Pokémon GO players are now able to collect more Gen 3 Pokémon as many fan-favorite characters from the Hoenn region have been added to the game.
The update also means that more Pokémon have been added to eggs, but which Gen 3 Pokémon can be hatched?
Not all of the Gen 3 Pokémon planned to release in the game have arrived yet as this is a gradual rollout. However, Pokémon GO players have been able to figure out which Gen 3 characters in the game so far can be hatched from which type of egg.
Highlighted by the handy infographic below, the 2KM pool of eggs includes: Normal-type Pokémon Poochyena and Zigzagoon, Bug-type Pokémon Wurmple, Psychic-type Pokémon Spoink, and Poison-type Pokémon Gulpin.
The list of Gen 3 Pokémon available in 5KM eggs is far more substantial and includes: the three starter Pokémon, Torchic, Mudkip, Fighting-type Pokemon Makuhita, Grass-type Pokémon Seedot and Shroomish, Normal-type Pokémon Skitty, Normal and Fairy-type Pokémon Azurill, and Psychic-type Pokémon Wynaut. It should be noted that Wynaut and Azurill are egg exclusives and can only be caught via hatches. Duskull and Shuppet (the Ghost-type Pokemon introduced for Halloween) are also listed.
And finally, 10KM eggs contain Psychic and Fairy-type Pokémon Ralts and Normal-type Pokémon Slakoth. Sableye, another Ghost-type Pokémon from Halloween can also be hatched from 10KM eggs, notes the chart.
Gen 3 eggs have not been available for long but Pokémon GO players are already voicing their displeasure at the possible hatches. After Sableye was available plenty in the Halloween event, it’s frustrating to see the character take up space in the 10KM egg pool. No one wants to walk all that distance or use a super incubator only to find a Pokémon that they already have.
Moreover, players are disappointed to see that there are so many possible hatches from 5KM eggs. Pokémon GO players argue that the pool of possible hatches from 5KM eggs is already large enough. By adding more characters it makes the possible hatches even more varied, also lowering the odds of players hatching a Pokémon that they really want (i.e one of the new Gen 3 characters).
Niantic isn’t done introducing the Gen 3 Pokémon just yet, meaning that changes to the eggs could be on the cards. Hopefully, the developer will make the possible hatches a bit more evenly spread to save players from doing all of that walking for poor hatches.
