrakion that can take its hits. The come of BW2 didn't help it much either- the new threats such as Tornadus-T and Keldeo all hit through Deoxys-D's defenses and love to set up on it. Still, this defensive beast has a lot going for it, so underestimate it at your own peril.</p>

    [SET]
    name: Speedy Spiker
    move 1: Spikes
    move 2: Taunt
    move 3: Stealth Rock
    move 4: Night Shade / Magic Coat
    item: Leftovers / Rocky helmet
    ability: Pressure
    nature: Timid
    evs: 252 HP / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p> Just like it was in previous generations, Deoxys-D cements itself as one of the best support pokemon in the game. With base 90 speed, Deoxys-D is one of the fastest Spikers in the tier, able to set up quick hazards in the beginning of a match. It also gets Stealth Rock, a move many other Spikers would just dream they had. Because of its access to Taunt and its gigantic defenses, there are not many pokemon that can prevent this behemoth from setting up. The last moveslot if optional- it depends on what the team needs. With Magic Coat, Deoxys-D can reflect opposing hazards, status, and Taunt. Night Shade, on the other hand, provides reliable damage and also prevents Deoxys-D from being shut down by Prankster Taunts from the likes of Sableye. </p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p> Recover or Thunder Wave can be used instead of Stealth Rock if you already have a stealth rocker. Recover allows Deoxys to gain HP back, and stay in a lot longer to set up. Thunder Wave, on the other hand, cripples the opponent, and allows Deoxys-D to Taunt even faster threats. Maximum speed investment and a Timid nature allows Deoxys-D to outspeed max EV neutral nature base 100's and Taunt them before they can set up. The Max HP lets you take as many hits as possible, and the rest of the EVs are put into Special Defense to make Deoxys-D take hits a little bit better on the special side. The speed EVs are very tweakable; 228 EVs allows you to outspeed Jirachi and Celebi, while 208 outspeeds Adamant Haxorus, and 216 outspeeds Modest Hydreigon. The leftover EVs can be put into defense or special defense for more bulk. A more specially defensive set can be used also, with 252 HP / 4 SpD / 252 Spe with a Calm nature. Leftovers allows Deoxys to gain steady recovery and keep it alive longer, while a Rocky Helmet punishes physical attackers. If you want to be able to escape Scizor and Tyranitar, Colbur and Tanga berries can be used, however smart prediction and conservative playing is usually a better idea.</p>

    <p> Like all other hazard support pokemon, Deoxys-D loves to be partners with Spinblockers such as Gengar or Jellicent. Rotom-W is also a great parnter for Deoxys-D because it can switch into Trick without fearing much, and it can also utilize VoltTurn to force the opponent to take hazard damage set up from Deoxys. Rotom also handles many spinners well, including Starmie, Donphan, and Forretress. Deoxys-D works particularly well in VoltTurn teams, since those teams will wear down opponents quickly with hazard support. Pokemon such as Infernape or Terrakion that can take care of Scizor or Tyranitar are great partners too, as many of them enjoy hazard support and eliminate pokemon that threaten Deoxys. </p>

    [SET]
    name: Offensive Spiker
    move 1: Spikes
    move 2: Psycho Boost
    move 3: Hidden Power Fire / Thunder
    move 4: Stealth Rock
    item: Life Orb
    ability: Pressure
    nature: Modest
    evs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p> Though 70 Special Attack and Attack are nothing to brag about, it's certainly enough to allow Deoxys-D to do something that makes out stand out among hazard support pokemon- KO most of the spinners in the tier. Once spinners are eliminated, Deoxys-D can safely set up hazards without fearing their removal, something not many other Spikers can do. Spikes is the base of this set, providing really useful hazards for all sorts of teams, and it even has the ability to negate Sturdies and Focus Sashes, so Deoxys-D can OHKO Foretress. Psycho Boost is the main STAB, hitting fighting and poison types hard. Hidden Power Fire and Thunder each dispose of Forretress and Starmie, respectively, while Stealth Rock is used in the last slot for even more hazards. </p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p> Max special attack and a Life Orb is needed to secure some very important KO's- such as the OHKO to Tentacruel with Psycho Boost, or the OHKO to Forretress and Scizor. Full investment in Speed allows Deoxys-D to outpace as many pokemon as possible, and the remaining evs are put into HP for bulk. Fire and Electric gems can be used to hit harder and avoid recoil, but they don't necessary turn many important 2HKO's into OHKO's, so Life Orb is generally better. Superpower can be used to hit Tyranitar hard, and Thunderbolt can be used instead of Thunder for its greater accuracy, however take note that Thunderbolt misses on the ability to OHKO Starmie. A spread of 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe Adamant with Superpower and Fire Punch can be used for a physical take, however this does not hit as hard as a specially oriented Deoxys. </p>

