I'm trying to get infinite Arceuses in Pokemon Pearl. But I'm afraid of ruining my game or it not working.

No matter when you do it, it will stil; have a chance to ruin your game
It counts as a hack.
This is fine; glitches aren't hacks. Please don't backseat mod.

Depending on how far into the game you are, this might not help at all, but it is best to perform void glitches as soon as you have access to the bike (you also will need escape ropes because you won’t be able to use fly). It usually takes less than an hour to get from the start of the game to this point. You want to be as close to the start of the game as possible so you don’t lose hours of gameplay if something goes wrong. If you do it this way, keep in mind that level 60 legendaries could be a pain to catch with weak Pokémon. This doesn’t actually lower the chances of the glitch going wrong, like the comment above says, but it’ll greatly reduce the consequences.

Okay, thank you. Any tips for catching the legendaries though? (Really late reply, sorry.)
I can’t remember if you’re able to save in the void glitch or not, but if you are, definitely save the game right before you enter the battle. Have a lot of poke balls in your bag and just try to get as many turns out of your pokemon as you can. If you have one, starting out with a quick ball would be great, then it you make if to 20 ish turns, timer balls will work well too. Inflicting it with sleep or paralysis would also be a huge help, but I’m not sure how easy it is to obtain those moves this early. It’s been a while since I’ve played the game, so someone help if you disagree with any of this.
I’m not sure it you’re aware of this, but in case it does go wrong, you can always delete the save file and start over (assuming it didn’t become corrupted).
