Information regarding Gen 3 before its release has been discovered. This information IS dated close to release, hence much of this will look similar to the end result.

However, the unfortunate news: there are no sprites to see these in action - perhaps these will come at a later date. Stay tuned!

Now the relevant information:

Leftover prototype Gen 3 Pokémon data:
- Base data: https://protocrystal.neocities.org/agbmons.html
- Level-up moves: https://protocrystal.neocities.org/wazaoboe.html

Latios/Latias just have 4 moves but I can't find what they are.

Anything not listed, such as Lombre, has full movesets programmed in.

Non-placeholder stats compiled by sb879:

These are in HP/Atk/Def/SpA/SpD/Spd, order, not the HP/Atk/Def/Spd/SpA/SpD used internally and on the neocities page.

Grovyle: 50/55/45/75/65/80

Combusken: 55/70/50/80/60/55
Blaziken: 75/110/70/110/70/95

Marshtomp: 60/80/60/60/60/50
Swampert: 90/110/90/90/90/60

Poochyena: 35/50/35/30/30/50

Shedinja: "1"/45/90/60/90/25

Taillow: 40/60/30/30/30/70

Breloom: 70/120/70/50/70/70

Latias: 90/90/100/120/140/120
Latios: 90/100/90/140/120/120

Notes by him:
  • Blaziken had 95 speed, albeit with slightly lower 110 attack
  • Mightyena and Linoone were super horrible
  • Shedinja still had 1 HP, but its best stats were its defenses
  • Spinda had a real, though still poor stat spread (which is very disorienting to see its beta-looking stat spread in the "Final" column)
  • Pelipper had 85 base attack at the cost of its defense
  • Claydol had 90 base speed
  • Sableye was a fragile physical sweeper
  • The entire Aron had much worse attack and defense
  • Lati@s were absurd with +10 in every stat compared to final

More interesting bits (if any) to follow!

How are you going to give Loudred Huge Power and then give Exploud Drizzle?

Yeah guessing this build leaked out at a time where they were reshuffling the ability list around. Some of these are probably more probable in terms of "we wanted this" (Vibrava's compound eyes comes to mind) than others.


I assume this is from the same trickle of leaks from the big Nintendo hack earlier this year, yeah? Guess that makes sense, we had the gen 1 & 2 protos and some debug gen 6 & 7, and presumably those gen 4 stuff was also from around this time.

From the descriptors, I imagine we'll get sprites sooner than later.

Judging by this, most of their evolution placeholder data was 20 for a second stage and 30 for a second stage. With an occasional 15 thrown in here and there.

Pretty curious about Kaen's line

Correct, most of this is from that leak. They just release it when they care to :p

The people holding onto this information are confirmed to have more information, which could include sprites.

Curiosity about Kaen's line: These are the only 2 cut Pokémon on the list so far (replaced by Nosepass and Torkoal). In the German Debug Ruby released many years ago, there are 2 (and only 2) unused cries alongside everyone else's. Perhaps these belonged to the Kaen line?

You can listen to the cries here:

You can listen to the cries here:
Seems like a reasonable theory to me, it seems like these 2 got pretty far along before getting cut. Guess they didn't want a second 2-stage fire line for some reason?

I wouldn't be surprised if Plusle/Minun, which seemed to have only been partially implemented, replaced a separate 2-stage line. Their designs as-is don't really lend themselves to an evolution. Has anyone figured out what their names might have meant? Same with Kaen's line.
 
I wouldn't take the abilities as proof of anything, really. Kyogre inexplicably has Static as its ability (and is the only one of its trio with an ability to begin with), Registeel had no abilities unlike the rest of its trio, etc.

I agree with this. Being an experimental phase or something, but there's a lot of stuff that thematically could pass, so it's not that ALL of them weren't maybe planned at one point. Things like Compoundeyes Vibrava, Hustle Vigoroth, Shadow Tag Banette, and Insomnia Sableye aren't unrealistic in the slightest.

Other random tidbits:



Apparently this image is proof that you could combine moves in Double Battles to form new moves? (Ember + Gust = Heat Wave) It's likely this concept was deemed too complicated to code and scrapped - the Pledge moves in Gen V are probably the first "realization" of this somehow.