    <p> Once again, this Deoxys-D is very well suited for offensive teams- even more so than the fast Spiker, because of its ability to KO spinners and deal a lot of damage to everything else. Hard hitting pokemon love to have hazards on the opponents side, to break Sturdies and Sashes, and to just weaken the opponents pokemon for a sweep. This set, being offensive, does not mind Taunt and TrickScarf as much as the other sets do, however they are still useful strategies in taking down this Deoxys-D. Because this set lacks the bulk of the other ones, extremely powerful hitters such as Choice Banded Haxorus or Choice Specs Latios can break down this Deoxys with repeated heavy hits.</p>

    [SET]
    name: Bulky Spiker
    move 1: Spikes
    move 2: Taunt
    move 3: Recover
    move 4: Night Shade / Stealth Rock
    item: Leftovers / Rocky Helmet
    ability: Pressure
    nature: Calm
    evs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p> In this set, Deoxys utilizes it's massive Special Defense to become one of the sturdiest walls in the tier. It sets Spikes and Taunts, preventing itself from being set up on and laying down hazard support. Recover is an excellent recovery move for Deoxys-D, making it a harder nut to crack as many special sweepers will fail to do more than 50%. The last slot has two options; Night Shade allows you to damage your opponent, while Stealth Rock provides more useful hazards. </p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p> Full investment in Special Defense and HP allow Deoxys-D to take hits from many of the tier's most fearsome special attackers, including Specs Latios and Specs Tornadus-T. The rest of the evs are put into defense to allow it to take some physical hits as well. The evs can be further tweaked with a spread of 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD witha Bold nature to take hits from the physical side. Leftovers help Deoxys regenerate health when it doesn't have time to Recover, while Rocky Helmet dissuades weaker spinners such as Starmie from spinning your hazards away. </p>

    <p> In the fourth moveslot, Toxic can also be used to passively damage sweepers, allowing you to Recover stall or force them to switch and take hazard damage. Great partners for this set are same as always- Ghost types such as Gengar or Jellicent that can prevent the opponent from spinning. This Deoxys is more suited for bulkier offensive teams, taking hits well and giving it's teammates support. Bulky fighting types such as Conkeldurr are also great partners for this set, being able to handle Tyranitar and Scizor and take hits from Deoxys's slightly weaker physical defense. Without fighting types (and sometimes even with them) Scizor and Tyranitar can come in and Pursuit trap Deoxys to death. </p>

    [SET]
    name: Dual Screener
    move 1: Reflect
    move 2: Light Screen
    move 3: Taunt
    move 4: Stealth Rock / Spikes
    item: Light Clay
    ability: Pressure
    nature: Bold
    evs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p> Instead of setting hazards, this set capitalizes on another support strategy in Deoxys's movepool- Dual Screens. With it's great speed and massive natural bulk, it is almost guaranteed that Deoxys will be able to set up screens to aid it's teammates. Reflect and Light Screen also raise it's own defenses to insane levels, allowing it to take even more hits with impunity. A fast Taunt prevents opponents from taunting you, and also prevents yourself from being set up on. The last slot is for hazards- Stealth Rock is preffered, as it's quick and reliable, but Spikes is also a good option for more damage or if your team already has a Stealth Rocker. </p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p> Some people may look it this set and immediately think that it's outclassed by Espeon and Latias, but it has it's place because of its massive bulk, allowing it to set up more than the frailer Espeon or Latias. Another great niche is it's 'surprise' factor- it doesn't mind spinner switch ins as much as the sets stressing on hazard support. It has Leftovers for steady Recovery, and with the extra bulk the screens provide it is even harder to take down. This set is great for hyper offensive teams, providing extra bulk for frailer sweepers and set up pokemon. Spinblockers are still great partners; a lot of them appreciate the extra protection and can prevent Deoxys's hazards from being spun away. With Reflect, it boosts its defense to such insane levels that even Specially Defensive Tyranitar's Crunch is only a 5HKO.

