It’s not always the way to go, but there’s something to be said for keeping expectations low. Pokemon GO is a great example. After the massive frenzy it created upon release last summer, Niantic made only small updates the rest of 2016. So when 80 Pokemon from the Johto region finally joined the game recently, it was like the Greatest Thing Everâ„¢.
We kid because we care. In any case, most of the Gen 2 Pokemon can be encountered out in the wild, and you’ve no doubt seen that your normal crew of Pidgey and Weedle joined by the likes of Sentret and Spinarak. But you can also find some of the Johto region Pokemon in eggs as well.
Which ones? That’s what we’re here to break down for you. Credit for the leg work goes to the devoted peeps on Reddit and especially the minds behind Silph Road, who have hatched a ton of Pokemon Eggs to give the world more insight into what’s inside.
Here are the new Pokemon you can expect to find inside eggs of each distance:
Note that the original Pokemon found in eggs are still there as well, and in greater overall numbers than the newcomers. That suggests that you’re still more likely to hatch something you’ve seen before than something new unless Niantic has tilted the numbers heavily in favor of the Johto crowd, but time will tell if that’s the case.
In any case, as the weather turns warmer, new Pokemon to find in eggs is a great reason to get out walking again and remembering why you bothered learning how many blocks were in a kilometer in your neighborhood last year.
