I came up with a Ancient Amphibian fossil pokemon. I think it would make a better Rock/Water then Carracosta. The reason I think so is because they were the true Kings of the water. I have an interesting story about a fossil skull I found when I was 7 if you want to here it.

I totally want to hear it! Post it here!
Ok so when I was 7 I discovered this really cool cave in the Mountains. I took regular trips to it because it was my birthday week and I got to spend it in the Mountains. Anyway so 2 days before my birthday I went into the cave and took a flashlight and chalk so I could see my way around and so I could mark where I'd been so that I didn't get lost. So I went really deep in the cave and I found this wall and at first it looked like a normal wall. So then I banged a big rock on the wall and some large pieces of rock came of the wall and there was huge skull that fell out with the pieces of the wall. I thought it was cool and it looked like an ancient amphibian skull. So the next day I came back and the skull was still there I decided to take it to the camp ground but I decided to do it leave it till tomorrow morning. When I came back in the morning I found out that there had been an overnight cave in and the front had collapsed.
I still visit the cave every time we go there and work on moving the rocks so that I can someday retrieve the skull. The skull was what got me interested in ancient amphibians. I think it might have been a labyrinthodont skull

...Just out of curiosity, where exactly were these mountains of which you speak? I might be able to identify the skull for you.
The Smoky Mountains in North Carolina
Favourite Prehistoric Animal: Therizinosauridae (the group, I can't point out any particular one)
There should totally be a Grass/Rock Tyrannosaur based pokemon, called Treerex. And it won't look like that failed attempt of a T-Rex named Tyranitar.
Welcome to the club and all that. I agree, there should be theropod Grass/Rock types. So, I created a starter line based on them! The starter is called Grassaurus, and I don't remember the rest's name. They were cloned from fossils, and the line goes somewhat like this:
Microraptor==> Utahraptor ==>Therizinosaur
Give me your feedback! : D
Sounds nice. Any idea what the skull might have been?
^ I did some internet research, and here's what I found:
Hope it helped!
It helped a little but im still not sure what it might be. The article indicates that most of the fossils if not all are invertebrates.
I very much doubt your fossilized skull story is true, but whatever.
Grassaurus -> Raptopi/Raptimber -> Treerex
This is more following the Alvarezsauridae -> Dromaeosauridae -> Tyrannosauridae route, but it works.
Where we live, there are mostly seashell fossils only a couple of million years old, but I think mastodon fossils have been discovered here. (Coastal CA FTW!)
I don't mind that you don't believe the story midgeorge but I know its real.
I hear that New England used to be a great crossroads for all kinds of dinosaurs when it was connected to Europe at one point (I think I saw that on a documentary on the History Channel). I live in Maryland, so that's not too far off. There might be some fossils that I just haven't looked for yet. Maybe I have to check out the paleontology section at the Science Center again.
Once I'm in college, I hope to move to Montana to follow a career of being a paleontologist and possibly author. As you know, Hell Creek is in that state, so I hope to be able to excavate some good fossils.
I don't get to do stuff like that but I have a piece fossilized mud filled with pieces of wood for around the start of the Permian. Once I get out of college I plan to be a .... Well its a secret. But lets just say it will revolutionize the scientific world.

It's almost definitely fake, but I have a Spinosaurus tooth at my house.
I didn't buy it I found in California. It took forever to find out what time period it was from. Also I exaggerated it is from the late Permian

Check out this link! It goes to a page with "Top 10's" of extinct species and extinct giants, among others.
I haven't heard of some of those but they're still amazing.
