How to get 10,000 km on trading – easily

  • The 10,000 km trade needs to happen in one trade, not a combination of trade sequences. Yep, it’s a big trade, but there’s a workaround. The easiest way is to:
    • Visit /r/pokemongotrades/ and get new buddies from an opposite continent. Be sure they’re really… really… really… far
    • Open gifts, get 7 KM eggs, hatch eggs from that continent.
    • Trade those Pokémon for distances over 10,000 km
    • Profit!
  • Check your Pokémon storage for Pokémon that could be 10,000 km away as well.

Other tips and tricks

  • Seviper and Zangoose are still spawning in their respective regions
  • Shiny Seviper and Zangose are available and confirmed live
  • Event exclusive hatches are live, but require 5 KM eggs to hatch
  • This is a “non-event”, take it easy and enjoy the ride. If there’s a good box sale, get some incubators
