Aurorus (アマルルガ Amaruruga) is a Rock-Ice-type Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. It is Tyrantrum's counterpart.

Biology

Physiology

Aurorus is a huge dinosaur-like Pokémon bearing resemblance to the Amargosaurus, Apatosaurus or a Brachiosaurus with light blue colored skin, a teal stomach, and blue eyes. It has many icy gems on the sides of its body and a long, curled tail. When it emits a cry, the thin blue-tipped membrane on its head ripples with a light green color, while it attacks, the membrane turns orange. With the icy crystals that line its sides, Aurorus can freeze the surrounding air and trap its foes in ice.

Evolution

Aurorus is an evolved form of Amaura, by leveling up to 39 or above at night.
