I always viewed it as Arceus created Mew as the genesis Pokémon and every other species descended from Mew (who has the original DNA of all of them).

But I can also equally see Mew, especially as it's characterized in the anime, being too lazy to oversee the legendaries that govern time/space/nature/whatever and creating Arceus to fill that role instead.

Either way, it's all based on mythology in the canon and who knows exactly how accurate all of it is.