    [SET]
    name: Toxic Stall
    move 1: Toxic
    move 2: Taunt
    move 3: Recover
    move 4: Agility
    item: Leftovers
    nature: Bold
    ability: Pressure
    EV's: 252 HP / 168 Def / 56 SpD / 32 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p> Though uncommon, this set is extremely useful if played correctly. With it's massive bulk and access to Toxic, Deoxys-D has a pretty easy time tanking hits with impunity as the opponent slowly dies to status. It has a fast Taunt, which means that things like Blissey won't be able to Heal Bell or Wish and Protect. Taunt also stops set up sweepers such as Dragonite and Gyarados in their tracks. Deoxys-D also gets Recover, an extremely useful move on this set- as it allows Deoxys to Toxic stall even better, as many pokemon will struggle to do more than 50% to this behemoth. Finally, in the last slot, it gets Agility, a weird move yet still very effective. After just one Agility, you outspeed every common non choiced pokemon, including SubPass Jolteon and CM Lati@s, which you can Taunt and then slowly Toxic them to death. </p>

    <p> This set plays a lot differently than Deoxys's other sets- mainly because it relies on Toxic to deal damage. In this set, Deoxys relies on hazard support from others (rather than setting them up itself) to weaken the opponent so it has an easier time stalling. This set also uses Deoxys's ability, Pressure, to erase the PP of moves like Gyro Ball, which hits harder as Deoxys gets faster. </p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p> The ev spread may seem weird, but it enables Deoxys to counter certain threats. 32 evs allow you to outspeed Choice Scarfed Rotom-W after an Agility and Taunt it before it can Trick. Maximum investment in HP and the rest into Defense and Special defense allow Deoxys-D to take as many hits as possible- so that it can live to Recover its health back up. However, a spread of 252 HP / 72 Def / 184 SpD / 32 Spe and a Calm nature can also be used- if you want some extra bulk to take Hurricanes from Tornadus-T better. Leftovers are a must on this set, because you'll want all the recovery you can get. Instead of Taunt, Magic Coat can also be used- it allows you to beat pranksters and reflect status and hazards. Night Shade can also be used, if you want to wear down the opponent faster. It also allows you to hit things after you've been Taunted. </p>

    <p> Pranksters, Steel types, Poison types, Magic Bouncers, and Magic Guarders all wall this set, because they are all immune to Toxic, Deoxy-D's only form of causing damage. Great teammates to Deoxys-D are pokemon that can take care of those pokemon- strong Ground types or Pursuiters such as Donphan or Tyranitar are exceptionally great partners. Donphan can spin away hazards that Deoxys-D hates, and at the same time knock out Steel types and Poison types with Earthquake. Tyranitar can hit Steel types hard with Superpower, and pursuit trap Pranksters, Magic Bouncers, and Magic Guarders, while at the same time providing Sandstorm to wear down the opponent even more. </p>

