How to get Amaura in Pokémon Go

Amaura first appeared in Pokémon Go during Adventure Week on Tuesday, 7th June 2022.


Throughout this event, you can obtain Amaura through a variety of methods:

  • In the wild – Appearing more frequently during set hours on Research Day, Sunday, June 12th
  • Adventure Week field research tasks – Walk 5km and Spin 25 PokéStops or Gyms
  • Adventure Challenge reward – Earn 5 Candies exploring with your buddy
  • Hatching 7km eggs – Must collect the egg during Adventure Week for the chance to hatch Amaura

As you can see from the methods listed above, the easiest way to catch an Amaura is to either complete field research, or find it in the wild during Research Day. Although keep in mind that Amaura is just a possible reward from these field research tasks, as Tyrunt can be counted instead.

Although there are many methods to get just one, make sure you’re catching plenty of Amaura, as you need that candy for its evolution!


If you want to catch Amaura by completing the Adventure Week field research task, it’s important to remember that the tasks given by PokéStops change on a day-to-day basis. This means this specific task may be rather hard to find, since you can receive event-exclusive tasks alongside the regular pool of monthly field research tasks.

If you wish to use this method, we recommend finding a Pokémon Go group for your local area, because someone might have already found the PokéStop you’re looking for.

At the time of writing, we don’t know what Amaura’s spawn rate will be once Adventure Week has ended. There is a chance, however, that it will be quite hard to find, along with all the other rare pokemon in the game.


Tea Season of Go has arrived and its first event is Adventure Week sees the release of amaura and Tyruntalong with their evolutions, into Pokémon Go. While Go Fest 2022 may be behind us, there are still three special research quests you might be working on – Pokemon Go Fest 2022, Rhi’s Arrival and A Radiant World. Meanwhile, the Great League and Great League and Great League Remix are currently running in the Go Battle League Season 11. This season has also seen the lowering of the level requirement for Candy XL and introduced the first Ultra Beast, nihilego.


How to evolve Amaura into Aurora in Pokémon Go

To evolve Amaura into Aurora in Pokémon Go, you need to collect 50 Amaura Candy and evolve it at night.

You can easily collect enough Amaura Candy by using Pinap Berries when catching it or by walking with an Amaura as your buddy.

At the time of writing, we’re yet to see whether Amaura and Aurora will hold any weight in the Go Battle League.

Still, if you want to complete the Kalos Pokédex, then you need to collect enough Amaura Candy to complete this evolution and Adventure Week is the best time to achieve this.

Good luck catching, and evolving, Amaura!
