Pokémon Go Hatching and Incubating Eggs

When you visit Pokéstop, sometimes you will find a Pokémon Egg along with the other items. These will be stored in your Egg Storage, not with your other items.

There are 3 types of eggs that can be collected, 2km, 5km, and 10km. Each type holds specific types of Pokémon for the distance needed to hatch them. Generally the longer the distance eggs hatch better Pokémon, but this depends on what Pokémon you have already, Egg Hatching Guide.

Pokémon Go Tips to Hatch Eggs

Tips for hatching eggs

  • Keep the Pokémon Go app open, Eggs won’t incubate when game in turned off.
  • Don’t travel too fast, the latest update has put the maximum speed to 10.5 km
    for hatching Eggs and Buddy Distance Candies.

Trick – Keep your app running as much as possible even when your at home
with your phone on the table, the GPS is constantly updating and will make your
trainer avatar gain some km’s even when you are not, on a good day I can gain
around 2km’s from this. Another way to Fast Track this is to switch between
apps, you will need to test how long you can go to another app before Pokémon Go
will close, sometimes the GPS will be very responsive to this and I have gained up
to 1km per hour from doing this, ( sometimes this works sometimes it won’t)
even turning the app on and off will usually add some km’s.