    [SET]
    name: TrickScarf
    move 1: Spikes
    move 2: Trick
    move 3: Stealth Rock
    move 4: Thunder Wave / Taunt / Recover
    item: Choice Scarf
    nature: Timid
    ability: Pressure
    evs: 252 HP / 32 Def / 224 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p> A choice Scarf may seem like the worst item to give a pokemon so support oriented as Deoxys- but this set has got a lot of perks over the other standard sets. With Trick, Deoxys-D can cripple opposing Taunters who think they can outspeed. Trick also cripples opposing Support pokemon such as Ferrothorn or Forretress. Having a Scarf also lessens the threat of opposing Trickers, as they'll still be stuck with a choice item. Trick cripples common switch ins such as spinners and Magic Bouncers, as well as Pranksters. Set up pokemon will also be less of a threat if you can lock them into their set up move. Trick isn't the only good thing about this set- the ability to set hazards even though you're scarfed is another great thing about this. Since switching moves is rarely necessary when setting Spikes, having a scarf won't hinder you at all- and it will even help you squeeze in that last layer of Spikes before opposing max speed Gliscor Taunt you. Stealth Rock adds further support for your team, and can be used both before and after you Trick. The last slot can be used for a number of moves- Thunder Wave cripples opponents so you can outspeed even after you lose your scarf. Taunt shuts down opposing set up pokemon just like in all other sets, and even opposing non-choiced Deoxys. Recover is also a great option to heal up, since this set lacks passive recovery. </p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p> A timid nature and 224 Speed evs allow you to outspeed Scarfed Rotom-W with your Scarf, while still being able to take a lot of hits by maxing out HP and putting the rest into defense. A scarf is needed on all variants of this set, because it's what makes this set unique. There are a few moves Deoxys can use instead of those listed above, however. Psycho Boost can be used to attack and have a bit of offense with your Scarf, but it's really weak without investment, and is very susceptible to punishment by Tyranitar. Night Shade can also be used, and this is generally safer than Psycho Boost, even if it doesn't hit certain pokemon has hard. </p>

    <p> This Deoxys is best for both offensive and defensive teams for it's ability to cripple both Stall and Offense. Just like with the other sets, sweepers love Deoxys because it's hazard support allows them to score useful KO's. Deoxys in turn loves spinblockers such as Gengar for their ability to keep hazards on your opponent's side. </p>


    [Other Options]

    <p> Deoxys-D has a few other options up it's sleeve, but a lot of them are simply done better by the sets listed above. A phazing set with Recycle and a Red Card allows you to use your hazards to damage your opponent. The move Skill Swap can be used on any set to cripple Pranksters, Magic Guarders, and Magic Bouncers. Cosmic Power is also viable if you want to have even more bulk, but this is generally outclassed by the dual screens set. A Calm Mind set is viable if you want to use Deoxys's offensive movepool a bit more. Thunder Wave can also be used on any of the sets for further team support. </p>

    [Checks and Counters]

    <p> Because of Deoxys's extreme bulk and decent speed, many pokemon must resort to super effective moves in order to dent Deoxys. Tyranitar and Scizor are the best counters; as they have Crunch / U-Turn respectively and can both trap and KO Deoxys. Pranksters are also really problematic to deal with; they will always outspeed and Taunt (unless Magic Coat is being used) to shut Deoxys down. Espeon is also extremely problematic, as it's ability prevents Deoxys from setting up. Espeon can even set up on Deoxys, meaning that even the offensive set won't hurt it as much. Finally, Choice Scarf Trickers such as Rotom-W are annoying, as they hinder your ability to set up and Taunt. </p>

    I'd put fire/psycho gem over life orb on the offensive set. Fire Gem gets you the sure 1hko on Scizor, and you're probably only going to use it once, maybe twice on Skarmory, anyway. Psycho gem on the other hand let's you OHKO Tentacruel who could come in hoping to wall you and spin away your hazzards. Psycho Gem STAB Psycho Boost is also strong enough to severely damage frail mons that don't resist it.

    I'd also put Taunt as the main 4th move, recover (maybe) as a slash. You don't want things like Dragonite using you as set up bait and you probably won't find the chance to recover anyway, especially on the offensive set.

    Psychic gem is worth a shot but Fire gem really doesn't help. You're still 2HKO'ing Skarmory. Scizor is a 50% OHKO anyway. I'll put in taunt for AC.

    50% chance to OHKO Scizor isn't really good enough when it has a 94% chance to OHKO you back with U-Turn. Given that Deoxys-D tends to be mainly used on Deo-D + 5 sweeper teams you really want to guarantee that you are killing Scizor on turn 1 otherwise you risk not getting up any hazards whatsoever and being at a huge disadvantage. Fire Gem should be main slash, then LO.

    On fast spiker and offensive spiker I think Stealth Rock should be primary slash, I don't know the last time I saw anyone use Recover on any non-Toxic set.

