New Pokemon in Legends: Arceus


Arceus - The main role in the new Nintendo game

The mysterious Pokémon Arceus will play the main role in the game of the same name. This legendary Pokémon of the Normal type has been around since the 4th generation of the game.

Arceus not only takes on the leading role of the legendary lake trio, which consists of Selfe, Vesprit and Tobutz. Arceus also rules over the legendary Dimensions trio Dialga, Palkia and Giratina.

What is particularly interesting about Arceus is that it can accept any of the 18 different types of Pokémon. Its particular type depends on the tablet or Z-crystal it is

just wears. If Arceus has neither a table nor a Z-crystal, it has the normal shape.


The legendary legend of Arceus

Arceus isn't just any mysterious Pokémon. No, according to legend, Arceus is the god and creator of the entire Pokémon world. Thus it has a divine status. In the Sinnoh region and in Johto, the legend about the creation of the world by Arceus is even part of the local mythology. At the end we would like to explain to you in more detail what the legend of Arceus says exactly:

Before there was the world of Pokémon as we know it today, there was nothing but impenetrable chaos. But suddenly an egg developed out of nowhere, from which Arceus was supposed to hatch. With its 1.000 arms, the mighty Pokémon not only formed the universe, but also the world with all its Pokémon.

After the creation of the earth, Arceus went to the Sinnoh region. There it created two eggs at the top of the crater mountain. The mighty dragon Dialga, the master of time, hatched from one of these eggs. From the other egg hatched his opponent Palkia, the master of dimension and space.

From a third egg that was created by Arceus, Giratina hatched, which embodies the antimatter and thus represents the counterpart to Palkia and Dialga. After the three mighty dragons hatched, Arceus created one last egg before it retired. From this last egg, however, not only one Pokémon hatched, but three: Selfe, Vesprit and Tobutz.

After creating the Lakes Trio and the Dimensions Trio, Arceus withdrew to the Hall of Beginning that he had built. There it fell into an everlasting sleep. According to legend, only playing the legendary azure flute Arceus can travel from this sheep.
