Indian elephants are canon
Nope. Got changed to Copperajah.
Having dinosaur Pokémon in the game would've made too much sense. And remember that Game Freak doesn't want to get too greedy with gameplay elements. Apparently fossil Pokémon is one of the gameplay elements that Game Freak doesn't want to get "too greedy" with.
Digimon did it better
Poison Point/Rough Skin
Silesaurus Opolensis was often mistaken for a Pokemon by early fossil hunters, though no one quite knows why
DNA testing suggests S. Opolensis had the capability to crossbreed with ancient pokemon
That stat spread is atrocious.
They're extinct for a reason anon
What was the stat spread on the meteor that killed them?
1 hp 1000 in every other stat
If only someone had set rocks the whole extinction thing could’ve been avoided
>let's give fossil pokémon intentionally bad stats
>archeops has good stats (rare for a rock-type pokémon) but was given defeatist because fossil pokémon are not allowed to have anything going for them
It's.not that they went extinct. It's because Game Freak likes to fuck over Rock-type Pokémon for no reason at all.
Also if we're going with the "bad stats is cause of extinction" route then explain Ledian. And would Garchomp be extinct due to being too successful of a predatory species?

Then I'm not going to agree with the "they went extinct for a reason" headcanon.
Still wouldn't even if it was confirmed true because I'd pass that off as "we like fucking over Pokémon of certain typings".
I don't need you to agree to me being a silly guy. I will continue to do so regardless of your agreement.
Aerodactyl is literally referred to as a dinosaur in the Pokedex.
Terms like dinosaur and dog are used to refer to Pokemon, the real life versions don't exist.
Not "dinosaur animals"
But straight up dinosaurs are real
It's not Game Freak's fault you cunts still haven't gotten the memo this shit's BASED off the real world, not a mirror of the real world. that's why there's cat pokémon, dog and puppy pokémon, fox pokémon and so on. Well "terrible lizard" pokémon exist too - fans just call them foissilmons though, because they like huffing their own farts and disregarding the canon by-and-large.
>Aerodactyl = Dinosaur
>Dinosaurs is a term exclusively used to describe a type of land creature
This is just splitting hairs and you know it. When people say "dinosaurs" they are usually also including things like pterosaurs, even if that's not precise language.
Don't give it any thought, Gamefreak clearly didn't give that thing's ugly design any thought either.
Dinosaur could just be a classification of pokemon as it is for animals in our world.
