Pokemon Sword and Shield - Egg Group Changes

Details on egg group changes in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Included are an overview, and list of Pokemon with new egg groups.

Overview

Raising Pokemon in the daycare is a staple method to obtaining Pokemon with high individual values. Moves that Pokemon don’t normally learn are called egg moves. These moves can only be taught to the Pokemon that hatches from an egg when the trainer leaves two Pokemon in the nursery. In order to generate an egg, the trainer needs to leave two Pokemon that belong to the same egg group. In the Galar region, some Pokemon gained a new egg group which gives them a chance to learn more egg moves.

Improvements to Egg groups

In the Galar region, some Pokemon received new egg groups. In other words, these Pokemon can now be bred with other Pokemon to allow them to receive new egg moves.
