Museum of Natural Mystery – Catch ‘Em All # 1: Extinct Pokemon

Exploring the Origins of Fossil Pokemon

Appendix:

 

“Find new species and catalog them.” This has always been the driving force behind natural history, but it’s also the prime directive of Pokemon. The Pokemon franchise is steeped in the traditions of exploration and taxonomy, and nowhere is this more evident than in the player’s ability to collect fossils and revive fictional prehistoric beasts. Today, we take a look at the real-world counterparts that inspired fossil Pokemon!
