Developer Niantic has revealed all the exciting Pokémon GO Season of Light content that Trainers can look forward to this September, including the limited-time five-star Raids. Among the many featured Pokémon is the mythical Psychic Pokémon, Deoxys.

This pocket monster has had several appearances in-game dating back to 2018, but for the current season, Pokémon Trainers will have greater chances to catch Deoxys and its variations. This guide details whether a Shiny Deoxys is available in Pokémon GO and how to catch it.

Is There A Shiny Deoxys In Pokémon GO?

As you might have guessed, yes, there is a Shiny form of Deoxys in Pokémon GO, but only for a limited time. Specifically, the Pokémon will feature in the five-star Raids in-game with a chance to encounter its Shiny form in the wild.

Trainers can prepare to battle with Deoxys and its four variations during these raids for two weeks, starting on 1st September 2022. Below, we’ve outlined the complete schedule for these five-star Raids and which Dexoys will spawn in the wild:

  • Normal Forme Deoxys: 1st - 13th September 2022
  • Attack Forme Deoxys: 1st - 13th September 2022
  • Defense Forme Deoxys: 1st - 13th September 2022
  • Speed Forme Deoxys: 1st - 13th September 2022

Additionally, Niantic will have a limited-time event, Deoxys Raid Day, scheduled for 11th September 2022, between 2 pm to 5 pm local time. This event provides yet another opportunity to catch Deoxys multiple times to aid in evolving the Pokémon faster and making them more powerful.

Similarly, catching Deoxys will grant Trainers three Candies and 100 Stardust specifically for that Pokémon to increase their CP and HP. Furthermore, catching duplicates of Deoxys can reward Trainers with more Candy and 50 XP when transferring them to Professor Willow, helping with the Pokémon’s progression.

Guaranteed Trainers have enough Poké Balls and storage capacity; this month is the best time to add Deoxys and its Shiny forms to their Pokédex. Also, Trainers can learn how to fully master Deoxys by knowing the best Deoxys moveset, counters, and weaknesses in Pokémon GO.

Lastly, Trainers can take advantage of the various seasonal bonuses available, including increasing damage inflicted on Pokémon when engaged in raids remotely and increasing Incense effectiveness when moving.
