Every single fossil Pokemon is rock-type, why?
I understand that they're rock because they are from fossils, but why does this mean all of them have to be rock-type?
are they only rock-type because they are revived fossils? if a pikachu dies and gets fossilized and revived, will it be Electric/Rock?

Yes, it is all because they are fossils.

I mean, think about it. If you died and became fossilized, even if you were revived, you would still have some of the fossilizedness (lol that's not a word) right?

For Pokémon, their "fossilizedness" is their Rock typing.


Yes it is just because of them being fossilized.

well, i'd like to see what they used to look like before they became extinct. i highly doubt there will ever be an official thing about that though. also, i think in black/white anime it showed tirouga flashback from before extinction, and the pokemon was the same.
Lol i have no idea

According to Bulbapedia their rock type status might be a side effect of being fossilized or their origins, otherwise it's unknown why they have dual types except Craniados.
