Oakley's Aerodactyl

Oakley's Aerodactyl in the anime.

Aerodactyl made its anime debut in Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon where it took Ash Ketchum away.

A large, fossilized Aerodactyl was resurrected with the power of Soul Dew by Annie and Oakley along with a large Kabutops in Pokémon Heroes, using Hyper Beam to attack Ash and Latias.

Trivia

  • It is the only fossilized Pokémon that does not have any evolutions.
  • Aerodactyl is the only Rock-type Generation 1 Pokémon that doesn't take 4 times the amount of damage from a Grass-type attack.
  • According to the Official Pokémon X and Y website, researchers believe Mega Aerodactyl may be the true form of Aerodactyl.
  • Aerodactyl and Vileplume had the same cry up until Generation VI.
  • Aerodactyl is the only Fossil Pokémon with a Mega Evolution and the only Fossil Pokémon without a normal Evolution.
  • It is the only Generation I Fossil Pokémon that isn't part Water-type.
  • A genus of pterosaurs was named Aerodactylus after this Pokémon.
  • Aerodactyl's English name has been criticized for being redundant as pterosaurs were already able to fly.
  • Unlike real pterosaursc Aerodactyl has bat-like wings and can completely bend its limbs.
  • It is the only fossil Pokémon that is restored from a sample of DNA in a different source rather than the actual fossil.

Origin

Aerodactyl is based on a pterosaur with some features of dragons.

Name origin

Aerodactyl is a portmanteau if "aero", meaning air, and "pterodactyl".
