Pokémon GO is a game full of small details and functions, that every few days is updated to receive even more features with which to keep hooking millions of trainers around the world. This, however, also forces players to stay abreast of the news if their goal is to become the best Pokémon trainers, and that is why every novelty must be studied to the millimeter to not miss anything.
A feature that takes Pokémon GO almost from the launch of the game, but that undergoes changes and receives news constantly are the eggs. These objects, undoubtedly the most important of the game of augmented reality starring the pocket monsters, hide a host of secrets that you should know, and that in this article we analyze one by one.
Eggs in Pokémon GO: what they are and what they are for
Among the dozens of items and objects that make up Pokémon GO , eggs are an essential part of any Pokémon trainer’s career. And is that thanks to these objects, it will be possible to get new creatures depending on the type of egg and the distance we have walked . The Pokémon Company uses the following definition to describe the eggs in Pokémon GO:
Pokémon Eggs are objects that can be found in Pokeparadas. When you place an Egg in an incubator and walk a specific distance, the Egg will hatch and become a Pokémon.
How to hatch eggs in Pokémon GO
We have seen that in order to obtain new Pokémon from the eggs in Pokémon GO, it is necessary to make them hatch. If you have been playing Pokémon GO for some time, this is probably no secret to you, but knowing how to hatch eggs from the first moment can be useful for those who have recently started playing. These are the steps to follow:
- Open Pokémon GO on your mobile.
- In the map view, enter the Main Menu .
- Click on “Pokémon” .
- Click on “Eggs” at the top of the screen.
- Select one of the eggs you’ve got.
- Press the “Start incubation” button .
In this way, the process of incubation of the egg that has been chosen will have begun. Keep in mind that each incubator can only incubate and hatch a single egg , and to be able to perform incubations of several eggs simultaneously, it will be necessary to get extra incubators -either three uses in the Pokémon GO store, or infinite -. And even if you have several incubators, you can only have a maximum of 9 eggs.
On the other hand, as you have probably already seen, each of the eggs requires a distance to be able to hatch , and usually those eggs of greater distance will generate less common Pokémon. And I do not think it is necessary to comment that Pokémon GO will only count the steps taken , and it will not be worth running, traveling by car or any other method of transport, or using applications with which to try to “cheat” the game.
Finally, it is worth mentioning that, until not too long ago, for Pokémon GO to count our steps and thus hatch the eggs, it was necessary to keep the application open in the background, with the extra consumption of batteries that this entails, or Have an accessory like Pokémon GO Plus. However, a recent update allows the game to count the steps of the players even though the app is closed, thanks to the “Sincroaventura” function and compatibility with Google Fit.
Types of eggs in Pokémon GO
Now, how can you tell which Pokémon you are going to get with each egg that you hatch? The truth is that it is not easy to know what creatures are going to get a particular egg, especially because the developer of the game is changing the variety of Pokémon for each type of eggs. Even so, as Pokémon GO players around the world are discovering , nowadays – updated to November 2018 – these are the Pokémon that are likely to come out – but it is not safe to do so – in the eggs of 2, 5, 7 and 10 kilometers :
