Strategy Using Attack Form Deoxys

Well, as you could've guessed, Attack Deoxys has high attack strengths(both have a base of 180). Not only this, it has a base speed of 150, meaning you're going to have trouble hitting Deoxys first.
The moveset is simple, use whatever move you feel will prove more useful to you, maybe have a different HP if you want, but it is Fighting to take out Dark Pokemon. I didn't suggest moves like calm mind or Recover simply because the time it takes to use these moves leaves Deoxys open to attacks, and with extremely poor defenses it won't last long.
Again, the EV's and nature are intended to boost speed. If you want, you could make Deoxys a Physical sweeper too, with moves like Psycho boost, Brick break, Shadow Ball, Return.
Deoxys could be beaten by something that is faster and is a special/physical sweeper, or has the moves Shadow ball/Crunch in its moveset. However, as stated previously, Deoxys speed is something to contend with, and this gives Deoxys an advantage in battle.
Overall, Attacking Deoxys has some of the best stats in the entire game, even though its a legendary, it still has its weaknesses.
