Egg Hatching Glitch
::Did you have any Pokémon with {{a|Magma Armor}} or {{a|Flame Body}} in either of your parties? If not, it may not even be a glitch, but an Easter egg (no pun intended), so that traded eggs hatch faster. --[[User:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#A70000">'''Snorlax'''</span>]][[User talk:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#0000A7">'''Monster'''</span>]] 01:23, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
:::...I use that all the time. But, no. I had just restarted my Platinum, so all that was in my party was my Turtwig. And I also didn't have one at the time in my Pearl game. Also, it wasn't half the steps. It hatched after 19 steps compared to the normal roughly 100 steps. And I've traded enough eggs to know that it doesn't affect hatch steps.--[[User:Goukazaru|Gou]] 04:33, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
It's normal. The egg rilies on a counter that is lowered every time a certain number of steps is done. When the counter reaches 0, egg hatches. Different Pokémon have different starting numbers (That's why Magikarp hatches fast whereas say Chimchar doesn't).
When you do a soft reset I would say that the number of steps required to lower the counter is reset to max. That's why the first time it took only 19 steps.
I hope this helps. [[User:OwnageMuch|OwnageMuch]] 06:44, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
