A fossil is an item that can be found in certain caves and dug up in the Underground. Fossils can then be resurrected into the Pokémon it is a fossil of. Each Generation has its own set of fossils consisting of at least two stage-two evolutionary families with Generation II being the exception.

In order to resurrect the fossil into a Pokémon, you'll need to visit a building, usually a museum.


  • Generation I and VIII are the only Generations to have more than two fossils.
  • Generation II and VII are the only Generations without fossils.
