is the name given to a pair of bio-mechanical beings originating from
Its outer body - which can
change between several forms at will - is made of a currently unidentified
substance, and surrounds a crystalline core which acts as the brain and power
source. So long as the core remains unharmed, Deoxys' regeneration capacity is
One Deoxys has a purple core,
while the other has a green core. This seems to be purely for identification
purposes, as their abilities remain the same.
Samples of Deoxys' outer body
material have been shown to contain almost bacterial qualities. These
were extracted and studied intensively by
Deoxys' visual capabilities are easily disturbed by the electromagnetic emissions of machines and organic life forms.
One of the two Deoxys was first sighted over the
ice fields by
Professor Rodric Lund back in 1993. Lund was the man to name the species, inspired by their unusual forms which somewhat resembled DNA.
Due to their unauthorized entry through the atmosphere, the purple core Deoxys which managed to escape its rock prison found itself preyed upon by
Rayquaza who seemingly destroyed it. Four years later, this same Deoxys returned and underwent a thorough search to find the green core of its partner in LaRousse City,
Hoenn. The odd way it went about searching caused much confusion amongst LaRousse's inhabitants.
Spoiler Warning - Major plot details follow
The Deoxys were created by
scientists as a response to learning about
Mewtwo's existence on earth. It is estimated they came into existence around 1990FD,
and are named Denai and Reina, respectively.
With their primary function as guardians of the moon, the Deoxys are treated as no less of a species because of their demi-artificial nature and are thus both well developed in their reasoning and morals.
Eclipse have tried to destroy these guardians in the past - it is thought their descent to earth encapsulated in meteoric rock had been one of these attempts. Studies of this rock showed its composition nullified any attempts the Deoxys might make to regenerate.
