Meet the fossils of Pokémon X and Y

2 min read

Jiggly Park

If there’s one constant in Pokémon games, besides the fact that Nurse Joy never returns my phone calls, it’s fossils. Fossil Pokémon to be exact. Collecting one of those rare bits of preserved DNA is a recurring tradition in every Pokémon game. And it looks like Jigglypuff Park just got two new additions.

Your first revived ancient Pokémon is Tyrunt. By choosing the Jaw Fossil, you’ll get this little fella, who can evolve into the rather kickass Rock/Dragon type Tyrantrum. Pokedex descriptions from Poké!


It is believed that Tyrunt is over 100 million years old. The Pokemon is known to be a bit selfish, and will throw a fit when it doesn’t like something.


Tyrantrum’s greatest weapon is its jaws, which can shred thick metal plates as if they were paper.

Next, if you’re more of a herbivore fan, you’ve got Amaura. Obtained via the Sail Fossil, Amaura is a Rock/Ice type that can evolve into Aurorus.


Like Tyrunt, Amaura is believed to be 100 million years old.

Aurorus-X-and-Y (1)

Aurorus can also blast air to form a wall of ice to protect her from attacks.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go play god and start a theme park filled with pissed off revived prehistoric Pokémon and put it on a remote island where nothing can possibly go wrong. Nope, nothing at all.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
