    Of all the scrapped evos/babies, the one I find most fascinating is Anitmon. It's Ditto's evolution, but remains normal type and continues to only have Transform as a move. And it evolves with the metal coat, of all things! Scizor & Steelix just evolved by level! Scizor also isn't even a steel type, and is green like Scyther.

    Ditto is one of those Pokemon I thought would never get an evolution and the idea that it all-but-did is interesting. I suppose that might be why it was scrapped, though

    Mr. Reloaded At this point, who knows?

    I remember seeing beta Cyndaquil and Totodile and could never get over how drastically different they originally were, now that the whole cats out of the bag, I'm in awe.

    So Heracross was just an evolved Pinsir? Farfetche'd got duped lmao, poor thing. Maybe they'll come back to the idea.

    Togepi being standalone isn't too surprising really.

    I think with Pinsir, it was more they decided to let Scyther/Scizor stand on its own (maybe because it got the steel typing?), they scrapped the pinsir concept entirely and brought in a rhino beetle concept to reference beetle vs beetle insect fighting.

    That electric tiger is too adorable. ;_;

    But interesting stuff nonetheless! I’m actually kind of glad Murkrow didn’t end up like it originally was going to and I’m sad that Turban will probably never be its own Pokémon in the future.

    It seems that Espeon and Umbreon have existed back then highly unchanged even though it was a bit weird that Espeon had a different colour back then. It's also interesting that Leafeon may have intended to be in Gen 2 too.

    The beta Pichu looks awful, which makes me glad that it was changed. Some of the Pokemon look so cool that I wish they'd been used in the final G/S.

    I'm surprised by how many evolutions and pre-evolutions of Kanto Pokemon were originally planned. My favorite out of the early sprites might be the Hoppip line.

    I’ve been totally out of the loop here, but this is just amazing. There is so much to process right now.

    So much to unpack here. So many things that should have been left in. My thoughts:

    I loved the water starter's final evo, wish they would have kept it.
    Qwilfish's evo, that would have been awesome.
    Grotess is awesome and Water/Steel is fun! Wish it would have stayed in.
    So Crobat would have evolved from Golbat at lvl 44, interesting.
    Baby Paras is adorable!
    Animon (Ditto's evo) is such a weird pokemon but I love it. Weird that it evolves from a Metal Coat but isn't a steel type. Also, wonder what the stats are.
    Baby Doduo is funny lol
    Twins is SO weird but so friggin cool! Dark/Normal is awesome too! Wish it would have stayed in.
    Girafarig with both bodies is cool! And Dark/Normal instead of Psychic/Normal is interesting.
    Politoad's previous design was awesome! Also, it evolved from something called the Heart stone... weird. (Espeon also evolved from the Heart Stone).
    Unown was originally a Normal type.
    Slowking/Slowbros' Shells being an actual Pokemon is actually really cool! Water type, would have been fun!
    Baby Mr.Mime is so cute!!!
    Weepinbell evo that evolves from the Poison Stone. Really cool design!
    Kurstraw/Pangshi is cool too! Based on a voodoo doll?
    I like Murkrow's original design better.
    Scyther wasn't originally a steel type, which makes sense since it was supposed to be in gen 1
    Pinsir getting an evo...AH YEAH!
    Warwolf is awesome and I want him in!
    Original Porygon2 is weird looking.
    Likk (Lickitung's evo) is pretty cool looking. Should be a branched evo with Lickilicky
    Ho-Oh originally pure Flying?
    Leafeon was a thing in gen 2, WOW!
    Farfetch'd evo is awesome! Madame!

    Poison Stone and Heart Stone were cool. Dragon Scale would have weakened Dragon moves I assume against the user. Kind of cool. Ice Bikini weakens Ice moves, Dragonite would be wearing that Bikini all day long!

    Wow, just wow. Some cool stuff they scrapped!

    So am I, although I find some of them unnecessary, such as Mikon and Para. And I wonder if Gurotesu was the basis for Huntail's eventual design.

    I didn't even notice there was a Water/Fire type

    Really love this so far! The scrapped Pokemon are pretty cool. I think I like Scizor's original look the most.

    Umbreon was poison? I don't see how they initially came to that conclusion. The original Noctowl and Politoed are sights to be behold. The original dogs look horrible though, especially Suicune. I'm happy a large chunk of the babies never made it through, there's too many of them and they would have offered so little.

    Truer memes have never been posted.

    From a game design standpoint, I'm actually surprised that Ponyta's pre-evo didn't stick. I know we all want pegasus rapidash or something similar, but consider this: Ponyta has a 410 bst and evolves at level 40.
    Having an earlier, weaker Ponyta helps break up the monotony of going to 40 while still giving you a noticable power boost upon evolution. It's the same game design logic you can apply to Jynx, Electabuzz, Magmar, Mr. Mime (as they followed through on in gen 4) and other similar babies.

    Course it might have been moot. If the prototype is like the final version, then baby pokemon are relegated to gifts (Togepi, Tyrogue) or breeding (literally every other baby). Considering just how many baby pokemon there were originally, I'd like to think at least some of these were available in the wild, but....

    I didn't even realize Sunflora was originally Grass/Psychic.

    I think what I am most curious about is Ditto's evo. Seems like such a strange concept.

    I like a lot of the pre-evo's. I especially like that what looks like vulpix's pre-evo references the dex entry about how vulpix is born with a single tail that splits with age.

    It's Dex Entries hint at it so much too.

    Since this is the Gold part (hence no Lugia) do you believe we can also expect a Silver part?...
    I also love the idea of Giovanni being E4 member. Maybe at first there were supposed to be 2 Leagues as there is no sign of Karen and Will?
