[SET COMMENTS]
  • Dragon Dance allows Arceus to outspeed opposing Arceus formes as well as turn the tables on faster Normal-resistant or immune Pokemon such as Zacian-C, Flutter Mane, Arceus-Ghost, and Tera Ghost Pokemon.
  • Extreme Speed is a powerful priority move that lets Arceus revenge kill opposing sweepers as well as clean weakened teams late-game.
  • Shadow Claw OHKOes Flutter Mane and hits Giratina-O, Skeledirge, and foes that have Terrastalized into the Ghost-type hard, especially if Arceus has Terastallized into the Ghost-type itself.
  • Flare Blitz is a powerful coverage move that OHKOes Zacian-C at +1 and deals heavy damage to Corviknight and Tera Steel Giratina-O. Earthquake has no recoil and also has a good chance to OHKO Zacian-C at +1 after Stealth Rock, but it cannot hit Corviknight. Recover keeps Arceus healthy throughout a match and potentially lets it set up more than once.
  • Silk Scarf is recommended to boost the power of Extreme Speed to secure benchmarks such as OHKOing offensive Kyogre at +1 with Tera Normal. Leftovers is another good option, especially alongside Recover, to let Arceus accrue multiple boosts. Lum Berry is useful for giving Arceus additional insurance against status moves such as Will-O-Wisp from Giratina-O or Skeledirge.
  • The given EV spread maximizes Arceus's damage output while giving it enough Speed to outrun max Speed base 90 Pokemon, as well as uninvested Koraidon and Miraidon.
  • Tera Normal with a Silk Scarf gives Extreme Speed the extra power needed to OHKO Miraidon and offensive Kyogre at +1 after Stealth Rock. However, Tera Ghost is also an option to boost the power of Shadow Claw and avoid being revenge killed by Koraidon and Zacian-C. Finally, Tera Fire makes Arceus immune to Will-O-Wisp.
  • Arceus fits best on hyper offense and bulky offense, where it keeps opposing sweepers in check with its powerful priority while threatening to sweep itself.

QC ready but just a few questions:

I presume the EV spread is the outspeed max base speed 90s but if there is something else I missed please enlighten me
The sample set on the dex doesn't have Earthquake but imo it is very useful on DD Arceus to KO Zacian-C (and non-scarf Miraidon). Otherwise I feel you should just run the standard SD instead if you're not going to turn the tables on Zacian at least. With Calyrex-S banned a big reason to use DD Arceus is gone so I feel like EQ should be included to hit Zacian but let me know what you think.

  • Dragon Dance is an alternative setup move that allows Arceus to outspeed opposing Arceus formes, as well as turn the tables on faster Normal-resistant Pokemon such as Zacian-C, Flutter Mane, Arceus-Ghost, and Tera Ghost Pokemon. (cross-referencing sets isn't allowed)
  • Extreme Speed is a powerful priority move that lets Arceus revenge kill opposing sweepers as well as clean weakened teams late-game.
  • Shadow Claw OHKOes Flutter Mane and hits Giratina-O, Skeledirge, and Arceus-Ghost foes who have terrastalized into the Ghost-type hard, especially if Arceus has Terastallized into the Ghost-type. (not sure about the wording but Ghostceus isn't very good imho)
  • Recover keeps Arceus healthy throughout a match and potentially lets it set up more than once. However, Earthquake has a good chance to OHKO Zacian-C at +1 after Stealth Rock.
  • Silk Scarf is recommended to boost the power of Extreme Speed to secure benchmarks such as OHKOing offensive Kyogre at +1 with Tera Normal. Leftovers is another good option, especially alongside Recover, to let Arceus accrue multiple boosts.

content is good, no Earthquake was because we were rushing to get things on dex. I agree with its inclusion.

Once QC 1 is applied, I would prefer to see a set with Flare Blitz / Earthquake / Recover in slot 4 instead, as Flare Blitz hits Zacian-C / Corviknight / Tera Steel Giratina-O.

QC 2/2

Lasen edit: I forgot Flare Blitz was an option I approve this message.
