A Plume Fossil in the anime

A Plume Fossil appeared in Archeops In The Modern World!, which had been given to Professor Juniper and Fennel by Lenora. They successfully resurrected a female Archen from the Fossil using Musharna's dream energy. With the help of Ash and his Tranquill, Archen learned how to fly and then evolved into Archeops.

Kiawe found a Plume Fossil in Treasure Hunt, Akala Style!, during the Stoutland Search treasure hunt set up for Ash and his classmates by Olivia. A Plume Fossil also appeared in on a holographic screen during Sophocles's first hunt for treasure.

Trivia

  • While the item description for the Plume Fossil states the Fossil came from a "Pokémon that (once) flew/lived in the sky", the Backpacker who gives away the Fossils in Pokémon Black and White mentions that the Plume Fossil is from a Pokémon that lived in an ancient forest, but could not fly. Considering what is known about the Archaeopteryx genus, this may be intentional to some degree.
