Planning thread for the various articles to be done, following the first article giving a general description (https://daily.pokecommunity.com/2020/04/25/major-discoveries-revealed-from-pokemon-gold-and-silver-demo/). There's been no evidence of C&Ds continuing, with the likes of TCRF, etc increasing analysis on the newest beta leaks, so I feel it'd fine to have pictures included in analysis articles.

Feel free to offer up ideas for articles, including if you want to write it yourself or not, or give feedback on them. No need to be Daily staff to write articles, remember!

Article ideas:
  • 2nd gen starters. How the development has been very... weird for them, with the fire and water type starters redone, and the middle stage for Chikorita's line being weird. Evidence Cyndaquil had a different sprite and maybe its own line, while the original fire starter has some resembence to early Teddiursa... I want to write this.
  • Prototype Pokemon music. See examples uploaded on this person's channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/SankyMaster/videos Could be in-depth, could be a short 'look early versions of music here'. Up for grabs, willing to help co-write or offer suggestions though.

Articles being worked on:

I got quite spooked after the C&Ds when the beta sprites got out, but if they've stopped then I think this is great. There is a lot of fascinating information and even things that we can infer from all the beta information. If we plan to make this a connected series, perhaps my older skateboard article can be added to it? I've not seen any more beta information pertaining to the skateboard, but it does go hand-in-hand with the beta map analysis. That aside, I give a +1 approval to the current ideas. Right now I'm unsure of any additional articles that could come of it save for more sprite analysis (original Wooper, original Ariados, original Celebi, and the fact that Larvitar used a placeholder so late in development are some standouts to me).

Yeah, good idea. I'll go through previous articles like that and set up an article series... or maybe its own category, perhaps?

Sprite analysis and stuff on the placeholder sprites sounds like decent topics in themselves, imo.
