I still am super intrigued by the former middle stage of Chikorita's line. Such a weird and interesting idea!

I actually like all the ideas they had for the Johto starters during development, I prefer what they ended up with at release, but reckon they could have stood up as good starter Pokemon in their own right. All apart from, that weird alien Bayleef...

A dinosaur with some weird spy/parasite/??? motif used prior to it but after Chikorita. As for the line replaced by totodile... something vaguely loch-ness-esque?

I wouldn't mind seeing the alien bayleef sort of concept, just... not as a Starter.
Teddiursa was born as a recolour of a scrapped starter. Now that's something that really I did not see coming.
Yeah, surprised me too. It sure looked a bit awkward at first too.
