Fire-Red fossil statistics?

0 votes

In Fire-Red, are the stats(Nature ect) determined when you receive the fossil, or when you revive it at the cinnabar islands? Thanks!

Confirmed.
They are determined when you recieve the Pokemon revived. In B/W I had an Archen with an awful nature. I shut my game off and received it again; it had a different nature. So, again It's determined when you get the revived form.

Source: Experience and two online sources that said so.

I lost the other one, sorry.

Assume? A more accurate source would be appreciated, if your not 100% sure. Though your answer does make sense, as the transition from item to pokemon might would mean its stats would probably be determined then.
I don't have another source right now, I'll look for one.
Umm, Can you link the sources? xD
Sure lol I forgot. But they don't lead to Gen 3 sources. One's Gen 5, one's Gen 4.
Probably the same mechanic
The sources?
Oops. Had to leave. I'll put it in.
