the first research assignment is live! We're trying to determine if Gen II starters (Chikorita, Totodile and Cyndaquil) actually hatch from the 5KM egg group. We're collecting data in order to update and verify our https://pokemongohub.net/generation-2/pokemon-go-generation-ii-egg-chart/
Please report your 5KM hatches below, especially if you hatch a starter!
A few important things:
I had a cyndaquil hatch from a 5km egg a few days after the even had finished. I'm not sure if it was an event egg thought haven't had one hatch since that I can think of. I shall be sure to keep an eye out for our research.
I have hatched over 50 eggs since the event. No starter and also globally no news about something like this on reddit or any other forums.
Yeah, there was a lot of folks falsely reporting they hatched starters before egg dates were a thing, now we can easily come to the bottom of this
Definitely!! Let's get hatching
Hatched ~15 - 20 5kms in the last few days and had no starters... Will keep tabs and report back on future hatches
I haven't hatched all that many 5k eggs but I haven't had any gen II starters either, recently got a nice 610 Elekid though!
I have hatched a lot of eggs since the event and no gen2 starters for me I actually liked it, mostly for cyndaquil, because we just can't seem to find fire pokemon around these parts.
Hatched roughly 50 eggs since the event ended (I keep track whenever I spend coins on Incubators). Out of these ~30 or so were 5KM. Had 9 5KM eggs simultaneously hatching twice. No GEN 2 starters or any other starters. As @Cyb3rvirus said, no news on a global scale from Niantic or other sources like Reddit.
I have 7 5k eggs that I'll be putting to work after the new event. But, I have only seen totodile hatch from 5k eggs
Does the date on a Pokémon mean the day you got the egg?
If the date means the day I got the egg then I hatched a totodile on 4/26/17 but I don't know when I got the egg so it might be through the event.
I had a Chikorita from a 5Km egg that I had during the grass type event.
I hatched every 5km eggs before the end of that event. And I also hatched more than 10 5km eggs since then, none of them is the gen 2 starts. Neither the 2km eggs
Nope...20 plus starterless 5K eggs here. Ton of Growlithe tho
Hatched 12 5km eggs after the iventand had no starters of gen2
Nope, when you hatch an egg the date changes from the day you picjed the egg to the day you hatched
@apavlinovic When do you think we could draw a conclusion? Do we need more data? What do you think?
