I had previously added some time ago that Aerodactyl's method of revival is likely based on Jurassic Park. For those unfamiliar with the series, the scientists clone dinosaurs by retrieving dinosaur blood from mosquitos preserved in amber. Aerodactyl's method of revival differs from Kabuto and Omanyte, for no reason at all if this reference is not deliberate, and the artwork for the Old Amber in Gen I depicts an insect preserved in it.
The reason the reference was removed was because it was deemed speculation, and the staff member who removed it claimed the Wiki attempts to avoid references to copyrighted works. I find both reasons simply do not hold up to common editing practices, especially since a lot of Origin sections are rife with speculation. Interesting speculation, but speculation. In the meantime we have references to Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee/Japanese martial artists, famous psychics with the Abra line, Ghengis Khan, and the Loch Ness Monster, to say nothing of how many myths, religions and legends Pokemon takes influences from. I don't think it's that much of a stretch to connect the dots and deduce the design reason why Aerodactyl is revived by DNA preserved in amber instead of from a fossil.
