Pokemon Go Adventure Week is one of those annual Pokemon Go events that focuses on a particular type or theme. This event often targets the Rock-type, and usually the fossil Pokemon from the various regions, while also incentivizing trainers to go out and explore their surroundings.

With this year’s event, trainers will have two new fossil Pokemon to catch in Tyrunt and Amaura, the Kalos region fossils, as well as two new Shinies that were previously unreleased until this Pokemon Go event. There’s a lot for trainers to do in the Adventure Week 2022 event, so this guide will break it all down.

Pokemon Go Adventure Week 2022 Start Time

This year’s Pokemon Go Adventure Week event begins on Tuesday, June 7 at 10 a.m. local time, and ends on Sunday, June 12 at 8 p.m. local time.

How to Catch Tyrunt and Amaura in Pokemon Go

During the Pokemon Go Adventure Week 2022 event both Tyrunt and Amaura will be introduced into the game, but they won’t be as frequent as other debuting Pokemon.

On Sunday, June 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., a special Ultra Unlock Research Day will occur. This will allow trainers to use special research to get Cranidos and Shieldon encounters as well as other Rock-type Pokemon.

However, Tyrunt and Amaura will appear in the wild during specific times of the day. Tyrunt will appear from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. local time. Amaura will appear from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. local time. 

Participating in the Ultra Unlock day is the easiest way to catch both new fossil Pokemon, otherwise, trainers need to stock up on 7km Eggs obtained through friend gifts. Tyrunt and Amaura will be uncommon hatches from these eggs. 

Tyrunt and Amaura will also be reward encounters for completing specific Field Research tasks. More on those in the section below.

How to catch Shiny Tirtouga and Shiny Archen in Pokemon Go

The fossil Pokemon of Gen 5, Tirtouga and Archen, will finally get their Shiny variants introduced into Pokemon Go with this annual event. Like with Tyrunt and Amaura, these two Pokemon will have specific ways to catch them in the wild and via other methods.

The Gen 5 fossils can also be hatched from 7km Eggs obtained during the event as common hatches. They are in the same rarity pool as Shuckle, Slugma, Cranidos and Shieldon.

Both Tirtouga and Archen will be reward encounters for specific Field Research tasks. To get a Shiny, trainers will have to rely on luck and complete as many of these tasks as possible. More information on these tasks can be found in the section below.
