1999/04/03 Yanma - Level 10 None
1999/08/16 None None

A planned evolution for Yanma that was never really developed beyond the initial concept. The earliest instance of this Pokémon uses obvious placeholder stats, and by July the only thing that had change were its typing and egg group, both of which it shared with Yanma anyway. The only other notable data is the level at which Yanma evolved - Level 10, the lowest evolution level of any newly introduced Pokémon (besides baby Pokémon, which were later changed to either high friendship or Level 30 later on in development.)

By August 14th it was already in the process of being removed: Yanma's evolution condition was removed, it was reverted back to a Normal type, and its catch rate and base experience yield were both dummied out. It managed to hang around through to the Spaceworld 1999 demo before the Pokémon order was reorganized, though by that point an early version of Lanturn's sprite was already assigned to its slot. Yanma would have to wait until Generation IV to finally get an evolution, Yanmega.

...but for some reason, it did get five egg moves! With the inclusion of these egg moves, plus moves for other fully evolved Pokémon like Tsubomitto, Madaamu, and Purakkusu, it's likely that whoever was assigning egg moves to Pokemon didn't entirely know what they were doing. What's even stranger is that these moves are different from Yanma's egg moves. Someone caught onto this set pretty quick, because it was deleted by August 22nd.

1999/07/21 Weepinbell - Sun Stone None

Tsubomitto would have been a counterpart to Bellossom: An alternate evolution triggered by using a Sun Stone instead of a Leaf Stone on a second-stage Grass/Poison Pokémon. While Tsubomitto's stat distribution was originally more distinct from Victreebel, its final stats are almost identical but for taking 15 points from Special Attack and putting them into Attack.

If the earliest moveset looks familiar, it's because it's almost identical to Victreebel's learnset in Generation 1, except the extra Level 1 Sleep Powder has been removed. The July moveset is actually a copy of Weepinbell's at the time, only with Slam replaced by Solar Beam and Sweet Scent replaced by...Lovely Kiss, Jynx's signature move! That's an unsettling mental image. Its last known moveset deletes most of its level-up moves but keeps Growth, Razor Leaf, and Lovely Kiss as Level 1 moves.

1999/07/21 Farfetch'd - High Friendship None

Madaamu would have been a much-needed evolution for Farfetch'd, who ended up waiting another 20 years for the privilege. Compared to Farfetch'd, it has 5 more base Special Attack, 10 more base Speed and Special Defense, 20 more base HP and Defense, and 40 more base Attack. Not a spectacular evolution, but it's better than what it was before.

Compared to Farfetch'd at the same point in development, Madaamu gains compatibility with Zap Cannon, Hyper Beam, and Thunder, but strangely loses compatibility with Curse, Psych Up, Iron Tail, Double Team, and Cut. It's not clear whether this was deliberate, or if the developers updated Farfetch'd's TM pool at some point and just forgot to update Madaamu's.

Egg Moves
1999/08/17 Horn Drill Pursuit Faint Attack Steel Wing Whirlwind

Madaamu can already learn Steel Wing through TM47, and Whirlwind can be transferred from a Gen 1 Farfetch'd. "Horn Drill" is supposed to be Drill Peck; The same error can be found in an early egg move pool for Murkrow.

Norowara returns without its evolution Kyonpan, ending up as the only single-stage Pokémon on this list page to get cut. Great attack stats, middling defense stats, and pathetic HP make it a good candidate for a glass cannon setup, but the truly terrible 10 base Speed does that whole idea in. At least its Ghost/Dark typing would leave it with no elemental weaknesses. Note that, unlike every other Pokémon in the July 17th file, Norowara was not assigned any egg groups, a pretty good sign that it was already on its way out.

GS 990613 pokemon back 200.png
While the June 13th sprite bank uses the front sprite from the Spaceworld 1997 demo, the back sprite seems to be from a different design; it wears a headband, seems to be wielding a nail in its hand, and has an extra nail slung across its back.

Misdreavus took its slot by August 14th, initially keeping Norowara's Ghost/Dark typing before becoming pure Ghost.

Tsuinzu returns from the Spaceworld 1997 demo with a refined design concept. Instead of being conjoined twin ghosts, Tsuinzu is (are?) now two separate ghosts that are always moving in a clockwise spiral pattern.