    You should mention why you only run 208 speed. Is it worth autolosing to faster deo-s's?

    Also, you should probably add a TrickScarf set.
    Show Hide
    name: TrickScarf
    move 1: Spikes
    move 2: Stealth Rock
    move 3: Trick
    move 4: Recover/Taunt/Psychoboost/Nightshade
    item: Choice Scarf
    nature: Timid
    ability: Pressure
    EV's: 252 HP, 4 Sp Def, 252 Spe

    As you can see, I'm not quite sure about the 4th slot yet...

    The trickscarf set should actually just focus on laying down spikes.
    Move 1: Spikes
    Move 2: Superpower
    Move 3: Trick
    Move 4: Taunt/Hidden Power Fire
    This set is nearly guaranteed in getting 2 layers of spikes. Also if the opponent leads with their spinner, just use trick and then taunt them if they have also begun laying down their hazards. Make sure you have enough attack evs to OHKO 252 hp Tyranitar. This works a lot like deoxys-s in ubers.
    On second thought, this doent deserve a set.
    252Atk Deoxys (+Atk) Superpower vs 252HP/0Def Tyranitar (Neutral): 88% - 103% (356 - 420 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO. 25% chance to OHKO.
    If this is getting a set, make sure to mention that it should not lead against tyranitar or scizor.

    Ive used Trick Scarf and I can attest to its effectiveness. I used double layers (SR - Spikes), Trick and a filler move that more often than not was Taunt, but could also be Thunder Wave or Night Shade. Definitely Trick Scarf deserves a mention somewhere, if not a brand new set as it plays slightly differently.

    I have my doubts about the Toxic Staller, seems like a pretty bad set, you cant do absolutely anything to Steel types.

    [Overview]
    This is not true, it's keeping up with the meta just fine.

    ~ Mention the great ease it sets up hazards, thanks to its amazing bulk and deceptively high Speed; it's the premier hazard setter for heavy offensive team

    [Speedy Spiker]

    ~ One of the main reasons to use Deoxys-D is to pack hazards in 1 pokemon, usually a job done by 2 mons. I'd like Stealth Rock to be primary slash.

    ~ Elaborate that Rotom-W is a great partner for speedy Spiker, since it comes in on a Rapid Spin and forces out common Spinners like Starmie, Tentacruel, and Donphan

    ~ You could mention that a spinblocker is nice to keep the hazards up as long as possible. Gengar is the common choice for offensive teams that utilize this Deoxys-D.

    ~ I'd remove all AC mentions of Skill Swap and leave it in OO - not worth an entire moveslot just for Espeon when you can simply pack mons like Scizor / TTar.

    ~ Thunder Wave deserves an AC mention for crippling set-up Sweepers / set up more Spikes from fps / more team support.

    ~ Colbur Berry / Tanga Berry are worth mentioning to set up some extra layers on Ttar / Scizor.

    ~ Mention VoltTurn and high offense mons appreciate best utilize hazards from Deoxys-D.

    [Bulky Spiker & Toxic Stall]

    ~ I've never seen a bulky Spiker and Toxic Stall ever - I'd say it's OO material, imo.

    [Offensive Spikes]

    ~ Probably move up above Toxic Stall and Bulky Spiker if they end up staying.

    ~ Replace Recover with Stealth Rock. This set is not meant to last; it's meant to live hard and fast.

    ~ Slash Modest with Timid to ensure OHKO on max HP Scizor.

    ~ The ability to beat common Rapid Spinners are the main reason to use this set, so spinblockers are not as necessary as compared to other sets. This is worth noting imo.

    ~ slash Thunderbolt to hit Starmie; AC mention Thunder. Thunder is inaccurate but seals the OHKO on Starmie that TB misses.

    ~ AC mention Fire & Electric Gem. Deoxys-D only need the boost once to get the job done most of the time, and LO recoil can hinder its primary role to stack hazards

    ~ Don't mention Taunt; if you're using Taunt mine as well use the Speedy Spiker.

    ~ Fast Scarfers such as Scarf Landorus / Scarf Mence are thus desirable to check sweepers that may try to set up on Deoxys-D.

    ~ Like the Speedy Spiker, Pokemon with lots of firepower really appreciates Deoxys-D's hazard support

    [Checks & Counters]

    ~ Remove Normal-types; none of them prevents Deoxys-D from stacking hazards.

    ~ Remove VoltTurn; it only really fears Scizor's U-turn; any other VoltTurn is set-up bait.

    ~ Add fast set-up sweepers / Sub users, such as Volcarona, Gengar, and Thundurus-T as primary threats.

    ~ Sableye deserves a special mention for Prankster Taunt.

    ~ Mention that Deoxys-D doesn't appreciate Trick Scarf.

    [Dual Screens]

    ~ Deoxys-D pulls of Dual Screens well enough to deserve a mention, especially if Pokemon like Latias have this option mentioned. People still opt for Espeon for Dual Screens, but arguably Deoxys-D can do it equally well, thanks to its bulk and access to SR.

    These are my views on this mon. Other QC members feel free to weigh in.

    Firstly, can we fix up the formatting on this? The slashes and words are meant to have spaces between them (eg Recover / Taunt), it's Hidden Power Fire, not HP Fire, and the EVs are supposed to be in the format HP / Atk / Def / SpA / SpD / Spe (eg 48 HP / 252 SpA / 208 Spe). Have a look at the other revamps to get a better feel for the formatting.

    Right, now that's out of the way, let's get onto the sets. A Modest nature should be the main one on the offensive Spiker set. You need it to guarantee the OHKO on Scizor with HP Fire if you're using a Life Orb (and I cringe at Fire Gem, so run Modest + LO, it looks so much cleaner). By all means, mention Fire/Electric Gem in AC, but I don't want to see as main items. On that hand, I'd say just change the EVs to 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe.

    About the Toxic Stall set, I'd advice that you don't be put off by the "does nothing to Steels" part too much. Apart from Scizor and Jirachi, pretty much no Steel-type can actually hurt you in any way, so you can just PP stall them out of their attacking moves, then force them to struggle. Granted, the rise of Tentacruel, Scizor, and Jirachi have put a damper on this set's effectiveness, but it is still certainly worth testing. EDIT: Oh yeah, I also forgot to mention, that if we're going to use the Agility Toxic set, it's going to need Speed EVs. I think outspeeding Scarf Rotom-W at +2 is a decent benchmark, which you need 32 Speed EVs for (So like, 252 HP / 224 Def / 32 Spe Bold, or you can find a spread that gives you more all-rounded defenses, 252 HP / 168 Def / 56 SpD / 32 Spe Calm).

    Alright, I tested the Dual Screens set, and I'd say it has some use. I'll add it into the analysis.
    As for Scarf+Trick and Shrang's Toxic Stall changes, I haven't looked into that yet but I will ASAP (or as soon as PS starts running again)

    Hi, I wrote the original fast spiker analysis (which is a grammar mess for some reason, don't look at me I didnt do the GP). The item should really be Rocky Helmet. I, too, was a non-believer until I tried it, it's amazing. Leftovers is mediocre, it is a more consistent item than Colbur Berry and Tanga Berry (Dark and Bug resist berries), but I can't think of any time where I would have preferred to have Leftovers :/ Recover can be used, but NEVER at the expense of Taunt, which is the second most important move after Spikes. Deoxys-D would not be in OU without Taunt. Magic Coat is significantly more situational, Prankster and faster Taunts are pretty uncommon in my extensive (think 1000+ matches with Deoxys-D leading) experience.

    On the offensive spikes set, thunderbolt is really underwhelming, yes it should be slashed in, but honestly you should note that it doesn't ohko Starmie, Tentacruel laughs it off. If you're looking to bluff, Fire Gem Hp Fire is the way to go imo, get Forretress, Scizor, maybe Ferrothorn (??). I like Life Orb, but it gives the surprise away really fast, which is kind of the point of the set. You don't need to maximize damage output over several turns, you only need to OHKO their rapid spinner or Scizor, which is why I like the original Fire Gem, Electric Gem, and Psychic Gem options better.

