I just saw the Arceus cutscene in HG/SS (I'm not posting the link in case doing that would force me to see this scene for my entire life with no escape) and boy, is it one of the craziest things in any Pokémon game ever. Google "arceus cutscene hgss" and you'll see exactly what happens when you bring the legendary hulahooping space Brachiosaurus (that's what it looks like to me) to the Ruins of Alph to get a member of the Relativity Trio (Dialga/Palkia/Giratina) at the Sinjoh Ruins. When you stand on one of the circles on the triangular platform in the ruins, something that I can't even comprehend happens, so I'll have TVTropes do it for me. According to TVTropes, what Arceus does in this scene is to start out "with Unown flying around the area and Arceus glowing. Then a closeup of its face covers the screen before fading away, and its battle music from the Sinnoh games begins blaring as a montage of images of real life
begin flashing across the screen all the while Arceus' overworld sprite and a strange pattern of lines overlap them. Some of these real-life images are: space, a forest, a rainbow, an erupting volcano, a lightning storm, skyscrapers, train tracks, a highway intersection, blood cells, a solar eclipse, and finally the Earth itself. Never before has such a thing as this occurred in any medium of Pokémon
. Word of God
says that in this sequence, Arceus is recreating the universe from scratch
to create that Dialga/Palkia/Giratina for you." I believe that, of all the quotes in the world, from those of plumbers to those of poets and from those of shopkeepers to those of scientists, the best quote to describe this scene was spoken by a fictional character– "What the hell was that?!"

.First of all, I'm impressed the DS can even DO realistic photos. Secondly, I'm a person who hates mixing media, especially in an animated situation.Thirdly, this looks like something from a Beatles music video, if the Beatles played terrifying timpanis and brass. It would have really been cool if they used the same engine for the Ho-oh cutscene to animate this, and if they had to do some sort of space scenery, they could animate some sort of solar system (I'm a big fan of online orreries) or show different places on the Pokémon universe's Earth (Ideally set to an ultra-epic remix of the traditional Pokémon title theme) as your egg forms (as some sort of clever loading-bar-esque thing). This is one of the only things that have both confused and amused me. Good job, Gamefreak, GOOD JOB!!!
