[[File:Generation I prototype English names.jpg|right|thumb|Unidentified poster showing early names for {{cat|Generation I Pokémon}}]]
During the promotional period that preceded the English release of both the {{pkmn|anime}} and Pokémon Red and Blue, a large amount of {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} were shown with different names from those they had in the final releases. Some of these names were similar to their final names, but some were quite close to their Japanese names, and others were completely different from any current Pokémon name. Another thing worth noting is that this set of names is limited to 7 characters per name while the finished version has considerably more. This suggests that maybe the names were a list based on a version from before the final release.
