Autumn Event: Part 2 – Strange Eggs Infopedia

Team GO Rocket is releasing Strange Eggs into the world of Pokémon GO!

Remember back when Spark mentioned he was noticing something happening with Eggs? Don’t worry, we don’t either. But, maybe we now have the answer!

Strange Eggs will be making their debut in Pokémon GO! These Eggs will hatch Poison- and Dark-type Pokémon, and Pokémon that get that typing when evolved. To kick off Strange Eggs, there will be a week-long event in Pokémon GO. This Infopedia will help you make the most of the week.
