    I remember seeing Forum members post about Pokemon before…

    I’m old enough that I missed out on the Pokemon craze, so I don’t know anything about them. However, a few Pokemon figures have made it into my stuff (unicorn goldfish!). I’m really intrigued by the Paleozoic era and the weirdly wonderful critters that lived then. Recently, I found a few figures that resemble Paleozoic animals enough to satisfy me. Not much is made of many of that era’s lifeforms besides Dimetrodons and sometimes cynodonts and coelacanths, maybe a few Dunkleosteous. So I can handle a cartoony representation.

    So I thought I might ask here, does anyone know of Pokemon figures that they think resemble Paleozoic life? I have no idea of names, so anything would help and be appreciated. Thanks!

    I don’t know about paleozoic, but there are lots of dinosaur-ish inspired pokemon…but a lot of them have random plant elements included or some other weird feature.

    Kabutops
    Aerodactyl
    Chikorita/Bayleef/Meganium

    Searching “Burgess Shale” on etsy gets some intriguing results:

    Or simply search the name of whatever critter you are hoping to find. People create some strange things!

    Thanks for all the responses! Etruscan, for whatever dumb blonde reason (yes I am) I was looking up Paleozoic, Cambrian and Precambrian, Silurian, Devonian etc. but never used ‘Burgess Shale’. Duh!

    Dasesndots and Drag0n, thanks! That list is very helpful, and it led me to retail sites also. They’re cheaper than ‘real’ Paleozoic models, so it works for me!
