An early version of Pokémon Gold and Silver, featuring dozens of Pokémon cut from the final release, has been found by fans and posted online.
The build comes from Nintendo’s Space World promotional event all the way back in November 1997. Fans over at the The Cutting Room Floor have been poring over the discovery, and have found numerous unused designs still lingering in its code.
The leak has astonished many Pokémon fans. The build includes alternate, unfinished versions of familiar locations and work-in-progress Pokémon designs kept under wraps for more than two decades by the famously secretive Pokémon Company.
