What is the oldest Pokemon move?

What is the oldest move that can still be used? And if there is an older move that can not be used anymore, please do put it.

I think it is all the moves in Gen 1.
There are no moves that have ceased use. So as mentioned, every Gen 1 move would count.

Bulbapedia - list of moves

By index number, Pound is the first, and therefore oldest, move.

I think that makes sense, since Mew is the original Pokemon and Pound is its first starting move, making Pound the original move (I guess?).

As for no-longer used moves, I don't think there are any. All moves are still available to the Pokemon that can learn them, via levelling, breeding, TM etc. etc.

Rhydon was the first pokemon fyi, but thanks
No I mean in the Pokemon universe, not first Pokemon designed. Mew contains the DNA of all Pokemon.
So my answer fits your description.

If you mean Arceus, the Pokemon god then the four oldest moves are:

Seismic Toss
Cosmic Power
Natural Gift
Punishment

And if we were talking about the oldest move that can't be used by any other Pokemon, it's:

Judgement
