Arceus – Electric Type

We continue our Arceus reviews with the Lightning version. Like most Lightning Pokémon (think Raichu), this Arceus has relatively low HP (the lowest of all the Basics). It also has a nice Retreat cost of one Energy, a Fighting Weakness that shouldn’t ever really matter, and a Resistance to Metal which is . . . better than nothing, I suppose.

On the up side, this s one of the few Arceus that has a two Energy attack. For [L][C], you do 30 damage and get to switch Arceus with one of your benched Pokémon. Pretty mediocre, right?

Wrong. The damage may be puny, but being able to use an attack which switches you out is incredibly useful in an Arceus deck. For one thing, it enables you to break a lock (such as Flygon/Memory Berry), but more importantly, it allows you to switch to another Arceus so that you will be able to hit the Defending Pokémon for Weakness on your next turn. Remember that if you use the Arceus LV X with the Omniscient PokeBody, you don’t even need to have Lightning Arceus active in order to accomplish these things. Considering the way that the Arceus deck is set up, this is an incredibly useful attack.

To go with it, we also have an incredibly useful type. Having the option to Level Up this Arceus and hit for Lightning Weakness is a big deal at the moment as it puts the hurt on many of the popular decks in the metagame (Palkia G, Kingdra, Gyarados are the most obvious). That fact alone means that every Arceus deck should include this Pokémon.

Rating

Modified (Arceus deck): 3.25 (useful attack effect, great typing)
Limited: 2.5 (cheaper attack . . . but low damage output)

Guy

Hey everybody, I'm going to keep this one short and sweet! We have here the Electric Arceus. What one needs is to have this Arceus active with either the Omniscient or other lv. X Arceus leveled up on it to hit your opponents active for heavy damage if they are weak to electric. One could also have it on the bench and use the Lightning Turn attack with your active Arceus X Omniscient type and swith your Arceus while doing damage. Just remember like the old pokemon tv song used to say, "gotta catch em all, pokemon!" With Arceus the song changes to, "Gotta play em all, Arceus!"
