Hatching Eggs...

#1Sakura_MartinezPosted 11/3/2013 3:34:11 AM
How long do they usually take? Because I have this one egg that I have practically taken everywhere now and it still says it's not close to hatching. Usually the eggs I get from breeding only takes me a two-way trip from Lumiose to the town with the windmill (forgot its name).

Forgot to mention that it's infected with a Pokerus...does that constitute to it taking a long time to hatch?

Im not sure but i think its anywhere from 1000 to 10,000 steps for it to hatch depending on the pokemon and by the way you can carry more than one egg at a time. If you pay attention to the man that gives you the egg sometimes he's facing the fence and sometimes he's facing the road/path when he is facing the road he has an egg if he's facing the fence he has no egg. Also if you have a pokemon with flame body in your party it helps hatch eggs faster. A pokemon that has flame body that i know of is fletchling. Also i recommend having a bike, stocking up on eggs and just riding back and forth on the path outside the day care

Thanks for the tips! I guess I'll do some research about that ability you mention. I didn't think using the bicycle would count towards the step-count, so I have just been walking back and forth, lol. XD

OK here's what you need to do to have that egg hatched in no time.
Have a Fletchinder or talon flame in your party for the flame body ability that halves the amount of time needed to hatch an egg.
Go to the center of Lumoise city (where the eiffel tower looking thing is), get a bank card or a credit card, licence, any kind of similar card, and jam it in the side of your movement stick so that you start circling around in circles nonstop, leave it for maybe 2 minutes or so, and your egg will hatch, ive been using this method all day and hatched at least 60 eggs in 8 hours.
Don't worry, the card in the side of the joystick thingimie does no damage whatsoever, its hard to explain how to do it but just try it and you will figure out what i mean.

Using a pokemon with flame body helps, as the posters above said. There is also a hatching o-power you can get if you have max style in Lumiose city. I believe they stack, when I use both my eggs hatch pretty darn fast. I like to go to Lumiose city, in the middle outside the tower and ride my bike in a big circle outside. It's easy to just hold the d-pad down and watch youtube or something. The pokemon Litwick has the Flame Body ability. It's relatively easy to get your hands on in the GTS. I have an extra with Flame body if you can't find one.

So, how long DOES it take for an Eevee egg to hatch (since that's what I'm breeding, Eevees with Pokerus)? How many steps (just so I can have an average of it)?

Im pretty sure pokerus cant affect eggs since it need to be hatched to be able to recieve pokerus
