Description: Archen was a small bipedal Pokémon that had both bird and reptile traits. It had bright red scales on its head and legs, while the rest of its body was covered in yellow, teal and red feathers. Although it had wings and feathers, Archen didn't fly, but rather ran very fast.

Although they went extint millions of years ago, scientists have been able to resurrect Archen using Plume Fossils. Doing so, they have learned much about this prehistoric Pokémon's behavior. Archen are omnivores who both hunt for food and eat very particular plants. These plants will only grow in response to Archen's cry but the berries produced by said plant are Archen's favorite food.
