    That's rather odd if I do say so myself but that's the first time I've heard of Bug Arceus being used so widely nowadays TBH. Arceus could use the BoltBeam combination if using the CM Judgment set too though which can put a dent on Gengar and Ho-Oh as well, especially if it's obtained a few CM boosts beforehand. For the Swords Dance Bug set I'd probably go with Stone Edge for coverage against said counters, shaky accuracy but better than nothing if you ask me.

    Bug-type Arceus. Never used that one before. I've only used Dark, Dragon & Steel and I found that Steel type is the most frustrating among the other trainers.

    Which typing do you prefer on Arceus and why?
    Actually that sounds like a pretty good idea there haha, I'll have to try that sometime. Only used the Ghost type myself though TBH, yes I know I'm a noob lol.

    I've always liked the Water type Arceus above most of the other typings TBH, pairs so well with Kyogre it's just sickening lol.
