'Pokmon GO' guide: How to get the new baby Pokmon


Trainers are flocking back to the hit ARG “Pokmon GO” as Niantic introduced the seven new baby Pokmon in their game. However, trainers will need to work hard in order to add them to their collection.

According to Game Rant, unlike Ditto who is known for pretending to be low-tier Pokmon on the overworld, the new baby Pokmon can only be obtained through hatching eggs. The new ones added include Clefa, Elekid, Igglybuff, Magby, Pichu, Smoochum and Togepi.

Essentially, the new baby Pokmon are added to the list of Pokmon that players can hatch in the game. As such, even if players are hatching Pokmon Eggs, it does not mean that they will hatch a baby Pokmon. Regardless, it should be worth noting that the baby Pokmon species are divided into different egg tiers.

For those who want the fastest rewards, Clefa and Igglybuff are available from 2km eggs. As for the 5km eggs, Pichu and Togepi can be possibly hatched from it. The 10km variants will hatch the rest of the new baby Pokmon, which are Elekid, Magby, and Smoochum. Thankfully, the baby Pokmon hatched from eggs evolved immediately, even Togepi who needs to 50 candies in order to evolve to Togetic.

It is important to know, however, that baby Pokmon will only hatch from eggs obtained from the update that added the eggs. As such, previously obtained eggs from Pokestops will not have them. Trainers who want to hatch baby Pokmon will do well if they hatch their previous eggs first.

However, some of the players expressed their frustration for this update, according to News Everyday. After all, what most players want are new Pokmon in the wild, not new hatchable baby Pokmon. Some players also want Player-to-Player battles as well as trading.

“Pokmon GO” is now available for Android and iOS devices.
