'''Archeops''' ([[List of Japanese Pokémon names|Japanese]]: '''アーケオス''' ''Archeos'') is a dual-type {{2t|Rock|Flying}} [[Fossil]] {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} introduced in [[Generation V]].
It [[Evolution|evolves]] from {{p|Archen}} starting at [[level]] 37, after it is revived from a [[Cover and Plume Fossils|Plume Fossil]].
Archeops is a large, flying creature that bears similarities to a dinosaur. Its featherless, scaly head is red with a green stripe running along the top. Its mouth is filled with sharp teeth. Its eyes are white with black pupils and no irises. Its body is covered with frayed-looking, yellowishyellow feathers withand blue feathers designed for flight on its arms and legs enabling all four of its limbs to act as wings. All of these "wings" bear sharp claws. It has a ring of smaller green feathers on the ankles. Its tail is completely red and featherless except for a fan of blue feathers at the end, and as with the ''{{wp|Archaeopterygiformes}}'', it has fully-movable vertebrae in its tail instead of a {{wp|pygostyle}}. Its plumage is very delicate.
It is capable of flying, but is more adept at running. It can outrun even an automobile. It has the intelligence to work with its partners in order to catch prey. Archeops is extinct, but can be revived via fossils. Archeops is omnivorous, along with hunting for prey, it has been seen eating fruit [[BW036|in the anime]].

Archeops appears to draw inspiration from the ''{{wp|Microraptor}}'', a small, carnivorous dinosaur known for having wings on all four limbs, as well as ''{{wp|Archaeopteryx}}'', believed by scientists to be the earliest of all birds,; this is also referenced by its species as the "First Bird" Pokémon. It may also be based on the {{wp|Feathered Serpent}}s of ancient {{wp|Mesoamerica}}n mythologies, as well as {{wp|European dragon}}s in general.
====Name origin====
Archeops and Archeos couldmay be derived from ''Archaeopteryx''. Itand isthe possible they may also take inspiration fromsuffix ''{{wp|Khufu|Cheops}}-ops'', which is (ancommon ancientin Egyptiandinosaur pharaoh)names.
