$n$-writhes denoted by $J_n(K)$ are virtual knot invariants for $n\neq 0$ and are closely associated with coefficients of some polynomial invariants of virtual knots. In this work, we investigate the variations of $J_n(K)$ under arc shift move and conclude that $n$-writhes $J_n(K)$ vary randomly in the sense that it may change by any random integer value under one arc shift move. Also, for each $n\neq 0$ we provide an infinite family of virtual knots which can be distinguished by $n$-writhes $J_n(K)$, whereas odd writhe $J(K)$ fails to do so.
