History

Red, Green & Blue chapter

As an Old Amber
As a newly revived Aerodactyl

When Red first met Giovanni in Make Way For Magmar!, he gave Red an ancient fossil known as the Old Amber, which contained a DNA sample of an ancient, now extinct Pokémon, as a reward for stopping two wild Magmar that were causing a fire at the Pewter Museum of Science. When Red later encountered Blaine at the Cinnabar Island in Holy Moltres, they faced with the Legendary bird Moltres, which was under the control of Team Rocket. Even Red's Water Pokémon Gyara was unable to defeat the Legendary Fire-type, and Blaine realized that to stand a chance against the Flying-type Pokémon, they needed a Flying-type of their own. When seeing Red's Old Amber, Blaine sent him to the Island's laboratory, where Red was able to revive the Amber into an Aerodactyl. With this new Pokémon on his side, Red was able to make Team Rocket retreat.

When Red later met up with Blaine again in And Mewtwo Too?!, he joined him in a battle against the Legendary Genetic Pokémon Mewtwo. Although Mewtwo seemed practically impossible to stop, Red finally managed to use Aero to glide through Mewtwo's Psywave tornado in order to get close enough to send Pika in with Blaine's Master Ball, successfully catching Mewtwo.

Red and Aero

In Long Live the Nidoqueen?!, Red used Aero in his battle against Giovanni at the Viridian Gym. When Red was pushed into a corner, he managed to call Aero out and attack Giovanni's Beedrill with Hyper Beam, knocking it out. Giovanni then switched to his type specialty of Ground Pokémon and had his Rhyhorn use Tail Whip to take Aero out of the fight.

FireRed & LeafGreen chapter

Rock Head activated

In Double Dealing with Deoxys, Red used Aero alongside Pika as his last two Pokémon in his battle against Blue. Red had Aero use Take Down on Scizor, which dealt no recoil damage due to his Rock Head Ability. Aero followed up with Dragon Claw on Scizor, so Blue switched him out for Rhydon. Seeing an opening, Red has Pika attack Machamp with an electric attack. To Red's surprise, the attack is suddenly redirected. Blue smirks and reveals that Rhydon has the Lightningrod Ability, which causes all Electric-type moves to be redirected towards it. Since Pika's Electric attacks had no effect, Pika jumps into the air and delivers an Iron Tail onto Machamp's head. The battle then ends in a tie.

Later Red sent Aero out in his battle against Deoxys. However, the DNA Pokémon proved to be way too strong for the Fossil Pokémon, as he was first badly slugged by Deoxys's powerful punch and then had his wings pierced by Attack Forme Deoxys's tentacles. He was soon later nearly killed along with Red's other Pokémon while defending his Trainer from Deoxys's Psycho Boost. Due to his injuries, Aero had to remain in his Poké Ball afterwards, and as a result, Red had to later temporarily trade Blue's Charizard into his team to use as transportation, as Aero could not fly in his current condition.

In Distant Relation Deoxys and Storming the Forretress, Aero was seen joining Red's other Pokémon to take down the ten Forretress that Carr had placed inside the Team Rocket airship.

Emerald chapter

In The Final Battle VII, Aero was seen battling Guile Hideout's stolen Battle Tower Pokémon.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter

In PAORAS11, Red was seen using Aero for flight transportation while he and Green pursued Maxie and Archie, who had broken into Bill's Sea Cottage and stolen the Red and Blue Orbs from him.

Personality and characteristics

Aero appears to love the outside as the first thing he did when he got resurrected was to look outside through the window in Blaine's laboratory. He is shown to be reckless as he often rushes into situations without giving it much thought or concern. He is also very generous as he rushed to help Blaine and Gyara even though he had just met Red.
