Boss Pokémon come in two varieties: Mega Evolved Boss Pokémon and Colored Boss Pokémon. The two types spawn in different ways and drop different items.
Fossils are items which can be resurrected into particular species of Pokémon. They can be obtained by mining fossil blocks; once a fossil has been cleaned using a fossil cleaner, it can be resurrected with a fossil machine. After a few minutes, you can obtain the new Pokémon by placing an empty Poké Ball in the fossil machine.

In addition, the Water, Ice and Fire gyms each have two distinct layouts.
