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 a 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 encounted 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 Pokémon in the game.

The Season of Adventures Abound is here! Currently the Out to Play event is running. You can also work on the Timed Investigation: Master Ball quest and compete in the Go Battle League. Be sure to compete in Shadow Raids, complete Routes, use Daily Adventure Incense for the chance of encountering Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres. This incense may also give you encounters with other rare Pokémon in Pokémon Go.

How to evolve Amaura into Aurorus in Pokémon Go

To evolve Amaura into Aurorus 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 a Amaura as your buddy.

At the time of writing, we’re yet to see whether Amaura and Aurorus 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!
