For those who want to complete their Poké Dex in Pokémon Go, you have to go out of your way to locate Pokémon from all over the world. They won’t all be available in the same location, and some of them are region-specific. Other Pokémon require you to hatch them through eggs, which means you not only have to do a lot of walking, but you have to be pretty lucky to hatch them.

Pawniard is one of these Pokémon. They were introduced alongside An Inter-egg-sting Development, and the big event also introduced a brand new red egg, more commonly called Strange Eggs. You won’t receive these eggs by spinning Poké Stops or Gym discs, or even by obtaining gifts from friends in the game. Instead, the only way to obtain a red egg is by defeating one of the three Team Rock leaders: Sierra, Cliff, or Arlo. You need to make sure that before you attempt to challenge them to a battle that you have a free egg slot available in your inventory, or you won’t receive one.

Once you have the red egg in your inventory, you can place it inside any of your available incubators to work towards hatching it. The base walking requirement is 12-kilometers, which is the longest amount you can go for a single egg in Pokémon Go. Make sure you bring your walking shoes to reach it.
