Sp atk:242
Sp def:99

When changing forme Deoxys's stats will change too. Also, what moves will you use on Deoxys?

Check in with "The Judge" too. He'll tell you what IVs Deoxys has maxed.

OK, so using Serebii's IV Calculator I've calculated that your Deoxys is in its Normal Forme, and its IVs should be around 31/15-16/31/31/18/25-26. If it was me, I would Soft Reset and try to get a better one. If you're beyond that point, though, keeping it is fine too.

Let's use the process of elimination to see how it should be used.
First of all, Deoxys-N is outclassed and shouldn't be used at all. So that's one forme down.
Deoxys-A requires max Attack, Special Attack, and Speed, which this Deoxys doesn't have. So that's another one down.
And last but not least, Deoxys-D is outclassed and also should be running a defensive nature.
So that means you're going to be running Deoxys-Speed!

TL;DR Soft reset it if you can, if not, use Deoxys-Speed with the following set:

Deoxys-Speed @ Focus Sash
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Taunt
- Stealth Rock
- Knock Off
- Spikes / Magic Coat

Thank you so much. I dont do that soft reset but thank you for explaining what he is and should be. I didnt really plan on using him tbh so im glad he isnt all that.
No problem, my pleasure :)
