Speed Deoxys Pokemon GO is the newest form of the legendary Pokemon available as a Raid.
Deoxys, a Generation III legendary first introduced in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, has four forms: Attack, Defense, Speed and Normal. Other forms of Deoxys have appeared in Pokemon Go Raids.
Speed Form isn't the best version of Deoxys in the mobile AR game, but players still need to defeat it in raids. Here are the best counters for the Speed Forme Deoxys raid.
