The final Diamond and Pearl Pokémon is Arceus, the actual god of all Pokémon, the creator of them all. While Arceus's Normal type may seem underwhelming at first, a quick look at its innate ability reveals the awesome power of this god among 'mon. By collecting special plates that litter the Sinnoh region and giving them to Arceus, you can change it to any type you want, allowing it to fill any number of possible roles in your team. Of course, by tying its type to a held item, suddenly moves like Steal and Knock-off become a serious threat to Arceus. Arceus has hands down the best stats of any Pokémon, exceeding the previous bests by 20%, and a huge range of available moves. Arceus's signature attack, Judgment, deals massive damage of the type of plate held. The only question is... after capturing the god of all Pokémon, where does Gamefreak go from here?
