Pokémon GO fans might be wondering if players can trade Deoxys, the current Mythical Pokémon raid present in the game. Unfortunately, since they are a Mythical Pokémon, they cannot be traded between players.

Despite its initial release in July 2016, Pokémon GO continues to receive large content additions that radically transform the nature of the game. One of these additions Niantic made was adding raid boss Pokémon, which are large Pokémon that require the help of several trainers in order to take down. In return for taking down these Pokémon, players receive the opportunity to catch them, but they don't always get a chance to exchange them between players.

Certain Pokémon in Pokémon GO, including Deoxys, are labeled as Mythical Pokémon. These Pokémon are quite rare and are also only encountered in special ways. With few exceptions, these Mythical Pokémon are unable to be exchanged between players.

Mythical Pokémon have other limitations as well. They require an incredibly large amount of Stardust to unlock their second Charged Attack. Additionally, they require 20 kilometers of walking with them as a buddy before unlocking a candy and they are unusable in the Premier Cup of the GO Battle League. It is worth noting that Legendary Pokémon are also banned from that competition.
