How to use Eggs on Pokémon GO

How do I get the eggs?

Eggs are one of the rewards you get for visiting Pokestops and are one of the best objects for leveling up your Pokémon trainer.

Getting them is simple: get close to a Pokestop, tap on the symbol when you are close enough to it and then spin the symbol until you get all of the rewards. Doing this will normally get you Pokeballs and incense, but if you’re lucky you’ll also get eggs.

Pokémon Go Egg

How do I use the eggs?

The first thing you have to do is tap on the Pokeball at the bottom of your screen, open the list of and then swipe right to find your eggs.

To start the incubation process, all you have to do is tap on the egg. After that you have to walk a certain distance (the distance needed is shown below the egg) to make the egg hatches

To do all of this, the app must be open (so be sure to charge your phone) and above all you cannot cheat. Don’t even think about driving or taking a bus to avoid walking. The good thing is that you don’t have to walk this distance all at once, so you can do it over several plays and even on different days.

How much do I need to walk for each egg?

Over a mile is the minimum distance per egg and it will take you around half an hour to do it at a moderate pace. The next Pokémon egg category will require about three miles of walking and takes between 45 minutes and an hour to do.

Incubators and Pokémon Go Eggs

The best Pokémon eggs require roughly 6 miles of walking for incubation and at least 2 hours to do. So keep your battery fully charged and consider even carrying around some portable batteries for your phone.

The big question: what kind of Pokémon will I get?

As you can imagine, depending on the distance you walk, the Pokémon you’ll encounter will be more and more rare. So if an egg requires you to walk 10 kilometers, you can expect to have a very rare Pokémon. Here’s a complete list of the Pokémon you can get according to the distance you walk.
