By technicality both Arceus and Regigigas would be the first Normal Legendaries since they were both introduced in the same Generation.

"Well, since Regigigas comes before Arceus shouldn't it be first?"

No, Rhydon was created before Bulbasaur so the Pokedex doesn't put them in order according to creation.

Which was legal to obtain first?
Regigigas, since all the player needed to do was gather the other Regi's in order to capture it. (Keep in mind D/P came out in 2006) Legally, Arceus was obtainable in a 2009 event, originally meant to be distributed through azure flute.

So in '06, I would've have a Regigigas while in '09 I would've finally gotten Arceus.
No problem, glad to have helped! :)
