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, Mantyke, Happiny and Bonsly 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!).

Looks like the ability to change teams in Pokémon Go is on the way! Alongside the Valentine's Day event and Meltan event there's February Field Research and additional Shinies. Meanwhile, new Pokémon Go Gen 4 Pokémon continue to be slowly released, along with the return of Legendary Palkia and its counters, and details of the next Community Day Pokémon Swinub.


How to evolve Togepi and other information you should know about the new baby Pokémon

Click to enlarge - you can see silhouettes for all of the baby Pokémon at the bottom of each screen.

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.
