*{{wp|Amber}} is fossilized tree resin commonly found with insects trapped inside of it. The Old Amber is based on the theory of extracting DNA from the blood still preserved inside the insect to bring back past lifeforms. In real life, however, amber cannot preserve DNA.
* It is the only Pokémon Fossil that does not have an alternative choice to form a pair.
* It is the only Pokémon Fossil that has appeared in [[Pokémon Adventures]].
* The mosquito seen in the first generation artwork is a rare case of a [[Animals in the Pokémon world|real life animal]] in the Pokémon world.
*While the Old Amber is the only fossil absent from [[GenerationPokémon VIISun and Moon|Pokémon Sun, Moon]], [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon]], {{p|Aerodactyl}} can still be obtained when received as a [[Gift Pokémon|gift]] at [[Seafolk Village]].
