It still has arms, they're just tucked in against its body, circled in red below:

According to various pokedex entries though, these are referred to as poison barbs, which it can extend if threatened. Its pokedex entry from HG is the most recent one to refer to this, however its most clearly shown on an early Ken Sugimori card.

Thank god they did hold them off. Scizor and Tyranitar are all kinds of awesome.

I prefer the original Girafarig as well, very cool. I also prefer Chikorita, I mean, who doesn't want a little green blob with a leaf on its head. It's not very starterish though... It reminds me a lot of Gulpin. Maybe they didn't completely scrap it after all..? The chunky Staryu is pretty cool too, it looks a bit more sturdy than the current one. Lapras looks a lot more 'Nessie'-ish too
