There are a couple of other points these new additions have raised, that are well worth knowing:

  • The frequency of these baby Pokémon appearing in Eggs will change during special events. The most recent is a Valentine's Day event update, which increases the rate of Cleffa, Igglybuff and Smoochum.
  • Togetic can, it seems, be obtained by evolving Togepi.
  • Togepi requires 50 Candy to evolve into Togetic.
  • It appears that you'll need a new Egg, obtained after this new Pokémon update, in order to catch these Pokémon, rather than hatching one of your previous ones.
  • Only second and third generation Pokémon are available currently, meaning no baby Pokémon like Munchlax or Happiny for now.
