Pokémon Go has a number of baby Pokémon you can only get through hatching Eggs - Togepi, Pichu Magby, Elekid, Igglybuff, Smoochum , Cleffa, Gen 3's Azurill and Wynautand Gen 4's Mantyke, Chingling and Munchlax.
Below, we'll explain how to get the new baby Pokémon and everything else you need to know about them.
How to get Baby Pokémon Togepi, Pichu, Magby, Elekid, Igglybuff, Smoochum, Cleffa, Azurill, Wynaut, Munchlax, Chingling and Mantyke in Pokémon Go
What's unique about Baby Pokemon is you need to hatch them from Eggs - which means you're going to need to get walking.
The distances required to get each Pokémon chop and change based on the event in question. Our Egg chart page will give you the latest information for specific types of creatures, but in short, expect to find them in 2km and 5km Eggs, or if there's an event on, 7km Eggs. (To date, none have appeared in 10km Eggs, despite their rarity!).

Pokémon Go Battles have arrived! Now's a good time to refresh yourself with our Best Pokémon lists and pick up some Sinnoh Stones. Elsewhere this month, the big Pokémon Go Christmas Holiday event 2018 is here, introducing new Baby Pokémon, as well as the usual new January Field Research and additional Shinies. Meanwhile, new Pokémon Go Gen 4 Pokémon continue to be slowly released, along with the return of Legendary Kyogre and Groudon and their counters, and the latest EX Raid Deoxys form, and there's been an update to the Type Chart and type effectiveness multipliers, details of the latest Community Day Pokémon Totodile, and finally what we know about the new Limited Research and Feebas Day and Hoenn event, too.
How to evolve Togepi and other information you should know about the new baby Pokémon
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. An example is the Valentine's Day event update, which increases the rate of Cleffa, Igglybuff and Smoochum.
- All Baby Pokémon will have an evolution. Most of these can be caught in the wild, so if you want a complete living Pokédex, then try and catch them instead of evolving the Baby Pokémon.