Pokemon GS SW99 Back 202.png
Some time after July 30th, the initial twin ghost concept had been replaced by a younger version of Girafarig with a single horn and a mouthless tail. The new version of Tsuinzu was a Normal/Psychic type like Girafarig and, as a result of Girafarig's evolution being cut, has a higher evolution threshold. Both the front sprite of this design and its Pokédex entry (if any) are lost, having been replaced by early versions of Wobbuffet's sprite and Pokédex entry by Spaceworld 1999.

1999/04/03 Girafarig - Level 34 None

The concept of a Girafarig evoluton postdates Tsuinzu, having been added some time during the 1999 redevelopment. Unlike Yanma's planned evolution, this had a bit more development put into it in: Improved stats, which oddly enough are still lower than Girafarig's stats in the final game; and a Ghost/Normal typing, which it originally shared with Girafarig. Besides being assigned an egg group, that's where development stopped. It was replaced by an early version of Pineco by the end of July.

Yes, Shuckle originally had an evolution. However, this was back when Shuckle wasn't the defensively-specced gimmick Pokémon he later turned into, so there's nothing that interesting aside from the fact that it once existed. As with the Yanma and Girafrig evolutions, it wasn't developed much past its earliest known data in April...

Scizor's doomed counterpart Purakkusu went through a great deal of development before getting cut, including two Pokédex entries, two methods of evolution, and the addition of a Steel subtype. It was meant to form a trio with Scizor and Heracross: Each is a Bug-type Pokémon, each has the same BST (Which were all nerfed from 540 to 500 at the same time), and they're all grouped together in the early National Pokédex.

It's not clear why it was cut; perhaps having two Bug/Steel Pokémon with similar stat distributions made Purakkusu seem redundant. Whatever the case, an early version of Forretress took over its slot by the Spaceworld 1999 demo, and though Forretress is also a Bug/Steel type, its role ended up being different enough from Scizor's to justify its existence.

Purakkusu's first learnset is almost identical to Pinsir's, it just learns Slash instead of Submission. By July 21st its learnset underwent the same move shuffling as its unevolved form, and by mid August, Harden had been replaced by Protect to further differentiate itself from Pinsir.

  • Black: Moves from initial 1999/07/18 learnset.
  • Blue: Move added by 1999/08/17.

Compared to Pinsir at the same time in development, Purakkusu gained the ability to learn Rock Smash and Earthquake, but lost access to Hyper Beam for some reason.

Egg Moves
1999/08/17 Psybeam Counter Take Down Cross Chop Faint Attack

Another set of egg moves for a fully evolved Pokémon. Cross Chop would have been nice...if anyone else in the Bug group could pass it down. At least Pinsir could already learn Take Down in Generation I.

Please note that Purakkusu doesn't learn a single Steel-type move in any of these sets. Thing got shafted.

1999/08/16 Piloswine - Level 30 None

With a unique footprint and cry, this "Pending" evolution made it furthest in development, and seems to have been the only one to have been worked on past July 18th. Compared to Piloswine's stats at the time, this evolution would have 15 more base Special Attack, 20 more base Attack, 25 more base HP, and 30 more base Defense and Special Defense. Compared to Piloswine's eventual Generation IV evolution Mamoswine, its BST is 30 points lower.

Like the rest of the Swinub line, this evolution was originally geared more towards being a tank; had it survived into the final game with the same stat distributions as its other forms, its Attack and Speed stats would have increased, while its Defense and Special Defense stats would have dropped.

The Swinub line had a placeholder moveset that only contained Powder Snow through at least July 21st. By the middle of August, Swinub and Piloswine had their final moves, though the levels were shuffled around a bit aftewards. The only difference between Piloswine's learn and its evolution is that it learns Mist four levels later and Blizzard eight levels later.

  • Black: Moves from initial 1999/07/18 learnset.
  • Blue: Move added by 1999/08/17.

While initially skipped over in the original wave of TM assignments, Piloswine's evolution eventually got some TMs assigned by Spaceworld 1999, and they're identical to Piloswine's TM learnset at the time.
