Relicanth, the Longevity Pokémon. Relicanth is covered in stone-like scales, which allow it to extend the pressure of the deep ocean.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Relicanth, despite having the same typing as many of the Fossil Pokemon, is not a Fossil Pokemon, probably because it’s based on a real-life fish that’s thought to have been extinct, but isn’t. Its face looks like an old man, so that’s what I named my Relicanth.
Relicanth isn’t all that memorable, other than the fact that it’s one of the Pokemon required to unlock the Regis. I spent quite some time hunting for it in Emerald, where it was in the underwater grass near Sootpolis, with 5% appearance rate, but it felt like less.
Stat-wise, it has high Defense and Attack, like most Rock type Pokemon.
