If Pokémon Wiki in Japanese doesn't use kanji for this, why should we use?

A '''Pokémon egg''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|ポケモン 卵|ポケモン たまご}}のタマゴ''' ''Pokémon egg'') is an object from which all Pokémon are known to hatch. An egg's shell will usually have a pattern that reflects the appearance of the Pokémon developing inside, though in the games this is not the case (likely to save space on the game media).
Pokémon eggs are produced by {{pkmn|breeding}} two Pokémon of a compatible [[egg group]] and opposite gender together, and will contain by default the lowest species in the evolutionary line of the mother. According to a girl in [[Solaceon Town]], where one of many [[Pokémon Day Care]]s are located, no one has ever seen a Pokémon lay an egg, and so it is not confirmed that this is how they appear. No alternate explanation for their creation is offered, however, and most assume that the details are not gone into to keep the games appropriate for all audiences.
