I actually like almost all fossil Pokemon, but I think Kabutops is the coolest.
GF did really well with the newest Fossil additions. Archeops is a favored sweeper of mine. But Carracosta wins this for me. I look along these lines:
Sturdy ability. Shell Smash. Waterfall/Rock Slide. Good night.
That, and its design is of my favorite, especially its head. Overall, very well developed, like a turtle/troll mixture.

Kabutops! YEAH! XD
Kabutops is my favourite out of all the fossils. In Rain it becomes faster than Aerodactyl due to Swift Swim and can sweep teams with ease. Not just that but also a Rain boosted Aqua Jet with it's already high Attack stat can be devastating. Aside all that it's been a mystery to me since Gen 1 and I have always been fascinated by it's freaky, yet strong appearance.
Archeops. I really like it.
When used correctly it can be a BEAST.
You know I researched what an omanyte is and it is an ammonite. Interesting, isn't it?
And Kabutops is similarly to how Kabuto is based on horseshoe crabs, it resembles eurypterids, prehistoric arthropods which hunted in seas and rivers and are believed to have been related to modern horseshoe crabs. The large head is also identical to the cephlon in trilobites and the spines down the back resemble thoracic sections in trilobites, though the scythes and predatory nature much more closely resemble eurypterids. Because of these cross-similarities, it may also be based on the Cheirurus genus of trilobites.
The kabuto in Kabutops's name could be derived from kabuto, helmet, referring to its shape and rock-like properties. Its head has a resemblance to a kabutogani, horseshoe crab. Tops might be a reference to the extinct creature triceratops, ceratopsidae in general or triops.
Pretty cool, huh? It rocks! It has scythes like Scyther! :D
