Oh yeah I would also like to ask. Im currently giving it chople berry but is lum berry better to protect it from status better

Status isn't a worry much. After a +2 Arceus can OHKO most things, and status should be only worried in balance teams, not Hyper offensive builds like yours.
But then it can be koed by mega lopunny and co

Definitely not M-Lopunny but Close Combat from Zacian-C is much concerning, and it pretty much 6.0s the team.
Chople Berry isn't required on Hyper Offensive teams. As such, Life Orb is much better.
Cuz after DD it can do heck lot of damage and it has some bulk

Still, Mega Rayquaza is better, but we are discussing about Arceus not your team.
I’ve used ExtremeKiller Arceus since Gen 5, and I’ve always gone with a bulky 252Atk, 252HP and 6 Speed with an adamant nature.
I also prefer Recover over Earthquake, as it allows you to set up Swords dance more often.

Indeed, but this team is incredibly slowed down by Bulky Arcues when all of your Pokemon have Max Atk Max Sp.atk and Max Speed. Recover shouldn't be chosen since this team edges towards offense, and Earthquake beats Dusk Mane which can tank +2 Shadow Claws.
Also, consider a mixed set with Ice Beam, since +2 Earthquake OHKOes Calyrex-S.
Ice Beam is the preferred fourth move due to its ability to OHKO untransformed defensive Zygarde-C without Dynamaxing. A Naughty nature is preferred in order to take priority attacks from the likes of Mega Rayquaza and opposing Arceus slightly better without compromising Arceus's offensive presence. A Naive nature may be run in order to outspeed Jolly Mega Rayquaza and at worst Speed tie with opposing Arceus.
Here's the set:
Arceus @ Life Orb
EVs: 228 Atk / 28 SpA / 252 Spe
- Swords Dance
- Extreme Speed
- Ice Beam
A side note for the team, why Naughty Nature on Dusk Mane? The teambuilder incorrectly uses Photon Geyser as always special, so use Jolly or Adamant instead of Naughty. And Psychic Fangs on Sword Dog is bad, consider Swords Dance or Substitute. And Outrage on M-Ray is bad, Xerneas pretty much 6.0s after Geomancy.
Hope this helps!
