Heh, I'm a big fan of your articles, Arty2! They were one of the things (along with the Pokemon zoo page on Bogleech) that inspired me to try writing my own. Your coverage of the fossil Pokemon is pretty exhaustive, and I'm holding off on writing about most of them because there isn't a lot that I add (though I may give Lileep a try soon).
Another one I knew. But still a fascinating read. Relicanth hold a special place in my heart as the pokemon that helped get me back into the franchise. (and I had one I could NOT beat in the Battle Tower)
Also knew about it due to playing Animal Crossing on the Gamecube before discovering Relicanth. Still, this series is great and loved reading the article about it.
I already knew the coelacanth existed, as well as the "living fossil" name, but I didn't know the background of its discovery.
George Hutcheon/Bikini Miltank, keep this column comin'. I always learn more from these.
I already knew about the coelacanth from the DS version of Animal Crossing. Nonetheless, I was surprised that the shiny color is based off an actual species, since I thought the shiny colors were random. o.o
I love how thorough the articles are; keep up the amazing work~
Thanks to Gamefreak there are heaps of such things to write about :)
Alright, another of these great articles! I always loved Relicanth.
Speaking of Relicanth, anyone ever figure out why it and Wailord activated that one Regi event?

Heard somewhere that it has to do with the fact that fish like the Coelacanth evolved to live on land and that dog-like animals evolved to live in the sea as whales.
As a further reference to the real world, the shiny Relicanth may have been discovered first.
And Relicanth being a rock-type may mean that the fossil pokemon were rock-types ages ago.
How come the qoute I sited isn't in a box?
