The Rock/Dragon fossil Pokémon is known as Tyrunt and the Rock/Ice fossil is Amaura. They are revived from the Jaw Fossil and Sail Fossil respectively - as usual, in your game you only get to pick one!

The white dog is Furfrou and it's confirmed that you can trim its fur into several different styles and colors (see the video below). The male/female cats are named Meowstic. There are notable gender difference between male and female Meowstic, besides the inverse colors. The male learns more defensive moves and the female learns more attacking moves. It's also implied their base stats are different to accommodate this.

Along with the new Pokémon, a few minor new battle mechanics were noted:

  • Electric types can no longer be paralyzed.
  • Grass types are now immune to powder and spore moves (i.e. Cotton Spore, Stun Spore, PoisonPowder, Rage Powder, Sleep Powder and possibly Spore).
  • Ghost types are no longer affected by moves that prevent fleeing (e.g. Mean Look)
