- Earn up to five additional daily Raid Passes by spinning Gyms (on top of 2 Daily Passes from Season of Light bonuses)

Appearing in 5- Star Raids, Raid timer is set to 1 hour. Deoxys will respawn post Raid.
Tips for shiny Hunting Deoxys
Our Tips for Shiny Hunting Deoxys can help you get a shiny Deoxys! When you are rushing to do as many Raids as possible in 3 hours, it’s best to have the easier fights that require less coordination.
- Shiny odds for Deoxys should be ~1/10 fights during Raid Day.
- Use optimal counters and storm through as many fights as you can.
- Pick areas with multiple easy to access Gyms
- Use Remote Raiding to minimise downtime and coordinate with a second Raid party if possible
- You should be able to land 10 – 15 Raids during this time.
