    The 1997 magazine MicroGroup Game Review Vol.14 contains an interview with Ken Sugimori and on the cover 3 beta Pokémon from GS but the designs were intended to be thrown away (that didn't actually happen with some of them).

    None of the Pokémon featured in the cover made an appearance in the Spaceworld 1997 Demo (released on November 21, 1997 and leaked some months ago) so the designs on the cover were initially designed to be throwaway designs.
    Ken Sugimori claims they are original (like we can see with the one that resemble Clafairy/Hitmontop) but probably like he said in the third question, he liked the idea of Tyranitar and put it in the game. The same can be true for the beta turtle, it was redesigned multiple times and eventually become Tirtouga.

    Maybe the Designs from the space world demo could be edited and could appear in the future. I really want to see that ditto thing that looked like it was in constant pain Hahaha
    (Just to be clear, I am not a psycho, I just found the thing to be kinda funny, but also kinda endearing) :)
