I would love to see more Fossil Pokemon returning. My case, I would like to see a spinosaurus, Shunosaurus, smilodon, let alone a good deal of prehistoric creatures that the pokemon will be based from.

    I know this might be strange but maybe one that comes from a fossilized plant

    We already have Lileep and Cradily, but what about a prehistoric and carnivorous flower that prefer dry land.

    I love dinosaurs and mesozoic era creatures. I collected fossils as a kid. But I feel the way they are implemented in Pokémon has become a little repetitive and has cheapened the concept.

    Reviving fossils (however that is supposed to work because fossils actually contain no organic material) has become so trivial that it starts to feel like a more inconvenient way of catching regular Pokémon than a novel process for unique or special ones.

    Their existence is especially comical given the entire contention of the gen IX games. Maybe that's why there weren't any new fossils, if you are going to make a plot about Pokémon from a different time threatening the ecology of the region.

    My case, I wouldn't mind seeing a fossil pokemon based on the Shunosaurus and the other based on a spinosaurus. I wouldn't mind seeing a complete Dunkleosteus fossil pokemon, a complete stegosaurus pokemon as well.

    I think they were very cool but I'd rather they take the Relicanth approach and make it a rare old Pokemon

    Dimetrodon, Troodon, and Sauroposeidon.

    How about prehistoric mammals like Ground sloth, Arsinotherium, Mammoth, Smilodon, and cave lions.

    Lots of cool suggestions here, and more than just the usual popular dinosaurs.

    I always wondered about fossil Pokémon: why are they part rock type?

    Were all Pokémon rock type in that era, or is it an unintended consequence of reviving a Pokémon from what is essentially a mineral deposit with no genetic material?

    Or are fossil Pokémon fake? Is the technology building an entirely new creature using the fossil as a base, which is preserved as the rock part? Are fossil Pokémon actually artificial Pokémon?

    To my knowledge the process is kept deliberately mysterious in all primary sources, and I suspect that Gamefreak doesn't really have an answer.

    "LOL, the scientists science the science out of the science rocks mined from science mines with their science machines.

    "It's science! Complicated stuff, bro. You wouldn't understand."
