Cover Fossil or Plume Fossil?

    Which one did you pick in your B/W games - The Cover Fossil or Plume Fossil? Did you use one of the Unova Fossil Pokemon on your team? Who is your favorite Gen 5 Fossil Pokemon, Carracosta or Archeops? What do you think of this Fossil pair compared to the Fossils of other regions?

    I didn't particularly care for the Gen V Fossil Pokemon, although I suppose that Protoga (Tirtouga) is somewhat cute at the very least. I chose the Cover Fossil in Black, White 2, and Black 2 for that reason.

    Cover Fossil. There weren't many water types besides Carracosta that I liked in Gen V, and as much as I liked Archeops's design and high speed/attack stats, its Defeatist ability could be a real pain sometimes.

    Cover Fossil because Tirtouga & Carracosta look cooler + they don't have a hindering ability.

    I choose plume as I already had a water type that being dewott but I love both of them equally in my opinion they have great designs and awesome stats I love sweeping with either of them, I think why I love them so much comes down to the episode out of the anime, I forget what it's called but it's the one where tirtouga is from the past I think.

    The cover fossil. Tirtouga/Carracosta is my favorite turtle Pokemon and I think the sea turtle/flightless bird was a welcome addition to fossils. One thing I notice is that both Carracosta and Archeops both play around a risk and reward battle style, Carracosta having Shell Smash and Archeops having the Defeatist ability and I freaking love it. I especially like Costa, Black's Tirtouga/Carracosta from the Pokemon Adventures manga who has a stubborn badass old man personality lol. Black's relationship with his Carracost is basically, "Please notice me Senpai!" lol.

    I chose the Cover Fossil while playing through Pokémon Black. I found Tirtouga to be cute, and Carracosta was a solid Pokémon to use. On top of that, I am not a huge risk-taker, so Archeops' Defeatist is a really big turn-off for me.

    Cover mainly because of the bad Ability Archen and Archeops have. I really like the Archen line more than the Tortouga line but that awful Defeatist Ability makes me not want to use it.

    I'll go with the Plume one, as Archeops looks cooler and is quick and powerful despite having a horrible ability. I still like the Tirtouga line, though.

    Can’t decide as both are great. I’ll probably say Archeops due to liking it longer

    Abagoura (Carracosta) actually has an appealing design now that I think about it, although I never would've used one myself despite that, because from what I remember the species has a low Speed stat, and I tend to use Pokemon that are fast. And while on the subject, I always thought that Abagoura looked a lot like an older version of Kamex (Blastoise) without the shell cannons.
