    Not sure what to think if this is real. Definitely looks better than its godawful first form, but I was hoping for something a bit niftier. Also them frills are ridiculous.

    Diamond Dinosaur! I really like the frills, and I really like the Aurora theme they seem to have used. I usually much prefer one fossil of the generation over the other, but I really do like both of the Kalos fossils. I hope both are available in both games, if not I'll have some trading to organise!

    All of this. All of it! I really love what they did with this design and it completely saved the line for me. ♥

    I think I'll still likely go for Tyrunt on my first playthrough but I'll be happy to pick up an Amaura at some point for Aurorus. Its ability is going to be fun to toy with. ^^
  5. Amaura was rather plain looking, yes; it's evolution looks a lot better. However, I'm rather biased with Tyrunt for being a T-Rex, so I'll probably train one of those first before getting this fabulous sauropod. I do have intentions of training it though, it's ability and typing are very interesting!

    Any ideas on how it's stats might turn out? I'm thinking something along the lines of Lapras, with equal offensives and a focus on defense. I just hope its ability will see some use, given that the better normal moves are physically-oriented.
  6. Altough I pretty like its design, (and man, them frills) I'll enjoy even more hurting this thing with a Flash Cannon of Doom. 'Nuff said.
    Have to admit though, its ability is really something I did not expect. We'll see where it goes.
  7. Those....those frills.. They're all over the place! I like this design, even though I'm going to be using Tyrunt over this, I still like it. I also adore those diamond like ice things on it's sides.
  8. I guess it's alright. I like the gems, and I used to love the dinosaurs with the long necks when I was younger so it's got that going for it. But overall, I wouldn't be sad if this thing stayed extinct.
  9. Right now I'm definitely adding one of the fossil pokémon to my team, but now I'm torn between the two:
    • On one hand, I'm in love with Tyrantrum and the kid in me is saying "OH MY GOSH!! IT'S A T-REX!! MY MOST ABSOLUTE FAVORITE DINOSAUR OF ALL TIME!!! GET IT!!! GET IT!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PLEASE GET IT!!!!!" Not to mention its Rock/Dragon typing is like icing on the cake to me.
    • On the other hand, I really like Aurorus' s design too & I've really been considering adding an Ice type to my team for months now. Plus, its Refrigerate ability and new move Freeze Dry are definitely tempting.

    Basically, one is more practical while the other one is based on fan-boy geek outs

  10. Ugh, I need both of these fossil Pokemon!! I love this one, it's so elegant and it's a sauropod, my favourite kind of Dinosaur! :D
  11. I want to get both of these because this pokemon has that move that can be super effective against water while the atk is ice
    Nikos Kousidis and PurpleTartan like this.
  12. It's so cute and fancy looking.
  13. Aurorus looks so majestic~
    • I really recommend One of these gentle giants on your team its a tank too.

  15. Oh wow…. Aurorous looks so cool.:-O
  16. i believe that the reason behind it only being able to evolve at night is because the aurora lights only happen at night
  17. I love it, I have one on my team and it's a great powerhouse - but I still prefer Mamoswine.
  18. This is my favorite Ice type hands down. Nice ability, cool design, and can be a tank.
