Arceus (アルセウス) is the 493rd Pokémon in the Pokédex. It can potentially be any of the 18 known types of Pokémon, and it is known as the Alpha Pokémon.

Arceus's different forms

Arceus uses the Multitype Ability, an Ability that changes its type depending on the Plate that it is holding. Without holding a Plate, it is a Normal-Type.

Arceus doesn't evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.

Arceus is in the Undiscovered Egg Group; like most Legendary Pokémon Arceus cannot breed. It takes Arceus 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Arceus takes on the appearance of a deity with a yellow chain-like structure on its midsection. The chain-like structure resembles the Red Chain that Team Galactic uses to take control of Dialga and Palkia.

[edit] Gender Differences

Arceus is a Genderless Pokémon Species.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Arceus is one of the four Generation IV Event Pokémon, and therefore requires the Azure Flute, which is an event-only item that unfortunately Nintendo has no intention of ever releasing. If you manage to get the Azure Flute onto your game somehow, go to where you fought Dialga/Palkia and step on the starting stone. The game will say, "Do you want to play the Azure Flute?" Say yes, and the Hall of Origin will appear, leading you to Arceus, at the top.

Currently the only legitimate ways of obtaining Arceus have been through official Nintendo Pokemon Events associated with Pokémon Movie 12 These can be recognized as US versions have the OT TRU being that they were distributed at Toys 'R Us. Arceus has also been released under the OT Michina in Australia, MICHINA across Europe, Eigakan in Japan, and Cinnema in South Korea - in the alphabet of their respective languages.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Arceus appears twice in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, once as the end boss of the extra mission "Pledge to Arceus," and a second time as the last boss Pokémon in the Light Temple, the final Past Mission.

Arceus can be found at any of the Tower levels after completing Team Battle EX-6 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.

Arceus appears at the Hajime Nation during the Hero Episode in Pokémon Conquest.

[edit] Trading Card Game

The Arceus Cards defy one of the biggest-and oldest-mechanics of the Pokémon TCG: there is no limit to the number of Arceus Cards in a player's deck (the normal limit is four of the same individual Pokémon per deck).

Overall, there are a total of 19 different Arceus cards (3 exclusive to Japan), 5 of which are Lv. X Cards (two from Promos and three from the Arceus set). 9 of the Arceus cards are found in the Arceus theme decks.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Arceus has yet to appear in the weekly episodic portion of the Anime as of writing.

[edit] Movies

Arceus' lone appearence to date is in Arceus and the Jewel of Life as one of the main Pokémon.

[edit] Manga

Arceus' Manga info is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

It is the strongest Pokémon out of all games as it has the highest total base stats of any Pokémon in the series, safely living up to its description as the Alpha Pokémon. A member of the Uber Tier, Arceus boasts Base Stats of 120 all across the board. In addition to this, its ability, Multitype, allows it to fit into nearly any team with ease. As if these weren't enough, Arceus has a vast movepool to match, meaning it has an immense number of options and is highly unpredictable. Its signature move, Judgment, is an incredibly powerful move that takes its attack type from the type of plate that Arceus holds.
