How Do You Get Strange Eggs?

The only way to get Strange Eggs in Pokemon Go is to defeat the Team GO Rocket leaders, including Cliff, Giovanni, Arlo, and Sierra. 

You’ll get Strange Eggs as a reward, but first, you need to make some space for them in your Bag, Egg, and Pokemon Storage inventory. 

The Hatch Rate and the Rarest Egg

Strange Eggs are 12km eggs, which is also the rarest egg in the game, so you can understand why are they so precious. 

However, you’ll notice various eggs, including 2km, 5km, 7km, and 10km. In addition, you should know that the rarity of the ‘mon inside gets higher as you increase the tiers. 

How to Hatch the Eggs Faster?

Hatching Strange Eggs might be quite the challenge. Luckily, we can help with that.

Follow these steps and hatch the eggs faster:

  1. Incubators: buy an incubator from the Pokemon Go Store and hatch 10km and 12km eggs; the incubator will expire after three uses;
  2. Adventure Sync: turn on this mode to record all your steps even when the app is off;
  3. Keep Pokemon Go on: any slight movements can help you gain steps even if you’re not walking.
