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 It how it was made!