    Summary:
    Rocky Helmet should be the main item on the fast spiker. Mention Tanga and Colbur (I strongly recommend Colbur it is the shit)
    Taunt ALL THE THINGS
    Thunderbolt is really crappy, it can be slashed in because it makes sense in theory, in actuality it's kind of crap.


    EDIT: On T-wave: I think it should be mentioned, but my main issue is that there is so much Deo-D can do, it's a massive waste to lose a move for T-wave even in the new metagame which is markedly faster.

    Myzozoa, thanks for your quality input!

    Just want to note that Tbolt is primarily for Starmie and I guess Skarmory if they decide to set up on Deoxys-D for some reason; Tentacruel is removed by Psycho Boost. Also I would think Life Orb would also be a good enough bluff, since the LO recoil does not happen until it attacks with its special moves, at which point the surprise is out.

    Electrolyte the Speedy Spiker & Dual Screen's set should look like this:

    name: Speedy Spiker
    move 1: Stealth Rock
    move 2: Spikes
    move 3: Taunt
    move 4: Night Shade / Magic Coat

    name: Dual Screens
    move 1: Reflect
    move 2: Light Screen
    move 3: Taunt
    move 4: Stealth Rock / Spikes

    Ok, I tested out Toxic Stall again, and I have to say I don't like it one bit. The only useful thing it does is Taunt, which the Speedy Spiker set does much better, and Toxic, which really isn't worth its own set. It has great speed, that true, but it can't really utilize its speed well, because it doesn't have an attacking move. It also needs to be much faster; even at +2, Deoxys-D is outsped by 252 neutral ScarfedMoxieMence and 252+ ScarfedRotomW. If it were to stay, I would put Timid nature to outspeed both of the above mentioned pokemon, and then give it Night Shade, or some other attacking move, so it's not just sitting there after it Taunts and Toxics. I do like Dual Screens however, I think that set should stay. What does the QC team think?

    I'm all for relegating Toxic Stall to OO. Deoxys-D's main niche is hazard stacking. You got my support.

    I agree as well -- Toxic stall Deoxys-D was never good in BW1, and with all the new, faster threats in BW2, it struggles to do much at all. Not to mention it can't touch Steel-types. It's just not playing to Deoxys-D's strengths.

    As rey pointed out earlier, TrickScarf is a good set. Maybe it doesn't merit its own, but give it a big AC mention on the speedy Spiker set if you don't write its own set up.

    Okay, I know Toxic Stall Deo-D is not the best or easiest-to-use set around, but can we stop making comments like "it can't touch Steel-types"? The fact that it can't touch them is pretty irrelevant, IMO. While yes, you will have a hard time defeating Scizor and Jirachi, every other Steel has no way of hurting Deoxys-D at all, while all do is just Taunt them, then PP stall their attacking move. For example, you have a scenario like:

    Deoxys-D vs Ferrothorn:
    - Deoxys-D uses Taunt. Ferrothorn can't use *insert support move*. Either, Ferro switches out, or it spams Power Whip/Gyro Ball, which won't do shit to Deo-D, who drains that PP twice as quickly with Pressure. The set can be devastating with hazard support.

    As for Scizor and Jirachi, those are just Pokemon you should take on with your team. It's not too difficult. I'm using Deoxys-D on a stall team right now (I know, stall in BW2, shrang using stall, right?), and it's actually really good. With Taunt, it stops stuff like last-mon Reuniclus sweeps, and if you can get your hazards up (not too hard), Deo-D can just sit there and laugh at pretty much everything that tries to take it on.

    I don't think that that the Agility Toxic set is viable right now. If steel types was the only problem then this set would be viable, but this set has far greater problems. First of all Tentacruel. He spins away your hazards and Scalds you to death. You have a spinblocker? No problem, SubToxic Tenta can beat them all. Then there is also Starmie that also spins away your hazards, doesn't care about Toxic, and can also beat any spin-blocker. The only downfall of Starmie is that it can be Pursuited. And then there are also the other spinners such as Forretress, which can simply Volt-Switch as you go to your Ghost and Pursuit trap it. Also don't forget Scald / Lava Plume which fuck you up. Finally why are we ignoring crits? The chances of a crit happening after all those turns that you spend setting up are not in your favor. So the opponent's choiced Dnite / Terrakion / Breloom / Haxorus / Latios / Hydreigon has a very realistic chance to crit you after 4-5 hits, before they die from Toxic stall. And this makes this set soooo unreliable.

