In the anime

A Fossilized Drake in the anime

A Fossilized Drake appeared in A Pinch of This, a Pinch of That!, where Ash, Goh, and Chloe helped Cara Liss and Bray Zenn to dig it up in the Wild Area. It was later combined with a Fossilized Fish and restored into a Dracovish.

In the anime, the appearances of Fossilized Fish and Drake are swapped, making them match the Pokémon they are supposed to restore.


  • In Pokémon Sword and Shield, the Fossilized Fish and Fossilized Drake appear to have mistakenly swapped sprites. The Fossilized Drake offers the "Draco-" body for Dracozolt and Dracovish but visually looks like the head provided by the Fossilized Fish. In the anime, their appearances are the opposite of their game sprites.
  • The Pokémon revived from the Fossilized Drake have 10 fewer points in their Special Attack and Special Defense stats, and 20 extra points in Speed, compared to their counterparts revived from the Fossilized Dino.
