More prototype Pokemon!
[link]

This is "Kokana" (about 1/3 of the way down that page) and its two known evolutions, which most likely ended up getting replaced by the Weedle family in the final game.

Maybe it's just me, but with the handlebar moustache, boxing gloves and what looks, to me, like a fancy shirt collar... don't they totally have a "Victorian-era gentleman boxer" vibe to them? XD That's what I went with in my versions, because that's seriously one of the most awesome things you could base a Pokemon on.

Looking at the pre-release sprites on the page you linked to, Kokana was definitely based on the Wigglers from the Mario games.  Just look at it--caterpillar with that "bunch of circles for body segments" design and big ol' nose (also seen in Weedle), with a flower(?) on its head and those cheek blush marks? Definitely a nod toward the Wigglers in Super Mario World.

And based on those giant fists on the fully-evolved one, I'm guessing this was going to be Bug/Fighting.

(It also looks a bit like the beta Ledyba further down the page... which is kind of sad because it means we probably won't ever see these guys in an official game--Kokana turned into Weedle, the fully evolved form probably turned into Ledyba/Ledian, and I guess the middle stage was sort of rolled into Kakuna or just disappeared.)

Seeing these guys drawn in full really makes me wish these guys could've made it into the final game. Would've have definitely been some of my favourite gen 1 monsters.

I guess they were kind of revived as Kricketot and Kricketune providing us with the big nosed moustachioed bug niche, but still....
