Pokémon Eggs are an important component when developingPokémon for competitive battles. When you breed a Pokémon, you have a lot ofcontrol over its moves, Ability, Nature, and individual strengths—all importantfactors when preparing a strong Pokémon.

To have an Egg appear in your game, you must leave two ofyour own Pokémon—one male, one female—at a Pokémon Day Care. In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, there are twoPokémon Day Cares—one on Route 117 just west of Mauville City, and the other atthe Battle Resort. In Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, the Pokémon Day Care is onRoute 7. If you leave the two Pokémon in the Day Care long enough, a PokémonEgg will appear. Producing an Egg is pretty easy to do, but there is one majorcondition—both of the Pokémon you leave need to be of the same Egg Group. There are 15 Egg Groups andevery Pokémon belongs to one. For example, some Pokémon are in the Mineral Group,such as Graveler, Porygon, and Baltoy. Egg Groups are often made up of Pokémonthat have similar bodies or live in similar places. Some Pokémon, such as allLegendary Pokémon, won”t produce Eggs at all. While you can develop a Pokémon Eggwith any two Pokémon in the same Egg Group, Pokémon Eggs will be discoveredmore quickly if the two Pokémon are of the same species or from differentTrainers.
Eventually, a Level 1 Pokémon will hatch from the Egg. APokémon that hatches from an Egg is often different from either of the Pokémonthat you left at the Pokémon Day Care. You can get a good idea of what toexpect by following some basic guidelines. First, the new Pokémon will be thesame species as the female Pokémon left at the Day Care, or its earliest pre-evolution (if it has one). For example, if youput a female Florges in the Day Care, the Egg you discover will be a Flabébé. The female Pokémon will also pass down itsPoké Ball to the Pokémon hatched from an Egg. You can sidestep Egg Groupmatching with the help of Ditto. When Ditto is paired with a Pokémon in the DayCare, the Pokémon that hatches from the Egg you find will be the same as (or anEvolution of) the paired Pokémon, whether it is male, female, or of unknowngender.
After you find two matched Pokémon and you”ve left them inthe Pokémon Day Care for a while, the Day-Care staff will tell you that an Egghas appeared, and they”ll give it to you as long as you have room in yourparty. To hatch a Pokémon Egg, you need to keep it in your party and carry itaround with you on your adventures for a certain amount of time. During thisperiod, it can”t be used in battle or learn any new moves—it basically justtakes up space. You can speed up the Egg-hatching process by putting onePokémon with either the Magma Armor or the Flame Body Ability in your party, andyou can also use the Breeding O-Power to further speed up the time it takes tohatch an Egg.
The moves the new Pokémon knows upon hatching are based onseveral factors. Some Pokémon learn Egg Moves,which are moves they wouldn”t know if you just found the Pokémon in the wild.Then, if there”s a level-up move that both the male and female Pokémon at theDay Care know, the Pokémon hatched from their Egg might learn it, too. Or, ifthe male Pokémon at the Day Care knows a TM or an Egg Move that the Egg canlearn, the new Pokémon might start with that move.
The Ability that your newly hatched Pokémon will have isdifficult to predict. If its species can have two possible Abilities, you won”tknow which one it has until it hatches. However, it”s more likely that theAbility of a Pokémon hatched from an Egg will be the same as the Ability of thefemale Pokémon left at the Day Care. Also, if the female Pokémon (or thenon-Ditto Pokémon) has a Hidden Ability, there”s a chance that the Egg willhave that Hidden Ability, too. Unlike with other Abilities, if you want an Eggto hatch with its Hidden Ability, the female Pokémon (or the non-Ditto Pokémon)must have the Hidden Ability, as well.
Natures are both less and more predictable. A Pokémon hatchedfrom an Egg has a greater-than-average chance of having the same Nature as thefemale Pokémon in the Day Care—but it could still have one of the 24 other possibleNatures. But if one of the Pokémon in the Day Care is holding an Everstone, anyEggs found in the Pokémon Day Care will have the same Nature as that Pokémon.Even individual strengths can be managed during the Egg process. If one of thePokémon in the Day Care is holding a Destiny Knot, the hatched Pokémon willinherit five individual strengths from its parents instead of the usual three.If you can get a Ditto with really good individual strengths, this can rapidlyimprove the stat potential of your newly hatched Pokémon.
The Everstone and Destiny Knot are both important items.Getting an Everstone in Pokémon X andPokémon Y is easy—wild Geodude,Graveler, and Roggenrola sometimes hold them, and a Scientist in Geosenge Townwill give you one. On the other hand, getting one in Pokémon Omega Ruby and PokémonAlpha Sapphire is a little more difficult, because these Pokémon aremore difficult to encounter. It”s hidden deep inside GraniteCave, so you”ll need the Dowsing Machine, the Mach Bike, and a Pokémon thatknows Flash to find it. However, if you have someSecret Pals, one of them might have the convenient skill Stone Searcher, which is likely to grant you an Everstone! Alternatively, in all four games, Inver might give youone as a reward for beating him soundly in one of his Inverse Battlechallenges.
