When asked "which Pokémon is the first one?" without any further context, five answers are valid:
Bulbasaur is number #001 in the National Pokédex
Arceus is a deity in the Pokémon mythology it hatched from an egg then cerated the universe
Mew is the common ancestor of all non-Mythical Pokémon, and probably most mythical Pokémon as well
Poliwag was the first Pokémon created by Satoshi Tajiri that ended up in the games. It also has #001 in the Pokédex assigned in early concepts
Rhydon has the internal ID 0x01 in Generation 1 (0x00 is the glitch Pokémon 'M, often mistaken for MissingNO. because it uses the same sprite, but it's not an official Pokémon)
Is anyone there? People who have seen Mirage Island.
I can not believe in the presence of the island. https://donphan.social/media/KRivY_5Gm7F8f-9xcOo
I'm from Celadon City, Kanto.
I can only use simple English. However, I want to get along with you through Pokémon.
