Since the release of the Gen 2 baby Pokemon last December, have you able to hatch an evolved and regional Pokemon? Pikachu, Taurus, Magmar and more are reportedly missing from any hatching eggs.
Let’s refresh what happened last year. The Gen 2 baby Pokemon was released on December 12, 2016 and so far this is one of the most anticipated updates. However, it looks like the release of the Gen 2 Pokemon has caused the disappearance of some Pokemon that can be hatched in the game.
No Evolved & Regional Pokemon Hatched
The release of Gen 2 Pokemon really makes a big impact on the players and the game. In fact, the Gen 2 Pokemon is one of the reasons why Niantic completely removed Pidgey and Rattata from the egg chart. The news is really good, however, there are reports that the hatching rate for the evolved Pokemon of the newly released Gen 2 Pokemon were affected or decreased.
This report pushed the Silph Road research team to conduct if the claim was true. According to the Silph Road research team:
After collecting 1,621 eggs since the baby update, two findings have emerged:
- No Silph Researcher has hatched an evolved form of a baby Pokemon after December 12th
- No Silph Researcher has hatched any regional Pokemon during this study
The research started when Niantic announced the removal of Pidgey and Rattata from the egg chart. It was on a midway when Niantic later announced the release of the Gen 2 baby Pokemon. After the two announcements, things have changed which affects the evolved and regional Pokemon hatching rate.
What do you think about the recent research? Have you been able to hatch an evolved Pokemon of the Gen 2 baby Pokemon and some regional Pokemon? If so, please leave us a comment below.
