Earn an Amaura through eggs and research during the Adventure Week event in Pokémon GO to get your own Aurorus.
How to get Amaura and Aurorus in Pokémon GO

Adventure Week has gone live after Pokémon GO Fest 2022, and that means a couple of new debuts within the game including Amaura. The main theme of the event is Fossil Pokémon, and that means players will have plenty of opportunities to grow their overall collection.

Tyrunt is also getting a debut alongside Amaura in Adventure Week, and they both have similar paths to earning and evolving their first forms. But this guide will focus on Amaura and the second form known as Aurorus. Both of these Pokémon appeared in Generation VI as counterparts like many other Fossil duos.

There are about four different methods that you can use to catch your own Amaura during the Pokémon GO Adventure Week. The five days of the event will be your best bet at getting the new Fossil duo, but it won't be impossible after. Chances of finding them will just be far lower, so priority should still be given to this week.

The first method of getting Amaura is hatching an egg, but not just any egg. Amaura has a chance to hatch in 7km eggs which are obtained by opening gifts from friends. However, they must be obtained during the event week and any 7km eggs from before will not have a chance at Fossils.

Field Research tasks are one of the easiest methods for getting an Amaura or a Tyrunt. If you happen to get challenges labeled with "Walk 5km" or "Spin 25 PokéStops" these will have a chance for a debut Fossil Pokémon encounter. Other Field Research should be dropped if you want these specific Fossils.

In the Adventure Week challenges themselves, there is one at the bottom of the list that gives a chance for an Amaura encounter. This challenge is labeled "Earn 5 candies exploring with your buddy" and could take longer than you expect. Five candies can translate to 10-15km.

The final method is to wait until Research Day on the 12th of June. This one day will increase the spawn rates of the debut Fossil Pokémon during event hours, so you'll want to keep those in mind this week.

In order to get an Aurorus in Pokémon, you'll need to get at least 50 Amaura candies. This takes on average about 17 different catches without any boosts or transfers. Of course, Pinap Berries can help with this process.

Once you have enough Amaura candies, the 50 is all you will need as most Fossil duos only have one other form. The catch with Aurorus though is that the evolution must happen during nighttime. On the other hand, getting a Tyrunt evolution will require the process to happen during the day.
