Considering all the different forms enabled by plates & Z-Moves, How many types is Arceus the strongest Pokémon for?
>>
>>38571390
In an ideal world, all of them. In reality i dont know
>>
Very few of them, I'd say.
It's definitely the strongest Normal type.
Maybe Bug type, its only competition is Genesect and Pheromosa.
Everything else seems taken by another legendary.
>>
Strongest how? By bts? What is it facing?
>>
>>38571423
Ice type? Poison? Rock? Grass? Really no competition there.
>>
>>38571434
Mewtwo, and all of it's Mega Evolutions.
>>
>>38571504
>Ice type
Kyurem White
>Poison
Mega Gengar
>Rock
Got me there
>Grass
Possibly. But I'd argue Ferrothorn is better.

>>38571563
Extreme Killer is still stronger than Mega Kangaskhan.
>>
>>38571390
Probably not many. Rock and Normal are the only ones that immediately come to mind. Probably Bug too because Bugs fucking suck.
>>
>>38571557
>Kyurem White
Ehh... Arceus can still fill alot more roles and is probably more generally useful. Mega Gengar is stupidly good at what it does and I can't argue with you there. But it's also not a legendary. (Though there also is no Poison legendary if you don't count ultra beasts...)
>>
>>38571585
If this was true then the meta would revolve around Arceus and it most certainly does not. Nice thought though, it would make sense. Hopefully Sinnoh remakes fix this bit everyone will hate it more than Landorus at that point
>>

>Arceus can still fill alot more roles and is probably more generally useful.
Compared to most other Legendary, Arceus as a whole is kind of a jack-of-all-trades. You get some notable types, like Normal Arceus spamming Extreme Speed, but generally each Arceus kind of struggles to stand out.
Poison Arceus doesn't really do anything. It's only notable in that there aren't any poison legendaries.
But Mega Gengar, Naganadel and even Toxapex are better than it.
>>
>>38571584
>>38571504
What about Mega Diancie? Though I think times 4 is not good
>>
>>38571557
Venusaur's Mega is probably a better Grass type in all fairness. Ferrothorn is good too though. They're both probably tied for best grass in the game imo, which a pretty significant accomplishment if we're being real here.

Dragon, Flying, Fire, and Ground are immediately out of the question thanks to megafug and groudon. The other types, just look if a pokemon of that same type is ranked higher.
>>
>>38572787
Kartana if you take into account doubles.
>>
>>38572864
>groudon
Zygarde is a better ground type
>>
>>38572936
They're talking about primal groudon retard

Tyranitar and Mega Diancie are actually more viable than Arceus-Rock in Ubers
>>
>>38571390
Alright that's it, we're fixing God
Origin Arceus
HP 120
ATK, DEF, SPA, SPD, SPE 140
Ability: Will of God (Multitype + repressing all effects of mega stones and z-crystals)
Judgement
Cosmic Power
Recover
Extreme Speed

Imagine unironically thinking EKiller is not as good as Mega Kang, it wasn't even comparable to it before its nerf LMAO
>>
Arceus-Ground is like the third best Ground-type, Arceus-Fairy is like the second best Fairy-type, Arceus-Normal is the best Normal-type, Arceus-Water is the second best Water-type, Arceus-Grass is the best Grass-type (Debatably with Ferrothorn on the Ubers metagame, but allowed in OU it would wreck everything), Arceus-Rock is the best Rock-type, Arceus-Ice and Kyurem White is debatable, Kyurem W can get to do more work though Arceus is way more versatile
>>
It might not be the best of some types but it is most definitely the most versatile pokemon for almost all types. What even beats it out in versatility, Mew and Smeargle?
>>
>>38571390
For monotypes, Darkrai is probably a more powerful dark overall, although their roles aren't even remotely comparable. Same for one or both of Mega Mewtwo Y and Deoxys-Attack for Psychic, and Kyogre for Water.

Xerneas on the other hand actually runs sets with pretty similar roles to Fairyceus, and so its a bit of a tossup, but Geomancy probably puts it above Arceus.

Arceus is at least the best monotype for probably every other type. Ground might be debatable, but non-primal groudon is kinda terrible.

Woah there dipshit. Don’t go too fast now

Pretending to be retarded stopped being funny in 2013

>>38571390
Probably
Normal
Bug
Rock
Grass
Dark
Arguably Electric

Besides that, Types that Arceus is second best in
Poison (Mega Gengar)
Fairy (Xerneas, fringe argument that Arceus is actually a better Fairy than Xern, Xern is just a gimmickmon with Geomancy.)
Fighting (It's kinda debatable if Marshadow is outright better than Arceus Fighting, this one is contested)
Ice (Kyurem-White)
Arguably Electric.

These aren't to say there's nothing in those types with a niche Arceus doesn't, but just overall, broad strokes.
An important thing to consider, Arceus's stats in relation to everything else mean it is a very fast, very bulky pokemon with okay offence. This means that even though Kyurem-White is only kinda meh, Arceus is a terrible match for Ice.

Makes sense.

Just wait until the 1,000 armed form in DP remakes with the highest base stats in the series.
