As you explore the world and search for pokemon in Pokemon GO, you can also hatch eggs. Hatching Eggs grant the opportunity to catch certain Pokémon, with a few different types of eggs available. Depending on the distance required to hatch an egg, it has the possibility of containing a certain selection of Pokémon. In this Pokemon GO Egg Graphics Guide, we have divided all the different Pokémon that can be obtained through the egg hatches in Pokémon GO. Now that Gen 4 has been added, there are some new faces on some of the eggs. As such, we’ve updated this list to include Pokemon GO Gen 4 Egg Hatches. With the new year upon us, we’ve made sure this guide is up-to-date for 2019.

Pokémon GO Double Candy Hatching Egg and Stardust
There is currently a mini event in Pokémon Go. For the entire week starting January 7, egg-hatching trainers will receive double Andy and Stardust. Better to get out there to hatch eggs before this bonus expires!
To help you get the most out of every egg you earn in Pokémon GO, we’ve included some tips below. They range from getting the most out of your incubators to what each distance could mean for potential Pokémon housed in them.
- To begin the egg hatching process, start by placing an egg in an incubator. Your eggs can be found in the Eggs tab of the Pokémon panel. Touch an egg to select it, then press Start Incubation. Select an incubator to place the egg. The egg will appear inside the incubator every time you go to the Egg tab until it hatches.
- Each egg requires the player to travel a certain distance with the egg in an incubator for the egg to hatch. You should also keep the app open during this process for the game to read your movement. Note that this cannot be done if the player is traveling at certain speeds, which means that driving or traveling by train will not speed up the process. The player must move at or near the pace for the egg to hatch. Some players have found that biking, rollerblading, and skateboarding work too.
- New Pokémon can be discovered by searching populated places or by hatching them from eggs. At the beginning of Pokémon Go, players are given an egg incubator that has unlimited uses. They are used to hatch eggs while walking. Temporary incubators can also be purchased using coins in the Shop tab, but these incubators only last a couple of uses.
- Incubators can only hold one egg at a time, so you really won’t need multiple incubators unless you want to hatch multiple eggs at once. Players can collect Pokémon Eggs by registering at PokéStops. Eggs are not guaranteed at every PokeStop, but you will receive a lot if you stop by PokéStops regularly.
- The travel distance indicated under each egg determines the possible rarity of the Pokémon that can hatch from that egg. The travel distance of an egg can be between 2, 5 and 10 kilometers. The shorter the required travel distance for an egg, the more likely a common Pokémon will emerge when it hatches. Rarer Pokémon tend to require more steps. We’ve listed the types of Pokémon you can expect from each egg based on travel distance, and we’ve included a handy table from Serebii.net for visual reference.
Here are some of the Pokémon you can get from a 2km egg:
Here are some of the Pokémon you can expect from 5km eggs:
7K Eggs were introduced as part of the Gifts, Trade and Friends update earlier this year. They are exclusive to Gifts, and have a small chance to hatch Pokémon in Alola form. We’ve included a list of Pokémon that you can hatch from 7K eggs below. Since Gen 4 baby pokemon has just been added as well, we’ve included them below.
- Alolan meowth
- Alolan Diglett
- Alolan sandshrew
- Alola Vulpix
- Alolan Geodude
- Alolan Grimer
We found the following pokemon when hatching 10 km eggs:
Since egg hatching involves walking anyway, consider putting a few eggs in incubators whenever you plan to go out in search of Pokémon or PokéStops. Initially, your inventory can only hold nine eggs at a time, so be sure to keep hatching a few to get new Pokémon and clear space for more eggs.
Niantic just added a ton of adorable Baby Pokémon to Pokémon GO. Magby, Wynaut, and Togepi hatch from 5K eggs now, so get out there and start walking!
