Pokemon Sun and Moon Fossil Pokemon

In our Pokemon Sun and Moon Fossil Pokemon, we have detailed everything you need to know about finding fossils and turning them into Cranidos, Shieldon, Archen, and Tirtouga.

Pokemon Sun and Moon Fossil Pokemon

In order to find fossils in Pokemon Sun and Moon, you need to head to the Stone Shop in KoniKoni City and purchase them from there. As mentioned earlier, you can only buy one of each fossil. Moreover, fossils are version-exclusive.

So in order to acquire all four Fossil Pokemon, you either need to have both versions of the game or know someone with the other version.

In Pokemon Sun, you can acquire the Skull and Cover Fossils and in Pokemon Moon, you can acquire the Plume and Armor Fossils. Once you have acquired the fossils, you need to turn them into actual Pokemon.

To do so, you need to head over to the Pokemon Centre on Route 8, continue up, and head right into a forest. A little ahead, you should be able to see a guy with a van who should offer to turn your fossils into actual Pokemon.

Pokemon Sun Fossil Pokemon

In Pokemon Sun, the Skull Fossil turns into Cranidos which evolves into Rampardos – a Rock-Type Pokemon. The Cover Fossil changes into Tirtouga which evolves around Carracosta – a Water/Rock type Pokemon.

Pokemon Moon Fossil Pokemon

In Pokemon Moon, the Plume Fossil changes into Archen which evolves into Archeops – a Rock/Flying type Pokemon. The Armor Fossil, on the other hand, changes into Shieldon which evolves into Bastiodon – a Rock/Steel type Pokemon.

Apart from these four, there are no other Fossil Pokemon that you can find in Pokemon Sun and Moon.

This is all we have on our Pokemon Sun and Moon Fossil Pokemon. If there is anything else you would like to add, let us know in the comments section below!
