==In the games==
The '''Helix Fossil''' (Japanese: '''かいのカセキ''' ''Shellfish Fossil'') is a [[Fossil]] introduced in [[Generation I]] that can be regenerated into {{p|Omanyte}}. It is the counterpart of the [[Dome Fossil]].

In the Generation I and III games, the Dome and Helix Fossils are [[Key Item]]s found in [[Mt. Moon]] after defeating {{tc|Super Nerd}} Miguel. While both are present, {{player}}s are allowed to choose only one, as the other one will be taken by Super Nerd Miguel. If brought to the [[Pokémon Lab]] on [[Cinnabar Island]], the Dome and Helix Fossils can be regenerated into {{p|Kabuto}} and {{p|Omanyte}}, respectively. The Pokémon extracted from Super Nerd Miguel's Fossil is seen in the zoo just outside the {{safari|Kanto}} in [[Fuchsia City]].
 
In {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, they are no longer Key Items, being demoted to simply items. They can be found by mining in [[the Underground]] after obtaining the [[National Pokédex]]. Helix Fossils are more common in Diamond while Dome Fossils are more common in Pearl. If brought to the [[Oreburgh Mining Museum]], the Dome and Helix Fossils can be regenerated into {{p|Kabuto}} and {{p|Omanyte}}, respectively.

Rocks purchased in {{DL|Join Avenue|Antique Shop}}s of Black 2 and White 2's [[Join Avenue]] may contain Dome or Helix Fossils.
=====Generation I and III=====
In the Generation I and III games, the Helix Fossil is a [[Key Item]].
 
Both Dome and Helix Fossils can be found via Rock Smash in the [[Glittering Cave]], but they are {{DL|Game-exclusive Pokémon|Generation VI|exclusive to Pokémon Y}}.
=====Generation IV onward=====
From Generation IV onward, the Helix Fossil is no longer a Key Item, and is a normal item. Therefore, multiples of them can be obtained, they can be [[held item|held]], and sent to other players via [[trade|trading]].
 
In {{pkmn|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}, they can be found randomly through Rock Smash in different [[Mirage spot]]s. However the Dome Fossil is exclusive to Omega Ruby and the Helix Fossil is exclusive to Alpha Sapphire. They can be brought to the [[Devon Corporation]] in [[Rustboro City]] to regenerate them into Kabuto and Omanyte, respectively.
===Description===
 
{{movedesc|items}}
In {{pkmn|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon}}, they can be bought one time only from [[Olivia]]'s jewelry shop in [[Konikoni City]], with the Helix Fossil only available in Ultra Sun and the Dome Fossil only available in Ultra Moon. However, they can also be obtained from Isle Aphun at [[Poké Pelago]] regardless of version. By conducting a Rare Treasure-Hunting expedition (or an Interesting Item-Hunting expedition once the island has reached Development Level 3), the Dome or Helix Fossil have a very rare chance of being obtained.

In ''[[BW014|A Night in the Nacrene City Museum!]]'', a Dome Fossil was first seen chasing [[Hawes]], as he claimed it to be doing, but was later seen safely placed in a display case. Hawes later explained what it was to Ash and {{ashfr}}. It was later revealed that the {{p|Yamask}} in the Nacrene City Museum was using its move {{m|Psychic}} to make the Dome Fossil float and chase after Hawes after he put its mask in a display case, thinking that it was a replica Yamask mask given to him as a gift from the company that made a {{p|Cofagrigus}} replica after purchasing it from them for the museum.

===In Pokémon Origins===
A Helix Fossiland Dome Fossils briefly appeared in ''[[PO02|File 2: Cubone]]'', where itthey were shown being hogged by a {{tc|Super Nerd}} at [[Mt. Moon]].

==In the TCG==
Both the Dome and Helix Fossils appear on the artwork for the {{TCG|Mysterious Fossil}} card. However, the artwork depicts the Dome Fossil as the Fossil of a {{p|Kabutops}}, Kabuto's evolution, rather than of a Kabuto. The two Fossils were later split off into their own individual cards.

==Trivia==
* The Helix Fossil became a meme as a result of the first {{game|Red and Blue|s}} run of [[Twitch Plays Pokémon]], which also produced the meme "Lord Helix" in relation to {{p|Omanyte}}.
* In [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]], when the language is set to French, before battle [[Brawly]] says, "{{tt|J'ai découvert le secret de la vraie puissance en fixant un ''Nautile'' pendant des jours et des jours...|I discovered the secret of true power by staring at a Helix Fossil for days and days...}}", [[List of cross-canon references|referencing]] the aforementioned meme.
* In the ''Red'' and ''Green'' games, the artwork for the Helix Fossil depicted a bivalve clam shell instead of a spiral shell. This was changed starting with Generation III where the sprite depicts the Helix Fossil with the spiral shell that Omanyte possesses.
