Riolu Hatch Day
We’re excited to announce that Riolu, the Emanation Pokémon, will be featured during the upcoming Riolu Hatch Day event!
Wait, but what’s a Hatch Day? How can you participate? Read on to learn more about this exciting new event type coming to Pokémon GO for the very first time this July!
What is a Hatch Day?
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 first Hatch Day will feature Riolu, the Emanation Pokémon. Get those Incubators ready and see just how many Riolu you can hatch in three hours during the event!
In 2 km Eggs
Riolu will hatch much more frequently from 2 km eggs. You’ll also have an increased chance of hatching Shiny Riolu!
A perfect IV Riolu from an Egg hatch has a CP of 567.
The following Pokémon are also noted to be in 2 km Eggs during the event but are on the rarer 5-star Egg Tier. (Riolu is on the 1-star Egg Tier.)
Update: An overwhelming majority of Eggs are hatching Riolu so I don’t believe these additional Pokémon have significant odds.
Field Research Tasks
Event-themed Field Research tasks will be available when you spin Photo Discs at PokéStops. Complete the tasks to earn candy, Stardust, Berries, Great Balls, and XP.
