Welcome to Kingdom Hearts Answers. What would you like to know?

During his time little was known about Heartless and Nobodies were a by product of experimentation with them. Xehanort didn't have a real opportunity to study Heartless until he became an apprentice of Ansem the Wise because then he had all the resources, assistance, and privacy he needed.

He probably could produce his own Heartless and Nobody now if he wanted to.
