Breeding and hatching eggs are integral parts of Pokémon games, and with the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, it’s time to explore this captivating feature. Here is a streamlined guide for breeding and collecting eggs in this new adventure:


  1. Ensure you have two compatible Pokémon of different genders.
  2. Visit Professor Turoolo in Mesagoza City for the Egg Fossil.
  3. Use it at the Digging Duo in Area Zero-One to unearth fossilized eggs.

**Breeding Process:**

  2. Parent holding a Destiny Knot influences offspring’s nature.
  3. Hatching location determines unique variants (e.g., Sandshrew becoming Sandygast or Sandslash into Paldean Sandslash).
  4. Approx. 1 in 256 eggs hatches a Shiny Pokémon.
