In {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, 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 theseGeneration gamesIV.
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.
