This page discusses Fossil Pokemon and how to get and revive them in the game Pokemon Sword and Shield. Read on for a list of Pokemon revived from Fossils and how to get each Fossil.
List of Contents
Fossils can be received from an NPC in the Stow-on-Side Pokemon Center. He will give you 2 Fossilized Birds in Sword, and 2 Fossilized Drakes in Shield.
You can find the Fossils in the Bridge Field area of the Wild Area. If you pay 500 Watts to the Digging Duo, they will dig up an Item for you. You can get the Fossils from either brother, but the brother on the left is more skilled and has a higher chance of finding a Fossil for you.
If you need Watts, check out out guide below on how to farm them!
Each Fossil Pokemon is made by combining two Fossil items. So, if you don't have two Fossils to combine, you won't be able to revive any Fossil Pokemon, so be aware of that before starting.
Fossil Pokemon can be revived by giving them to Cara Liss, the Professor found on Route 6.
The four Fossil Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield are as listed below. It seems that other fossils combination do not yield any Pokemon.
Dracovish, the Water/Dragon-type, has the benefit of its useful Dragon typing. As Water resists Ice, one of Dragon's primary weaknesses, Dracovish's type combination will definitely be welcome on your team.
Dracovish can have either the Water Absorb or the Strong Jaw ability, but be sure to go for Strong Jaw. It increases the effectiveness of moves with a 'biting' characteristic, so you can use it productively to up your power with fast results. It's a good idea to save before reviving the Pokemon so you can try again if you don't get the right ability on the first try.
As a rare Dragon/Electric type Pokemon, Dracozolt is our number two recommendation. Although it lacks the defensive type combination of Dracovish, it has the potential to complete your party with its combination of types, and can be a valuable asset in multiplayer battles.