    So in order for this set to be used effectively you want partners to eliminate problematic steels, partners to deal with every spinner, and even then you still have to deal with all the crits that are going to screw you.

    This is why when i used this set, i wasn't using Agility but Sub, and i had Zapdos as a partner to Baton Pass an agility to Deoxys-D. But of 'course this can't be called a set...

    Just my 2 cents...

    Alright, I'm moving Toxic Stall to OO, and putting it in as one of the main OO options, if none of the other QC members disagree.

    As for Trick+Scarf, I guess it's ok. I used it as a lead, but I guess it doesn't work best that way because if the opponent also leads with a scarfer than you're pretty screwed. The set is supposed to try to get rid of its item ASAP, because the only other worthwile option is setting up Spikes, and that's only a three turn cover up that's easily thwarted by Rapid Spin. The set does have its merits though; it really fucks any other hazard pokemon that think they can come in, and it also throws the middle finger at Espeon and Scizor. Tyranitar is still a massive counter, however, unless you can lock it into SR first turn. Trick Scarf also screws set up sweepers, and it also shits all over other Deoxys-D sets. The surprise factor is great, but other than setting up Spikes and Taunting it is really kind of useless after it Tricks away its Scarf. Then it's just another Speedy Spiker. Here's what I think the Trick set should look like:
    name: Choice Scarf
    move 1: Trick
    move 2: Spikes
    move 3: Taunt
    move 4: Recover / Stealth Rock
    item: Choice Scarf
    nature: Timid
    ability: Pressure
    evs: 252 HP / 32 Def / 224 Spe

    224 Spe EVs is all Deoxys-D needs to outspeed Scarfed Rotom-W. I moved the rest of the EVs into Defense to make it more bulky. What does the QC team think?

    Yeah, definitely don't underestimate this thing. shrang let me borrow his team, and aside from one of his Pokemon being questionable (unfortunately), Deoxys-D is fucking awesome. I know the premise of Agility, but I wonder if Cosmic Power might be better instead. You still can't have anyone really set up on you unless they have Taunt. I don't know too many Pokemon higher up in Deoxys-D's Speed bracket that commonly uses it. It might be worth a consideration with the Night Shade slash.

    Aside from that, get it out of OO - it's still pretty good in BW2 so long as you have ways of eliminating Pokemon like Metagross and Jirachi.

    I think that Agility is very necessary, though Cosmic Power is certainly welcome. The only problem I have with Toxic Stall is its effectiveness and its lack of other purpose. Sure, you're fast at +2, and you can taunt others before they taunt you, but you're still susceptible to Pranksters. I also think that the speed is wasted; you set up to +2 just to Taunt something and then Toxic them. I like the concept of Agility. I really do. But I think we're wasting its usefulness by just spamming Toxic- perhaps something more useful like Dual Screens or Hazards would make the set a bit more speed worthy.

    There is no "wasting its usefulness". It's a set it performs competently and a niche not occupied by other Pokemon. The fact that you might prefer it as a Spiker is beside the point.

    Thunder Wave should be slashed in the 4th slot on Scarf Deo-D imo. Thunder Wave at least allows you to cripple things like Dragonite and Gyarados post-boost, while Taunt and Recover give you absolutely no offensive leverage. Recover and Taunt have merits post-Trick against stall so they should probably stay slashed though.

    move 1: Spikes
    move 2: Trick
    move 3: Stealth Rock
    move 4: Thunder Wave / Taunt / Recover

    I'd also slash Thunder Wave on the Fast Spiker set.

    No, I'm not saying that it's useless, I'm just suggesting that there may be other things for Deoxys-Defense to do. If QC thinks it deserves a set, then I'd love to put it up. However, I think there should just be something more to that set than just Taunting and throwing Toxic around. However, I'll leave it as it is for now until I can get a clear answer from the QC.

    EDIT: Will add Tobes's changes and write up Scarf Deo-D ASAP
