Aerodactyl was a very robust flying reptile from an era long since passed. Its first fossils were discovered more than a century ago by Charles Birch and Edward Oak; its skull&wing were well preserved in fossilized amber. In the advent of the age of high tech that lead to the creation of Pokeballs, science discovered the ability to reconstruct fossils as living beings. It’d been long assumed that Aerodactyl caught Pokemon in its jaws&took ‘em to the ground to rip ‘em apart; however, it’s discovered it only used it to engulf small prey&used its barbed tongue to pull Pokemon down its throat. Science was also surprised Aerodactyl was not, as displayed in outdated paleoart, brown but purple&furry. Science didn’t see that one coming… Archen was a more recently discovered prehistoric Pokemon. It’s the juvenile stage of the larger Archeops, which laid large clutches of eggs, sometimes yielding as many as fifteen babies. As pictured here, it’s a real treat for a hungry Aerodactyl. Cranidos was an infant Rampardos; once revived, it’s discovered that both the adult&juvenile stages are very slow. In fact, it’s not uncommon to see a Cranidos easily keeping pace with a Rampardos. What they lacked in speed, they made up for in power. The Cranidos here is much more content to trundle off than deal with that big purple son of a bitch. For a more inside look, click here.
