Ursaring is one of the many Pokemon that has a very special requirement for evolving in Pokemon Go and other games. We’ll go through everything you need to know to evolve Ursaring into Ursaluna in the mobile game.

Since the beginning of the Pokemon franchise, certain Pokemon have had very specific ways of evolving that require more than just leveling up. Pokemon Go isn’t an exception, and some Pokemon require players to complete specific actions, like trading, to evolve.

Ursaring is one of those Pokemon, and its evolution is tied to a limited-time window, so let’s go through what players need to do to evolve it into Ursaluna in Pokemon Go.

How to evolve Ursaring into Ursaluna in Pokemon Go

In Pokemon Go, Ursaring can evolve into Ursaluna by spending 100 Teddiursa Candy on a full moon night.

Players should be able to see the full moon in the sky on the Map view of Pokemon Go. While the full moon should show up on the same day it does in the real world, players reported it can take a few days to actually happen.

If the full moon is active in the game, players can tap the evolve button to evolve Ursaring into Ursaluna. There are some limitations to this, however, since some players weren’t able to evolve Shiny, Shadow, or Purified Ursaring in the past.

Trainers need to wait for the next full moon to evolve Ursaring into Ursaluna.

When is the next full moon in Pokemon Go?

The next full moon should appear in Pokemon Go around May 5, 2023. As we mentioned, this could take a few more days to show up in-game.

Players suspect this is not a feature that’s synced with the real-world calendar, but something developers can turn on and off whenever they want. So trainers looking to evolve Ursaring into Ursaluna soon should keep an eye for a few days after that date.

If you missed the May 5 date and want to be a few steps ahead for the next one, here’s the real-world full moon calendar for the rest of 2023:

  • June 3
  • July 3
  • August 1
  • August 30
  • September 29
  • October 28
  • November 27

There you have it! Make sure you have enough Teddiursa Candy for the next full moon. For more Pokemon content, make sure to check our other guides:
