The Jaw Fossil (Japanese: アゴのカセキ Jaw Fossil) and the Sail Fossil (Japanese: ヒレのカセキ Fin Fossil) are Fossils which can be regenerated into Tyrunt and Amaura, respectively.

In the games

In X and Y, the Jaw and Sail Fossils are found in Glittering Cave, where the player can choose which of the two Fossils they would like to take after defeating Team Flare in the cave. The Fossil not chosen is given to Serena*/Calem*.

The Fossils can be revived in the Fossil Lab in Ambrette Town.

For Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, they are the only fossils absent from either game. Other than transferring the Pokémon revived from either fossil from X and Y, it is possible to have another Pokémon hold onto the fossil when traded over to Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. There, they can be brought to the Devon Corporation in Rustboro City to regenerate them into Tyrunt and Amaura, respectively.

A Sail Fossil made a brief appearance in a flashback in Coming Back into the Cold!. It was discovered from a glacier by a group of researchers from the Ambrette Town Fossil Lab, and it was eventually revived into two Amaura, one of which later evolved into an Aurorus.
