Based on the information on History of the Pokémon world, legends go to say that Arceus is the first Pokémon to exist

In a vortex of complete chaos and nothingness, a single Egg comes into being, which then hatches into Arceus, the first Pokémon in existence

Also, based on the Pokédex entires from Platinum and Heart Gold & Soul Silver

Platinum: It is said to have emerged from an egg in a place where there was nothing, then shaped the world.

Heart Gold/Soul Silver: According to the legends of Sinnoh, this Pokémon emerged from an egg and shaped all there is in this world.

This information is derived from Sinnoh Myths, which is learned from a Hiker at Oreburgh Mine, and then at Canalave's library in Pokémon Platinum after catching Arceus

But it all starts with Arceus, the first. It is known as the Original One.


"The Original One breathed alone before the universe came."


If your looking for the first pokemon to exist in the pokemon world, it would be Arceus. The first pokemon in the national dex is Bulbasaur, and the first Pokemon design ever was Rhydon back when Pokemon was still called capsulemon. I think that's how it's spelled. I hope this helped :)))
