While you travel across the Sinnoh region and try to fill out your PokéDex in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl players will likely find themselves collecting a couple of eggs. These eggs can hatch into a Pokémon to add you your ever-evolving party. Some players may find themselves not understanding how to do so. Luckily, this guide can help clear up any confusion players may have about the process. This guide will explain to you how to hatch eggs in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
How to Hatch Eggs in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
To hatch an egg, players will need to take the egg that they want to hatch and place them in their party lineup. Once this is done, you will require a certain number of steps from the player before it will hatch. Just start moving around the world and you are already working towards getting that egg hatched. You can also lower the number of steps needed to hatch the egg by putting Pokémon that have the Flame Body or Magma Armor abilities in your party alongside the egg. Some Pokémon who have at least one of these abilities include Ponyta, Rapidash, Magby, Magmar, Magmortar, Moltres, Slugma, Magcargo, Heatran, and Camerupt. You can do this with multiple eggs by filling multiple spots with different eggs. This will allow you to complete multiple eggs at once.
Route 209 to Route 210 don’t have any enemy encounters so you are able to use these roads to ride your bike up and back repeatedly to make the process as quick and uninterrupted as possible. Following these strategies will provide you with the most optimal way of hatching your eggs in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Good luck with your journey to being a Pokémon master!
