Default Deoxys ~ Name Origin

I can't believe I just realized this but Deoxy is the first part of DNA. Is that where Deoxys came from (most likely...) if so, why did the choose that name for this monkey-like Pokemon? Anyone know? By the way, for all u ppl who don't know, DNA stands for DeoxyriboNucleicAcid! go me!

Well, the ruby pokedex info states the following:

"The DNA of a space virus underwent a sudden mutation upon exposure to a laser beam and resulted in DEOXYS. The crystalline organ on this POKéMON's chest appears to be its brain."

That's most likely why. ^^

I knew Deoxys was a Space Virus mutation, but i never realised where its name came from till now lol... I do know where Absol got its name from though; the word Absolution, meaning "Total power", which explains Absols extremely high attack...

I know what gender Deoxys is! I was telling my Mom about Deoxys and she said the Deox(somethin, I cant remember the hole thing ) has something to do with women. Yes Deoxys has a gender and it...Female ?!

P.S. Absol really gets his name from being, "ABSOL"utely Everything !!! Well, isn't he Absolutely cool, cute, handsome, pretty, powerful, tough, sweet, annoying, fuzzy, loyal, smart, etc........

Most of us people, like me, already know this. DNA = Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid. Well, therefore, his name comes fro DNA. Very simple

No, not Deoxysribose. It's Deoxysribo Nucleic Acid. Known that sense last year, in fifth grade . . .

About Absol's name meaning, this was my understanding:

Sol = Sun
Ab = Prefix meaning 'opposite'

Absol = opposite of sun, or 'dark.' It is a Dark Pokemon, after all.

I didn't even know you could get deoxy on R/S.
I only thought you could get it on FR/LG/WB.
You learn a new thing every day.
