Pokemon GO Eggs

What are Eggs in Pokemon GO?

In Pokemon GO, players can obtain and hatch Eggs to get a random Pokemon.

There are a number of different types of Eggs that players can get in Pokemon GO. Each Egg has a distinct appearance, a certain walking requirement to hatch, and different Pokemon that could be hatched from it.

How to Hatch Eggs

To hatch Eggs in Pokemon GO, you must put them in an Incubator and walk a certain distance, depending on the Egg.

  • Go to the Egg menu. To do this:
    • Press on your Pokemon trainer’s face in the bottom left of your screen.
    • Scroll down on the ‘Me’ page.
    • Press the green ‘Eggs’ button.
  • Select any Egg you want to hatch.
  • Press the ‘Incubate’ button.
  • Select an Incubator you want to use to incubate the Egg.
    • Everyone has one Incubator with unlimited uses, while others can only be used a certain number of times.
  • Walk until your Egg hatches.
    • The distance you must walk depends on which Egg you are incubating.
  • Pro Tip: You can easily track your Egg hatching progress using the Pokemon GO Egg Widget!
