Eggs are a feature in Pokémon GO that allows users to hatch Pokémon by walking. Eggs can be obtained at PokéStops, where they have a small chance to appear. There are three different types of Eggs: 2km, 5km, and 10km. Hatching an Egg will provide 100x Experience Points for the kilometers walked and possibly 500 additional Experience Points if it is a new Pokémon. Hatching an Egg will provide a varying amount of candies of the type of Pokémon hatched, plus ten times the amount of stardust as you got candies.
To hatch an egg, the user must place it inside an Egg Incubator. Once the egg is inside the incubator, it simply requires the user to walk around in order to increase kilometers walked. It is required that the app is open in order to register the kilometers that are walked, you can, however, use the battery saver mode, which lets you turn the phone upside down to turn off the display without stopping the app (this feature does not work with phones that lack a built-in gyroscope). The app does not count movement that is above 10km/h.
When an account is created, trainers are given a single orange Egg Incubator that has unlimited uses. The user can obtain more Egg Incubators through in-game purchases or level-up rewards. These Egg Incubators are blue and have three usages.
Hatching one of these eggs will reward you with 200 EP and about 7-15 candy of the pokémon you hatched, plus 10 times the stardust of the candy you got.
Hatching one of these eggs will reward you with 500 EP and about 10-21 candy of the Pokémon you hatched, plus 10 times the stardust of the candy you got.
Hatching one of these eggs will reward you with 1000 EP and about 16-32 candy of the pokémon you hatched, plus 10 times the stardust of the candy you got.
