Arceus

The official Pokémon site has officially revealed Arceus, the Alpha Pokémon. Although fans have known about Arceus since the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, it was not revealed to the Japanese public until Feb. 14.

The site mentions basic information about Arceus, such as its height and weight. Its ability remains hidden, though. The site also briefly mentions Arceus having an appearance in the 12th movie and a future trading card game expansion.

The other event-only Pokémon for the Generation IV games Diamond, Pearl and Platinum were previously announced after appearing in several ways on the official Web site. Manaphy's egg, along with Darkrai's and Shaymin's shadows, respectively made intermittent appearances on the site before their official revelation. Arceus is the first among these Pokémon to be announced without being teased with this method.

Arceus is the 493rd Pokémon in the National Pokédex. It has been distributed to players of the Japanese versions of Diamond, Pearl and Platinum since July 18, when the 12th movie premiered. The Japanese distribution ends Sept. 30.

The Azure Flute, the key item that grants access to Arceus' Hall of Origin, has yet to be officially distributed.
