Aerodactyl (Japanese: プテラ Putera) is a Rock/Flying-type Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation I only obtainable by resurrecting it from an Old Amber. In Gold, Silver, and Crystal, the player can receive an Aerodactyl from a person on Route 14 by trading a Chansey with them.

Aerodactyl is from the prehistoric age, and because of this its name and physical characteristics are based on that of a Template:WP.

Pokédex entries



Name Origin

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


  • 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-types.
    • Of them, Aerodactyl is the only that isn't a main Starter type.
    • 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.
  • Aerodactyl's cry is the same as Vileplume's.
