Old Amber

In the Generation I and III games it can be obtained in a back room of the [[Pewter Museum of Science]]. The [[HM]] for {{m|Cut}} is needed to get there, as a bush blocks it off. A [[key item]], it is given to the {{player|main character}} by one of the scientists working there. If brought to the laboratory on [[Cinnabar Island]], the Old Amber can be regenerated into an {{p|Aerodactyl}}.
In the {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}} games it can be found by mining in [[the Underground]] after obtaining the National Pokédex. If brought to the Mining Museum in [[Oreburgh City]], the Old Amber can be regenerated into an {{p|Aerodactyl}}. In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}} Old Amber can be found randomly by {{m|Rock Smash|smashing rocks}} at the Ruins of Alph, and revived at the [[Pewter Museum of Science]]. It is not a key item in these games.
The Old Amber is different than the other fossils, being a type of fossilized substance rather than a fossil named by its appearance (However, the Aerodactyl skeleton in Pewter City Museum implies that it does have its own fossilized remains). It is possibly inspired by {{wp|Jurassic Park}}, in which genetic engineers extracted dinosaur DNA from mosquitoes trapped in amber and used it to recreate dinosaurs.
