I rather like Tangrowth, Lickilicky, Jumpluff etc. much more than their beta designs. I do think the anchor shark would be awesome to get someday, even if it can’t quite top Dhelmise.

Spoiler: Scrapped alternate Shellder evolution(?)
Honestly this should be a real thing. I've always wondered why the Shellder on Slowpoke's tail/head looked like this instead of like, well, Shellder or a small Cloyster.
Spoiler: Beta Tyrogue and Hitmontop
I like beta Tyrogue but I love Hitmontop's final design more.
Spoiler: Beta Miltank
It doesn't look too different from final Miltank.
An adorable fire seal!
Spoiler: Beta Delibird
And I thought final Delibird looked like Santa!
Spoiler: Beta Murkrow
I like Murkrow's final design but I love this so much!
Spoiler: Beta Blissey
So cute!! When I look at this design, I just think 'Happinas'.
Spoiler: Beta Scizor
I like that it's the same color as Scyther but I think the shiny red suits it more.
Spoiler: Scrapped Ice Pokémon line

(Known as "Wolfman" and "Warwolf" respectively, BTW.)
Interesting.
Spoiler: Beta Kingdra
Kingdra's one of my most favorite Pokemon ever and a big reason I love it is because of the deer antlers on it's head so I like the final design a lot more.
Spoiler: Beta Sneasel
IT'S ADORABLE!!!! AWW!! (Also it kind of reminds me of Mienshao)
I don't remember if I saw this one but it's so cute!!

Am I the only one who thinks that the move Curse was originally designed to be this thing's signature move, explaining the nail/pin in the move's animation?

It's a bit fatter than the final design, but otherwise, yeah. Not too different.

Okay! Now it's time for the entire beta Johto Pokédex, in in-game order!
And here's the same, just in video form with types and Sugimori-style artwork by Rachel Briggs.

Apparently, it indeed was supposed to be its signature move. Notably, its learnset data implies that Curse was a 'secret special' move for it, because it doesn't learn it until level 99, and it was programmed so that it attempts to evolve into Kyonpan starting level 2 of all things.

It could also be that those numbers were just put in as placeholders and that it was supposed to evolve later and learn the move earlier.

Not much...which isn’t a good sign at all.

*sticks a bunch of motivational posters in random, inconvenient places*

There. Those are some good signs.

Back on the nonsense thing, I might ask you just the same about what you pulled in the members’ counting thread!

Something incredible happened to me today while playing HeartGold. I was just casually exploring Dark Cave, smashing rocks out of the way, when suddenly...
