Helix Fossil or Dome Fossil?

    Which of the these two Kanto Fossils did you usually end up picking at Mt. Moon? The Helix Fossil or the Dome Fossil? Did you use either Fossil Pokemon on your Generation 1 teams?

    I always picked the Dome Fossil because I just liked Kabutops alot more than Omastar and I used Kabutops on my Blue version team.

    I have no preference, so in one version I pick up Helix and in the other one I pick up Dome. Just to complete my Dex, nothing too special here :)

    I usually selected the Shellfish (Helix) Fossil when given the choice between the two. I just liked Omnite (Omanyte) more than Kabuto since Kabuto looked too flat to me, and Kabutops looked too much like a brown version of Strike (Scyther). But I never used either of those two Fossil Pokemon lines on my teams back in Gen I, although I did use Ptera (Aerodactyl) in Red version.

    Dome fossil for me. I like Kabutops and I think that Omastar is too defensive compared to it. I think that Kanto still has my favorite set of fossil Pokemon out of the whole franchise.

    I feel the same way, although perhaps that's just my nostalgic side talking. But for some reason I liked all the Kanto Fossil Pokemon to some extent. Even Kabuto [whom I was critical of before] had one of the best episodes of the OS series of the anime at least, so there's that.

    Dome. Because Kabuto & Kabutops look cool

    Helix. I always liked Omanyte, and coincidentally, as a kid the first fossil I found was an ammonite fossil.

    Helix Fossil. I prefer Omanyte to Kabuto, and I felt like it had a cooler-sounding name when I was younger.

    I always picked the Helix fossil, my best friend always picked the Dome fossil. We would make trades in order to complete our respective Pokedexes.

    I like both of them, but I'll go with the Helix one, as I like Omastar's design better, and it gets Shell Smash.

    Helix Fossil all the way. Not for the memes, but I've always perferred Omanyte and Omastar over Kabuto and Kabutops. Also, unlike Kabuto it can take advantage of Water moves before the physical/special split

    I usually just pick one at random since I rarely have any plans to use them. (I like both Omastar and Kabutops, but there are lots of other water and/or rock types that I'd rather use.) Aerodactyl's the only Kanto fossil that I ever really bother with.

    Dome Fossil for me as well. I like a lot the rocky yet at the same time sleek looking Kabutops' characteristics.
