How to Get Eggs in Pokemon Go: Pokémon Eggs date all the way back to the second generation of the main series, and they play a significant part in Pokémon Go as well. On the surface, Eggs in Pokémon Go seem to be nothing more than another method of randomly obtaining new Pokémon – however, like the great Magikarp, we should not judge Eggs by their outward look. Eggs and hatching remain an incredibly important technique for growing your collection or for boosting up the Pokémon you currently own.
How to Get Eggs in Pokemon Go
- You can only store a total of nine Eggs at a time, including those in Incubators.
- If you reach the limit of nine Eggs, you’ll need to wait for some to hatch before picking up others. All eggs, whether 7km Eggs from Gifts or 2km, 5km or 10km Eggs from
- Incubators bought with PokéCoins, are disposable, having a maximum lifespan of three uses. To get the most out of them, hatch your 10km and 12km Eggs in disposable
- Incubators while your free, infinite-use Incubator rapidly produces 2km and 5km Eggs at a larger volume.
- From an Egg, only the first evolution of each chain is accessible – for example, Bulbasaur may be born, but not Ivysaur or Venusaur.
- That rule also applies to the infant Pokémon Togepi, Pichu, and Smoochum, since they were formerly classified as pre-evolutions and were placed in their respective egg groups with their developed forms – for example, Elekid with Electabuzz.
- Pokémon Eggs are generally the fastest method to power up starting Pokémon – Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, and the like unless you’re lucky enough to have discovered an especially excellent location to locate them in the wild.
- The fact that they are present in very common, quick-to-hatch Eggs is critical.
Unlike the main games, this time there is no breeding mechanism. Pokémon Eggs are randomly obtained at PokéStops – or, in the case of 7km Eggs, Gifts, and 12km Eggs, from Rocket Leaders – up to a maximum of nine in your bag. While collecting goods at PokéStops, you may come upon a Pokémon Egg. Place the Egg in an Incubator, and as you move, the Egg will hatch into a Pokémon.
How to Hatch Eggs in Pokemon GO
- To hatch an Egg, touch the Main Menu in the Map View.
- Activate Pokémon
- Tap Eggs at the top of the screen.
- Choose a single Egg from your collection.
- Select an Incubator by tapping Incubate
- Walk to the Egg’s hatching
Most crucially, there is no method to determine which Pokémon are contained inside the Egg, save by limiting it down to the four major Egg groupings below for 2km, 5km, 7km, 10km, and 12km Eggs.
Each Egg indicates the number of kilometres required to hatch it. By and large, the higher the necessary kilometers, the rarer the Pokémon that will hatch. When the egg hatches, a notice will display. To see which Pokémon may hatch from each Egg, touch on it, and a list of Pokémon that may hatch from that Egg will display. This list is arranged in ascending order of rarity, with one Egg symbol being the most frequent and five Egg icons being the most uncommon.

On Tuesday, 1st June, in conjunction with the introduction of Season of Discovery, the Pokémon accessible from 2km eggs changed. Additionally, you can now see which Pokémon can hatch from 2km eggs, along with their rarity levels, by touching the egg.
New Pokémon are sometimes introduced to the 2km egg pool in Pokémon Go as part of an in-game event. When this happens, some Pokémon in the normal 2km egg pool may transition to a higher tier, making it simpler for players to hatch event-related Pokémon. After the event concludes, the two-kilometer egg pool, including the rarity levels, will revert to normal.
- Slowpoke (Gen 1)
- Magikarp (Gen 1)
- Meditite (Gen 3)
- Wailmer (Gen 3)
- Buizel(Gen 4)
- Tympole (Gen 5)
The pool for the 5km Eggs was modified on Tuesday, 1st June, to correspond with the publication of the Season of Discovery. By tapping any 5km egg you possess, you can now view which Pokémon can hatch from it, as well as their rarity levels.
It’s critical to remember that during in-game events, 5km eggs have a possibility of carrying a Pokémon associated with that event, which will affect the tiering of Pokémon that are not associated with the event. Drowzee, for example, is a Tier 1 Pokémon in non-event 5km eggs but will be relegated to Tier 4 in event 5km eggs. This fills Tier One and Tier Three with event-specific Pokémon, making it simpler for you to hatch these Pokémon.
- Farfetch’d (Gen 1) – Tier 1 rarity
- Kangaskhan (Gen 1) – Tier 1 rarity
- Tauros (Gen 1) – Tier 1 rarity
- Heracross (Gen 2) – Tier 1 rarity
