I've noticed a couple Arceus discussions have emerged lately, and a couple things have been bugging me. I felt like making a forum about it, but I figured it'd be a bit more appropriate as a blog.
Anyway, here are my views on the whole Arceus debate.
Arceus is the creator of the universe:
No. Though this is possible, the canon specifically says, and I quote the HG/SS pokédex word for word,
"According to the legends of Sinnoh, this Pokémon emerged from an egg and shaped all there is in this world."
And as we all have learned from mythology, the greek and roman gods are all very much real, because of course.. they're legends. Legends are real! And since we know that those legends of Zeus and Poseidon are all very much real, it must also be true that the legends in Sinnoh (emphasis on how it states the legends of Sinnoh) are true! Right? Therefore, Arceus must have created all there is in the world.
Nothing can top Arceus:
Though I'll agree, I don't want anything to top Arceus in terms of base stat total, that doesn't mean something has to top it. They went two entire generations without topping Mewtwo. I saw mentioned that maybe they could have a counterpart to Arceus, perhaps an opposite. That could be interesting. Considering Arceus' multitype ability, I'm not sure how that could be done, but it certainly could be interesting (perhaps the first ???-type Pokémon?). Being believed by (potentially ancient) Sinnoh myth to be the creator of the Pokémon world, perhaps the new region in Black and White could have their own god mythology, with an equal base stat total of 720. Though personally I'm hoping they won't do that, at least for a while, and keep the toughest legendary at 680, assuming the mechanics aren't significantly changed (which I doubt).
