#696 Tyrunt

Its immense jaws have enough destructive force that it can chew up an automobile. It lived 100 million years ago.

Tyrunt is one of the fossil Pokemon in Gen 6. It’s in the family of the first and so far only Dragon-type fossils. In X/Y, it has a exclusive ability Strong Jaws (it has since been given to other Pokemon), which increases the power of biting moves by 50%.

It’s based on a young T-Rex; the X Pokedex entry talks about it throwing a tantrum when it doesn’t get what it wants, like a spoiled prince (its species is Royal Heir Pokemon).

The Pokemon Y Pokedex says it lived 100 million years ago, but real-life T-Rexes lived 68–66 million years ago. Does this mean the Pokemon Universe is ~35 million years into our future??
