One of the most reliable ways to get your hands on new Pokemon in Pokemon Go is through egg hatching. But what Pokemon can you expect from each type of eggs?
In Pokemon Go, Pokemon Eggs are rewarded randomly to the player through visiting Pokestops throughout the world or being given gifts by your friends. Hatching eggs is a great way to farm candy and actually has a good chance of providing better Pokemon with better stats than you might find out in the wild. Some of the rarer, best Pokemon in Pokemon Go are most easily obtained through hatching eggs, which is handy. If a hatching Pokemon has a shiny form in the game, they too can hatch from eggs, by the way.
Pokemon Eggs are a mystery draw: you have no idea what you’re going to hatch until it hatches, though there are different types of egg in the game, which gives you a broad idea of what to expect in terms of both hatch time and the potential Pokemon inside. Listing off an egg chart of all the Pokemon that can hatch from each type of egg is one of the purposes of this page. But first, let’s talk about how eggs work in more detail.

Pokemon Go Egg Hatching: getting eggs, hatching eggs and speeding up hatching
As we mention above, Pokemon Eggs can be obtained in Pokemon Go through Pokestops, gifts from friends, defeating Leaders in battle, and adventure sync. The egg types are as followed, named after how far you must travel to hatch them: 2km, 5km, 7km, 10km, 11km, and 12km.
Most Pokemon Eggs are obtained through simply going to Pokestops and swiping them, as with other items. Some eggs are different, however. 7km eggs can only be obtained from gift packages sent by friends. Both 5km and 10km eggs can drop through Adventure Sync – but Adventure Sync eggs have a different hatch pool than the standard versions of these same eggs. The 12km ‘Strange Egg’ is a random drop from defeating a Team Go Rocket leader in battle, so long as you have enough space in your egg inventory.
You can only carry 9 Pokemon eggs at once – if you have 9 and find one at a Pokestop, you’ll be forced to leave it behind. None will drop from gifts at all if your egg inventory is full. You’ve been warned.
Once you have Pokemon Eggs, you hatch them by putting them into incubators – just touch an egg and then choose an Incubator to put it in. You’ve got one unlimited incubator that has endless uses (this is the orange one), and this incubator is best used to hatch those fast-hatching 2km eggs. You can buy other types of Incubator or get them as rewards – they have three limited uses, after which they’ll break. The regular Incubator (blue) hatches at normal speed, while the Super Incubator (purple) hatches 1.5 times faster – though some special events have increased these speeds further.
In order to hatch, all you need to do is walk with them in the incubator. Pokemon Go needs to be open, but you should consider turning on battery saving mode before slipping your phone into your pocket. You can also turn on Adventure Sync, which uses your phone’s built-in location tracking to feed information back to Pokemon Go. Egg hatching is also where the Pokemon Go Plus comes most in handy – you can use it to actually fully lock your phone and walk around while still racking up distance for Pokemon Go’s egg hatching – which in turn will save you a lot of battery.
Once you’ve walked the distance indicated by the egg name, a Pokemon will emerge. As you’d expect, rarer Pokemon come out of longer-distance eggs. Keep in mind if you’re cycling or riding as a passenger in a car that Pokemon Go only seems to track the distance traveled towards your egg hatching if you’re traveling at slower speeds – around 10mph or less.
Here’s what Pokemon can hatch from each egg type, listed in Pokedex order for each egg type. We’ll do our best to keep it up to date with patches and changes, which come in line with the season (Currently the Season of Legends) and other ongoing in-game events, which this month is most pressingly the 2021 Easter Event, which adjusts 5km egg hatches:
