Day 14: Favorite Rock type: Archen

When I was a kid I was super into dinosaurs. My aunt used to work at Rite-aide as a manager and would always bring me Pokemon magazines, video game magazines, and dinosaur/science magazines. I once read an article about the Archaeopteryx in one of those magazine. I remember being so awesomed out by this thing because one, the fossil I'm most familiar with looks rad as hell, and two, it was one of the first fossils ( If I remember correctly) to be found with feathers. It just really struck a good note in like 6-7 year old me. So when Black and white came out when I was in late High school, and Archen and Archeops came out, I was really excited. They were based off of that amazing fossil I read about as a child. It's no surprise then that it ended up being my favorite fossil pokemon and rock type!

Also, I realize I didn't do a very good job on the fossil, but that's supposed to be the plume fossil behind Archen.

Come check out how this was drawn at Colors!

Pokemon belongs to Nintendo

It could be a good competitive Pokémon but sadly its ability really makes it bad...

It was still good in NU when I played Pokemon Showdown. :D (Big Grin) 

But it was 2 or 3 years ago, don't know how it is going today :( (Sad)

It's good in NU and not that bad in RU but that's about it

In all honesty anything could happen in sun and moon. Let's hope!

That would could actually be a thing. But I feel chatot would be the one they'd do it with.
