Eggs hatching?

How does an egg hatch? XP, time, travel distance?

Assuming nothing has changed from the other games, the amount of steps you take. Pokemon with Magma Armour or Flame Body can reduce the amount it takes, too iirc.

does being on a bike count as a step?

Yes. In fact, it's faster than running, as you can do more 'steps' in the same amount of time.

I personally hatched a bunch of eggs yesterday while running, on skates, and on the bike.

Can abilities that increase hatch rate be stacked? How much does it help the egg?

you can't stack, and the pokemon must be at the front of the party

it cuts the steps to hatch in half (roughly)

the pokemon with the ability just has to be in the party, it doesn't have to be in front. Also it cuts steps in half exactly, no egg has an odd number of steps to hatch IIRC so there is no 'roughly' involved

sorry if I sounded like a jerk about it, not my intention, just currently annoyed at rl stuff atm

If it's worth doing, it's worth over doing!
There is no kill like Overkill.

Steps are associated with a hidden 'Egg Counter' within the game that decides when the egg will hatch.

Magikarp (the fastest-hatching egg) hatches in about 1000 with said ability and about 1500 without.

Having multiple eggs in your party is also said to increase the steps needed. (not very noticeable)
