Amaura (Japanese: アマルス Amarus) is a dual-type Rock/Ice Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It is resurrected from a Sail Fossil and evolves into Aurorus when leveled up at night starting at level 39.

Biology

Amaura is a quadrupedal, dinosaurian Pokémon that resembles a sauropod. It is light blue with a white underbelly. It has a long neck, a short, stubby tail, and a single white claw on each hind foot. Above each of its large, deep blue eyes is an iridescent, sail-like structure. Typically, the sails are yellow at the bottom and fade into pink toward the tips. On each side of its body is a dark blue crystal. Pokémon-Amie has demonstrated that its sails can change color with its mood and the crystals on its sides permanently remain at freezing temperatures.

This ancient Pokémon was restored from a Sail Fossil that had been frozen in ice for over 100,000,000 years. However, although Amaura was restored successfully, it is not expected to live long in the heat of the current environment. It calmly lived in cold lands where there were no violent predators like Tyrantrum around. As seen in the anime, when Amaura whinnies, auroras appear in the night sky.

From Generation VIII onward, Amaura and its evolved form, Aurorus, are the only known Pokémon that can have Refrigerate as an Ability.

Evolution

Amaura evolves into Aurorus.

An Amaura appeared in Pikachu, What's This Key?. It was a resident of a world full of ice and snow, which was accessed by Pikachu and his friends, courtesy of Klefki's keys.

An Amaura appeared in Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel. It was injured when a Pokémon Hunter tried to capture it, but it was rescued by Volcanion and taken to the Nebel Plateau, where it recovered.

Trivia

  • Amaura and its evolved form were designed by Hitoshi Ariga.[1]
  • Amaura has some similarities with Tyrunt. Both are Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI with a base stat total of 362 and evolve starting at level 39, although Amaura evolves at night instead of during the day.

Origin

Amaura is based on a young sauropod dinosaur, specifically the Amargasaurus, which were speculated to have sail-like fins or skin extensions on their vertebral spines. According to designer Hitoshi Ariga, he decided to design Pokémon based on sauropods with the consideration that they would pair well with the Tyrannosaurus-based Tyrantrum's evolutionary line. The Amargasaurus was chosen as a base for these sauropod Pokémon to differentiate them from other Pokémon with similar body shapes such as Lapras, Meganium, or Deino.[2] Amaura also shares traits with various other species of Diplodocoidea (a classification of sauropods which includes Amargasaurus).

The color-changing sails upon Amaura's head appear to be based on auroras, which are predominantly seen in polar regions and are most visible at night; these may also inspire Amaura's Ice-type and the fact that it can only evolve at night.

Name origin

Amaura may be a combination of Amargasaurus and aurora.

Amarus may be a contraction of Amargasaurus.
