    In a page we can see that there are some scrapped Pokémon:
    • #56 Diaa (“Deer”)
    • #62 Kurokki (“Crocky,” as in crocodile)
    • #67 Kakutasu (“Cactus”)
    • #68 Jaggu (As in “jag,” like the jagged spear protruding from its shark head)
    Many sprites match existing Pokémon, some Pokémon have the have the same Japanese names as they do now while the ones for Farfetch’d, Blastoise, Rhydon and Spearow are different.

    I actually love how the old unused designs are in the spotlight these days because it reminds us to go back to our roots and take a glimpse of the development process of the game we loved.
