Omanyte (Japanese: オムナイト Omunaito) is a Rock/Water-type Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation I that can only be obtained by resurrecting it from a Helix Fossil.


Omanyte is a snail-like Pokémon that died out millions of years ago. It has many tentacles, which it used to crawl along the muddy seafloor. It has two large eyes that just stick out under its curvy shell. It is based on the ancient sea-creatures Ammonites.
