The company states that Deoxys will be mafe available “through a special character distribution via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service”.

If you need a refresher on Deoxys, he is a Psychic-type creature from another world. According to “Pokémon professors” Deoxys is believed to have been “a virus of alien origin” which became mutated and ultimately turned into Deoxys as fans know it. Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 will give players the chance to change Formes with the Pokemon. If Trainers need to make a switch, they can bring Deoxys to Nacrene City to have it shift between Normal Forme, Attack Forme, Defense Forme, and Speed Forme.
