A new type of poke-egg is now on Pokémon Go. Which is only exclusive to Team Go Rocket Leader fights.

The strange eggs are now on Pokémon go. And these eggs are property of team go rocket leaders.

Spark, team Instinct leader is leading an investigation to learn more about the new 12 km eggs.

In this event, it features new shadow Pokémon, a chance to catch mewtwo, chances for go rocket grunt, and leader lineups along with a new poke egg type.

New Eggs & 1/4 Distance Hatch

Players must defeat a team go rocket leader to get a strange egg. To hatch the egg you must walk 12km. But first you’ll need space in your egg inventory before you battle Sierra, Cliff, or Arla in order to get a strange egg.

Even after the event the strange eggs will be available in game.

So, according to Spark’s early research the following poison and dark type Pokémon can be hatched from the eggs:

  • Larvitar
  • Scraggy
  • Trubish
  • Vullaby
  • Pawniard
  • Deino

Any of the eggs that are placed in the incubator during this event will need 1/4 the normal walking distance to hatch. The strange eggs will require 12km in order to hatch. Which’ll be reduced to 3km if incubated during the event.

The following poison and dark Pokémon will appear more often in the wild:

  • Spinarak
  • Houndour
