Reason: Does it have name and description in the Japanese version of Explorers?
While neither Arceus nor Judgment are legitimately obtainable prior to WiiWare games, the move still exists in Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky data—it has no description, and its name is $$$, however. It is a move with base power of 20, 7PP and 80% accuracy. The user targets all enemies in the room, and since Plates do not exist, it instead uses the user's primary type.
In the WiiWare games, Judgment's type depends on the version of the game played. In Keep Going! Blazing Adventure Squad, it is a Fire-type move; in Let's Go! Stormy Adventure Squad, it is a Water-type move; and in Go For It! Light Adventure Squad, it is an Electric-type move. This is due to the absence of Plates and to the fact that Arceus instead takes the type represented by each version.
The move is unobtainable and has only dummy data in Gates to Infinity as Arceus does not appear in the game.
In Super Mystery Dungeon, Judgment deals damage as if it were the same type as the user. Again due to the absence of Plates, this will almost always be Normal-type damage. However, Judgment will change to Water-type if the user's type is changed with Soak (but not if a type is added to the user due to Forest's Curse or Trick-or-Treat).
