If a deity like being feels like travelling with someone, then it will.

Arceus in daycare center.
Playing someone who kills people in a video game = Murderer?
Playing a Loli in a video game = Pedo? I don't think so.

Dude, there are two ways you can look at Arceus, in the context of being in the Pokemon world:

He's a really powerful Pokemon capable of creating other Pokemon who are, in turn, capable of controlling space and time.

Or:

He's God.

Do you have ANY idea how BORED he must be? Some trainer manages to call him down. Okay, fair enough. Might want a miracle or something. Trainer CHALLENGES HIM TO A FIGHT. Then proceeds to try and CAPTURE AND CONTROL HIM.

Arceus follows the trainer because one: He's got nothing to better to do, and two: The Trainer who caught him has the AUDACITY TO TRY AND CONTROL GOD.

I do. I mean seriously they should have made Arceus uncatchable. Or atleast if you did catch it(to get the Pokedex entry) it would immediately release itself afterward.

Who says gods in the Pokemon universe are omnipotent or omniscient? Maybe they are like the Greek gods in terms of behavior. Very flawed and human-like.

This. I feel bad for Arceus being so bored all the time.

I don't feel that way at all. Who says God can't be caught? Perhaps it is a sign that the Pokemon world is polytheistic or is like the Greek's pantheon.

There are other gods in the Pokemon world, and we can catch them, so yeah. Arceus is a god, not the God.
