What do egg groups do?
Top Voted AnswerFrom: Snoopy44291 4 years ago
The egg groups are....
Well, you usually breed a male Blaziken with a female Blaziken, or with a Ditto, right?
If you find a Pokemon of the same egg group, they can breed, like a male Blaziken with a female Lucario.
When breeding between two kinds of Pokemon, they can learn attacks that they normally wont learn. Like the Lucario and Blaziken that I said before, they breeded, I got the egg, and when it hatched, I obtained a Riolu, that learned Blaze kKck and Sky Uppercut.
Those moves are called "Egg Moves", in other words, the attacks that the Pokemon can learn only through breeding.
Here you will see the Pokemon and their Egg Group:
Go to the bottom of the text (in the link, not here) and click where it says "Breeding Section", select the Egg Group you want to check, and the list of the Pokemon that are in that Egg Group will be displayed.
Also, to check the Egg Moves, just pick your Pokemon in the Pokedex
(in the same link, but this time, in the top, where it says "FRLG" for Kanto Pokemon, "GSC" for Johto, "RSE" for Hoenn adn "DP" for Sinnoh, click and choose your Pokemon),
when the Pokemon data is displayed click where it says "Egg Moves", the Pokemon that you choosed and the attacks it can learn (well, the Pokemon that will hatch from the Egg) through breeding. If you still dont understand it, the other pokemon must know an attack that is compatible with the one you want to breed. For example, Blaziken can breed with a Camerupt and the egg will learn Rock Slide (when it hatches), but he will not learn Magnitude because they are not compatible.
Also, TM moves can be taught through breeding with another kind of Pokemon (well, Im not sure, but a friend says that has an Eevee that knows Earthquake, I think he breeded with a Pokemon of the same Egg Group that learned it through a TM).
Well, I hope this was usefull.

Snoopy44291 is right with one exception: Eevee can't learn Earthquake.
