Vivosaur Information

#009 Air Medal Shanshan


Fossil Fighters

Shanshan lands a lot of critical hits, but a low LP ranking makes it vulnerable in the AZ position. Be careful!

Fossil Fighters Champions

Shanshan often lands a critical hit and can eventually learn Grow Up, which allows it to transform into Tarbo.

Fossil Museum

    • In Fossil Fighters: Champions, it is the only Vivosaur marked as "young", indicating it is a juvenile stage of another Vivosaur, Tarbo.
  • Shanshan is in the first Dig Site in both games, along with Goyle and Tarbo.
  • Shanshan is one of the Vivosaurs used in the Knotwood Forest Attendant's Element battle demonstration.
