A few days ago, leaks started to surface regarding some of the older Pokemon games. We were able to get a look at tons of beta designs from the Gen 2 era, which was followed by even more earlier sprites and other assets. Apparently, this Pokemon content was just a larger portion of an overall huge Nintendo leak. Source code for older systems, Spaceworld ’99 demos, and more have started to appear online.
