Eggs and Hatching in Pokémon Go

Eggs and Hatching in Pokémon Go

Most eggs take between two to five kilometers to hatch.

In Pokémon Go, you can often find Eggs in the wild, by interacting with PokéStops to find free items.

There are different kinds of Pokémon Eggs which can hatch into numerous Pokémon, but to hatch them you’ll have to do a bit of work. Each player will start with one Egg Incubator, which allows you to hatch an egg after a certain amount of steps are taken, tracked by your phone’s GPS and Pedometer and the game. There are 3 types of eggs, 10km, 5km, and 2km.

How to Hatch a Pokémon Egg
Eggs and Hatching in Pokémon Go
To hatch an egg, check your Pokémon list and hit the tab labeled “Eggs”. Clicking on the egg will prompt you to put it in an incubator to begin the process of hatching said egg. Note that you only have one incubator to start with, but more can be bought from the Shop, or rewarded for reaching certain levels.

Once in the incubator, you’ll be given an indication of how many more kilometers you must travel in order to hatch the egg. Then its just a matter of going off to explore while your GPS does the work!

Take into consideration that the GPS works in sync with your phone’s pedometer, so you can’t trick it by hopping into a car and driving a few kilometers. Your game must be open and you must walk for that distance to count toward the hatching of your egg. Fast moving vehicles will likely disable the distance traveled.

Most eggs take between two to five kilometers to hatch.

If you want to save on battery power, be sure to enable the Battery Saver in the Settings, and place the phone upside down in your hand or pocket – which will darken the screen and disable most functions aside from tracking your movement, and alerting you to Pokémon or PokéStops.

Hatching an egg will also earn you quite a bit of XP, and lots of Pokémon Candy for that Pokemon.
