Beta Color Alien by Drifter-Dx Beta Color Alien by Drifter-Dx
hi guys another beta coloration, only this
one is a little different.

Deoxys, the virus pokemon, born from an alien virus exposed and mutated
by beams of light in outer space. it is able to change it's form to adapt to different
environments and battle situations. these days one would find him easily in OR/AS,
but in the days of the third generation of Pokemon, it was a different story.

when deoxys first debuted, he was the strangest thing I and my friends ever saw,
his ability to change form when traded to a different game, and with the movie
Destiny Deoxys fresh in our minds, we so badly wanted him.

in those days, Deoxys was a Mystery Gift Pokemon, one that had to be obtained
by traveling to a real life location. they would receive the Aurora Ticket in game,
 travel by boat to the secluded Birth Island, and solve a cryptic puzzle to make this
Alien pokemon appear

but these event locations were far away; a fact that disgruntled many players who couldn't
travel, including my friends and I. in those days there were rumors of an alternate
way of getting deoxys. by going to the moon using a rocket in Mossdeep City, sadly
this was false, and many were resorted to using Action Replays; and at the time, these
machines were very hard to come by.

i managed to borrow a AR and finally reached Birth Island, and captured Deoxys. 
then shared the AR with my friends so they could capture their own.

Deoxys still captivates me to this day, and as i studied him, i found out he had different
overworld sprites. Deoxys would take Attack form in Fire red, and Defense form in Leaf green.
it seems in the beta game, they wanted to represent the different forms, but decided to
go with the normal form as the overworld sprite.

so for fun, i gave the team sprite from X/Y (right) and the B/W sprites of Deoxys (left)
the overworld sprites from FR and LG. (middle)

now that remember the rumor, and look to OR/AS, i think nintendo intended to give
players a nod to the past, when we dreamed to battle deoxys in space, or are laughing
at us XD

well that's all

Deoxys belongs to Nintendo

I don't know if you've already done this or not, but I would love to see your original Deoxys in this style.
