it’s happening — the Super Incubator has been added to the GAME_MASTER configuration file, leaking almost fully ahead of the Equinox event. We still don’t know the exact price of the item, but we know the following:

  • it will be available in event sale boxes
  • it applies a 0.6666667 distance multiplier, resulting in 1.5x faster hatching
  • it breaks after 3 usages, not after one, different from what the earlier translation files hinted

The full excerpt from the Game Master is here:

item_settings {
    item_type: ITEM_TYPE_INCUBATOR
    drop_trainer_level: 100
    egg_incubator {
        incubator_type: INCUBATOR_DISTANCE
        uses: 3
        distance_multiplier: 0.6666666865348816

And the full Super Incubator distance chart is here, illustrating how much faster it will be to hatch using the new incubator:

Egg Distance (km) Distance (miles)
2 KM 1.3333 km 0.8285 mi
5 KM 3.3333 km 2.0712 mi
10KM 6.6666 km 4.1424 mi

We’re in the process of updating related Hub pages, namely our Super Incubator guide. We still have no information on the price of the new incubator, but we’re hoping that Niantic will offer an interesting deal.

As parting words, remember to look out for the following new icon tommorrow:
