Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.


I think Arceus is the best Pokemon because Arceus has the ability Multitype, which is an ability exclusive only to this Pokémon. Multitype allows Arceus to change its type based on whichever plate it is currently holding, E.G. holding the Flame Plate makes it the Fire-Type. Likewise, a Splash Plate will make it a Water-Type. Generation VI introduced Fairy type, so Arceus can be a Fairy Type upon having Pixie Plate.

According to the Pokédex, Arceus in mythology is said to have shaped the Universe with its "1,000 " arms, though, due to Arceus not actually having any arms, it can safely be assumed that the "1,000 arms" are metaphorical. The "1,000" arms could be Arceus's move "Judgement" but this is still unknown. It has also been stated that Arceus created the Legendary Titans (otherwise known as the Dragon Trio) Dialga, Palkia, and surprisingly Giratina, as well as the Lake Guardian Trio (also known as the Lake Spirits) Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf. Arceus can also easily hold off ...more

Arceus is a white equine resembling a qilin or centaur with a gray, vertically-striated underside. The striated pattern has similar recurrences on the underside of its mane, tail, and face. Its four pointed feet are tipped with gold hooves. Its long mane juts away from its head, and its face is gray, with green eyes and red pupils, and a green circular pattern below its eyes. Arceus also has a streak of gold coloration on its head, and ears that point upward. Its neck is fairly long, with two pairs of extrusions to the sides, and a flap-like feature on the neck's underside that is colored white like much of the body. It also has a golden cross-like wheel attached to its body by its round abdomen, which changes color along with its eyes and hooves based on Arceus's current type, which depends on the plate that it wields. The wheel also has four Jewels attached to it. The pattern of striated gray of Arceus's underbelly resumes past Arceus's waist. Its limbs have gray undersides and ...more

First off, I just wanna say that half of you people don't know what you're talking about, saying that things like Charizard are the most powerful Pokémon because of your overwhelming nostalgia and/or stupidity. Arceus, simply put, CREATED THE UNIVERSE. That automatically makes him the most powerful, unless Mewtwo created its own galaxy yesterday and I didn't hear about it. In addition, shouldn't the beings that control TIME, SPACE and MATTER be occupying the second, third, and fourth spot? (For those of you who don't know, its Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, Arceus's trio. )

The actual top ten of the most powerful Pokemon according to the base stats is Arceus (720), Mewtwo (680), Lugia (680), Ho-oh (680), Rayquaza (680), Dialga (680), Palkia (680), Giratina (680), Slaking (670), Kyogre (670), Groudon (670), Regigigas (670). I know I listed more than ten, but that is because multiple are tied. - Zorgoth

It created the entire universe. None of these other Pokemon would have even been created if it weren't for its work. Perfect stats, all across the board, the best moves and can be any type. Don't let your nostalgia could your judgement, arceus is far better than Mewtwo. And even if arceus was overrated, which it is not, that doesn't stop it from being the worlds most perfect Pokemon.


Do you know how Arceus wins against Mewtwo? With a Focus Sash. That is the ONLY WAY Arceus can actually take a hit. With Mewtwo beating Arceus by 15 base speed, and the new megas, Mewtwo wins hands down, EXCEPT with Focus Sash

Now, if we are going by how Arceus appears in the game -or by its stats- then perhaps it doesn't deserve its spot at the top. However, if we think of it in its lore and anime version then it makes sense for the Alpha Pokemon to be at the top. According to legend, Arceus created Sinnoh and perhaps even the whole Pokemon world which, may not necessarily make it God but at least creator of the Pokemon World. In the anime, it has been shown that Arceus - at full power - can't be hurt by anything. In fact, Arceus caused Space-Time Waves by simply waking up from its slumber. In-game, it isn't quite as powerful but still has many move set options and can be any type you want, provided you have the necessary plate. I also love Arceus' design! (Of course this is simply a matter of opinion so don't take this as an official fact.). Arceus is one of my favourite Pokemon.

Y'know what? There's a lot of people opinion's about if mewtwo and arceus goes on a duel, mewtwo would won, and they say that mewtwo is a lot stronger than arceus. Ok, lemme tell you something, arceus is a god, but never mind that, mewtwo may have the strongest SP attack, and his Psychic really does kicks ass. But arceus can change type, AND he has a move called Perish song, and you guys know what will happen if arceus and mewtwo goes 1 on 1

it can change types which is very useful for battle, it once saved earth from a meteor by ramming into it, it is known as the creators of all pokemons and the creator of the world, it is believed that is born before the universe, when its angry, it takes the combined powers of palkia, dialga and darkrai to stop it, it is also believed that this pokemon shaped the universe with his 1000 arms which is so cool!

With the ability to change types and has the stat base of 720 blows every Pokemon out of the water. Especially when you're the only Pokemon with the ability to learn the move judgment. Judgement eliminates anything in its way hands down.

