I don't hate the stats. I hate the Pokemon.

It looks ugly, and the english voice is stupid. As everyone knows, the Japanese is once again better. The multytype ability is annoying and stupid. With him not knowing every single bloody move on the planet, there is absolutely no use.

The problem isn't Arceus. The problem is that they make too many legendaries per game.

First generation had the 3 birds, Mewtwo and Mew. I think that was a good amount: 5.

Second generation had the 3 beasts, the 2 game mascots and Celebi. 6 legendaries wasn't too high. Acceptable.

Then the inflation began in the third generation: the 3 golems, the 3 game mascots, Jirachi, Deoxys and the Latis. Were the Latis really necessary and then there was Deoxys out of nowhere. I only found out about Deoxys through a friend a year after Ruby/Sapphire came out. Yeah it was a cool Pokemon but still... 10 legendary Pokemon.

The fourth generation made things worse: The 3 lake guardians, the 3 game mascots, Cresselia, Darkrai, Manaphy, Phione, Heatran, Regigigas, Shaymin, and Arceus. 14 in all... They just went too far. Did we really need all those legendaries. What was the point of Regigas and Heatran? Too many.

I have yet to finish my White Version as I have only just acquired my second badge. I don't know how many legendaries there are in this generation other than the 2 game mascots. Yea I could check online to find out how many there are but I'd rather play and find out for myself.

Personally, I don't count the legends that don't occur naturally in the game PART of the game...

I think Arceus is cool.. I'd really like to get one. In order to do so, someone has to trade me an event/cloned/hacked one. I can't get one by simply playing the game.. So in that regard, yes it is lame.

Same goes for Darkrai, Shaymin, Deoxys, etc...

I think it was a pretty cool idea, and we got to learn what the "god" of Pokemon was, so I don't really hate it. It has a pretty nice design, too.

I wouldn't say hate but i'd use dislike instead, it is kind of ridiculous having an Arceus on your team but some people just like to battle that way. I would suggest you let your friends know about battling tiers and tell them it is nooby having a legendary Pokémon on your team.

What's to not like about this Pokemon? The only deliver about you loathe him is using the reason that he is as well strong...

I think he is Awesome. I really such as the actuality he could be almost something you want, however I nevertheless think I'd choose any common version. Extremespeed AND Judgment with STAB... ouch!

I dont hate it, I acrtually rather like Arceus, for show anyhow. I am not much on using him in battles, at least agaisnt people over WiFi or against friends. As for having a legendaryin my team I usually have one, though it's usually giratina or one of the second gen ones like Ho-Oh or Suicune.

As for as i am concerned Arceus is jsut there to sit pretty and look good for me. that and when i sue him against othes on Wifi or friends i feel cheap.

I dislike Arceus rather than hating him.
he just seems too, over exaggerated. Everyone thinks he's the greatest Pokemon ever due to him being viewed as the God. That's the only reason i dislike him. Plus he seems too, err, gaudy in a way. i had always envisioned a Pokemon "god" as more of a spiritual being, or ghost in a way.

His whole type changing mechanics are pretty cool though, too.
Call me maybe