Team Aqua and Team Magma were called Team Marine and Team Tunnel.

There's a bunch of mockups and pre-FRLG sprite stuff if anyone cares about that too I suppose.

Combination moves were pretty common in the anime, where "double battles" first started so I wouldn't be surprised if combo moves were considered here too, likely some overlap in inspiration. Might have inspired the combo system in Contests as well.

I'd love to see some mockups & pre-FRLG sprites, you never know what interesting things you might find. But could you reupload them? If you just hotlink from 4chan they tend to break...

Interesting that Taillow and and Swablu are pure Flying. Also interesting that Kaen is a green Fire-type. Maybe it eventually became Numel? Numel is one of only two Fire-types with green on it (the other being Alolan Marowak) and I don't see it on that list.
I just remembered that Chatot was initally reported as a pure flying with its unveil. We all attributed it to just a corocoro mixup but now I wonder if them considering the birds to just be Pure Flying has been a longer-reaching thing. iirc one of Spaceworld birds was also pure flying? Either something they were toying with or they just put Flying as a place holder until later, in case they want to put anotehr type onto it I guess?
 
Apparently this image is proof that you could combine moves in Double Battles to form new moves? (Ember + Gust = Heat Wave) It's likely this concept was deemed too complicated to code and scrapped - the Pledge moves in Gen V are probably the first "realization" of this somehow.
Traces of that are still in the final game, and RS still has the unused function to combine the moves. (https://github.com/pret/pokeruby/blob/master/src/battle_util.c (ctrl+F combine)) The only defined one seems to be Ember + Gust = Heat Wave, and there's even a message for it.
From https://github.com/pret/pokeruby/blob/master/src/data/battle_strings_en.h
Code:
const u8 BattleText_WindHeatWave[] = _("The wind turned into a\nHEAT WAVE!");

Stats I could find that weren't placeholders. Highlights:
  • Blaziken had 95 speed, albeit with slightly lower 110 attack
  • Mightyena and Linoone were super horrible
  • Shedinja still had 1 HP, but its best stats were its defenses
  • Spinda had a real, though still poor stat spread (which is very disorienting to see its beta-looking stat spread in the "Final" column)
  • Pelipper had 85 base attack at the cost of its defense
  • Claydol had 90 base speed
  • Sableye was a fragile physical sweeper
  • The entire Aron line had much worse attack and defense
  • Lati@s were absurd with +10 in every stat compared to final

True. I trained my Battle Frontier mons in those places specifically. Except I went to the ununsed Alternate Cave for Speed (infinite Zubats!)

note that "plusle" evolves into "minun" - they have dummied out but increasing stats (all 40s become all 60s), plus and minus respectively, and a proper evolution into one another in the evolution diff. no clue wtf happened with this lol, very possible they were a totally different line that they worked over (hence abilities) but didn't change stats / evolution status of until later. please no mention of ball shaped tigers

I searched through levelup movepool differences as well. Most are either in some state of being unfinished (while having similar flavor), very similar to final but missing some moves (especially moves that are new to gen 3, which are largely missing entirely), or the Swablu line. I'll post the more relevant differences, but I'll ignore the ones that are near identical, unfinished, or lack moves entirely.

Treecko line: all of them have lick for some reason (simultaneously stellar mental image or suggestion that proto would be more of a traditional lizard (ex. with a tongue that flicks out of its mouth)). no leaf blade since no new moves mostly
Torchic line: a lot more birdy with no fighting type moves at all, no blaze kick for blaziken, but it does get sky attack
Mudkip line: unfinished but gets Dig by level
Nuzleaf: has Bide, which is mildly interesting, since that may suggest that it was comparatively more plant-y than final "anthro with leaf head"
Shedinja: has Destiny Bond, replaced by Grudge in final (rip)
Spinda: doesn't have Teeter Dance but does have Petal Dance (lol). Has Uproar (new move)
Pelipper: gains Hydro Pump in final. Has Stockpile / Swallow (new moves)
Sableye: gains Fake Out in final
Makuhita line: gains Fake Out in final. Mildly floored by this one since Fake Out is very low in the index number but literally nothing has it at this point, neither the sumo wrestlers that gave the technique its name nor the literal cats that are encompassed in its name.
Camerupt: already has Eruption, which is I think the highest index number move present on Pokemon
Azurill: gets Surf by level lol
Swablu line: seems to have gone through a pretty decent tone change. Initially had Cotton Spore, both Mist and Haze (White Mist / Black Mist in Japanese, respectively) learned simultaneously, Smog, and Drill Peck. Final has it learning Singing moves (Sing, Perish Song) as well as (mercifully for Altaria) Dragon Dance. It's pretty bizarre that this is the only line that changes this much.
Duskull line: lacks Will-o-wisp, which was very generously given to it in final
Illumise: randomly has Petal Dance

