Give your fossils to the man at the reception to turn them into living Pokémon!

You can find fossils in Glittering Cave by smashing the cracked rocks with Rock Smash. At first, you’ll only find one type of fossil - Old Amber - but after beating the Elite Four, you’ll start to find a variety of other fossils.

Take these fossils to the Fossil Lab in Ambrette Town and hand them over for them to be converted into Pokémon! Sweet! Below you’ll find a list of all fossil-types and what Pokémon they revive.
