#347 ANORITH & #348 ARMALDO
This was a challenge to make because, much to my dismay, art containing these plated shrimp Rock/Bug Pokémon were as rare as their fossils are in the games. I chose Anorith and Armaldo during my first play-through of Ruby, due to their nifty design and typing, but was dismayed to find the internet lacking in fanart. What's wrong with you, internet? You getting weak?
Apparently someone out there loves the cutesy cuddle bug, with it's little feathery appendages, big googly eyes, little clicker-clacker claws, and bow shaped tail, enough to make some fanart of it. I really think Anorith is a nifty design, very unique and with a cool color scheme, that stands out amongst the fossils up until this point.
Anorith takes it a step further with it's kaiju design that gives it this powerful looking armored body that resembles a mix between some sort of raptor, praying mantis, and prawn. As for mechanically, it has a rather disappointing movepool and its stats aren't quite up to snuff. Still, I like Armaldo. Maybe the Fossil folk will get third stages some day?