Arceus is the best Pokemon. Its base statistics surpasses that of all other Pokemon. Even that of the legendary Pokemon victini. It is said to have created giratina, palkia and dialga, and has the power to hold off these three highly powerful Pokemon all at once. So it is undoubtedly the strongest Pokemon

Arceus is the strongest in my opinion because it is a GOD Pokemon. As we all know GOD is Omnipotent. Since GOD is omnipotent that makes arceus omnipotent. Therefore since arceus omnipotent cause he is a GOD no Pokemon can beat him, no attack can hurt him, he is the beginning and the end, he is the alpha and the omega. He is in control if the universe. He has sovereignty over every single being Pokemon and human and that includes Mewtwo. If arceus wanted he could just erase metwo from existance, Mewtwo can hurt arceus for the sole reason that he is Omnipotent. You can't make god bleed, you can only watch, wait and pray that his judgement is in your favor

That is true, he did create every Pokemon, but he may not have created Dialga, Palkia, Lugia, Ho-oh, Rayquaza (all the legendary Pokemon). But, I don't think that he created Mew or Mewtwo. (Because the whole story about the evil scientist and stuff. ) But of course, he is the more powerful than a Pokemon than one created by a scientist.

Arceus is the strongest no one can defeat it not even single Pokemon can good luck arceus keep going like this defeat all pokemons in the world I know you can do it keep it up I will support you every day I know you are the best

Arceus the god pokemon with his signature move Judgment. Excluding megas, he has the highest stat total. When the creation trio were fighting Arceus (in the movie Pokemon: Arceus and the Jewel of life), they can't lay a finger on him! Even with Dialga in the battle, the tables won't turn! He also destroyed a giant meteoroid (he got hurt just because he crashed into it but he could've used dragon pulse and Judgment in fighting type)! He is the strongest pokemon ever! The only thing that sucks was his voice acting; Mewtwo's voice actor in the first movie was way better.

All of you, stop saying that others are the best. Arceus is like the Jesus of all Poke'mon he could easily obliterate a Mewtwo. Mewtwo is Chuck Norris and Arceus is Jesus. Just straight actual facts. But if you play the video games, Arceus isn't as Epic as he's supposed to be because if they made it realistically it would be too Over Powered and would beat everything.

Arceus is strongest because mine took out a level 100 Mewtwo when it was only 55. It can learn any move its holding a plate. It can learn things like judgement and hyper beam and extreme speed and giga impact and perish song.

Is anyone crazy here! Arceus is the best Pokemon that ever lived-more like the only Pokemon that was alive before every other one was created by HIM (yes I know, besides mewtwo). I bet he could beat mewtwo and mew, not that they're bad, they're actually very good, I'm just saying that Arceus is better. It can change its form into I don't know, more than a thousand forms. You should search him up online and then go to images, they're really good. I have one as my home screen background on my iPad.

A legendary God Pokemon that can endure any attack and can use the legendary attack 'Judgement'. It is the only known Pokemon that is able to use the attack mentioned before. Again it is that Pokemon that created 'The Jewel of Life' that fertilized a whole country or town. It is the creator of the universe.

Arceus can be whatever it needs to be! You just need a simple plate and knowledge about what type is good for what and you can easily win any battle. Also, its one move Judgement always knocks out the Pokemon, when I battle.

I think you are all stupid. Mewtwo and Arceus is the one and only best pokemon that ever lives. Arceus can learn all moves and so can mewtwo. Arceus was the creator of the universe in pokemon. Mewtwo is built to be on of the strongest but it meet its match from Arceus.

Definitely arceus because in the movie arceus and the Jewel of life it shows that arceus has life plates and can use the plates to protect itself in battle also he can change forms which makes it better for type disadvantage.

Obviously the most powerful, coolest, sought after, and epic pokemon in history. Considering it has the overall best stats of any other pokemon makes it a no brainer on this list. Oh, and it's also the creator of all pokemon. Who can top that? Definitely #1

Arceus - god's Dog, the defeater of the 3 strongest legendary Pokemon (except Mewtwo) Palkia, Dialga, and Giratina, this Pokémon was born before the universe even existed and Arceus shaped the world. If there's now Arceus there no Charizard, no Mewtwo, no Dialga, no Magikarp, no Groudon, no Arcanine, no Rayquaza, no Celebi, no Articuno BUT if Satoshi Tajiri did not made Pokemon there will be no Arceus but well where talking about Pokemon here so ill go Arcues the Alpha Pokemon

Seriously the god is the strongest I know he created everything but you don't know about me is that just because he is the god doesn't mean he is the most powerful one 2 things that can hurt arceus or maybe kill 1 Jewel of life take it away bang! Weak to dragon and electric types and others type I don't know all of them get other Pokemon that he is weak to and bam hurt or kill 2 is that meteor thing in the movie and I have a question if he is the god of Pokemon why did he created something that will hurt him in the movie doesn't make any sense

Arceus created all the Pokemon in the universe, and has infinite power. If someone challenged him, he can just delete them from all existence because he created them. Arceus rocks, and if you can get him in ORAS I totally will. I already have my team planned out: Sceptile, Rayquaza, Groudon, Milotic, Latias/Latios, and Froslass. Hopefully we can get Arceus, too. Point is, ARCEUS ROCKS!
