All the signature moves and great goals of all great footballers of our times have been first done by the King of Football!
First done as he has done it before them? or was the creator?
If it is the later, then we actually don't know that, despite that video that is circulating past few days that everyone is sharing.
There was plenty of talented and creative players long before Pele, actually even before he was born by some time, especially in Brazil and South America in general.
But televising Sports started in the late 30's and only a decade later live sport was a thing, and this was in more wealthier countries. The 1st World Cup on TV was in 1954, and Pele started playing in the next one.
Many of those moves he made were likely influenced by older players and peers, but during that time there was only a Pele, and he wasn't known for his modesty or honesty either. So we simply don't know the "creator" of such moves or learned them.
That said, Pele came in a perfect time and was the ambassador the game needed, as I said above he came at the start of live sport broadcasting and gave people a reason to watch, and even more, a reason to follow the game globally and care about stars in other continents, he will always be a pioneer for that. Was also a charismatic character and player, sort like Ronaldinho was during his prime, he was simply that guy who enjoyed playing and played with a smile on his face.
In a modern day, it is like the Messi vs CR7 effect during the early days of social media, when Tech companies essentially owned the world. They created biggest rivalry in sport that helped the game to grow even more in countries and areas the game wasn't as popular, putting more focus on stuff like Balon d'or and CL to higher extent. Even that isn't quit a match for Pele effect.
