It was mew because if you watch Pokemon the first movie you might hear one of the scientists say that mew was the first Pokemon.Guess what this answer is? WRONG!Rhydon might be Pokemon #112, but he was drawn up before any other Pokemon, even his pre-evolution Rhyhorn.

Despite being a ground type, Rhydon can be taught water-type moves such as Rain Dance, Whirlpool, and Aqua Tail.

According to interviews with Ken Sugimori, Rhydon's index number in the game code is 001 in Generation I, precisely because he was the first one coded in. There are also early sketches of Rhydon from Capsule Monsters, the conceptual predecessor to Pokémon.

Rhydon was inspired by many different dinosaurs. Its name can roughly be translated to Rock Lord. According to the game, Rhydon's drill-horn is capable of crushing un-cut diamonds, and it can knock down buildings with a single strike of its tail.

no. Pikachu was the first Pokemon to be popular, Bulbasaur was the first to be drawn. Arceus is the first Pokemon to exist in the Pokemon legends but during beta testing, they found that pikachu was much more popular, and in the interest of profits, they changed it. this is why clefairy has that big long story about being the "moon Pokemon". Pikachu is commonly mistaken as the first Pokemon to be designed, but it is not the first at all. Rhydon was the first designed Pokemon and programmed in Pokemon Red and Green before the rest of the Pokemon.