Lunatone learns Rage I guess?? And yeah in general these are heavily lacking in new Hoenn moves. Snatch, Torment, Knock Off, Uproar, Assist, Charge, Eruption, Ingrain, and Flatter are all of them I believe (though there may be some more on Pokemon who's movesets were already finalized). Highest indexed is Snatch at 289, and Hoenn's new moves go up to 354 in the final version.

テーブル・パターン決定条件(開発資料の説明)簡易説明
カード8枚のIDを全て足して、256で割った値が偶数(0を含む)ならテーブル1を使用、奇数ならテーブル2を使用チェック用カードIDは不明なので、実際は下記の組み合わせ例を参考にテーブルとパターンをチェックする
パターン6~10については、クリア前はそれぞれがパターン1~5のものに対応する点に注意
(パターン6~10は「10で割った余り+1」の後半にあたるが、クリア前のパターン「5で割った余り+1」だとパターン1~5に相当する)
クリア前:カード8枚のIDの下5ビットをすべてXORし、5で割った余り+1がテーブルのパターン番号になる
クリア後:カード8枚のIDの下5ビットをすべてXORし、10で割った余り+1がテーブルのパターン番号になる
The tables here indicate the reward obtained for completing that ''Trainer Hill'' according to 2 factors, the columns indicate ''Pattern'' (which I assume is difficulty, or maybe it was a labyrinth with varying shapes? thinking it could be like the Trick House), meanwhile the rows indicate time spent (less than 11 minutes 59 seconds is the best, more than 18 minutes is the worst).

What I don't get is there being two tables, I'll try to read the disclaimers at the bottom of the tables when I have more time to see if there's a clue. Perhaps it's simply a difference between Ruby and Sapphire given there's two tables and the rewards for the patterns 1-5 are the same.

EDIT: I can't understand it perfectly but the disclaimers do talk about how table and pattern are chosen. Seems like there's some calculation with the Trainer ID that decides whether it's table 1 or 2, and then another to pick the pattern. There's also something about the formula changing before and after ''completion''... hard to tell what that means without more context.

Trainer Hill had a bunch of different "labyrinths" for what you could scan in as an e-reader (the west simplified this greatly for the better) which would also determine the prizes. It was based on the order you scanned them in, and how many you scanned and I think there was a few extra modifications you could throw in.

It's kind of poorly documented in the west.
 
There are also a bunch of debug roms + playtester/lot check saves from various languages making up the bulk of the folders. Some of their nicknames are cute, but some really make you think. This one is ABCDEFG.bin from French FRLG.

This Emerald save (PokeEme\savedata\レコード交換チェック用\pme1.bin) beat the game in 4 hours. Swampert is EQ/Strength/Surf/Ice Beam @ Amulet Coin. Safari Zone Dodrio is in a lot of parties for some reason, and its only noteworthy move is Secret Power.

RS debug is pretty similar to the german one. The pmagb_us 1st final is slightly different in that it contains a menu option that turns all the text into numbers.

FRLG has some sleek menus and interesting options. Use R+A when loading a save to load with debug powers, like holding R to walk through walls at high speed.

The only Emerald one is in Japanese. There's a debug mode manual in emerald_20040722_jp\emerald\資料\eme-smc-jisaku\エメラルド自作資料一時保存(0708)\Dチーム自作資料\デバッグモード. The ingame debug menu is like RS, but nicer to look at and probably has more features. Somehow I got an egg with glitch moves and a 'menu' that just played the Superpower animation.

Im guessing the secret power dodrio present in most of the debug saves are for testing the secret base feature. Also interesting that blaziken's typing may have had a last minute change since the movepool is mostly made up of flying moves
