Beating Arceus

Question

I'm trying to beat ditto Arceus at the moment. I can't seem to beat it. I looked at forums but they say it was easy to beat with a lucario, magnezone, or a gengar. However you can't get that until later in the game. What should I do?

Honestly I don't remembar needing a strategy to beat it, but if you have ANY kinda problem with a single pokemon then you just need to either badly poison it (toxic) or to paralyze it. BTW, I don't want to be an a**hole but you should probably try to balance your team (unless you're doing a challenge or smtn). If you can't beat Arceus you're going to have a hard time in future fights.

Your levels should be close enough to outspeed a paralyzed Arceus, so that would be the way with the least effort.

Probably the easiest methods are to use the Prankster Murkrow with Perish Song, or three Sturdy mons with Bulldoze/magnitude/earthquake and collapse the field.

Try a quick claw destiny bond Carvanha, soft reset until the claw pops.

I also thought about it, but Arceus is normal type.

I think destiny bond works regardless of the type, but I am not sure of that.

- Destiny Bond + Quick Claw

- Perish Song + Prankster

- 3x Bulldoze/Earthquake/Magnitude + Sturdy

- Paralysis -> throw bodies at it until it dies

- PP stall with Ghost (lures Shadow Ball) + Normal (lures Focus Blast + Judgement)

- Toxic

- Strong, fast/specially bulky EV trained attackers e.g. Noivern (Boomburst, Super Fang), A-Raichu (Psychic), Ampharos (Power Gem), Medicham (High Jump Kick, this should OHKO cleanly if you land it)

 

These are all the ways I've either seen done or done myself, though there may be more. Tanking strats aren't really a thing because Judgement is field boosted super hard and it has perfect neutral coverage, but overpowering it is entirely possible with a well raised set of attackers near the level cap, and outsmarting it is doable in a number of ways.

I took a different approach. Cincinno with the ability skill link, sing it to sleep and spam rock blast or tail slap. Tail slap gets the STAB boost as well as another boost if it's holding the silk scarf. Rock blast does extra damage thanks to the field.

 

Cincinno is one of those mons that not a lot of people use because they think it's useless but it's actually surprisingly versatile.
