Despite launching in only three weeks, Nintendo is not done hyping up Pokémon X and Y. Today the company unveiled the evolved forms of Amaura and Tyrunt, the two new fossil Pokémon revealed during last week’s big Poké-announcement.

First up, Amaura evolves into Aurorus, the Tundra Pokémon. Like its pre-evolution, Aurorus is a Rock/Ice Pokémon with the Refrigerate ability. It can learn a new Ice-type attack called Freeze Dry, which has a chance of freezing the opponent, and is super-effective against Water Pokémon.

Tyrunt, meanwhile, evolves into Tyrantrum, the Despot Pokémon. Like Tyrunt, Tyrantrum is a Rock/Dragon-type that has the Strong Jaw ability, which improves the strength of biting attacks such as Crunch. Tyrantrum can learn Head Smash, a powerful Rock-type attack that causes recoil damage to the user.

Like previous Pokémon titles, players will come across special fossils during Pokémon X and Y, which can be revived into either of the above two monsters at the Fossil Lab.

Which fossil Pokémon will you be choosing? Let us know in the comments!
