How To Make Eggs

You Can Make Eggs At A Picnic

Play with your Pokemon

In Pokemon Scarlet & Violet you can make combinations to make an Egg at a picnic, and once a certain time passes, you will be able to make an Egg. Wherever you can have a picnic, you are able to make Eggs. It is a lot easier than the past game titles.

Picnic Guide

There Is No Day Care Center

In the past game titles, you were able to find Eggs at a [Day Care Center] which is not available in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. Since you can have a picnic anywhere, you do not have to move around locations which is a great way to cut down time.

How To Make Eggs

Walkthrough of How to Make Eggs
  1. Put 2 Pokemon in your party that you want to make the Eggs with
  2. Leave the 2 at the picnic for a while
  3. Look in the basket and take out the Egg

    First to make an Egg, you want your party to have JUST the 2 Pokemon you want the parents to be. At this time, you want to make sure that the 2 are compatible to make an Egg.

    Having More Than 3 Pokemon Is Not Recommended

    If you have more than 3 Pokemon in your party, and are able to make more than 2 types of Eggs, the Eggs will be randomly made. If there is an Egg that you specifically want to make, it is recommended to only have the 2 Pokemon in your party.

  3. Leave the 2 Pokemon for A Period of Time
  4. Once you start the picnic and leave them alone, an Egg will automatically be made. You do not need anything specific for the picnic, you can just leave the controller alone as well. The time an Egg is made varies, but if you use Egg Power, it will take about 5 minutes to make an Egg.

  5. Look Inside of The basket
  6. look inside basket

    Once you leave the Pokemons for a certain period of time, check inside the basket that is on the floor. If there is an Egg made, you will be able to pick it up even if you have room in your party, it will be sent to your Box. If you leave the 2 for a long period of time, you may be able to collect a few Eggs at a time.

How To Make An Egg That You Are Aiming For

Option 1:Keep the Egg Groups the Same

Gyarados IconGyarados
Group:Water 2 Group/Dragon
Garchomp IconGarchomp
Child That Would Be Born
Gible IconGible

If the Egg Groups match for both Male and Female Parent, an Egg will be made. At this time, the Egg of the FEMALE parent will be made. If a Pokemon has 2 types of Egg Groups, if either one of them matches, then they will be compatible.

Option 2:Use a Ditto


Dittos can be combined with any types of groups. or with each other and it can have any type of Eggs. If there is a Pokemon that are ONLY males or Gender Unknown Pokemon, a Ditto is your best option.

▶Ditto How To Get & How To Find Disguises

Be Confirm Region Forms for & Different Types of Forms

Be Careful With a Different Type of Region Form

Wooper has a normal and Region form but if you combine the 2 together, you will get the Paldean Wooper every time. If you want to make a Normal Wooper's Egg, you need the parent Normal Wooper to be holding the [Everstone].

Example: How To Make A Normal Wooper Egg

Ditto IconDitto
Item : None

Child That Would Be Born
Wpp@er IconWooper

To make a Normal Wooper Egg, you need to have the parent Normal Wooper holding an Everstone. To change the nature of the child Wooper, the Male parent (Ditto in this example) you need to have it holding an Everstone as well. Then you will have a 50% change to have either Modest or Timid nature Child Wooper.

A Wrong Step Egg Situation 1

If you do not give the Everstone to the Normal Wooper, a Paldean Wooper will be born. Even if the Male parent is holding the Everstone, you will get a Paldean Wooper.

A Wrong Step Egg Situation 2

Paldean Wooper IconPaldean Wooper
Child That Would Be Born
Paldean Wooper IconPaldean Wooper

If you have the Paldean Wooper to be holding the Everstone, the Egg will become a Paldean Wooper. In Pokemon SV, the Paldean Wooper is the more common so even if you make it hold the Everstone, you will not get a Normal Wooper.

Even The Form Is Different, It Will Be The Same As the Female Parent

Like the Oricorio which has different forms where you find them, the form of the Female parent will be passed down to the Child. For example, if you want the Egg of the Oricorio in the Pom-Pom Style, you need a Pom-Pom Style Female parent and a Male parent of Pom-Pom Style or Ditto to make this Egg.

Using the Union Circle To Make The Egg

You Do Not Need To Exchange To Make An Egg

You do not have to exchange to male eggs

If you use the Union Circle in the Poke Portal, you can have a picnic with other players. If you do this, you can use the Pokemon that another player is using and mate it with your Pokemon to have them make an Egg.

If you have 2 People Making An Egg
  1. Play in the Union Circle with 2 people
  2. Have 2 people join the picnic
  3. Take out an Egg out of the basket
  1. Play in the Union Circle with 2 people
  2. If you have more than 2 people join a picnic, you would need to use the Poke Portal to open up the Union Circle. Add in the password, and you can start the journey together.

    It Is Not Recommended To Have More Than 3 People For An Egg Event

    In an Union Circle Picnic, you may only bring 1 Pokemon. If you have more than 3 people, it means you will have more than 3 Pokemon joining the picnic, and it will be harder for you to get the Egg you are aiming to make.

  3. Have 2 people join the picnic
  4. When the Union Circle starts, both people join up in the same location and start the picnic. If one of you set up the table in the location, the other just needs to press the A Button and you will be able to join their picnic.

  5. Take out the Egg out of the basket
  6. Once the 2 people have joined the picnic, now you just need to leave them alone. But you do share the basket where you will find the Egg, so if one of you pick up the Egg, then the other person will not be able to get it, so be cautious of that.

Best Way to Hatch Eggs

Have The Egg In Your Party And Join A Raid

Put your Egg in your party, and you make the certain amount of footsteps then you will be able to hatch your Egg. At this time, you can either walk o foot or you can use your Legendary Ride, so it might be helpful using your Ride which is faster and more convenient.

Good Locations To Hatch Your Egg

Hatching Your Egg In Town Is Very Effective

Walkthrough of Hatching An Egg
  1. Buy the Compote du Fils
  2. Go outside of town and start a picnic and make an Egg
  3. Run around town
  1. Buy the Compote du Fils
  2. Gastronomie en Famille

    There is a fancy restaurant in a bigger town (Gastronomie en Famille), there is a menu that has an Egg Power of Lv 2 (2800 P) that you can order. If you have not bought an Egg Power of Lv 2~3, it is recommended to do so.

    ▲How to go to the fancy restaurant (From the south of Levincia, head north east)

  3. Have a Picnic outside of town and make an Egg
  4. East Provine Area 1

    You may only have a picnic outside of town. But when you are hatching your egg, inside of town is recommended so you can avoid accidents. So having a picnic near town is for the better.

  5. Run Around Town
  6. Once you have made your Egg, you would want to add the Pokemon with the Special Ability and 5 Eggs. Once you have your party set up, you would want to run around town. You can run outside of town, but you will be approached by Wild Pokemon which is very unsafe in this situation.
