So basically a discussion for ancient mons. Which ones are your favourite? Thoughts on the leaked gen8 fossils? Thoughts on individual lines if you have? Also plan to make a best fossil mon poll in the polls subforum, but I would like to wait for gen8 to come out first.

feel free to comment on the gen 8 fossil 'mons as much as you'd like in this thread but out of respect for those who haven't seen the leaks yet/want to avoid spoilers, it's preferable that you keep those particular comments in spoilers as Bahamut did. something to keep in mind.

but anyway! i like fossil 'mons, but they've been slipping my mind more and more every generation. i think it's because i haven't really found a pair of fossil 'mons that i've really liked since hoenn, which is a huge bummer. :\ i really liked armaldo and cradily and nothing ever really came close to resonating with me as much as they did. as much as i liked gen 4, bastiodon and rampardos just... didn't click. i didn't like their designs at all. carracosta is ok and while i liked archeops at first, over time it became meh and i didn't feel as strongly about it, anymore.

still waiting for that moment when a generation introduces fossil pokemon that truly wow me but i haven't felt it yet.

I am quite fond of all of the fossil pokemon, I find that they have some of the most interesting and unique designs. However, they are unfortunately overlooked at times.

I wish they would get more variety instead of all being Rock types.
I agree with this. I think if the fossil pokemon would be more useful and perhaps would appeal more if they weren't all rock types. Just because fossils are buried in bedrock does not necessarily mean that fossil pokemon must be rock types themselves.

As for my favourites, I love Amaura and Aurorus! Lileep and Cradilly are lovely as well.

I love Cradily the most. I wish they would get more variety instead of all being Rock types.
I always thought the dual Rock-type action was because they originated as a fossil. There was a game theory or something I think on the internet about the ancient Pokemon's original second-typing (or lack-there-of) being lost (or gained) in the reanimation process. It's a cool gimmick if you think of it like that, I guess.

Like, for example, I could totally see Armaldo (my fav of the fossils) being a Bug/Water type because of the creature it's based on irl.

While it makes sense that all fossils are rocks, it my opinion breaking away from logic would be better here for the sake of having variety.

My favourite fossil pokemon is Armaldo, but I do really like all the fossil pokemon. Although I am not the biggest fan of the new gen 8 ones.
