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.
