How To Hatch Eggs Faster In Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Hatching eggs in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet is a lengthy process.

Hatching eggs in the Pokémon series has been one of the better ways for players to secure Pokemon that know particular moves. Pokemon Scarlet & Violet is no different, although acquiring an egg is far easier and more streamlined than previous methods throughout the series. Hatching Pokemon eggs faster is highly desired by the fans, and Pokemon players have perfected the best way to hatch eggs throughout the series. What is the best way to hatch eggs fast in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?

If you want to know how to make Pokemon eggs hatch faster, there is one thing you must avoid. Pokemon eggs won’t hatch if you’re climbing or gliding around on Koraidon or Miraidon, so stick to ground-based movement. This is important if you’re hatching eggs while still exploring the Paldea region, as climbing or gliding can slow down the process.

What’s The Best Method To Hatch Eggs In Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Hatching eggs has become an art form for the Pokemon Community, and fans have worked out ways to shorten the process. Several Pokemon abilities can make eggs hatch faster: Flame Body, Magma Armor, and Steam Engine. There was some debate leading up to the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet if Flame Body, an ability specific Fire-type Pokemon could learn, would benefit this process. In previous iterations, this was true, where Flame Body would halve the number of cycles it takes for a Pokemon egg to hatch. Some players debated if this was true.

It looks like this is not the case, and these abilities can speed up hatching eggs. The easiest way to do this is by catching a Rolycoly in East Province Area Three, as it can have Steam Engine as its ability. There is also Camerupt in North Province Area Two, which can have Magma Armor or track down a Charcadet, which has Flame Body as a Hidden Ability and can be found in numerous areas. All you need is one of these Pokemon in your party to hasten the Egg hatching process but bear in mind that these effects don’t stack with each other, so you only need one.

Tracking down a Pokemon with Flame Body, Magma Armor, or Steam Engine is pretty easy in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, especially now that the games have Pokemon Home compatibility, and you can trade the Pokemon you need from other entries in the series. Remember that hatching eggs can still be a lengthy process, even with the useful abilities equipped, so be prepared for the long haul if you’re looking for something specific.
