Hey /vp/ I'm a college freshman and I'm doing a school presentation on religion for a humanities class. I want to cite one example of arceus as an example. Problem is I didn't play D/P/Pt. Give me all your arceus lore

Just use Google or bulbapedo.

this is what I'm using

Here's the bible:
There's Arceus origin, the world origin and others interesting facts there.
>>
>>24616153
Emulate it.
>>
>>24616143
There's a generic church in Hearthome City, I don't think they say anything particular or interesting there, just generic stuff. Some stuff about Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Uxie, Azelf and Mesprit occassionally gets mentioned by NPCs and is part of the plot, all of this is probably inspired by Shintoism. Arceus is inspired by various religion (it learns the move "Judment" at level 100, read its Pokédex entries to find the rest). Then there's the HGSS event and the Pokédex entries. If you have Arceus in Platinum there's an NPC that you can find at various locations multiple times that tells you something interesting each time you meet him. You might want to check it out.
There might be some stuff in the anime/movies, but I haven't seen them.
>>
>>24616339
Oh, there's also some nice stuff with the names of the places related to Arceus.
In Japanese, the place where the HGSS event happens is called Shinto Ruins (from Shintoism)
You might also find something interesting in Mount Coronet and Spear Pillar too.
From Bulbapedia:
>The name "spear pillar" is a reference to the creation myth in Shinto, where the deities Izanagi and Izanami were given the spear 天沼矛 Ame-no-nuboko, with which they created 淤能碁呂島 Onogoroshima, upon which they built the pillar 天御柱 Ame-no-mihashira.

I guess that if you read about Shintoism you could find more stuff like this. There could be interesting stuff about the lakes, Uxie, Azelf, Mesprit, Dialga, Palkia and Giratina. But I don't know for sure, I'm just giving you some suggestion in case you want to research it. It would be nice if you would post here what you find, if you do.
>>
It doesn't even show up in any of the games proper outside events.

You're better off using a video game that actually focuses on religion, like Okami.
>>
>>24617605
You're right that it doesn't have that much and other videogames would be better (I think Zelda might kind of work, probably not as much as Okami though), but Arceus isn't the only Pokémon based on that kind of things, as I said in my two previous posts.
>>
Mention how his event was deemed to difficult for Americans and thus canned.
>>
>>24616094
>I want to cite one example of arceus as an example.

This is a terrible idea.

Here's your greenpill dude.

Arceus, and the Creation Trio are based off the Gnostic mythos.
Demiurge, the damned leader of the vile Archons which trapped us inside of this fake physical realms, he created to help him finish the task.

>>24619594
>calling Arceus "demiurge"
Nice meme.

OP here. Giving a 10 minute presentation on protetsant Christianity for final, I have to have 4-6 slides of different references to religion in pop culture/fine arts.

Arceus in House is only one (1) of my examples

Gonna compare the creation of dialga and palkia who create all matter with Genesis. Will use all this information, will report back in 3 weeks
