'''Arceus''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''アルセウス''' ''Arceus'') is a {{type|Normal}} Pokémon known as the Alpha Pokémon. According to mythology, Arceus emerged from an egg before the universe even existed, then shaped the world with its 1,000 arms.
Arceus is known as "The Original One", as it is said to have created the regions of [[Sinnoh]] and [[Ransei]], and may have created the entire [[Pokémon universe]]. According to legend, Arceus also created two [[legendary trio|Legendary trios]]. First, it created the [[creation trio]]: Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, to balance time, space, and antimatter. Then, it created the [[lake guardians]]: [[Uxie]], [[Mesprit]], and [[Azelf]], and created spirit. As their creator, it is both trios' [[trio master]]. It is unique in this regard, as it is the only Mythical Pokémon to be the master of a Legendary trio, and the only Pokémon to be the master of two.
Arceus is often referenced in [[Sinnoh myths|Sinnoh's mythology]] as the "Original One". Both [[Canalave City|Canalave City's]] [[Canalave Library|library]] and the [[Plate|plates]] scattered across Sinnoh describe Arceus' creation of the universe. This makes Arceus somewhat notable, as it receives more exposure in-game than Mythical Pokémon traditionally find.
Arceus' [[signature ability]], [[Multitype (ability)|Multitype]], allows it to [[list of Pokémon with form differences#Arceus|change its form]] and [[type]] depending on which plate it [[held item|holds]]. This will also change the type of its [[signature move]], [[Judgment (move)|Judgment]].
Arceus was officially revealed on February 14, 2009, and first made available to players on July 18 of that year, the day when [[M12|''Arceus and the Jewel of Life'']] premiered in Japan. Arceus was revealed to international audiences on August 3, 2009.
