Does anyone think that there should be more extinct pokemon? If pokemon are based off of animals, and there are so many extinct animals, then why shouldn't there be more? If they do come out with a 5th gen. then I think they should focus alot on extinct animals and make pokemon based off of them.

I think there aren't many because in real life, considering the number of animal species we have on record, only a small fraction of those are extinct. Although we know of a few thousand extinct species, we know of millions of living speces. And so there are hundreds of pokemon but only a handful of fossil pokemon.

I wouldn't mind seeing many more extinct fossil pokemon. Like dinosaurs, birds, reptiles etc.

The fossil pokemon are interesting, but I don't think they should -focus- on them. :\

not in Diamond and Pearl it isn't, you walk in, drop the fossil off and walk out and then come back and have that pkmn

Fossil Pokemon are okay, especially Cradily, I'm happy they did atleast 3 episodes of fossil pkmn

Um, actually over 70% of the species that have ever been on Earth are extincted. /:

I really would like to see some more fossil pokemon but good ones, like the 1st gen fossils.

Wait. Who says that a Pokemon has to be a fossil to be based on an extinct Pokemon? *motions to Piloswine/Mamoswine and Doduo/Dodrio*

Other than that, if you mean that the new batch of Pokemon should be mostly fossils, then that presents the problem of having a region where there's nothing in it except rocks and temples, which is kinda what Rosefrost already touched upon.

I personally would like to see a pokemon that resembles the Velocirpator <3
and yeah... the percentages vary, but most evolutionist scientist consider 70%-99% of all species to have existed on earth to be extinct

I would like to see a woolly mammoth Pomemon. It would be the coolest Pokemon evah. Other than that, making a lot of Pokemon based on extintct animals would be very boring.

It appears to be a splice of a boar and mammoth, miss smarty pants. That means it's not the true tank that is the woolly mammoth. Also it's 'you', not 'ya''- which isn't a word at all.

my god, mr. smartypants. >(

anyways, i think sum1 said earlier that tyrantar is a tyranisaurus rex pokemon. not really, well, sorta... there should be one that is obvoiusly a tyranasaurus.

You spelled Tyranitar and Tyrannosauras wrong. Anyway, Tyranitar is actaully based on a Tarasque (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarasque). Bulbapedia is your friend.

Tyrannosaurus.

Also, personally, I believe that Mamoswine and Piloswine still count in terms of being woolly mammoths, as there's an apparent amount of influence of the animal in their designs -- enough to make it mammoth like. (This goes especially for Mamoswine, which has the shape of a woolly mammoth anyway, lax the trunk.) So, to say that the woolly mammoth never appeared in the games is a bit of a half-lie, no pun intended. On the other hand, it's also a half-truth, so it could go either way, depending on whether or not you're satisfied with just a half-woolly.

On a separate note, I'd like to see a saber-toothed tiger myself. Or a Tasmanian one.

I've always hesitated about calling Raikou a cat for the simple reason that there still seems to be a controversy over whether or not the GSC trio are cats or dogs. (The argument lies in the idea that some people assert that Suicune is a wolf, that Entei looks incredibly like a canine, and that it wouldn't make sense for Raikou to not fit in this pattern. GameFAQs insists they're gerbils, but that's GameFAQs for you. And yes, I'm aware of what Bulbapedia says.) So, on that note, I just go with the "it's a raiju" explanation and avoid the term "cat" altogether. Piss-poor reason, I know, but still. =/

And further more, I don't see why you are criticizing her, this is a topic about fossil pokemon, not a topic where you worry and criticize about other peoples grammar and spelling.:\

Me2UJus4Free, you are a living example of Skitt's law. Well done. Thank you Jax.

Fossil Pokemon would be great if the the fossil was given early in the game and receive a mail or phonecall when they are resurrected. I have the habbit of leaving that part to the end of the game and having to walk around mindlessly training to wait for it.

The only reason GameFaq folk call them gerbils is because they hope somebody unfamiliar with the customs will speak out. This gives them an opportunity for them to be trolled by regulars. I speak from experience.

I'm female, actually. If you just look at infomation to your left, you would know.
I can be something retentive too! Not everybody uses the same theme as you. If you ever changed your theme, you would know.

>< Raikou DOES look like a tiger, I agree. But, I don't see the sabor teeth... not really ;<

Entei has always reminded me of a Lion. He really has no dog traits, unless you count the big furry paws. =\

Suicune is the outcast, if any... but, that's just completely my opinion! ._. don't jump on me~ D=

~~~

on topic:

The idea is very awesome! But Extinct pokemon could be more than just dinosaurs or birds, since there are alot of animals going endangered these days.

They could make a huge Sea Cow thingy (different from Walrein).
A Dodo bird (even though there's doduo.) would be quite clevar.

Ooo, or they could make them more mythically (not a word!) extinct.
Like Bigfoot.
or the Lochness-monster! 0w0 Remember on "Bill and the Lighthouse" epi, where that huge dinosaur/sea monster looking thingy rose out of the ocean? ^^; they could make that~!


e-hem, that's all I've got. Thanks for letting me ... almost rant.

I was just talking about those that have been discovered, not the total number of extinct species. Considering the number of species which have been extinct, we have only discovered a tiny fraction.

If you're talking about the total number of species the world has ever seen, the number alive today is far less than 30%.. closer to 2%.

Apologies for the fangirl moment, but...

I wish they would so people would stop ragging on my favorite character for "not being able to identify a Dragonite" in dense fog in the dead of night. At least then, he'd have more of an excuse. ;_;

Also, yes, I'll admit that Raikou looks more like a tiger than a dog, which is why I really don't know what the people in the "the GSC trio are a pack of dogs" camp make of Raikou. Either way, I'll also agree about not being able to see the resemblance between saber-toothed tigers and Raikou either way. I mean, sure, it has huge fangs, but is it at all odd that the other two legendary beasts would, if you were part of the "the GSC trio are three cats" camp, be based on large cats (assuming that Suicune is a cheetah, although yeah, it's always looked canine to me too) that still exist while Raikou is the only extinct one? Or maybe I'm just trying too hard to maintain patterns.

D= omtotalgosh... I actaully really truly forgot that it WAS Dragonite. >-< *bangsselfonhead* Well, there goes my theory out the window~ ^^;

Anyways, they Could make more dinosaur-ish looking creatures. Like a long-neck (Tropius =x) or a rare alligator (Totodile ._.)
Bleh, but they Could look different. I think they just need more diverse species of Pokemon. Like more types of dogs and such.

As for Suicune. I've never Ever thought of it being like a Cheetah. Which it Does look a bit similar, except for the elongated snout. But it's fast, and roars. See, that's why I sway more to the Cat side, because all the "Legendary Dogs" roar... D;

I mean, doesn't that sound like Mew? And Mew can transform into any Pokemon it wants, and any size. (Like in "Lucario and the mystery of Mew") Um, yeah, were was I? (Sorry about the ranting. 6_6) Anyways, that's what I think.;)

I really like the fossil pokemon. I think they should definitely make more extinct pokes if they make more in the 5th generation anyway.

But I think they've done quite enough already, I think they should stop making new pokemon.
