Pokémon X, Pokémon Y: Ancient Pokémon Tyrunt, Amaura Revealed


You can only have one. Choose wisely.

The Pokémon Company have introduced two brand-new Pokémon for upcoming 3DS titles Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Both Pokémon, Tyrunt and Amaura, are said to be more than one hundred million years old.


Tyrunt is an ancient Pokémon from another age, and to add it to your team, you’ll have to restore it from a Fossil. You can choose between two Fossils during your adventure in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y—Tyrunt can be obtained by restoring the Jaw Fossil. It’s believed that Tyrunt is over one hundred million years old. The Pokémon is known to be a bit selfish, and will throw a fit when it doesn’t like something. Tyrunt has the new Strong Jaw Ability, which increases the power of biting moves like Crunch. Tyrunt can learn Dragon Tail, a Dragon-type move that gets an extra power boost because Tyrunt is a Rock- and Dragon-type Pokémon.
