This hasn't been seen in over 20 years. You can find all the info (including a ROM download) here.

The Beta Pokemon can be found here. There are early designs, totally scrapped designs and design ideas that would (sort of) return in future games. Be sure to read up on the original plans for the Kanto region.

That's actually an early version of Kingdra. Unfortunately TCRF seems to be down (edit: no it's just slow due to traffic), and that site has the names of every Pokemon.

That eel thing is beautiful, and I like a lot of these designs, I wonder why they got scrapped.

Oh cool, there’s a Farfetch’d evolution in there, if my eyes don’t deceive me.

In retrospect, it's a little silly that Pinsir didn't get an evolution when Scyther did. And you know what? Still silly.

Glad they toned it down on the pre-evo/baby pokemon, though. That's a lot in that list.
