Speed Forme Deoxys Raid Guide (EX Raid)
Speed Forme Deoxys is a Tier 5 EX Raid Boss in Pokémon GO. Speed Forme Deoxys Counters in Pokémon GO are strong Ghost and Dark-types such as Gengar, Mewtwo, Weavile, and Tyranitar. Speed Forme Deoxys is a Psychic type that has the following stats:
- Max CP: 2879
- 230 Attack
- 218 Defense
- 137 Stamina
Speed Forme Deoxys has a Raid Boss CP of 45802, can be caught with the following CP Values:
- 1568 – 1645 CP with no weather boost (Level 20)
- 1960 – 2056 CP with Windy weather (Level 25)
SF Deoxys can theoretically be duoed by high-level Gengar teams in Fog weather with Best Friend Bonuses. Besides that challenge to strive for, this is a rather middle of the ground Deoxys Forme, it isn’t a pushover like Attack Forme and not a monster like Defense Forme. Ideally, you should attempt a Speed Forme Deoxys with 4-8 high-level players, and 9-20 lower level players.
This guide lists the best counters, Forme stats, and possible moves SF Deoxys can have in Pokémon GO. For more information about Deoxys’ role in the Pokémon GO metagame, read our Deoxys Formes and their place in the Pokémon GO meta article.
Speed Forme Deoxys Counters
Speed Forme Deoxys raid counters are very similar to the previously listed Forme counters, so you should already have some of these powered up by the time you face this Forme of Deoxys. A table that compares Time-to-Win and Death Count is available below; however, this is a formatted list to show and explain the top counters in realistic situations.

Speed Forme Deoxys Movesets
As of now, these are the moves that Speed Forme Deoxys has access to in the Game Master:
- Charge Beam Electric, fast
- Zen Headbutt Psychic, fast
- Psycho Boost Psychic, charged
- Thunderbolt Electric, charged
- Swift Normal, charged
Its moves are rather lackluster and will not do serious immediate damage to your Pokémon. Mainly, be on the lookout for Psycho Boost, as that will destroy any Gengar you have on the scene. This is a battle against time, not against Deoxys itself, because the bulk of this Forme is what makes it difficult.
|Weather||Pro Attacker||Pro Deoxys|
|Partly Cloudy||–||Boosts Normal Swift|
|Rainy||Boosts Super Effective Bug attacks||Boosts Electric Charge Beam and Thunderbolt|
|Fog||Boosts Super Effective Ghost and Dark Attacks||–|
|Windy||–||Boosts Psychic Zen Headbutt and Psycho Boost|
If you do not have access to any of the listed counters above, the following will be more serviceable than any Aggron you could throw its way:
- Cacturne with Sucker Punch / Dark Pulse
- Salamence with Bite / Draco Meteor
- Yanmega with Bug Bit / Bug Buzz
- Drifblim with Hex / Shadow Ball
- Dialga with Dragon Breath / Draco Meteor
- Alakazam with Psycho Cut / Shadow Ball
- Spiritomb with Feint Attack / Shadow Ball
- Gardevoir with Charge Beam / Shadow Ball
- Metagross with Bullet Punch / Meteor Mash
Speed Forme is the most balanced of the Deoxys Formes. As previously stated, don’t expect something as hard as the Defense Forme, nor the easy solo that came with Attack Forme.
