PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Basically, I'm asking about Pokemon that change type with held items. Genesect can appear as Douse, and Zoroark appears as Genesect Burn. Does this happen with Pokemon like Arceus and Silvally? Example: if an Arceus is holding the plate that makes it a Dark type, can Zoroark appear as a Grass type Arceus?

I had Arceus-Bug and whenever I sent Zoroark out, it was still Arceus-Bug in the replay. I also did this a second time, still Arceus-Bug. So, the answer is it probably has a small chance of occurring, or you just mixed up Douse and Burn.

Hope this helps!

I highly doubt it was a coincidence that Zoroark disguised as both Electric Arceus and Fighting Silvally.

Hope this helps! :)

You helped too. Thanks.
