How to Evolve Ursaring to Ursaluna in Pokémon: Legends Arceus

January 27, 2022

Pokémon: Legends Arceus introduces a new Hisuian evolution for bear Pokémon Ursaring – here are all the details on how to evolve it into an Ursaluna.

It’s exciting times for Pokémon fans with the launch of Pokémon: Legends Arceus! A new region means new locations and Pokémon to discover, including a new evolution for Ursaring.

This new evolution is Ursaluna, a Normal and Ground type Pokémon. It’s immune to Electric and Ghost type moves. and can be used as a mount to travel across the map. That, along with its reliable move set, makes Ursaluna a strong companion to take into battle. Keep reading to find out how to evolve one yourself!



To evolve Ursaring into Ursaluna, you’ll first need to find a Peat Block. Peat Blocks are a new item in Pokémon, special to the Teddiursa/Ursaring/Ursaluna evolutionary line. The best place to search for Peat Blocks is in the Crimson Mirelands.

You’ll only need one Peat Block to evolve Ursaring, but this item tends to be on the rarer side. It’ll be buried beneath the Crimson Mirelands’ bogs and pools, so you’ll need the help of one of your Pokémon to search. Use your Ursaring as a mount to run around the Crimson Mirelands, and a red-yellow half-circle indicator will tell you when you can “Dig for Treasure.”

Completing the “Dig for Treasure” action will usually net you an item, but it might take a while to find a Peat Block. Just keep searching the area around you until you finally dig one up. Luckily, once you do, the next part comes easily!

Ursaring Evolution Must Be During a Full Moon

As you might expect from a moon-themed Pokémon, Ursaring can only evolve into Ursaluna during an in-game full moon. Continually resting at a Base Camp and checking the skies will likely be the fastest way to reach a full moon night.

Once that moon is high in the sky, go to your Satchel inventory and select the Peat Block to press “Use.” The small Poké Ball icon by Ursaring’s name will start to flash yellow, and an icon reading “Compatible” will appear next to Ursaring’s name.

A Look at the Inventory.
The item will appear on the left-hand side, while your Pokémon will be on the right.

Select Ursaring, and the game will tell you “Ursaring is ready to evolve!” Selecting “Do it now!” will start the evolution sequence, and you’ll get to watch as your beloved Ursaring evolves into an Ursaluna.

And that’s it for this guide! Be sure to keep your eyes on DualShockers’ other Pokémon: Legends Arceus guides for more tips and tricks.

Pokémon: Legends Arceus is officially out to play on Switch on January 28, 2022.
