I don't get how Mewtwo was in R/G versions before Mew

If Mew wasn't even supposed to be in the game, how was it that Mewtwo, its clone, was in the game and no questions were asked.

Perhaps the Pokemon itself wasn't meant to be in the game (instead it was just an actual legend) and instead was meant to serve as just lore for Mewtwo.

Maybe it was to build up suspense.

"MewTWO?" What could "MewONE" possibly be?!

I think it was just supposed to be backstory. Something for you to wonder and speculate about, but never actually see.

It's very likely that this is true. Still, it's very strange, considering that Mew was the very first trademark for Pokemon that they ever made (even before the name Pocket Monsters). To think that they were originally going to leave Mew as something only briefly mentioned in the Cinnabar Mansion journals...

I just assumed it was meant to be fluff.

Because even if it didn't actually exist in the game's programming, it was still a Pokemon and name that Nintendo/Game Freak didn't want to lose ownership of.

True, and I guess it would have made for an exciting reveal as a Gen II Pokemon that would be obtainable in "Pocket Monsters 2" when they announced it the next year...

But Gamefreak could hardly afford to release Red and Green. I doubt they expected they would be making sequels.
