‘Pokemon Go’ Updates: Egg Hatching Chart Reveals Rare Gen 2 Pokemon Hatch Rate
Several months after Niantic launched "Pokemon Go," the popular mobile gaming app received a major update with the introduction of more than 80 characters. Recently, an avid gamer shared an updated egg hatching chart that revealed the chances that players can get rare Gen 2 Pokemon creatures from different eggs.
Hatching an in-game egg is one of the main gameplay components in "Pokemon Go." Since Niantic released the said mobile gaming app, the company has made several enhancements that included adjustments to the type of creatures that hatch from 2km, 5km and 10km eggs.
Given the deployment of Gen 2 Pokemon creatures, Niantic made some tweaks to the game's egg hatching system. Redditor Topottsel recently posted a new egg hatching chart on The Silph Road, that revealed the approximate percentage that players can get some of the new characters from various "Pokemon Go" in-game eggs.
For 2km eggs, the rarest Gen 2 Pokemon creature that players can get would be Misdreavus. The ghost-type creature has a hatch rate of 0.87 percent in "Pokemon Go" which means that players would likely find one Misdreavus in 115 eggs.
Meanwhile, "Pokemon Go" players can get seven rare Gen 2 Pokemon characters from 5km eggs. With a hatch rate of 0.62 percent, these creatures include Qwilfish, Dunsparce, Sneasel, Yanma, Girafarig, Wobbuffet, and Sneasel. For 10km eggs, Skarmony and Miltank are the two rarest creatures with a hatch rate of 2.57 percent.
Moreover, the egg hatching chart also listed the Pokemon creatures that will not emerge from "Pokemon Go" eggs. Gen 2 Pokemon such as Totodile, Cyndaquil and Chikorita can only be captured in the wild, while characters such as Meowth and Mankey will no longer come from in-game eggs.
In other news, "Pokemon Go" players can expect to see a new batch of Pokemon creatures added to the game. Niantic's CEO John Hawke told Germany's Wired, as cited by Pokemon Go Hub, that they are planning to deploy Mewtwo, Mew and the Legendaries Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos sometime this year.
"Pokemon Go" received the Gen 2 Pokemon update in mid-February. Niantic's mobile gaming app is available for Android and iOS devices.
