Trainers will want to form a team of Dark-type Pokémon or strong Pokémon that know Dark-type moves as Normal Forme Deoxys is weak to them. The counters below will give you a chance of defeating Normal Forme Deoxys.

  • Mewtwo – Psycho Cut/Confusion and Shadow Ball

Having multiples of the same Pokémon on your team is acceptable if you don’t have some of the suggestions listed above. I have several high-level Tyranitar that could take the place of others if I needed them to.
