Arceus is a Normal-Type Pokémon by default; due to the Multitype ability, however, it can change into any type depending on the held elemental plate. There are 17 elemental plates that are officially used in the Pokémon Games, and each have the ability to transform Arceus into a different type. For example, If the Draco Plate (Dragon-Type Plate) is held by Arceus, it becomes a Dragon-Type Pokémon.


Judgment is the signature move of Arceus; this move varies its effect depending on the plate Arceus is holding.

Arceus is well-balanced with all its base stats at 120. At the combined Base Stat total of 720, this makes Arceus the highest stats of any non-Mega-Evolved Pokémon in the entire Pokédex.
