when you go to Route 111, you'll notice a desert that you'll need googles to pass on through. In that desert, you'll eventually see two fossils in the sand: The Claw Fossil, and the Root Fossil. You have a choice between one or the other, since the one you don't pick will sink in the sand.

The root fossil can be restored into a pokemon called Lilleep who is a Grass & Rock type pokemon who evolves into a Cradily. It's a pretty defensive pokemon that packs really great moves like Recover, and you can add stuff like Double team or Toxic for it.

Anorith here can get restored from a Claw Fossil, and it's a Rock and Bug type pokemon who evolves into Armaldo. The family is more based on attack, so packing Swords Dance is a good idea as it can pack moves like Metal Claw and Rock Blast.

Which fossil do you remember picking up? Which Fossil pokemon is your preferred pokemon?

    The one I picked turned into Lileep, but I like Anorith more.

      I can't recall myself ever using any of those Pokemon, doesn't take away the fact I kind of like how Lileep is (and with that, Cradily (???) too).

        I like the Lileep line more than the Anorith line. So the Root Fossil wins for me.

          I never used armaldo in a gameplay ever to be honest but I always had a fascination with it. Something about it just looks intriguing

          I used Lileep, so I obviously picked the Root Fossil. It was probably the cuter-looking one of the two to me at the time.

          I don't remember what I originally picked! Since what I picked definitely was not ever in my team.

          But if I had the choice right now, it would most likely be that root fossil. Maybe if I ever get that far again in my copy of sapphire here I'll pick that.

          Claw Fosil, always! I prefer Armaldo way more, so Anorith for me.

          I probably picked Claw from what I remember. I've never managed to get round to using either of them though, I just don't like them - I kinda like the design of Lileep / Cradily but the most stall-oriented Pokémon I have the patience to play with is my Curse Munchlax in Gen IV, or Bulbasaur (because Sleep / Poison + leech seed is so satisfying). Armaldo is just not a great design.

          I chose the root fossil because I prefer Cradily. I used to use a stall defensive strategy with it in DP.

          Actually I... don't think I've ever used either. I know Cradily is pretty cool - my friend used it in competitive battles to great effect - so I'll give it a try next time I replay a Hoenn game. Not really sure why, but I've always forgotten about the Hoenn fossils and never got the chance to try them out!

          I do generally prefer Lileep to Anorith, but Armaldo is cooler than Cradilly imo so I always have a hard time choosing.

            I never used any of them but I know I picked the claw fossil because Anoeith and its evolution seemed better to me.

              I'd go with the Root Fossil because Cradily is a NASTY TANK pokemon in any game really. Teach it toxic and some restoration moves and it will drop anything the E4 has to dish out.

              I've never really been a big fan of Cradily, so I've always went with Armaldo.

                I wasn't really a big fan of either :( Years ago I made NU Doubles into a temporary thing. I used Cradily in my rain team and it was sorted. From then on I couldn't go with Anorith anymore - not when Cradily was so cool.

                Plus Anorith is kinda ugly. I did always pick Anorith as a kid for some reason though...
