Hey there! It’s almost the end of the year, but we’re still going! Also – Merry Christmas! As my present for you all, here are my ten favourite Fossil Pokemon, unearthed!
I think Shieldon is so cute, and it’s a great for your Steel-type coverage if you decided not to choose Piplup as your starter. And Bastiodon…nice!
Archen is a colourful wonder, even if its Ability is a bit shit, if you ask me. Plus I love the way Archeops flaps its wings in its 3D model…
Anorith is actually really fun to look at, but drastically changes when it becomes an Armaldo. It’s also got a strangely high Attack stat for an unevolved Pokemon. It’s shiny is lush, too!
I love this little Skittle! It’s not my fossil of choice when it comes to Kanto, but I still appreciate its worth. I love the shiny form, which is the reason why I call it a Skittle! Plus Kabutops looks stunning!
Tyrunt is a great choice of fossil in Kalos (and so is Amaura), considering its dual type of Rock/Dragon (although that does give it six weaknesses). But it looks cool, especially when evolved into Tyrantrum! I mean, it’s a T-Rex!
I’ll explain why this is so high on this list. Combining its Strong Jaw Ability (increases the power of biting moves by 50%) with Fishious Rend (a biting move with 85 base power, doubled if the user is faster), a Choice Band (increases the Pokemon’s Attack by 50%). Now also take into account STAB and possible rain. This combination can knock out Pokemon that resist Water-type moves.
I rest my case.
Even though it isn’t as useful as its counterpart Dracovish, Arctozolt is one I love for aesthetic, and also because we get an Electric/Ice-type that isn’t Rotom Frost. I love that it shivers and has the same snot-drop like Cubchoo!
I hated Aerodactyl throughout my first year playing Pokemon GO. I could not find one anywhere until the first Adventure Week event, where I had to run for one. I still actually really like it though.
Amaura is super-adorable and came in clutch in my Y playthrough. Its shiny is so lovely too, changing to white. I mean it’s a fricking diplodocus!
Lord Helix jokes aside, I love the design of Omanyte, especially with its bug-eyes peeping out and its Zoidberg-style tentacles looking like facial hair.
