Could you be more specific about what you do not understand? Are you more curious about how this works in the game mechanically, or how it works in the game's lore? What is confusing about the example you gave?
Fizz can you stop editing my posts.
The title you are using is grammatically incorrect -- but okay, as you wish.
Thanks.

I'm pretty sure this simply means that the move reminder can teach teleport to Deoxys. If you change it to speed form before going to him, then he can teach double team but not teleport.

Hey superswablu,

Unlike Arceus's Judgment move that is based on the plate it uses, Deoxys's move sets are unique, depending on the form. For every form, there is a specific move set that it learns as it levels up. The Speed Form Deoxys has the highest speed stat of all Pokemon, which would make sense for it to learn a lot of priority moves which includes Extreme Speed and Double Team. Attack Form Deoxys learns strong offensive moves (Zap Cannon, etc.), and Defense Form Deoxys learns strong defensive moves (Mirror Coat, Counter, etc.)
