Trivia

Origin

Given Arceus's coloring and weakness, this card depicts Arceus holding the Earth Plate. Interestingly, this makes it the only card in the Arceus subset whose TCG type (Fighting) does not directly correspond to its video game type (Ground). This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Platinum.
