Out of nowhere, there seems to be a mini-event going on in Pokemon GO featuring fossil Pokemon hatching from 7K eggs.
These ancient Pokemon who were previously available in 2K, 5K, and 10K eggs are now only found in 7K eggs. Also, Riolu will return to 10K eggs effective immediately since the gifted eggs can now only produce fossil Pokemon.
This isn’t the first time that there have been special events focused on the 7K eggs you receive from gifts. The only difference is that this temporary change came out of nowhere.
Unlike other hatching events, there are no boosts in incubator effectiveness. Likewise, there’s no stardust or candy boost to speak of here. For now, it just seems to be a change in what Pokemon can hatch from 7K eggs.
The list of fossil Pokemon that are now hatching from these pink and yellow eggs is literally all of the fossils that are currently in the game. Here is that full list:
While most of these Pokemon will now take longer to hatch, this event will decrease the distance it takes to hatch a Tirtouga or Archen from 10K to 7K.
Thanks to the increased amount of candy you get for hatching Pokemon this will be a great way to work on your fossil collection. This should also make it easier to obtain more Tirtouga and Archen candies to evolve them into Carracosta and Archeops.
As of right now, we’re not quite sure how long it will run. The official release closed by saying that Spark is on the case so we’ll likely hear more soon.
