Now that the new update has landed, fans are now curious about the Pokemon GO Gen 2 eggs. The developers released 80 new Pokemon, and some of them are bound to appear in the game’s eggs. As most players know, there are three types of eggs — 2km, 5km and 10km — each one having specific creatures.
Thankfully, active players have begun hatching eggs and have found out some of the Pokemon in them. Said players have submitted these tips in the always helpful Silph Road subreddit, which has become a useful fan thread. With 80 more Pokemon to catch, the creatures should keep fans busy before the next batch arrives in the game.
Here are some of the creatures that will appear in the Pokemon GO Gen 2 eggs, thanks to the update. It’s worth noting that the baby Pokemon last December can still be hatched from these eggs. Without further ado, here are some of the various Pokemon you can get from each egg type in the game.
- 2km Eggs: Misdreavus, Togepi, Aipom, Abra, Slugma, Remoraid
- 5km Eggs: Tyrogue, Magby, Smoochum, Elekid, Growlithe, Phanpy, Shuckle, Qwilfish, Natu, Stantler, Girafarig
- 10km Eggs: Larvitar, Pineco, Dratini, Mareep. Sudowoodo, Skarmory, Gligar
Interestingly enough, some fans pointed out that baby Pokemon Magby used to be a 10km egg hatchling. Seems like the Pokemon GO Gen 2 update altered some of the egg hatchings quite a bit, which is odd. Then again, one could argue that it makes the game more unpredictable, and that might help keep the title alive.
Hatching New Things
While the hype around the game has faded, the Pokemon GO Gen 2 eggs prove that Niantic is committed. The company could have given up when hype for the game went down, but they’re sticking to their guns. If the company continues updating the game at this rate, we might see a new batch of Pokemon every year.
Still, with 80 Pokemon, this should keep the loyal fans busy until the next batch of monsters pop up, whenever that is. Unlike the first generation, it doesn’t seem like there are any Pokemon that are exclusive to certain countries, though that can change. Add new mechanics like easier ball throwing and berry types, it’s clear that this is a top-notch update for the game.
Pokemon GO is available now on iOS and Android devices. The game is a free download but also has in-app purchases for special items.
