Egg groups are decided by biological traits, which overall serves to allow Pokémon which are biologically similar to breed. However, there are some oddities which have been noted within egg groups: for example, the Field egg group's standards are particularly broad, and many seemingly illogical pairings can be noted within it, such as {{p|Skitty}} [[HSOWA|and]] {{p|Wailord}}.
Egg groups are preserved along evolutionary lines; {{p|Ralts}}, {{p|Kirlia}}, {{p|Gardevoir}}, and {{p|Gallade}} are all in the {{egg|Amorphous}} group, while {{p|Pikachu}} and {{p|Raichu}} are in the {{egg|Field}} and {{egg|Fairy}}. [[Baby Pokémon]] are the only Pokémon besides {{p|Shedinja}}, {{p|Nidorina}}, and {{p|Nidoqueen}} that are not in the same group as their evolutionary relatives; {{p|Nidorina}} and {{p|Nidoqueen}} are both in the {{egg2|Undiscovered}}, while {{p|Shedinja}} is in the {{egg2|Mineral}}, despite having no gender, and,thus as such, requiringrequires {{p|Ditto}} to breed.
Egg groups have only been canonically mentioned in [[Pokémon Stadium 2]], where they are a part of [[Earl]]'s Pokémon Academy's extensive data banks, and [[Pokédex 3D]], where they are mentioned along with various other information about the Pokémon in question. They are also mentioned in various strategy guides.
