Trying to find out which Generation 2 Pokemon hatch from eggs in the recent Pokemon GO update? Look no further than this guide for the answers needed.

With over 80 Johto region Pokemon making their way into Pokemon GO with a new update to the mobile smash, many gamers are returning to the game in order to pick up their favorite Pokemon from the second Pokemon generation. However, as always with the Niantic-developed mobile title, some of the pocket monsters are harder to come by than others. Thankfully, eggs will always be on hand to help users try and complete their collection as quickly as possible.

Of course, knowing what the end result could be when an egg hatches makes up a big factor in whether Pokemon GO players put in the time and the effort to hatch an egg. Because of this, it’s important to know which Pokemon lie behind the different egg tiers of 2K, 5K, and 10K. Thanks to Pokemon GO Hub, users can now know what to expect from their eventual hatch.


Let’s start with the 2K eggs. In this group, there are a number of well-loved second gen Pokemon, including the Gen 2 starter Pokemon Chikorita, Totodile, and Cyndaquil. Togepi and Pichu are also included in this list, following on from their availability as egg hatches prior to the additional Gen 2 Pokemon update alongside other baby Pokemon, as well as the likes of Remoraid and Slugma. Here’s the full rundown of second generation 2K egg hatches:

2K eggs:

  • Aipom
  • Chikorita
  • Totodile
  • Cyndaquil
  • Misdreavus
  • Pichu
  • Remoraid
  • Slugma
  • Togepi
  • Cleffa
  • Igglybuff
  • Ledyba

The 5K egg tier also includes plenty of beloved Pokemon. No doubt fans of Pokemon Gold and Silver have been itching to get their hands on Sneasel, for instance, and the Ice/Dark Type Pokemon is one of those available through an egg hatch. Alongside Sneasel, other fan favorite Phanpy is also in the 5K egg tier, as well as the likes of Wooper and Tyrogue. Here’s the full list of 5K egg hatches:

5K eggs:

  • Elekid
  • Sneasel
  • Yanma
  • Girafarig
  • Natu
  • Magby
  • Phanpy
  • Qwilfish
  • Shuckle
  • Smoochum
  • Stantler
  • Tyrogue
  • Wobbuffet
  • Wooper
  • Dunsparce

The 10K tier includes fewer Pokemon than the ones before it, but that won’t stop the completionists after a full Pokedex from getting them all. Larvitar and Miltalk sit in this tier, while Mareep is a bizarre addition given its relatively common nature in the base Pokemon games themselves. Sudowoodo is also available through a 10K egg, as well as the likes of Gligar and Mantine. Here’s the second generation Pokemon gamers can find in 10K eggs:

10K eggs:

  • Gligar
  • Miltank
  • Larvitar
  • Mantine
  • Mareep
  • Pineco
  • Skarmory
  • Sudowoodo


Since this update went live, Pokemon GO fans have been working out the ins and outs of the most recent changes, in an attempt to catch as many of these Gen 2 Pokemon as possible. Already, the mechanics behind evolving second generation Pokemon have been discovered, while those after additional Eevee evolutions now know how to get hold of Umbreon and Espeon. Those fans who want to catch Unown can also now find the mysterious Pokemon in the wild.

No doubt, however, that there are still many mysteries to be unveiled with this Pokemon GO update, and how to get Metal Coat may be just the tip of the iceberg. After all, there have been many claims that some Pokemon may once again be tied to a specific geographical location, with Heracross potentially region-locked. Only time will tell whether that turns out to be true or not, but there will probably be more surprises in store for players over the coming weeks.

Pokemon GO is out now for iOS and Android devices.
