Ok, I'll take a shot at this topic. Let's pretend for a minute that MewTwo and Arceus would fight each other, be it in the story of a game or in the Anime. And let's also pretend that they consider Arceus to be a God Pokemon in either medium. Here's my thoughts on it.

If MewTwo and Arceus were to fight, it means that one of them has to be evil (or at the least, really ticked off). Now, both video games and Anime are notorious for having their 'Gods' turn out to be evil. It's already been shown that MewTwo isn't really evil (at least not in the Anime), so that kind of narrows that part down. And the only way this could really be legitimate and not just like the sparring match Mew and MewTwo had in the first movie, is if nothing stopped the evil Pokemon from turning good. So we have:
MewTwo (good guy) vs Arceus (bad guy)
Now, assuming the whole 'good always triumphs over evil' cliche (used in shows of Pokemon's caliber) doesn't apply here, MewTwo'd simply win on the grounds that mortals slay Gods all the time in Anime. Another cliche. In other words, MewTwo would win.
Unless he was mind controlled by a bad guy. But that would again not fit the criteria of the fight. So that scenario is non-applicable.
