Pokemon GO Egg Distances Have Changed, Which Means The Way We Play The Game Might Change Too

Pokemon GO Egg Distances Changed

While everyone was out trying to catch Chanseys and Porygons for the Valentine’s Day event, Niantic pulled a sneaky move and made some pretty major changes to the way that Pokemon hatch from eggs. More specifically, Pokemon GO egg distances have changed, and 17 Pokemon have been moved from one egg group to another.

This isn’t the first time Pokemon GO egg distances have changed, but it is by far the largest shift we’ve seen to date, which has left some players speculating that it could all be a lead up to the full release of Gen 2.

The Pokemon that have moved from the 10km egg group to the 5km egg group are Onix, Pinsir, and Scyther. NOTE: Some players are reporting that Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee have been removed from the 10km list as well. This is not yet confirmed, and we will update this article when more information becomes available.

The Pokemon that have moved from the 5km egg group to the 2km egg group are Abra, Bellsprout, Diglett, Ekans, Exeggcute, Gastly, Goldeen, Krabby, Machop, Nidoran (M & F), Oddish, Slowpoke, and Venonat.

As some Reddit users have pointed out, this update will not change the likelihood of any one Pokemon hatching from a given egg. All this change will do is change the vessel in which the Pokemon is given to you. This is because when you obtain an egg, the Pokemon inside the egg was decided first, and then it was put into the corresponding egg afterwards.

This means we’re going to be getting many more 2km eggs than we did previously, which is not necessarily a bad thing. 2km eggs hatch faster than 5km or 10km eggs, meaning you’ll be able to hatch Pokemon faster than you did before the update.

But then on the other hand, if you’re conservative with your coins and your incubators, this might slow your hatching because you won’t want to waste your triple-use incubators on 2km eggs (which you will have more of thanks to the update), leading to more time wasted waiting to clear out the 2km eggs with your infinite-use incubator.

All in all, this has been a good update to the game. Pokemon that most players have already caught or hatched have been moved to the 5km or 2km egg group, which means that when you do find yourself a 5km or 10km egg, there’s a greater chance it will be a Pokemon that you actually want to hatch.

But what do you think about the egg distances changing? Do you think it was done in preparation for a full Gen 2 release? Or do you think it was just a random update that has nothing to do with the highly anticipated release of new Pokemon? Let me know what you think in the comments section below!

  69. So they updated the eggs…here is the trick…2k eggs drop nonstop. this will burn up incubators faster. They also moved 10ks to 5k, resulting in less stardust to use on rare pokemon to level them up. making people buy more incubators to burn off 2k/ 5k eggs. niantic didnt do us any favors…its all about getting more $$$ from players and not making it easier to to get a rare pokemon. My theory also explains why breeding isnt released. Niantic will lose control and $ if people can make their own eggs and hatch what they want. Now days folks need to keep grinding away in hopes of finding a 10k egg, as long as there is room in their inventory…
