Any more is speculation (well we could safely add babies and evos obviously..), but I wouldnt doubt it includes casual Hoenn/Sinnoh DNA...Unova is a much bigger question mark...

    -It is ASSUMED to be the ancestor
    Because it seems to have DNA of all pokemon. Its a theory. It might as well just be simply an extraordinary case, it might be extending its DNA everytime it comes in touch with more species, or some other explanation..

    -Arceus is said to have created the universe
    We cannot deny the factuality of this story unless they added more legendaries with similar backstories (like if the next game introduced a second Arceus-like pokemon). But we cannot confirm it either, since all we have is a myth.
    But even assuming it was true, how the heck would anyone ever know? Its not like ancient people of Sinnoh would have been there to witness the birth of the universe, remember they didn't exist yet.

    The observation that Arceus is a mere pokemon like any other (it is limited by the same things, has real stats, a type, can use 4 moves, can be caught and used in battles.......) is a very important one.
    I mean, when you ask something like "if pokemon had a god..", (of course it all depends on definition of that word etc. but) how could possibly a pokemon be the answer?

    How does being the assumed ancestor make it superior? Its more like jack of all trades, master of none...
    Actually If Mew is the ancestor that does make it surperior to all of them because he's the creator. With Mew being creator it's DNA genetics sends it a signal to know what the next Pokemon is going to do. If no Pokemon couldn't take out Mewtwo in the movie then no Pokemon could take out Mew. Remember in the movie when Mew and Mewtwo started fighting? They were both equally powered and remember when other Pokemon tried to fight Mewtwo they didn't have a chance? So if numerous Pokemon can't stand up to Mewtwo then how could 1 Pokemon even think about trying to battle Mew?

    You do got a lot of points there tho. But the scientist you mentioned is different as well. In every region there's different scientist so that means that they discover Pokemon that the other regions don't know about yet. How do we know that Prof. Oak discovered Mew and how do we not know Prof. Rowan didn't discover Arceus around the same time? I still believe that Mew created Arceus because Mew wasn't powerful enough to create the universe. But then, what created Mew? Arceus couldn't of have because Mew created it because of being the ancestor.
