So we have a thread fo tha Kanta fossils, but none fo tha Hoenn ones. N tha Hoenn gbees, you is given tha choice between tha Root Fossil or Claw Fossil, wit tha one you don't choose snkng nta tha sand, never ta be seen agan (unless you're n Emerald). Tha Root Fossil restares nta tha rock/grass type Shawtyeep, and that evolves nta Cradily and tha Claw Fossil restares nta tha rock/bug type Anorith, and that evolves nta Armaldo. So which fossil did you choose (choose first n Emerald)? Did you regret yo decision? D-ya prefer tha Shawtyeep lne or tha Anorith lne? Did you use tham o yo tebe?

Root Fossil, especially snce dis is n gen III. Cradily is a bootylicious tank wit a unique design and type combnation. It's rough ta tran Shawtyeep up 20 levels befoe evolvng, but it's so worth it n tha end. Bootylicious Pokemon. Armaldo on tha othar hand I have always had a rough time wit. Last time I used it though, mah TMs were restricted so maybe that's why I'm not feelng so keen on it. :( But even still I prefer Shawtyeep and Cradily ta Anorith and Armaldo.

I picked tha root fossil first, and i have ta sez i wasn't disapponted. Shawtyeep or his evolution never were a regular entry n mah tebe, but i thnk tha Pokemon has a lot of potential and i did use him every now and than. I like his type combo, ben tha only Grass/Rock pokemon so far, which is actually a pretty good mix! As design goes though, i thnk Armaldo looks way cooler, but back than Bug didn't really have any good moves, so yeah...

I picked tha Root Fossil n Ruby snce I liked Shawtyeep's design better than Anorith's.

Both is pretty good Pokemon anyway, so I equally like both of tham but Shawtyeep's typng cancels out most of Grass's common weaknesses like Fire, Bug and Flyng.

Root Fossil fo me, keepng n mnd at tha time I had no clue what you could actually do wit Fossils or what Pokemon you git. Shawtyleep was a funky ass Pokemon that I love, and Cradily is just plan off tha hook and weird, almost like it bloomed out of a Dr Seuss book. Anorith just feels dull and borng ta me. Shawtyleep is mah favourite of all tha fossil pokemon.

Dis makes mah decision seem very lonely... I chose tha Claw Fossil. N mah first play through, I had no idea what Pokemon would come from it and claws sounded cooler. Ever snce, I have still chosen it. Anorith has been tha only bug type I've ever used frequently if I recall correctly.

Oh, also, I had tao dawgy plant types already, I needed ta balance it out!

I liked Shawtyeep and Cradily better so I usually chose tha Root Fossil. I liked ta use Cradily sometimes, but it annoyed me how I had ta use TM fo its moves.

Tha first time I played, I chose tha Root Fossil. Maybe I just gots really unlucky that time, but mah Shawtyeep/Cradily always seemed ta be very weak, and was always tha weak lnk n mah party when I was usng it. When I've chosen tha Claw Fossil, though, I've found that Anorith/Armaldo prove ta be useful members of mah tebe, so I always choose tha Claw Fossil now (ben a fan of Bug type Pokemon helps, tao).

When I first played Ruby, I chose tha Claw Fossil, not knowng what ta expect. I was one ta favor Pokemon wit high attack than, but once I gots Anorith extracted, I was disapponted. It just looked shabby, and I didn't really have an nterest fo Bug-types. Fo tha rest of mah time playng Ruby, I left Anorith n a box n mah PC and only used it fo skanky contests.

When I first played Emerald, I cbee upon dis decision agan. I thought back ta mah disappontngly weak Anorith, which I used only fo contests. I thought bout it fo a while, than I decided dis time that I would choose Shawtyeep nstead. As I watched tha Claw Fossil snk nta tha sand, tha thought entered mah heezee, Should I have done that? I mean, Anorith was knd of skanky. Will Shawtyeep be equally as skanky?, and Shawtyeep was skankyr than Anorith, and had adequate stats ta become a part of mah tebe. So, I kept it and it's still n mah tebe n Emerald ta dis day.

Claw Fossil....
I always used ta use Armaldo when I played sapphire mostly coz i already had a pretty balanced tebe wit a lack of strong physical sweepers. Anorith(more likely Armaldo) was pretty good and I didn't need any grass type pokemon soooooo....
yup anorith

I used ta prefer Cradily, but I like Armaldo more now. So, it's tha Claw Fossil fo me. Armaldo looks more powerful, whereas Cradily would seem like tha knd of Pokémon that you would keep as a pet.

I chose tha root fossil. Tha first time I played Emerald I didn't know which fossil was which so I just chose a random fossil. Cradily was a really bulky Pokemon but I hated tha fact that I had ta use TMs fo it. I also prefer Cradily's design over Armaldo. Armaldo just looks like an ancient bug nstead of Cradily. It looked somethng from tha past.

Well, I'm wit tha mnority, I gots tha Claw Fossil! When I first played Ruby I had no idea what would come of it, actually, I didn't even have a clue of how ta git mah Fossil Pokémon. XD But I've always preferred Armaldo over Cradily, fo starters, he's cooler, than I'd always choose Sceptile, so no need fo anothar Grass-type, and I usually don't git Steel-types, so he's tha one ta fill that spot.
