Egg Incubators

Egg Incubators are items used to hatch Pokémon Eggs. In order to hatch an egg, a Trainer must place an Egg in an Incubator.

There are three types of Incubators:

  • an Unlimited one, which is orange in appearance and has infinite uses;
  • a Limited one, which is blue in appearance and has three uses;
  • and a Super one, which is purple in appearance and has three uses, but hatches an Egg much faster.

To see currently owned Incubators there are two ways:
