    three questions about them
    1) Can I rare candy from a fossil to a omastar or omanyte?
    2) I know you cannot lay a fossil down on your first turn if you go first. But if you have only a fossil in your hand at the very begging of the game can you lay it down as your active or would you have to call a mulligan?
    3) kinda the same as the second question I guess but if you had 1 basic and 1 fossil could you put your basic as the active and then your fossil on the bench?

    1) Once a Fossil is put in play it is treated as a Basic Pokemon. You can use Rare Candy on it.

    2) If you start with a fossil in your opening hand and have no Pokemon, not only can you place it as your starting Pokemon, you MUST place it as your starting Pokemon.

    3) You can place Fossils during setup, but once the game starts, the player going first cannot play them because they are Trainers.
