Arceus: Physical or Special?

0 votes

I just caught Arceus in my Platinum game, and I was thinking what move to teach it. It's got 120 attack, and 120 Sp.Attack, so I have no idea what moves to teach it.
I already have 2 physical attackers on my team, and they are Gallade and Mamoswine
I also have 2 special attackers on my team, they are Dusknoir and Rotom, wash form
I have Leafeon, who is mixed special and physical
Help please!
And a moveset would be nice too

Why not a Physical Attack? I mean, it can't hurt your team.

Arceus-Ghost

Arceus @ Spooky Plate
Trait: Multitype
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spe/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Brick Break
  • Shadow Force
  • Swords Dance
  • Recover

Or you can go with a Special Arceus

Arceus-Ground

Arceus @ Earth Plate
Trait: Multitype
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 252 Spe/ 4 HP
Timid Nature (+Spd,-Atk)

  • Judgement
  • Thunderbolt
  • Ice Beam
  • Psyshock

It seriously doesn't matter, neither will hurt your team.

He said Platinum. Psyshock does not exist yet. Plus, this is in-game, don't treat it like it is PO.
OOooh, he said Platinum? O.O Was sure he said White >.> Sorry then :P
Trachy's right. Arceus doesn't learn Shadow Force. You're going to need to change that, too.
It actually does learn Shadow Force through Event.
I knew i saw it somewhere... Thanks PB :D
