Deoxys has arrived once again at Pokémon GO.
The next Pokémon on the list to take over the Tier Five raids in Pokémon GO arrived last Thursday, and it’s part of the species that has been missing in action since the year 2019. It’s not just part of a species, but a part of a variation. Defense Forme Deoxys has finally returned to Pokémon GO.
The Defense Forme Deoxys, like all four of its Deoxys Formes: Defense, Normal, Attack, and Speed are all the varieties of the DNA Pokémon, was originally released exclusively to the EX Raids. This meant that you had to be able to raid at some EX-capable gyms so you can get an invite and be lucky enough to live in an area that is populated with a number of Pokémon GO players that you could go to in order to complete the EX Raid. It was a pre-Remote Raiding.
The four formes of Deoxys have succeedingly featured briefly in the standard Tier Five raids for about a week during the Ultra Bonus event in 2019. Since then, however, we have only witnessed the Normal Forme Deoxys return when it was featured in the Ultra Bonus 2020 with a Shiny release.
However, Niantic did not specify if the Defense Forme Deoxys would be Shiny-capable. According to them, the Mythical Pokémon Deoxys will be making its appearance in the Defense Forme in the five-star raids that begin from Thursday, July 1, 2021, to Friday, July 16, 2021.
Meanwhile, for Deoxys’s successor, they specifically said that it has a Shiny chance. They stated that the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo will be making its appearance in the five-star raids beginning Friday, July 16, 2021, to Friday of July 23, 2021.
If you are lucky enough, you may even meet a Shiny Mewtwo. There are different Pokémon that will be making their appearances in the five-star raids on the second day of the Pokémon GO Fest 2021. However, only Mewtwo will be appearing as a GO Battle League encounter for the Trainers rank 20 and up on the Pokémon GO Fest’s second day.
While it is still not confirmed, it is best to operate under the knowledge that Deoxys might not be Shiny-capable in the game during this feature. Niantic might only see this feature as the first that a lot of trainers will be able to get ahold of Defense Forme Deoxys.
