I have googled for this, but can't really put the proper terms to find an answer.

At the initial release of Pokémon Go, how many Pokémon were available? I seem to remember legendaries like Mew and Mewtwo were not, at least, but I can't confirm this.

Yes, there were no Mew / Mewtwo, or any other Legendary Pokémon, and Ditto weren't available (so there were only 145 Pokémons): Here's list of the Pokémons that were available at launch.

    While not really a part of the question, it's worth nothing that region exclusives were a thing at initial release, and trading wasn't implemented either. So Tauros, Mr. Mime, Kangaskhan, and Farfetch’d weren't globally available without spoofing or traveling Commented Jan 20, 2023 at 18:47
