Egg Incubator

An Egg Incubator in Pokémon GO

An Egg Incubator (Japanese: ふかそうち Incubator) is an item in Pokémon GO required to hatch Eggs. Every player starts off with one infinite-use Egg Incubator (Egg Incubator ∞). Players can obtain more limited-use Egg Incubators, which break after three uses, during gameplay or at the Shop. To hatch an Egg, the player can select an Egg from the Pokémon menu and tap the "Incubate" button. The user interface will show a list of all available incubators along with the number of uses it has left.

During the 2016 and 2017 Holiday events, players may obtain a single-use Egg Incubator, once per day, at the first PokéStop visited.

On August 2017, the Super Incubator was introduced. It is a limited-use Egg Incubator that hatch Eggs 50% faster, effectively reducing the distance by a third. Using a Super Incubator, the distances required to hatch an Egg are as follows:

  • 2 km → 1.33 km
  • 5 km → 3.33 km
  • 7 km → 4.67 km
  • 10 km → 6.67 km
  • 12 km → 8 km
