Why do places like the Pokemon Tower exist?

Yeah, I get that Pokemon can die. I mean, duh. Look at fossils.

But think about it.
You see people mourning over their Pokemon's graves in the Pokemon Tower and whatnot. Why don't they just dig up their Pokemon and take the corpse to the museum? It works for fossils that have apparently been dead for like, 300 million years. Why can't it work on a Pokemon that died fairly recently?
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

because it's not the original poke from before

fossils take a long time to form. And i think the scientists only make replicates of the Fossil Pokemon, not reviving the actual one.

Reviving has a 10,000 year dead prerequisite

Actually, it is.
Museums actually REVIVE the fossils.

Speaking of death...this reminds me of that thing i heard about where you fight a corpse rising out of a grave in lavender town ..and if you lose a gameover screen pops up showing the corpse dragging red into the grave
Maybe you should worry less about the tides, who've already made up their mind about killing you, and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over -Azula-

They are making a clone of the species, not that same particular pokemon. So at that point they might as well just go catch a new one of the dead pokemon.

Are the fossils actually being revived with their memories? Or are they being remade from their DNA like in Jurassic Park, and the process consumes the fossil as material needed for the recreation?
1. The only fool bigger than the person who knows it all is the person who argues with him. 2. They're all complacent sheeple.

Dead corpses need time to fossilized. Trust me. (Not that I know, I just heard it from someone)

I would think that their DNA is stored so they could revive them but they may end up with a totally different attitude being a completely different poke-mon of the same species. Example: That tough bad ass Charizard may be revived as a more timid one and without the memories from the previous life. That's just my theory, I've been thinking about that since I first revived my fossils in Red Version.
I'm starting to wonder if all the mods on this site are the same person, and if that person is even old enough to be here.
