If you were looking for the card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game, see Old Amber (Majestic Dawn 84).

The Old Amber (Japanese: ひみつのコハク Secret Amber) is a key item fossil from the Generation I games, their Generation III remakes. It can also be found in all games from Generation IV and beyond, where it is no longer a key item.

In the Generation I and III games, Old Amber can be obtained in a back room of the Pewter Museum of Science. The HM for Cut is needed to get there, as a bush blocks it off. It is given to the main character by one of the scientists working there. If brought to the laboratory on Cinnabar Island, the Old Amber can be regenerated into an Aerodactyl.

In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, it can be found by mining in the Underground after obtaining the National Pokédex. If brought to the Mining Museum in Oreburgh City, the Old Amber can be regenerated into an Aerodactyl.

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Old Amber can be found randomly by smashing rocks at the Ruins of Alph, and revived at the Pewter Museum of Science.

In Pokemon Black and White, Old Amber can be found by talking to a Worker outside the Ice Rock room in Twist Mountain who offers a different fossil once per day.

The Old Amber is different than the other fossils, being a type of fossilized substance rather than a fossil named by its appearance (However, the Aerodactyl skeleton in Pewter City Museum implies that it does have its own fossilized remains). It is possibly inspired by Jurassic Park, in which genetic engineers extracted dinosaur DNA from mosquitoes trapped in amber and used it to recreate dinosaurs.

In the anime, Gary Oak obtains an Old Amber and uses it to revive an Aerodactyl in Putting the Air Back in Aerodactyl.

As in the games, in Pokémon Adventures, Red was able to revive an Aerodactyl from the Old Amber in the Cinnabar laboratory and added it to his team.
