pokemon go egg hatching probabilities

Tracking down Pokémon can be tough. You’re at the mercy of your location and sometimes your favorites just won’t appear near you. But did you know that one of the best ways to potentially catch rare and hard to find Pokémon without travelling far is by hatching Eggs? Of course, you need to actually get an Egg first! You’ll find them randomly at PokéStops, and they come in three varieties: 2 kilometers, 5 kilometers, and 10 kilometers, or about 1 mile, 3 miles, and 6 miles respectively for us Americans. Those distances denote how far you have to walk for each of them to hatch, after putting them in an Incubator.

Now thankfully, you start the game with one Incubator already which has infinite uses–but the catch is that each Incubator can only hold one Egg, so you’ll need to pick up normal Incubators if you want to hatch more than one egg at a time. You can either buy them in the Shop or earn them when Leveling Up. But Normal Incubators can only be used three time before breaking.

Now there are a few rules when it comes to hatching Eggs. For one, the Pokemon Go app has to be open to register the distance you travel. Secondly, you can only hold a maximum of nine Eggs at a time. If you’re maxed out, PokéStops won’t give more until you’ve made room. And finally, if you go too fast, the distance won’t be counted toward your Incubated Eggs. But that doesn’t mean you can’t cheat a little.

Now we’ve heard conflicting reports about the exact speed limit, but it seems that as long as you stay under roughly 25 km per hour, or 15 miles per hour, Pokémon Go will count the distance traveled and hatch your eggs even faster. So cars, trains, or planes are probably out, but running or biking should do the trick! Besides new Pokémon, hatching Eggs provides other bonuses as well. Players earn 1000 XP for simply hatching the Egg and an additional 500 XP if it’s a new Pokémon. You’ll also receive Stardust and that Pokémon’s Candy, and the higher the CP of the hatching Pokémon, the more you’ll get. But you might be wondering which Pokémon you can hatch from Eggs? And as it turns out, almost all of them! The only exceptions are Ditto, evolutions, and Kanto’s Legendary Pokémon. So no Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo or Mew. So that’s a lot of Pokemon, and as it turns out, they’re divided amongst the three Egg distance ranges, providing you with at least some idea of what might hatch from each egg.

And thanks to Serebii.net, we have the full list. So 2 kilometer Eggs can hatch one of 14 Pokemon, which includes: Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Caterpie, Weedle, Pidgey, Rattata, Spearow, Pikachu, Clefairy, Jigglypuff, Zubat, Geodude, and Magikarp.
