New Pokemon have finally come to Pokemon Go!
The game’s developer, Niantic, announced that from today, players will be able to hatch Pichu, Togepi, and many other Gen 2 Pokemon from eggs.
Babe Pokemon now hatch from eggs, and it’s expected that the latest update adds a number of new Pokemon to the mix, including Iggylbuff, Elekid and Magby.
While this update doesn’t introduce the full Gen II lineup, it does add a unique and engaging new way to find and unlock new Pokemon.
In this guide, we’ll teach you how to catch Elekid, Smoochum, Pichu, Togepi, Igglybuff, Magby and Cleffa.
Where Do I Find Eggs?
You can find eggs to hatch new Pokemon from any PokeStop.
Once there, you’ll occasionally be able to pick up a new egg. Also on offer are Pokeballs and potions.
How Do I Hatch Eggs?
You’ll need an incubator, which you’ll have from when you first start the game.
You can use this incubator to hatch an infinite number of eggs, but it’s ideal that you buy more from the Pokemon Go shop so that you can have multiple eggs incubating at once. That way, your chances of landing a special Pokemon increases tenfold, compared to simply sitting and waiting for one egg at a time.
To hatch an egg, go into your “Pokemon” tag. From there, select your desired egg from the “Eggs” tab on the top right. Simply select that egg to start incubating, and walk the recommended distance to hatch it. See the walking rates below.
Eggs And Distances
Each new baby Pokemon hatches at a different distance rate. Here’s what we know so far:
- Igglybuff – 2km eggs
- Cleffa – 2km eggs
- Pichu – 5km eggs
- Togepi – 5km eggs
- Magby – 10km eggs
- Elekid – 10km eggs
- Smoochum – 10km eggs
