Niantic announced this week that Attack Forme Deoxys will soon be taking over EX Raids, replacing the Normal Form version we’ve fought over the last 2 months.
Although the new monster will be a nice addition to the collection, unfortunately, he’ll not be worth much more than that as his defensive stat (unless Niantic changes it) is worse than a Caterpie.
The good news is that, due to his weaknesses, this guy can be soloed if you have a strong account and use the right counters.
For those of you planning to fight & obtain an Attack Forme Deoxys while he’s available, here’s a quick look at what you’ll need to know.
Weaknesses: Bug type, Ghost type, Dark Moves
Weavile— Feint Attack/Foul Play
Honchkrow— Snarl/Dark Pulse
Absol— Snarl/Dark Pulse
Gengar— Shadow Claw/Shadow Ball
A Mewtwo with a Shadow Ball Charge Move will work also.
100% CP: 1474
100% Weather Boosted CP: 1842
Attack Forme Deoxys is weather boosted in Windy weather.
Best Moveset: Poison Jab/Dark Pulse
Attack Forme Deoxys will become available after Thursday, December 20th, with the next wave of EX Raid invites.
