Trivia

  • It is the only fossilized Pokémon that does not have any evolutions.
  • Aerodactyl is one of only 3 Rock/Flying types. Coincidentally, they are all fossil Pokémon.
  • In the games, it is one of the three Pokémon Lance has that is not a Dragon-type, the others being Gyarados and Charizard.
    • Strangely, they are all Flying-type Pokémon.
    • Aerodactyl is the only one that is weak against Steel-type moves.
  • Aerodactyl is the only Rock-type Generation 1 Pokémon that doesn't take 4 times the amount of damage from a Grass-type attack.
  • According to the Official Pokemon X and Y website, researchers believe Mega Aerodactyl may be the true form of Aerodactyl.

Origins

Its name is composed of two parts; "aero", meaning related to the atmosphere, and "dactyl", the second part of the name Pterodactyl.
