Getting & Restoring Fossils hint for Pokemon White


Getting & Restoring Fossils

There are actually two places where you can get a Fossil, one place is within Relic Castle which is in Desert Resort just off of Route 4, enter in the Right entrance and visit a man on that floor and he will let you choose either a Cover Fossil or a Plume Fossil.

Cover Fossil Restores Tirtouga
Plume Fossil Restores Archen

The second place where you will be able to get fossils is from a worker who works on the first floor in Twist Mountain, come visit him each day and each day he will give you a fossil. This is how you can collect the rest of the fossils and add them to you Pokedex.

Armor Fossil Restores Sheidon
Claw Fossil Restores Anorith
Dome Fossil Restores Kabouto
Helix Fossil Restores Omanyte
Old Amber Restores Aerodactyl
Root Fossil Restores Lileep
Skull Fossil Restores Cranidos

Now to restore the fossils that you get, you can go to the Pokemon Museum, that is in Nacrene City and talk to the lady who is standing just right of the Reception area, she will restore the Pokemon from the fossil just make sure that you have room in your party for the restored Pokemon.

would just to like to clarify the time manipulation of the days in order to get each fossil at once, switching the date to the next day will not suffice, you haveto set the time a few mins before 24 hours and have the game naturally play for a few mins to pass the 24th hour and then go back to the guy

To put it simple every day I go to twist mountain and I have gotten all the following in a matter of 13 days straight: root, helix, skull, armor, claw, old amber, and dome. I collect the fossil save and next day do it again it takes time but you can get all of them regardless of Id#

To get to the guy in twist mountain you need the national dex. Enter twist mountain the iccurus city side and go south through the door then keep going south until you get to the bulldozer then head left and go inside the entrance you see and he is the first guy you see.

i just got a skull fossil on my second attempt first i got a claw fossil,then i went to the relic castle got an archen then i went back and got a skull on beat thattook me 1 day

Added 10th Dec 2011, ID #93890

You can only get fossils from him once you obtain the national pokedex. You can get fossils afterwards during any season. He is located at the very lowest level (take the Icirrus entrance, head south, then go to the door in the center of the interior of the mountain). You can't get a plume or cover fossil from him. You can only get one fossil per day, but it is possible to manipulate the DS clock so the game thinks you're on a new day. You can only get Celebi by trading at the moment, as the Celebi event has already passed.

Added 22nd Oct 2011, ID #82150

Added 9th Oct 2011, ID #79269

the last floor has a worker in it its the worker with the icey rock near him the rock is through a door,the lowest door u can get to has a guy ageinst the wall he has the fossils

Added 11th Sep 2011, ID #73935

is ther a way to get all fossils in one day like chang the time on ur ds?

Added 29th Aug 2011, ID #71095

yes, there are only seven different fossils so you are more than likely to get duplicates. i already have duplicates of two or three of the pokemon...

for those who want a specific fossil, just save your game before talking to the guy and if you don't get the one you want just restart your ds and see if you get it that time.

Added 9th Aug 2011, ID #65471

is it normal to get 2 of the same fossil?

Added 6th Aug 2011, ID #64416

i have asked that man on twist mountain like a million times and still haven't gotten a skull fossil!!

Added 1st Aug 2011, ID #63295

I have the national dex but there is still no worker what do I do

Added 25th Jul 2011, ID #61002

yes you need national dex

Added 17th Jun 2011, ID #49790

What are the chances of getting a skull fossil

Added 17th May 2011, ID #43452

I think that the worker in Twist mountain will only appear after you have obtained the national pokedex. i havent got it yet but judging by the pokemon he is talking about you will need the national pokedex.

Added 28th Apr 2011, ID #40241

i go to twist mountain every day and no one is there????????

Added 26th Apr 2011, ID #39999
