With the addition of second-generation Pokemon to Pokemon GO, Pokemon trainers can expect to see plenty of new creatures out in the wild and hatching out of eggs. For those curious about their odds of hatching a particular Pokemon out of an egg, Reddit user Topottsel has put together an updated chart that lays out the approximate odds for hatching each Pokemon.
Fans may be most interested in learning the rarest second-generation Pokemon that can hatch from each type of egg. For 2km eggs, the rarest Pokemon is the ghost-type Misdreavus, which should come as no surprise as ghost-type Pokemon have always been relatively rare in Pokemon GO, except during the game's Halloween event.
5km eggs, which players are more likely to earn at PokeStops than 10km or even 2km eggs, have quite a few second-generation Pokemon assigned to them. The seven rarest second-generation Pokemon that players can expect to hatch from 5km eggs (with about a 0.62% hatch rate) are Dunsparce, Girafarig, Qwilfish, Shuckle, Sneasel, Wobbuffet, and Yanma. When it comes to 10km eggs, the two rarest Pokemon are Miltank and the intimidating steel/flying-type Skarmory.
Besides revealing the rarity of second-generation Pokemon players can hatch from eggs, the updated chart also highlights Pokemon that aren't available from eggs. Unfortunately for those wanting to get their hands on one of the second-generation starter Pokemon like Chikorita, Cyndaquil, or Totodile, they can only be found in the wild. A slew of other second-generation Pokemon can't hatch from eggs either, including popular Pokemon like Marill.
The updated chart also reveals Pokemon that used to hatch from eggs, but no longer do so, for better or worse. Fans may be happy to know that common Pokemon like Pidgey and Rattata are now exclusive to the wild, but others may be disappointed that Mankey and Meowth no longer hatch from eggs.
Of course, these Pokemon could be added back to the pool of Pokemon that can hatch from eggs at some point in the future. Niantic updates Pokemon GO on a regular basis, and the changes it continues to make to the game will likely necessitate this chart to be updated once again in the future, especially when the third-generation Pokemon are added to the mix.
Pokemon GO is available now for iOS and Android mobile devices.
