The '''Old Amber''' (Japanese: '''ひみつのコハク''' ''Secret Amber'') is a [[Fossil]] introduced in [[Generation I]] that can be regenerated into {{p|Aerodactyl}}.
   
 
The Old Amber is different from 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.

The Old Amber is different from 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.
