Fossil Images

The images of the fossil Aerodactyl are all the same pose as the Aerodactyl sprite for that game, except for FRLG, in which it takes the pose of the RSE sprite. Notable?--Gou 21:32, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Dream world

I just befriended a Aerodactyl in the Dream World in 'windswept sky' should it be noted it's catchable in the dream world? ChromeVoid42 18:48, 28 April 2011 (UTC)


In the Trivia section it mentions all the other pokemon that have no other evolutionary relatives, but herracross is not mentioned, and to my knowledge herracross does not evolve and nothing evolves into himColourHidden (talk) 01:15, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

Generation I Pokémon. Heracross is a Generation II Pokémon. --Abcboy (talk) 01:47, 6 November 2012 (UTC)


I am suprised that no on has jumped on this already, but this year a pterosaur was named after this Pokémon. The animal is called Aerodactylus scolopaciceps and was published in the online journal PLoS ONE by Vidovic and Martill. Surely this warrants mention in the article, perhaps in the trivia section.

Reference: Vidovic, S. U.; Martill, D. M. (2014). "Pterodactylus scolopaciceps Meyer, 1860 (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea) from the Upper Jurassic of Bavaria, Germany: The Problem of Cryptic Pterosaur Taxa in Early Ontogeny". PLoS ONE 9 (10). - unsigned comment from Tomozaurus (talkcontribs)

Mega Aerodactyl

Should it be mentioned that promotional materials, like the X/Y website, suggest that "some scientists" think Mega Aerodactyl is what Aerodactyl looked like before becoming a fossil and subsequently being revived?- unsigned comment from Me, Hurray! (talkcontribs)

It's already in the biology section.--ForceFire 03:44, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
