You don't need to have caught any pokemon. All you need is the event or the action replay code to make the event. Then go catch Arceus. You should probably use a master ball or ultra or timer balls.

What is number 493 on the pokedex?

You need to do the event and get a Azure Flute (It's this purple-ish instrument that has lots of holes on it) and then go to Spear Pillar and use it as soon as you get there. Then there will be stairs and then ARCEUS will appear. ARCEUS is REALLY hard to catch so if you don't have a master ball, it's practically impossible to catch.
