Beams. Yeah, they're about the same. Same general explosion size, same general effectiveness on enemies. One just looks cooler than the other.
Melee. Heisei has the advantage in strength of course, but Showa has speed, exceptional melee skills, and intelligence on his side. Over all, Showa is a much better melee fighter than Heisei is.
Durability. Sure, Heisei Godzilla swam in the mantle. While Showa Godzilla took mountain cutting beams, missiles that could rip entire city blocks from the earth, acid strong enough to bring down a building in it's gas form, etc. They are equal here.
Regeneration: Heisei has the advantage in this department.
Intelligence: Showa, no contest. And this here plays a big part in battles.
Nuclear pulse: Only Heisei has this.
Yeah, there would be no domination what so ever. They equally tough in differing ways. truthfully, aside from the whole swimming under the mantle scenario, Heisei Godzilla hasn't done anything all that special.

Heisei Godzilla's Atomic Ray actually blows stuff up. Showa Godzilla's ray sets stuff on fire. Melee? A shove from Heisei Godzilla would put Showa on his ass, while the useless kung-fu would do what exactly to Heisei? Intelligence? Showa is smarter but not by a lot. Durability? (sigh) Cutting through a kaiju is MUCH harder then cutting through a mountain. And FYI, it wasn't a mountain it was a pillar-esc rock formation. His only real impressive durability feat is having a few Finger Missiles down his throat. And let's just think about this for a second okay? Heisei Godzilla, swam under the skreeonk mantle. Rodan is easily considered as durable as Godzilla in the Showa series right? Rodan died in a Volcano, well actually in a small stream of lava. Heisei Godzilla slept inside a volcano for around 5 years. He had acid spit directly into his face and that didn't faze him. Also, I'm willing to bet 3 Plasma Grenades would out right decimate Showa Godzilla and just about any other Showa kaiju.
