In this epic battle of the Magnificent Pokemon from the games of Emerald and DP/P/PT?, who would be triumphant in the extroadinary battle?

To me, Rayquaza, its a great Pokemon and the originals seem appealing to me. Rayquaza can learn strong attacks of different types. Whereas, Arceus is a multi Pokemon but its also complicated!?

Arceus's higher BSTs and type versatility make it easy for it to, say, turn into an Ice-type and Judgement the life out of Rayquaza. :P

I say Arceus for bias reasons. I just naturally think it is better than Rayquaza.

Rayquaza's inferior defenses and speed will mean Arceus will come out on top.

Arceus is superior due to its multi-type ability. It just means doom to Rayquaza.

It depends on the circumstances, but Arceus will usually win considering it's 40 BST advantage, higher defenses, HP, and speed, and the sheer versatility of it.
And judgment is 100 power, so an ice plate Arceus would just dominate Rayquaza.
Mewtwo vs. Arceus would be more tactical than Rayquaza and Arceus.

raquaza in certain circumstances, meaning:
arceus has no plate
and raquaza is trained in attack

raquaza would obviously win, but if these 2 don't apply then arceous would win 1HKO

Durr, has nobody remembered Extremespeed?

As long as Arceus isn't holding a plate, it can get STAB on it. Band it, and Rayquaza is even MORE doomed.

Otherwise, Rayquaza will at least dent Arceus with its own Extremespeed before an Ice Judgement owns it. :V

Arceus would probably win. He seems to be much better in battle than Rayquaza is plus his ability can give him a big advantage.

Depends, as long as Arceus isn't wearing the draco plate, he should be fine.

I'm also judgeing this becouse he can also learn dragon claw. Which is supereffctive.

But who say's Rayquaza can't win? He can put up a verry good fight and his outrage does heavy damage.

I like Arceus but Rayquaza looks way cooler. So I'm going to vote Rayquaza.

And Plates could give an unfair advantage.

Also natures and ev's etc could also matter.

As much as I hate Rayquaza (For stealing Arcanine's old signature move) I hate Arceus even more...*Votes for Rayquaza* I just hate the design and story behind Arceus. Although if it was an in-game battle, Arceus would win, cause Nintendo was stupid and decided to make a god Pokemon with base stats of 120 in each stat, and gave it a devastating move that always gets a STAB boost. *coughs*that's way too overpowered*coughs*

Simply because of its ability to become ice and use judgement, as well as its superior base stats, I'd say Arceus.

Arceus will come on top, as if it wasn't obvious enough. Rayquaza will always strike last because of lower speed, and can't take much of a hit. Arceus can take a hit, AND it can hit back with enormous power and defend with enormous bulk. 'quaza loses to the commonly carried Icebeam easily too.

Vote for Rayquaza, just because i don't like Arceus and all this "god of pokemon"-stuff, it's just a goat with way too high base stats.

Well, Arceus is the strongest Pokemon in existence... Kinda hard to see him losing to a mere Rayqauza.

Arceus has good stats... That's about it. It could be quite possibly the most horrendous legendary designs ever. Rayquaza atw.
