Super Incubator

Super Incubator is a new type of Egg Incubator. Super Incubator enables faster (more efficient) egg hatching by applying a 0.667x distance multiplier value, reducing the required amount of distance to hatch an Egg. Super incubators are available in the in-game shop, starting with Equinox Event boxes and they can be used 3 times.

How does the Super Incubator work?

All in-game Incubators use a “distance multiplier” value which tells the game how to apply the distance requirement to the Egg you just collected. Counter intuitively, the lower the distance multiplier, the faster you hatch eggs. This value is contained inside the Game Master file:

 egg_incubator {
   incubator_type: INCUBATOR_DISTANCE
   distance_multiplier: 0.6666666667

Super Incubator has a lower distance multiplier, resulting in less distance being required to incubate Egg. Essentially, it allows you to hatch eggs faster than before.

Super Incubator FAQ

How much faster does the Super Incubator hatch Eggs?

Lightning speed faster! Wrooom wrooom! Seriously, it hatches 1.5 times quicker, which should result in far more hatches than you usually do.

Can you have multiple Super Incubators?

Yes! The Super Incubator is just another type of incubator, has 1 use and all the rules that apply to store Incubators work for it also.

Is v0.71 required for the Super Incubator release?
It seems like it is. Although the game is certainly capable of displaying a placeholder icon/model in place of the real thing, we believe that 0.71 will be a forced update before SI gets released.

Are there any more Super Incubator pictures/icons in the APK?
Yes there are! We have two icon variants (Empty and Activated) and a texture mesh. These icons were extracted from the 0.71. APK (not that “activated” will probably hold an egg in the middle of the white beam).

Tell me a funny Incubator story!
You just used your Super Incubator to hatch a Mantine.
