Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon by Tracey West is the third book of the adaption of the Pokémon anime. This book was published by Scholastic.
This book follows the plot of Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon. Ash, Misty, and Brock arrive in Grampa Canyon while a Fossil dig is underway. Ash and his friends decide to join, hoping to dig up a rare Pokémon. They bump into Gary. Soon, they discover that Team Rocket plans to blow up the canyon and take all the Fossils for themselves. In an attempt to defuse the dynamite, Pikachu accidentally explodes it instead, and Ash, Pikachu, Jessie, James, and Meowth become trapped inside a small cave. When trying to escape, they discover that they are sharing the cave with Omanyte, Omastar, Kabuto, Kabutops, and Aerodactyl. Aerodactyl picks up Ash and bursts out of the cave. Charmeleon decides to fight Aerodactyl and ends up evolving into Charizard to chase him through the sky. Before the battle can end, Jigglypuff appears and uses Sing, causing all of the Fossil Pokémon (as well as the others) to fall asleep. On their way out of the canyon, Ash and his friends discover a Pokémon Egg.
Ash, Misty, Brock and Pikachu go on a Pokémon Fossil dig. Things get explosive when Team Rocket accidentally wakes up some cranky ancient Pokémon - including a flying Aerodactyl!
Then, in the middle of the action, Ash finds a mysterious Pokémon Egg. Could it hold an unknown Pokémon?
