If you’re still addicted to the worldwide phenomena Pokemon Go, here at ValueWalk we’ve been doing our best to help you and other players of the game since it first launched. Today we have an egg chart which will help you when trying to hatch 10km, 5km, and 2km eggs; it will work for both iOS and Android.
One of the most important parts of the Pokemon Go game is the mechanics surrounding hatching eggs. While hatching eggs is a fundamental element of the game, it is also one of the reasons people get on their feet and become mobile, with eggs hatching depending on how far players have traveled while using the app. Basically, the further you walk, the more superior the Pokemon will be when they hatch, so the game promotes not only fun but also a healthy lifestyle.
The idea of having to walk to hatch an egg in Pokemon Go is a simple mechanic of the game, although it is often misunderstood with many players feeling confused as to how it works and what the rewards are. So here is everything you need to know. As a player, you can unlock different Pokemon depending on the distance you move.
At the moment there are three tiers of eggs, 2km, 5km, and 10km, and the further you move, the better the Pokemon that hatch will be.
In order to make everything as clear as possible, I have included a chart below which shows you what to expect to receive depending on how far you have walked. I am positive that it will make for interesting reading for those of you who like to embark upon long walks from time to time.
One important thing you need to understand is that the mechanics of this part of the game, i.e., the tracking of player movement, can’t be gamed — that is, unless you are cheating. At the moment Pokemon Go does not track steps. Instead, it monitors the location of when an app is opened and launched. This means using a treadmill or walking in circles will not help you hatch eggs because you will not have traveled far enough from your starting point. In fact, it is in straight lines where the greater distances are gathered.
You can’t just jump in your car either because Pokemon Go uses distance and the time it takes to travel to determine if you’re being genuine or not.
