Even though Tyrunt is based off of the ‘Poster Boy’ of dinosaurs, a lot of people seemed more excited Amaura, the Ice/Rock Pokemon based on either a sauropod. Though from it’s evolution it doesn’t look like there’s any one in particular it was based off of that I know of at least.
Dinosaur nerdism aside, the reason this Pokemon is getting a lot of attention isn’t for it’s My Little Pony-esque looks, but rather it’s new ability, Refrigerate.
Refrigerate is a move that turns the Normal type moves Amaura uses into Ice Types and even though this Pokemon has a 4x weakness to fighting. A lot of people aren’t looking forward to STAB Ice Hyper Beams or Ice Body Slams.
So let me know, which fossil Pokemon are you leaning toward? As much as I like Tyrunt, I think I’ll be choosing the Sail Fossil.
