Some data exists in the game files for a location called Kalakka Desert, which does not appear in the actual game. The desert's map file,
desert_m, does not exist, but it does have a description associated with it:
"The temperature here swings far between day and night, and an arid wind blows."
An unused music track,
SEQ_FIELD01, is supposed to play on this map.
An unused area of the Sekra Range also appears in the game files. It's map file is
menu/pokemon_filename.dat, which is used to assign Pokémon Browser sprites, contains references to all 28 of Unown's forms and all four of Castform's. Neither Pokémon appears in the actual game, and the only one of these referenced sprites that actually exists is that of Unown's exclamation mark form.
yakumono/yakumono_csv.dat, which is used for targets and other objects, references the non-existent file
pokemon/iwark. "Iwark" is the Japanese name of Onix. It is therefore possible that Onix may have at some point been intended to appear in the game as an obstacle or a boss, much like its evolution, Steelix, does.
The game has three unused music tracks. The first,
SEQ_FIELD01, was intended to play in the unused Kalakka Desert location. The second,
SEQ_JUNGLETOWN, is a more upbeat rendition of Olive Jungle's background music, and, based on its name, may have been the original background music for Summerland. The third,
SEQ_GAMEOVER, would later be used in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia as the music that plays when the Capture Styler breaks.
