Deoxys Is Headed To Pokémon Black/White 2 In May [Update]

By Ishaan . April 25, 2013 . 12:30pm

Update: The Pokémon Company just got in touch to let us know that Pokémon Black/White compatibility was mentioned by mistake. Deoxys will only be available for Pokémon Black/White 2.


Mythical Pokémon Deoxys will be available via Wi-Fi distribution for Pokémon Black/White 2 next month in the U.S. From May 8th through May 31st, you’ll be able to add Deoxys to your games via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.


Additionally, Deoxys is also headed to the Pokémon Trading Card Game as a powerful Deoxys-EX card in the new Pokémon TCG: Black & WhitePlasma Freeze expansion, which will be available in stores in the U.S. on the same day.


Once you have Deoxys in Pokémon Black/White 2, you can bring it to Nacrene City to have it switch between its Normal, Attack, Defense and Speed forms. Each one has a distinct appearance. More information on this Deoxys will be made available at a later date.

    Hopefully it isn’t like the other promotion where you had to have B/W and B/W2 to get the Pokemon they were handing out.

    • Guest

      It says B/W B2/W2 only….

  • Jesse Torres

    Finally, after waiting many years.

  • Argama

    Is this strictly for US only~?

    I got Keldeo through Wifi last time(I’m from the Philippines)~

    • Internet is Crash

      if it says it’s wi-fi, it can be received anywhere as long you have a US cartridge. Too bad the meloetta event was local US (specifically distributed at Gamestop -__-) so we didnt get the chance to get one…
      well…I had my ways to get a legit one :>

      • Argama

        Ohhh, Ok thanks~

  • Ben Sylvia

    Oh don’t tell me, Deoxys is getting a new forme too?

    Next “big announcement” for X and Y will either be hover tank forme Genesect or HP Forme Deoxys XD

    EDIT: I’ll just stick with my NASA Deoxys.

  • Suicunesol

    BW2 only huh?

    Oh well. Deoxys is pretty unappealing anyway. I much prefer Meloetta distributed via wifi…

  • rurin

    Yay! I never got the original Deoxys for I’m happy it’s coming to B/W2 :)

  • Franky Oda Abraham

    Why no love for Celebi… seriously only official Legendary I dont have… If im
    correct it has NEVER been released here in any form for ANY version of the game…

    UPDATE: Never mind guess it came out here in 2011 and I missed it… only time ever…

    • Sardorim

      Deoxys makes the most sense for promoting Pokemon X and Y though B/W2.

      • Samurai Don

        Except Deoxys isn’t promoting Pokémon X and Y when he’s promoting the TCG: Black & White—Plasma Freeze expansion

  • Cool. I wonder if they will offer Meloetta through Wi-Fi… Hopefully.

  • Eric Harris

    I’m glad I didn’t wait for Pokemon Y. Keldeo, Meoletta, and now Deoxys. I’m hoping eventually they will rerelease the wifi pokemon from Gen IV

  • Visa Vang

    Awesome. I don’t have to go to GameStop to download it.

  • Vash bane


  • Sardorim

    Awww… So it’s B/W2 only. Such a shame, oh well….

  • HassanJamal

    Deoxys was so awesome to own. Its design was especially great :)
