    This question by charmanderrox:
    Everyone's saying that you can't use Fossil Excavator to get Old Amber or Aerodactyl.

    However, Fossil Excavator refers to a "card that evolves from a Fossil." Now, in the glossary of instruction manual, it refers to Fossil Pokemon, which would include Old Amber. Wouldn't that make Aerodactyl evolve from a Fossil, therefore searchable by Fossil Excavator?

    has been answered with
    Not the new MD Aerodactyl, no.

    If Fossil Excavator would read "or a Stage 1 or a Stage 2 Evolution card that evolves from a Pokémon with Fossil in its name" i would totally agree because Old Amber does not have fossil in its name. But it says "evolves from a Fossil" and Old Amber is a Fossil (at least for the purpose of starting the game) and this is puzzling me. Or is the translation of Fossil Excavator not exact enough?

    Could you please look into this question again?

    We have confirmed. Fossil Excavator cannot get a MD Aerodactyl.
