I've recently been thinking...Arceus seems to be a lot like Mew (They both learn near any move TM/HM/Move Tutor) and at one time Mew was thought to be the very first Pokemon (I really don't feel like listing out all the similarities)...Basically what I'm saying is, is Arcues a cheap wanna-be Mew on steroids? (Also I've noticed that in every generation Nintendo has added a newer, stronger Pokemon that resembles an older Pokemon, Example: Dragonite<Salamence, Flygon<Garchomp, Blaziken<Infernape, and these are just to name a few...Am I the only one that sees the similarities?)

Well, personally, I hate Arceus and much prefer Mew. Though, some people may disagree.

I agree with Shinji..

I really dislike everything about Arceus... Nintendo should of never made so many Sinnoh legendaries. Arceus wasn't needed in my opinion. So yes, i choose mew.

Mew no doubt, he is very powerful. Although many people wouldn't think so because he looks so sweet. Mew has always been a favorite.

at one time Mew was thought to be the very first Pokemon (I really don't feel like listing out all the similarities)

Think of arceus as the christian god and mew as adam/eve. Arceus was the original being (Proof #1: Arceus is classified as the alpha pokémon, alpha meaning first. Proof #2: Pokémon Platinum Pokédex entry "Emerged from an egg where there was nothing") that created everything (Proof #1: Pokémon Diamond Pokédex entry "Shaped the universe with its 1000 arms". Proof #2: Pokémon Platinum Pokédex entry "then shaped the world"), while mew was the first "mundane" poke arceus created after assigning all the legendaries their tasks (Proof #1: Mew is classified as the new specie pokémon, which indicates it was created itself. Proof #2: 4th Gen Pokédex entry "Scientists believe mew to be the ancestor of pokémon", ancestor meaning distant relative and not creator).

Basically what I'm saying is, is Arcues a cheap wanna-be Mew on steroids?

No, he is not. Coming from a battling point of view, mew is definately a supporter with the ability to baton pass almost anything. Arceus lacks this, but his ability to change type and more aggressive movepool make him distincly different from mew.

(Also I've noticed that in every generation Nintendo has added a newer, stronger Pokemon that resembles an older Pokemon, Example: Dragonite<Salamence, Flygon<Garchomp, Blaziken<Infernape, and these are just to name a few...Am I the only one that sees the similarities?)

Not technically true. In terms of legendaries, nothing improved on mewtwo until 3rd gen, and it's arguable that he was still the best special sweeper. In terms of normal pokes, blastoise remained superior to feraligatr in terms of its chosen task, charizard was superior to typhlosion, pidgeot kicked noctowl's ass until swellow came along, who is in turn about level with staraptor this generation, and I could find you some more if you like. Comparisons are always drawn between different groups of pokes, most people failed to recognise arceus brought in a new level to the pokemon mythology rather than copying mew.

I will say that I have to agree with El Gofre, I don't really like Arceus but thats mainly because Mew is one of the orignal Pokemon and I used to like it. That's all I really have to say on this topic ...

I'd like to point out that neither Arceus nor Mew learns every move. Mew learns every HM / TM move, but Arceus doesn't even do that.

I'd just like to elaborate a bit more on what El Gofre discussed.

Firstly I'd like to emphasise the point that I don't like one Pokémon over another. Every Pokémon has unique characteristics and qualities, just like humans.

Arceus seems to be a lot like Mew (They both learn near any move) and at one time Mew was thought to be the very first Pokemon (I really don't feel like listing out all the similarities)

I disagree, they are actually quite different.

By popular belief, Mew is assumed to be the first Pokémon due to what is currently known.

Silver Pokédex entry: Mew
Its DNA is said to contain the genetic codes of all Pokémon, so it can use all kinds of techniques.

Ruby Pokédex entry: Mew
Mew is said to possess the genetic composition of all Pokémon. It is capable of making itself invisible at will, so it entirely avoids notice even if it approaches people.

Diamond Pokédex entry: Mew
Because it can use all kinds of moves, many scientists believe Mew to be the ancestor of Pokémon.

Might I add due to the rarity of Mew and its capabilities as a Pokémon, many perceive it to be the creator. However one should know majority of the information is based before that of Arceus. We should clear up some confusion in terms of what is actually described. It's stated Mew possesses the genetic composition of every Pokémon, not to of created Pokémon and the universe like Arceus.

Diamond Pokédex entry: Arceus
It is described in mythology as the Pokémon that shaped the universe with its 1,000 arms.

So what's the end result?

In my opinion, Mew is based somewhere in between the birth of Arceus and the creation of Pokémon. Which brings me to the term "Ancestor" (The actual or hypothetical organism or stock from which later kinds evolved.).

First i want to say, that nothing of both is able to learn every move. They only could learn (nearly) every TM and their level-up-moves. But for one of hundred examples, it gives no TM Flare Blitz and none of them can learn it by level-up. So, the only Pokemon who is able to learn every move, i believe, is Smeargle.

