Beta sprites remake

I've found that the book "Satoshi Tajiri: New Game Design" had various sprites on the cover, so I've remade them.
While some clearly come from Pokemon Red & Pokemon Green beta version, others have an unknown provenance.
Maybe they were also planned for Pokemon.


If you want to use them, no need to ask, but please give credits (both for Game Freak and me).

Awesome sprites! I can't find the walrus-like thing for the life of me but whatever, awesome to see people like you bring these obscure factoids to the public! :)

Thank you !
I searched a bit but I couldn't find the walrus anymore either... Pretty sure I haven't invented it though XD

This is very nice! I love beta stuff. Even heard of Blue (or Green if you prefer this way), Heroine which was meant to be included in Pokémon R/G/B/Y? Artwork with her was even featured in the gaming guide/manual as I've heard. Finally she came out in FR/LG...

Well, old friend of mine did amazing job in trying to reconstruct her sprite based on these artworks and one official comic, please check ghost-missingno.deviantart.com… , ghost-missingno.deviantart.com… or ghost-missingno.deviantart.com… if you have some free time ;)!

Of course I already heard of her, she's also one of the main protagonists on Pokémon Special.
The sprites are very good!

The coffee mug makes sense: apparently in an earlier build you were tasked with bringing that old man in Veridian City his coffee so that he would let you pass.

But a key? A basketball? :iconlolwhutplz:
