Description: Resurrected using DNA found in Old Amber, Aerodactyl resembles a pterandon. It has smooth, greyish, purple skin and massive, purple mebranous wings. Although it is capable of walking, Aerodactyl is a much stronger flyer and prefers that form of movement over walking. Its numerous, sharp teeth indicate that it was an obligate carnivore; however, those resurrected through science have shown a fondness for fruits and vegetation as well.

Capable of Mega Evolution, Pokémon experts believe that Mega Aerodactyl looks closer to what Aerodactyl from prehistoric times looked like. It is significantly larger and covered with incredibly sharp rocks. Its hands have been replaced with five, sharp rocks. Rocky plates cover its chest and face. Mega Aerodactyl are even more vicious than standard Aerodactyl and are easily angered.