Well i like Arceus a lot, it looks cool, and its ability is simply awesome. But called as the "God of Pokemon" it should have more features, not only this ability.. I don't like Mew much... it looks not like a Legendary oO

Mew is just plaina dorable, but Arceus is pretty strong. :X

Abput who was first: Mew or Arceus, I am going to have to say Arceus, sadly. Also, using Pokedex entries before Arceus was made is kinda inaccurate. :\
Diamond Because it can use all kinds of moves, many scientists believe Mew to be the ancestor of Pokémon. Scientists believe it was the first Pokemon, not neccesarily meaning it is the first Pokemon. :\

Just for nostalgia's sake, I'll have to say i prefer Mew (though I do quite like Arceus' dragon and Water Formes. XD)

Personally, I like the both of them, a lot. But I like Mew a little more. Why? I don't know, maybe because it was probably the original creator before Arceus came in, or maybe because it looks pretty awesome, I don't know. But I like Mew a bit more.

Lt_Nite

Personally I never liked Arceus compared to Mew. I grew up with Mew being "the original one" so I prefer him over Arceus any day. Just my opinion, though.

Maybe, however most legends in the Pokémon universe occur in parties of three, in this case the Dragon trio.

Dialga controls time and Palkia controls space, two aspects of the four-dimensional universe that the Pokémon world, like our own, is a part of. The final member, Giratina, apparently has control over other dimensions like the Distortion World, which may itself be a location with a fourth spacial dimension.

So, the only Pokemon who is able to learn every move, i believe, is Smeargle.

Although Smeargle can learn any set of moves with the move Sketch. In Generation II, Sketch can't be used to learn the following moves:

Selfdestruct
Explosion
Metronome


In Generation IV, Sketch cannot be used to learn:

Chatter


Fun fact:
Smeargle is one of three Pokémon legally able to use Transform, the others being Mew and Ditto.

Psychically, Arceus COULD smash Mew into pieces, but Mew can learn every move possible.
So Mew.

June 10th, 2009, 02:31 PM
Personally, from my battle experiences, I'd choose Arceus over Mew any day!

Arceus' signature move, Judgement, owns my oponents in PBR when I play.

Even if my Arceus is cheated, I still love it(why do you think I have 22 of those fricken things!)

But I'd choose Mew for like, originality. Since it was the first legendary Pokemon I ever knew.

hes The origin of all pokemon, so the whole "Arceus made the universe" is impossible because it originated from mew
ergo, nintendo cant follow its own story line

I think Mew is better :3. Do you know why? Because it's cute xD. Powerful and it's speed is much better than Arceus. Try to think. That Mew can Transform into an arceus also :3. So i think mew is really much better than arceus. And as what others have said. Arceus cannot learn any TM/HM. But Mew does.

I would have to say Mew. This comes from me being a fan of Mew ever since I was a little girl. I just think it's really cute and all around Mew kicks major butt.........and Arceus is just Butt Ugly to me... :( Besides, Mew's an original... ^^;;

Wait, wait, wait, i don't understand why so many people hate Arceus, although i do understand that it DOES look quite wierd. However, i think that adds to Arceus's uniqueness and the fact that it doesn't look like what you would really expect, exactly the way that we won't know what God will look like. It's DIFFERENT, and i think that makes it look so kick-ass XD

Mew and Arceus are completely different because Mew wins in the cute factor but Arceus wins in the kick-ass factor.

I like both but i think Arceus is just so wicked =)

I Laugh at your Misfortune!
June 18th, 2009, 10:53 AM
Mew makes sense - its small and cute and looks quite weak, but its actually pretty powerful. That's acceptable.

Arceus looks like a GOAT and is supposedly GOD. That's not D:

June 18th, 2009, 11:03 AM

Mew is the most famous Pokemon ever. Really,
Because, think about it, how many rumor have been based around catching/finding or just seeing Mew in-game?

Plus, Mew was first!

Maybe it's because I played Pokemon from the beginning... but I dunno... Mew is just better in my eyes.

Shem
June 18th, 2009, 07:31 PM
Honestly, I had no problem with Arceus. So way back when people thought it was a god but it's just a rare, strong pokemon that they didn't understand. People in the real world have done that too, for example the Kracken is theorized to have been based off an encounter with a giant squid.

Now with an event coming in HG/SS where he creates pokemon, it's pretty much confirmed that he is a god, which is stupid and completely kills the unique feel to pokemon. It used to be a simple story where a kid gets a pokemon, gets good at it, and gets tangled up with a group of bad people on the way, and it's now save the world and meet/catch all kinds of godly pokemon that created everything!

Even though it's gamefreak's/Nintendo's fault, Arceus is the embodiment of this stupidity, thus I hate him with an undying passion...

Mew>Arceus

Hell, I like Bidoof more than I like Arceus.

I like Arceus for battling and deviantart pics (there's some sweet ones), but Mew elseways. It'd make a better pet (unless you feel the need to god-mod the univarse).
Mew looks better on paper, and has enough mystic stuff about it that it's perfectly acceptable even when compared.

