Pokemon GO eggs can potentially provide the trainer with rare Pokemon, but not without hatching them first. Read our guide to find out how Pokemon GO eggs work.
One of the best ways to level up in Pokemon GO is to capture wild Pokemon, but filling up the Pokedex purely with captured Pokemon is difficult. Thankfully, the developers of Pokemon GO have provided an alternate way to find new Pokemon in the form of Pokemon eggs.
Pokemon GO doesn’t provide much of a tutorial, so while it can be exciting to find a Pokemon egg, it’s entirely possible for the player to not know what to do in order to hatch it. This guide will explain everything you need to know about using and hatching Pokemon eggs in Pokemon GO.
If you haven’t found a Pokemon egg yet, don’t despair. Every PokeStop you visit has a chance of awarding you with a Pokemon egg in addition to Pokeballs and other items, depending on your level. Just keep checking PokeStops until you receive a Pokemon egg.
Prepping Your Egg
Unlike the classic Pokemon games, there’s a little extra work that goes into hatching a Pokemon egg in Pokemon GO. Eggs need to be placed into Egg Incubators in order to be hatched. Thankfully, all players start out with one Incubator in their inventory, so if you’ve never hatched an egg before, you should be all set.
To place the egg in the Incubator, go to your Pokemon list and click on tab entitled “Eggs.” This will display a list of all Pokemon eggs that are currently in your inventory. Click on any egg and the game will prompt you to place it into an available Incubator.
