Niantic just released the gen 2 baby Pokemon last December. Yes, the baby Pokemon are adorable and cute but it seems it also affects some Pokemon that are already available in the game. Ever since the appearance of the baby Pokemon, many Pokemon Go players are reporting that the evolved form of the new baby Pokemon no longer hatching from eggs.
What Happened To The Evolved Pokemon?
There is no official statement from Niantic about what happened to the evolved form of the baby Pokemon. And so, the Silph Road research team conducted an investigation into these reports. The research focuses mainly on the hatching rate of the baby Pokemon including Magby, Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Togepi, Smoochum and Elekid.
The result of the research was pretty surprising. Out of 1,621 eggs, not a single evolved form of the baby Pokemon was hatched. Before the release of the baby Pokemon, the Silph Road is already in the middle of egg hatching research.
Region-Locked Pokemon Was Also Affected
Aside from the evolved form of the baby Pokemon, the region-exclusive Pokemon were also affected. These includes Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Tauros, and Mr. Mime. We know that that this region-exclusive Pokemon can be hatched in an egg but with the release of the baby Pokemon, you are no longer be able to hatch one.
The Silph Road research team clarified that their research about the region-locked Pokemon was not final since hatching a region-exclusive Pokemon is extremely rare. In the other hand, hatching rate of each Pokemon is regularly changing. So, it is possible that there will be a new hatch will be uncovered these coming months.
