Pokédex entry
It is said to have emerged from an egg in a place where there was nothing, then shaped the world.
なにも ない ばしょに あった タマゴのなかから すがたを あらわし せかいを うみだしたと されている。



Given Arceus's coloring and weakness, this card depicts Arceus holding the Earth Plate. Interestingly, this makes it the only card in the Arceus subset whose TCG type (Fighting) does not directly correspond to its video game type (Ground). This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Platinum.
