What are Pokémon Eggs, How to Find, Incubate & Hatch Eggs in an Incubator

Pokémon Go is no doubt an interesting game. It offers many features that can be fun to play around it. It is not just a game where you go around places and catch Pokemon’s, but you can also collect various items and mess around with them. One such item is Egg. Collecting, attending to and hatching eggs comprise some of the most fun aspects of Pokémon Go and represent one of the best real-world translations of the classic role-playing games to the augmented reality app.

Here’s what you need to know:

In Pokémon Go, the Pokemon can’t breed. There are no facilities to support that, not until now so maybe in future developers might try something like that. Instead, the type of Pokémon tucked inside of an egg you’ve found is a matter of chance. In a sense, eggs are Pokémon Go’s random loot boxes, waiting to be unpacked and their contents discovered.

Where to find them:

Pokémon Go is all about walking, and hence you are going to find more eggs only with that. You find them in Poké stops, and once you have them, the only way to hatch them is by walking. Yes, eggs will hatch after their owners walk anywhere from two to 10 kilometers; the particular requirement is listed underneath the egg. One important thing to remember here is, the app must be open at all times while trying to hatch your eggs. Pokémon Go does not play in the background without you.

What else do you need to hatch them:

It’s not just as simple as walking around with them. You need to incubate them using an Egg Incubator. Thanks to developers, you get one when you start the game, and you can use it an infinite number of times. However, each Egg Incubator can house just one egg at a time. That means, for those who want to hatch all of the eggs all at once, you’ll have to invest in additional Egg Incubators. You can find them at PokéStops or when you level up, but Pokémon Go also sells them to players in exchange for PokéCoins as well. To put an egg inside an Egg Incubator, select the egg you’d like to hatch from the egg menu, then choose an Egg Incubator to pop it inside of.

What Pokémon will I get from them:

It’s hard to say exactly; it depends on the type of eggs you have. Also within that, it can be anything ranging from the typical ones like Rattata and Pidgey to the more exotic, like Dratini and Lapras.

This should help you get started on working with eggs, and you can start hatching and playing around with them. Be sure to let us know what did you hatch out of them.
