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 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.
