Alright, I've decided to bring it in here first before I bring it into PR (or MA pending on if we're removing PR any day from now). So we all know that Arceus is up for a Platinum revamp. No Maniac, I'm not picking on you. The point I'm bringin up today is a very simple question that could have mixed answers: Should we split the Arceus analysis up? By this I mean splitting each Arceus "form" with the Plates as different analysis. And, of course, the Normal-type Arceus. For arguments sake, I will present why and possibly why not to agree with this. The reason to agree with this is because with the Plates, Arceus is technically like "another form". They play completely different with a different plate. In other words, the Ice Plate Arceus is in almost no way playing similair to the Poison Plate Arceus. It is also because of the "possible" size of the analysis. Right now since its been recently (and it hasn't) updated, Arceus has a total of... 9 sets. Possibly more sets with the inclusion of Platinum move tutors. For the reasons why not to possibly do this. Nintendo has not actually said anything about Arceus having different forms. Granted, Nintendo hasn't even released anything of Arceus' existance, so this point could be rather moot. I'm sorry if I sound unclear or even silly about asking this, but the main question has been addressed. I personally feel that the plates give Arceus the reason of being different Pokemon despite having the same stats and movepool (well the ability too). If it seems rather pointless to ask this and such, feel free to close or delete this.
