Contrary to its classification in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, [http://www.pokemoncenter.com/info/Pokemon_Characters PokémonCenter.com] notably calls Deoxys a Legendary Pokémon rather than a Mythical Pokémon, creating some confusion over its official designation.

===[[Legendary Duo#Manaphy_and_Phione|Sea Guardians]]===

'''[[Phione]]''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese:]] '''フィオネ''' ''Phione'') is a {{type|Water}} Pokémon known as the Sea Drifter Pokémon, and '''[[Manaphy]]''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''マナフィ''' ''Manaphy'') is a {{type|Water}} Pokémon known as the Seafaring Pokémon. Phione live in warm seas, using the inflation sac on their heads to search for food and to drift in packs, always returning to the place of their birth. Manaphy are born on cold seafloors, also swimming great distances to return to their birthplace, and are born with a wondrous power to bond with any kind of Pokémon. Together, these two Pokémon species make up a Mythical duo of a parent and child.
Manaphy has the unique ability among Mythical Pokémon to breed with {{p|Ditto}} in captivity, producing Phione, which is somewhat weaker than Manaphy. This is the only legitimate way to obtain a Phione in-game.
Phione's status as a Mythical Pokémon is disputed, with even official sources contradicting one another. Further information can be found [[Phione#Mythical status|here]].
Manaphy was first made available to those who pre-ordered tickets for [[M09|Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea]] in Japan. Any who pre-ordered tickets received a voucher which could be redeemed from June 17 to August 31, 2006 to access [[Pokémon Ranger|Pokémon Ranger's]] [[Ranger Net]] mission, "Recover the Precious Egg!". Once completed, a Manaphy egg could be transferred to {{pkmn|Diamond and Pearl}} and hatched. This mission was later made available to other areas of the world, and Manaphy has since been released through distribution as most other Mythical Pokémon.
