Pokémon Go has plenty of baby Pokémon! But you can't just catch them. The good news is, you can hatch them. Here's how!
What babies are available in Pokémon Go?
- Pichu (baby Pikachu)
- Togepi (baby Togetic)
- Cleffa (baby Clefairy)
- Igglybuff (baby Jigglypuff)
- Magby (baby Magmar)
- Smoochum (baby Jinx)
- Elekid (baby Electobuzz)
- Tyrogue (baby Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, and Hitmontop)
- Azurill (baby Marill)
- Wynaut (baby Wobbuffet)
- Budew (baby Roselia)
- Chingling (baby Chimecho)
- Bonsly (baby Sudowoodo)
- Mime Jr. (baby Mr. Mime)
- Happiny (baby Chansey)
- Munchlax (baby Snorlax)
- Riolu (baby Lucario)
- Mantyke (baby Mantine)
Can we catch them? Incense them? Lure them? Will they spawn?
No. No. No. Sadly, no. Pokémon Go isn't making the new Gen 2 babies available to catch, at least not yet. That means they won't spawn either randomly or at PokéStops, and they won't show up for Incense or Lures.
If you want one, you have to hatch them! And that means eggs!
Which babies hatch from which Eggs?
While the Pokémon you can get from Eggs changes regularly, currently you can find baby Pokémon in the following Eggs:
5 KM Eggs
- Mime Jr. (only in Europe)
7 KM Eggs
10 KM Adventure Sync Activity Reward Eggs
Can we evolve the babies?
Absolutely. In most cases, it's not a huge help, since you can catch most of the evolved forms in the wild and, even evolved, many of these species aren't super useful. But, Pokémon hatched from Eggs tend to have pretty good, if not excellent IVs. A handful of these species are also pretty useful, so it may be worth it to evolve the following:
- Togepi into Togetic, then Togekiss
- Magby into Magmar, then Magmortar
- Elekid into Electabuzz, then Electivire
- Tyrogue into Hitmontop
- Riolu into Lucario
- Budew into Roselia, then Roserade
