Egg Hatching Chart
Pokemon Go Egg Hatching
Walking is the best way to hatch Eggs. Driving or Riding in a car won’t give you near the amount of credit for the distance you traveled. Prior to the last update, over 25mph would not count towards your egg hatching. Since the new update, you need to stay under 15 miles (24 kms) per hour to keep the counter working. Much testing has been done, and the optimal travel speed for egg hatching is 7.5 miles per hour. The data for egg hatching is updated every 4 minutes in the game. Be sure to travel in straight lines when attempting to hatch an egg. Also make sure to stop for at least 1 minute if possible, before retracing your steps.
Egg Hatching – Use your incubators wisely
The orange infinite incubator will never expire and you can use it infinite times, but the blue incubators can only be used 3 times each. Generally 90% of the eggs that you receive from pokestops are 2km and 5km eggs, and 10% 10km eggs. The higher the distance, the better chances you have of hatching a super rare Pokemon. You can’t just ignore your 2 and 5 km eggs and hatch 10 km eggs, though, because you can only have 9 eggs at a time in storage, and eggs can’t be deleted. Use your infinite incubator for 2km eggs (and 5km if you have no 2km eggs). Only use the limited use incubators for 10km eggs (or 5km eggs if you do not have any 10km eggs).
How to get an Egg Incubator
You start off with the infinite incubator, but receive limited incubators as you progress in level. You will get 1 egg incubator at level 10, 1 at level 15, 2 at level 20, 1 at level 25, 3 at level 30, and 4 at level 40.
Low distance eggs hatch good Pokemon too (Pikachu, Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Magikarp from 2km eggs, and Growlithe, Abra, Bellsprout, and Exeggcute from 5km eggs) so you’re not hatching them for nothing. Every egg hatched gives you experience and candy, so if you are lucky enough to hatch the pokemon listed above from your 2km or 5km eggs, you are doing well.
Egg Hatching – When to Incubate an Egg
Pokemon Eggs are the best way to acquire high level Pokemon, Rare Pokemon, and High IV Pokemon. If you are new to the game and just reading this. Try to save your 10km eggs until after level 20. If you open a good 10km egg before level 20, the candy included with the egg, plus the level of the Pokemon won’t be enough to compete in gyms, and will take more candy and stardust to fully evolve in the future.
Skip the Egg Hatching Animation
When the “Oh?” message pops up, you can pinch inwards as if you were zooming in on a map. By pinching the screen you will cancel the animation for the egg hatching. You can then check your pokemon journal to see what hatched from the egg.
