I know this is AtariAge, but the prototype forum is under the general gaming heading, & this has me excited. :)

Tempted to break my no ROMs rule...

Quick & Dirty comparison between the sprites recovered from  the demo & some old fan art by someone who played it back in the day. The 1st two pics are aparently fan art; the others are in-game characters. Also includes the Pokemon's evolved forms & behind views:

Looks like a fire mouse? Like a Pikachu Flambe?  If my Japanese skill doesn't fail, Hochu might work.

That was the assumption for years. Looks like he was supposed to be a fire bear,  ホノオグマ honooguma 炎 (honoo) fire, 熊 (kuma) bear.
