Unlike the general conscious Arceus is in fact NOT god of the pokemon world in any context. In fact thats pretty much a western religion view of him. Looking at it from the Japanese perspective though and it looks more like Arceus is in fact based off an ancient deity that only created others(in this case dialga palkia and the lake trio and possibly giratina) and once it did that it just left. Went off somewhere and disappeared leaving its creations to act as gods themselves in a way. So in essence it did what the pokedex said it created the universe with its 1000 arms and after that it created the legendary pokemon(stated above) and left. It is in no way "god" of the pokemon world nor of all pokemon and you have to think about it pokemon is primarily for kids so having a god would be very odd for Nintendo as thats almost saying they think religion A is real which conflicts with religions B-Z all over the world.
Though the new movie(yes spoilers BEWARE) involving arceus lables him as the most powerful pokemon and makes fine use of his ability.
Thats what was said with mew and a couple other legendaries that I can't remember.Trust me, give it a generation or two and there will be a new "god of all pokemon" and Arceus will be in his/her shadow and people will be calling this new pokegod overrated.
Arceus is the god of all pokemon, and mew is the ancestor, which means he has all of the pokemon DNA in its body.
mewtwo is a clone of mew, its nothing related to Arceus. Mewtwo should have never happened. If you dont know what im talking about, watch Pokemon, the first movie, mewtwo vrs mew.
wait so most of you people are saying that the god of all pokemon came from an egg wow that is awesome oh wait mew didnt come from an egg weird and arceus is powerfull ok maybe the most powerfull but still a god came to be from an egg? that is rich people,seriously there is no god of pokemon if so then proffesor juniper for example would not be searching of the origin of pokemon since that the pokedex as you guys are convinced says that it is the "god" of all pokemon , people a god comes from an egg how amazing and aswell i thought legendaries do not breed and breed means they do not lay eggs but do they come from eggs? no they just are there and lugia no does not breed but it has a baby why because lugia is not immortal and so are some other pokemon only are just one in all of the world but the 2nd lugia is called Silver and it probably is borned to be the 2nd lugia in the world and the first lugia is just really ancient so it has to have a son if you want to give it a gender anyways lugia is just different and probably an amazing pokemon if you ask me now mew is just a pokemon that is awesome and has the dna of all pokemon , oh wait dna of all pokemon you mean mew has the dna of the so called god of pokemon then mew can be god aswell if arceus is god,so NO there is no GOD of pokemon at least YET but there is pokemon that created parts of the world like giratina created darkness dialga created time and palkia created space and so on , if you ask me the god of pokemon certainly exists but we might not be able to even get close to know that pokemon because it would just be weird to do so , i mean seriously why would a god show himself to ash or something like that,ok friendship exists between ash and his pokemon but still the god of pokemon probably just watches above and btw mewtwo speaks human isnt that just weird that arceus dosent? every pokemon has its own mystic mystery if i may say so,so in the end that is my answer
i always thought it was ho-oh that was the ultimate pokemon so maybe even the god pokemon so im kind of confused after seing arceus in its movie but i still think ho-oh is the top poke as it only shows itself to worth people and all and that its flame is used to start the pokemon leagues most times so just think about it one time k