Mew is the one that seem more like the most powerful pokemon (ask me but i don't know why, it just look like that to me :0 ). And the First movie was really awesome with it, so I don't know about Arceus, but I really prefer the good old Mew :)

Yes, to me, Arceus really is just a crappy Mew wannabe.
Mew was one of the originals, that's enough for me to choose Mew.
I think almost every legendary from D/P looks lame. Or at least most of them don't look like Pokemon in my opinion. (Except Shaymin).
Anyway... 151 > rest

June 21st, 2009, 09:24 AM
To be honest, Mew is my utter most FAVE Legendary ever. Nothing can beat it in my opinion. Mew should have been the original one or something, but whatever, Mew is awesome. It was the FIRST true Legendary! It was the last of it's kind! The only one! (Before the anime spoilt that.) Mew was a Pokémon that you couldn't just catch in the game with out a cheat or a special event.

Mew WAS the ORIGINAL one. Since the beginning of Pokémon, Mew was the original one! Sure it wasn't the creater of the world or anything amazing like that, but if you ask me, Mew should have been...

I guess I'm just a Mew lover, but Arceusis just SO LAME!

Pekin
June 21st, 2009, 03:51 PM
I'm gonna have to say Mew, because I got into Pokémon with the RBY series, so I've always thought of Mew as being, like, "the original one". Besides, the idea of a Pokémon that created the universe is just ridiculous, imo.

Arceus is stronger than mew statwise. Mew is stronger than Arceus cuteness and nostalgia-wise. Arceus is actually the 'original one' who created every pokemon out there and Mew is believed to be the ancestor of all pokemon as it contains every pokemon's gene.The result is that I can't choose between those two!
If you wanna complain about Arceus, give him a movie so I can see this "Awesomeness".

Though they appear to be similar when you first see them, there back stories are different. Arceus created the world, which included creating Mew.

Mew was the original Pokémon (other than Arceus) who gave the original genes for Pokémon. He proceded to breed and as anyone who knows what evolution is (in the real world, not the Pokémon kind) his original DNA slowly changed into loads of different species.

Though I prefer Mew.

I agree completely with you! But I think that as they thought about Arceus later it was featured later. When the first games were made Satoshi tajiri was not so famous as suggested by the following:

Tajiri always thought that Nintendo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo) would reject his game, as the company did not really understand the concept at first. However, the games turned out to be a complete success, something Tajiri and Nintendo never expected, especially because of the declining popularity of the Game Boy.(taken from wikipedia)

Tajiri just made the games as he liked insects and wanted to do something different. He probably didn't thought of making a pokemon god at that time as he just wanted the games to be successful and thus couldn't have thought Arceus at that time. If you understand what I mean! (TAJIRI WAS AFRAID THAT NINTENDO WOULD REJECT POKEMON RED/GREEN!!!!!)

In my opinion, they're both odd, Mew is some sort of naked mole rat-cat thing, while Arceus is a goat/wheel. I think I'll go with Mew, since it looks better, though in a fight, it'd be obvious who would win.

Also, Mew does not have Porygon's genes. (Though this is mainly because Porygon does not have genes and is made out of a programing code of sorts made tangible through advanced scientific means blah blah blah ext.)

Mew is the very first legendary, therefore he beats Arecus in all categories.

Uuhhhhmmm. Neither

And if were fighting over mew being better because it can learn any move (tm and hm), and move tutor no?)

Smeargle > Mew and arceus
He can legally learn any move (except chatter and struggle I believe )
So there

Seriously tho, Arceus = God. Mew = Adam / Eve
You could think of mew being the mother of all pokemon
Whereas Arceus created Mew itself
Mew bred, and gave birth
And pokemon evolved and began to adapt to enviornments, etcetera etcetera yaddayaddayadda

Point being

Mew and Arceus aren't the same
Mew is not the creator, Arceus is

I like mew a lot better. I don't really like Arceus at all for some reason...

Mew sucks (You can disagree, okay?) because it isn't a Pokemon God.
Arceus is the one who creates all Pokemon Hand Crafted. It's the first Pokemon Being in the uninverse. Nothing can beat the crap out of it. Nothing. I repeat, nothing, especially a Pokemon Being.

Hmmm... I dont know. Mew is cool and is the original but it was kinda annoying in the movie... I'll make my decission after I've seen the latest one with arceus in it.

While I don't dislike Arceus, I do in fact prefer Mew due to its nostalgic value.

Like a lot of people have said, Mew has nostalgic value. Back in the day when Pokemon came out, there were so many rumors about how to get Mew (remember the mysterious truck?) that were mostly all a lie. Mew was an actual legend, whilst Arceus can just be hacked these days. The mystical part has been taken away, although that's not necessarily Gamefreak's fault really.

So mew. Because it was actually a legend at school, and the guy who had one was universally worshipped or something

I like them both, but I do understand where you're coming from.

Alright, firstly, there is no way of knowing who created whom, it really depends on who you believe, the pokedex made by the original great trainers (red, blue, gold, and ruby) or the new pokedex made by platinum which included information she learned from mythology books.

According to science, mew is the ancestor of all pokemon and it has the genes of all pokemon (including arceus). This is why it has transform, it can transform into arceus, it has arceus' genes.

According to religion, arceus created the universe; presumably mew is not part of the universe and cannot have existed before arceus.

In pokemon, just as in the real world, Science is superior gateway to truth.

Winner:Mew
