One of the most reliable ways to get your hands on new Pokemon in Pokemon Go is through egg hatching. But what Pokemon can you expect from each type of eggs?
Unlike over in the main Nintendo console based Pokemon games, you don’t have to breed Pokemon to get your hands on Pokemon eggs. In fact, there’s no breeding mechanic at all. Instead, you’ll be rewarded eggs through visiting Pokestops throughout the world or through being given gifts by your friends. Hatching eggs is a great way to farm candy and actually has a good chance of providing better Pokemon with better stats than you might find out in the wild. Some of the rarer, best Pokemon in Pokemon Go are most easily obtained through hatching eggs, which is handy. If a Pokemon shiny form is in the game, there’s a chance for shiny when an egg hatches, too.
Pokemon Eggs are basically a mystery draw: you have no idea what you’re going to hatch until it hatches, though there are four different types of egg in the game and that’ll give you a broad idea of what to expect in terms of both hatch time and the potential Pokemon inside. Listing off a chart of the Pokemon that can hatch from each egg is one of the key purposes of this page, in fact – but we’ll get to that in a moment.
On this page we dive into the different types of egg, what Pokemon can hatch from them, and how to make eggs hurry up and hatch that little bit more quickly – but first, let’s quickly talk about how egg hatching works.
Pokemon Go Egg Hatching: getting eggs, hatching eggs and speeding up hatching
As we mention above, Pokemon Eggs can be obtained in Pokemon Go through Pokestops and gifts from friends. There are four different types of eggs, named after how far you have to travel in order to hatch them: 2km, 5km, 7km and 10km.
2km, 5km and 7km Pokemon Eggs are obtained through simply going to Pokestops and swiping them as with other items. 7km eggs are different, and can only be obtained from gift packages sent by friends. Gifts drop from Pokestops and while you can’t open them yourself you can then send them to friends so they can reap the benefits. A lot of different options can drop from gifts, but one are the unique 7km eggs, which have their own unique set of Pokemon associated with them (some Alola form Pokemon from Ultra Sun & Moon).
You can only carry 9 Pokemon eggs at once – if you have 9 and find one at a Pokestop, you’ll be forced to leave it behind. None will drop from gifts at all if your egg inventory is full. You’ve been warned.
Once you have Pokemon Eggs, you hatch them by putting them into incubators – just touch an egg and then choose an Incubator to put it in. You’ve got one unlimited incubator that has endless uses (this is the orange one), and this incubator is best used to hatch those fast-hatching 2km eggs. You can buy other types of Incubator or get them as rewards – they have three limited uses, after which they’ll break. The regular Incubator (blue) hatches at normal speed, while the Super Incubator (purple) hatches 1.5 times faster.
In order to hatch, all you need to do is walk with them in the incubator. Pokemon Go needs to be open, but you should consider turning on battery saving mode before slipping your phone into your pocket. This is also where the Pokemon Go Plus comes most in handy – you can use it to actually fully lock your phone and walk around while still racking up distance for Pokemon Go’s egg hatching – which in turn will save you a lot of battery.
Once you’ve walked the distance indicated by the egg name, a Pokemon will emerge. As you’d expect, rarer Pokemon come out of longer-distance eggs. Keep in mind if you’re cycling or riding as a passenger in a car that Pokemon Go only seems to track the distance traveled towards your egg hatching if you’re traveling at slower speeds – around 10mph or less.
Pokemon Go Egg Chart: what Pokemon you can get from 2km, 5km, 7km and 10km eggs
Okay, people, here’s where things get in-depth. As explained earlier (if you haven’t read it, go back!) there are four different types of Pokemon Egg in Pokemon Go – and the art of egg hatching is an exercise in random chance. Below we’re going to make it feel at least a little less random, and we’re going to accomplish that by listing Egg Charts for hatching for each egg type.
We’re also going to show a picture as well as name each Pokemon, to make matters easier, plus list what generation they’re from, what they can evolve into (and at what cost) and of course their type to cross reference with the Pokemon Go type chart of strengths and weaknesses. With any luck this’ll make your Pokemon Go Egg Hatching adventures far easier.
So, let’s get to that – here’s what Pokemon can hatch from each egg type. We’ll do our best to keep it up to date with patchces and changes. (Last updated on November 15 to concide with the Pokemon Go Egg Hatchathon event, which adds certain Pokemon species to 2km eggs until November 27.)
