Question about pitch counts

I have always wondered how many pitches a starter throws in a complete game or how many more than the official pitches thrown. I would say if you throw a complete game usually 110-125ish mark give or take. But with all the warm up pitches between innings which I believe is 7 idk if every pitcher takes all 7 or goes 100% throwing but pregame warming up usually how many pitches do they throw? Is it safe to say a pitcher assuming is in the 110-125ish area probably throws 150 pitches on that certain day? Im not sure why pitching coaches say a certain pitch count for a guy but dont count in between innings or pregame. Just something I came up with watching pregame of the Giants game tonite and hearing about pitch counts.
