Game InformationTypes: Undead / Stone
A monster that resembles some kind of fossil. Much of its body is encased in stone, but it can somehow propel itself with clunky little jumps and snap out with its fanged skull.
Design NotesThis is another one that I made the sprite of a while ago, which I've drawn now for the sake of adding it and its evolution.
It's based on an ammonite fossil combined with a generic dinosaur skull to create a sort of snake thing. I wonder how many teenagers would point out to me that ammonites were actually cephalopods though, as if I don't know.
I was really into dinosaurs when I was little and even wanted to be a palaeontologist... so I like the idea of adding monsters based on actual fossils. I always liked the fossil Pokemon, but this is a bit more direct about the whole 'fossil' thing.
No, you don't acquire this by reviving it from a fossil item. They live in the wild.
