In Mt. Moon you were given a choice between obtaining Kabuto or Omanyte. Which did you end up choosing and why?

    Since taking decisions isn't my strong suit, I wish to
    propose to all those with my very same issue a
    possible solution : the coin flip!
    Only problem : deciding what goes for heads and what for tails...

      I didn't know what these fossils were until I grew up and figured it out. I chose the helix fossil however out of random!

        I'm actually kindove surprised no one has said Helix Fossil yet because of the Twitch Plays Pokemon fiasco from a few years ago haha.

        Dome Fossil because Kabutops is cool

        Unless I want Omastar for a challenge run or something

        Not a fan of Omastar's Speed, plus I think back in the days of Gen I (I could be wrong), critical hits were mostly determined by how fast your Pokemon were compared to your opponent's, so Kabutops was the better choice for me.

        I always chose the Helix fossil because I preferred the bulkier defences of Omastar, and it's also blue.

        Also Pray Helix

          They're both Rock/Water types. Omanyte is a bit sturdier in terms of Defense(but that speed...) while Kabuto is arguably faster and has a sick evolution form. The dealbreaker is that Kabuto learns/knows the Slash attack, a pretty powerful attack that also has a very high chance to critically hit. It also learns a Grass Type move in Absorb which makes it a bit unique in that regard. Neither of them can learn Rock Type moves... which begs the question why they're Rock Types in the first place.

            I keep accidentally picking Helix instead of Dome because I keep forgetting which one belongs to Kabuto. I prefer Kabuto, but the name Helix Fossil sounds so nice so Omanyte takes that one.

            (Praise Helix)

                When I first played Red I picked Helix fossil since it sounded cooler, however I had no idea which one it was, I knew of Kabuto and Omastar, and I wanted Kabutops, just because I thought he looked badass

                Easily Helix! The Lord is always #1 of Kanto :) Plus Omanyte is kind of a lot cooler than Kabuto and his evolution. They seem creepy tbh.
