As the Pokémon theme song goes, “You teach me and I’ll teach you.” Therefore here’s how to hatch an egg in Pokémon Go.
In the game there are three types of eggs, 10km, 5km, and 2km. And your allowed to hatch an egg after a certain amount of steps are taken, which are tracked by your phone’s GPS and Pedometer and the game. And 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.
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 your egg. Each player starts with one Egg Incubator. 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 kilometres you must travel in order to hatch the egg. Then it’s just a matter of going off to explore while your GPS does the work! Hatching an egg will also earn you quite a bit of experience points (XP), and lots of Pokémon Candy for that Pokémon.
The GPS works in sync with your phone’s pedometer, which means no driving a few kilometres you must walk. Fast moving vehicles will likely disable the distance traveled unless there are frequent slowdowns or stops.
Most eggs take between two to five kilometres to hatch, but just like in the original Pokémon games, the longer it takes to hatch the rarer the Pokémon probably is!
