Pokémon Go Enigma Week 2020 has begun and this means that you can now get a shiny Staryu and evolve it into Starmie. Unlike the previous seven-day event for Dragons, Enigma Week doesn’t have a host of tasks and rewards, but there is a Deoxys in five-star raid battles. If you’re struggling to defeat the shiny Deoxys, here you’ll discover its weakness and appropriate counters to help you beat it.
Know in advance that Enigma Week 2020 only lasts until August 14th at 21:00 BST. This is when it will be replaced by the final Ultra Unlock festivity of the month which is Unova Week. And, aside from these weeks, there is also a community day which boasts shiny Magikarp.
But, away from all of the above, below you’ll discover how to defeat Deoxys in Pokémon Go by knowing its weakness and using suitable counters.
How to defeat Deoxys in Pokémon Go
You can defeat Deoxys in Pokémon Go during Enigma Week 2020.
Deoxys will only be appearing in five-star raid battles for Pokémon Go until August 14th at 21:00 BST, so you will need to defeat the beast before then.
There is a chance for you to catch a shiny variant of the DNA creature, but it’s by no means an easy contest.
However, provided you know its weakness and use suitable counters, you should be able to topple it.
Pokémon Go Deoxys counters and weakness
Deoxys has a weakness to Bug, Dark, and Ghost-type attacks in Pokémon Go, so suitable counters include Chandelure and Gengar.
It’s the Deoxys Normal Forme that you’re attempting to beat in Pokémon Go during Enigma Week 2020, and other counters to exploit its weakness include Darkrai, Weavile, and Volcarona.
Avoid brining a Fighting-type creature into the five-star raid battle at all costs, and – if possible – use any of the below creatures:
