    From my point of view Arceus already got the upper hand as of how it represent all the types while Mew stay put with the ability to learn anything.

    My theory would be that Arceus created the world as "God" and sent his "child" being Mew into the created world where it represented all the Pokemon. Meaning that Arceus control the world it created (as said in the anime) while Mew does the inside
    job by roaming around the world.
    That's a possibility. Much like God and Adam/Eve, no?

    Although, I guess my confusion would be: if Mew is the ancestor of ALL Pokemon, wouldn't this include Arceus? Of course, this hypothesis was made during the Kanto era, and it was a region that appeared to be oblivious to Sinnoh myths and Arceus' existance, so it's hard to say. Interesting.
