Judgment is a Normal Type move introduced in Generation IV, and is the signature move of the legendary Pokémon Arceus. Judgment does not make contact, therefore the user does not activate abilities such as Static. If the user has a Plate, Judgment's Type changes depending on it.

Misconceptions

Arceus always receives STAB using this move, no matter which plate is being held.

Other Info

Even though Arceus is the only Pokémon that can learn Judgment naturally, it can also be learned by Smeargle via Sketch or used by Mimic or Mirror Move, the type will then be Normal (Unless the user is holding a plate).

In the Anime

Judgment has only been used by Arceus in Pokémon Movie 12: To the Conquering of Space-Time. The user makes a orange-pink ball of light appear above their head, before unleashing it into a shower of laser-bright beams.
