Pokemon Shiny Diamond and Shiny Pearl have taken the world by storm with the amalgamation of faithful remakes of Pokémon Episodes 2022 and exciting new features found within. Players raced to get their hands on all the Pokemon up for grabs. One of the Pokemon players are looking for is Aerodactyl. A well-known flying and rock type that has great speed and attack stats to use in battles with other enemies. This guide article will tell you how to get Aerodactyl in Pokemon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Unlock National Dex in Pokemon Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl
First, before you can get Aerodactyl, you'll need to get the national dex. Aerodactyl can't just be caught in the wild, so you'll need to make sure you follow the steps here precisely to get Aerodactyl. The process of getting the National Dex might seem like a major feat when you first read it, as you need to encounter every Pokemon in the Sinnoh region. However, it should be noted that you just need to witness them and not catch them all. This also goes hand in hand with the fact that you don't need to own both versions of the game to encounter all Pokemon.
As you work towards encountering all the Pokémon, keep a close eye on your Pokedex and you'll have encountered them before you know it. When you complete this task, go to "Sandgem Town" and go to Professor Rowan's lab, talk to the professor inside and Professor Oak will then give you the National Dex upgrade at the end of the dialogue. You are now ready to get Aerodactyl.
How to Get Aerodactyl in Pokemon Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl
Now that you have the National Dex, it's time to start the process of getting Aerodactyl. This particular Pokémon can only be obtained by mining/"restoring" the "Old Amber" fossil at the Oreburgh Mine Museum. To get the Old Amber you will have to head to the Grand Underground which you can find the steps to access through this article.
Now that you have entered the Great Underground, begin to explore and dig up all the fossils and treasures you witness that can be determined as such if they glow and flash as yellow diamond-marked visual effects on the minimap itself. When you interact with the treasure with your trainer, they will start the digging mini-game and you will be able to get fossils through this method.
Keep venturing into the Great Underground and interact with any of these places you see until you end up digging up the Old Amber fossil. When you've successfully found it, head to the Oreburgh Mine Museum. There will be a scientist at the reception of the museum, talk to him and you can restore the fossil. After restoring the old amber, you will receive Aerodactyl to add to your Pokémon collection.
