What is a Hatch Day? Egg icon

Similar to Pokémon GO Community Days, Research Days, or Raid Days, Hatch Days are focused around specific featured Pokémon.

And with Hatch Days, it all comes down to hatching! You’ll have a greatly increased chance of hatching the featured Pokémon from 2 km Eggs and an increased chance of hatching a Shiny featured Pokémon—that’s pretty egg-citing!

The third Hatch Day will feature Cleffa, the Star Shape Pokémon. Get those Incubators ready and see just how many Cleffa you can hatch in three hours during the event!
