News - Pokémon GO’s ‘Strange Eggs’ Will Have You Walking Further Than Ever Before

Pokémon GO’s ‘Strange Eggs’ Will Have You Walking Further Than Ever Before

Pokemon GO Strange Eggs

For only the second time since the app’s launch back in 2016, Pokémon GO has received a new type of egg that can be used for hatching specific types of Pokémon. Introducing ‘Strange Eggs’.

These new eggs join the already-existing 2km, 5km, 7km, and 10km varieties, topping them all with a walking distance requirement of 12km to hatch. Ironically, these long-distance eggs have been introduced just weeks after developer Niantic decided to strip away features which were in place to help players stuck indoors because of the current pandemic – including the half hatch distance modifier for eggs.

The 12km eggs can be used to hatch Poison-type Pokémon, Dark-type Pokémon, and Pokémon that acquire one of those types via evolution, and currently serve as the only way to obtain some of the app’s newest arrivals such as Pawniard.

A welcome quarter hatch distance modifier is currently in place to celebrate the arrival of the new eggs, although this benefit will disappear starting from 19th October. The modifier is one of several things currently happening inside the game as part of a week-long Strange Eggs event:

– Strange Eggs have appeared in Pokémon GO! According to Spark’s early research, the following Poison-type Pokémon, Dark-type Pokémon, and Pokémon that acquire one of those types via Evolution can hatch from these Eggs: Larvitar, Scraggy, Trubbish, and Vullaby—though there may be even more!

– Defeat a Team GO Rocket Leader to receive a Strange Egg, and walk 12 km to hatch it. You’ll need to have space in your Egg inventory before your battle with Sierra, Cliff, or Arlo in order to receive a Strange Egg. Strange Eggs will continue to be available in Pokémon GO after the event ends.

– Eggs placed in Incubators during the event will require one-quarter the normal walking distance to hatch.

– For the first time since March, new Team GO Rocket Special Research will be available! Join Professor Willow as he and the team leaders investigate Team GO Rocket’s involvement with Strange Eggs, culminating in a battle with Giovanni himself! This is the last Team GO Rocket Special Research in 2020. If you currently have the The Shadowy Threat Grows Special Research from earlier this year, you’ll need to complete it first before you can obtain this new Special Research.

– Poison-type and Dark-type Pokémon will be appearing more often in the wild! Look forward to encountering Spinarak, Houndour, Poochyena, Gulpin, Stunky, Purrloin and more.

– Team GO Rocket will be more active than usual! Keep an eye out for Team GO Rocket taking over more PokéStops and Team GO Rocket balloons appearing more often.

– Take a snapshot for a surprise!

– Team GO Rocket Leader avatar items are now available in the shop. Perhaps you could use these avatar items to infiltrate and investigate Team GO Rocket! GO forth, Trainer!

To find these new eggs, you’ll need to defeat a Team GO Rocket Leader. Have you already managed to get your hands on some? Let us know in the usual place.