You can get a Destiny Knot in Pokémon X and Pokémon Yfrom a maid in the hotel in Cyllage City. In Pokémon Omega Ruby and PokémonAlpha Sapphire, Lois and Hal might give you one after you battle them inSea Mauville—keep battling until they hand it over!
The key to developing great Pokémon from Eggs is finding theright Pokémon to put into the Pokémon Day Care. The same principles that wewent over in developing competitive Pokémon applyhere—using a Pokémon with the Synchronize Ability to catch a Pokémon with theNature you”re looking for, looking for Pokémon with high individual strengths,and having the right items to make sure these stats are passed down to the newPokémon.
Remember, when you”re searching for a Pokémon in the wild withthe Nature you want and at least a couple of individual strengths at their peakpotential, the DexNav is extraordinarily helpful. It lets you see informationabout Pokémon before you encounter them, saving you a lot of time. Look for a Pokémon with three stars under Potential,meaning it has the maximum possible individual strength in at least threestats. The DexNav will also start discovering Pokémon with Hidden Abilities, atrait you won”t ever find on a Pokémon via a simple encounter in the wild.(There”s also a greater chance the Pokémon you find will be Shiny the more you”vescanned it with the DexNav.)
Let”s say you”re looking to develop a Gardevoir. Its firstevolution, Ralts, is a common Pokémon found early in the Hoenn region of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. With the DexNavin Detector Mode, find as many Ralts as you can (you don”t need to defeatthem). The more you find, the more you”ll start detecting Ralts with maxpotential individual strengths for multiple stats and possibly the TelepathyHidden Ability (the Ability Trainers often prefer for competitive play).
You”ll need several of these Pokémon, including at least onemale and one female. You”ll want at least one Pokémon with a maximum individualstrength in each stat you want your future champion Pokémon to have, onePokémon with the desired Nature, and a female with your desired Ability. Youwon”t know which stats have max individual strengths until you have the Pokémonanalyzed by the Ace Trainer in the Battle Resort Pokémon Center if you”replaying Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire or in Kiloude City in Pokémon X or Pokémon Y.This person will tell you which stats have max individual strengths for one ofthe Pokémon in your party.
You”ll want one Pokémon with top individual strengths in atleast two or three stats, and another Pokémon with max individual strengths in differentstats. A perfect example would be having a male Ralts with, say, maximumDefense, Special Defense, and Speed individual strengths, and a female Raltswith max HP and Special Attack individual strengths, as well as the TelepathyHidden Ability and the Nature of your choice. (Gardevoir often doesn”t rely onAttack moves, so it”s a good stat to ignore.)
Once you”ve found two eligible Pokémon, it”s time to putthem in the Pokémon Day Care. It”s a good idea to start with a Pokémon that hasyour desired Nature and to give it an Everstone to pass down its Nature. Theother Pokémon should hold a Destiny Knot, ensuring that the Egg gets moreindividual strengths passed down from the Pokémon you place in the Day Care.Leave the two Pokémon in the Day Care long enough to discover multiple Eggs;you”ll probably use at least a couple of them again to tailor the maxindividual strengths over several generations of Pokémon. Your goal is tocontinue to hatch female Pokémon with as many max individual strengths as youcan, making it easier for that new Pokémon itself to pass down perfectindividual strengths to the next Egg.
Concentrate on the Hidden Ability and Nature of the femalefirst—you can develop your Pokémon”s individual strengths down the road moreeasily than you can incorporate these traits. Try to keep getting strongerfemale Pokémon, maintaining your desired Nature and Ability while using DestinyKnot to help pass down as many maximum individual strengths as possible. Onceyou get a female Pokémon with each of the max individual strengths of thePokémon you have in the Day Care, it”s time to catch a new male Pokémon to helppass down the remaining stats.
Eventually, you will have a female Pokémon that has five(or, if you”re really lucky, six) max individual strengths, plus the Nature andAbility that you prefer. It can be a bit of work, but you”ll be rewarded with aPokémon that is ready for top-level competition. Plus, the Pokémon you”ve beendiscovering will help you develop more Pokémon within their own Egg Group, sokeep them around. Male Pokémon will be especially valuable, as they can helppass down their individual strengths to different species within their EggGroup.
With some effort and a little bit of luck, soon you”ll havea full party of Pokémon that have been customized exactly how you want them.The next step is to train and prepare them for competitiveplay.
Good luck in becoming an elite Pokémon Trainer with properPokémon development and training!
