Pokemon GO is a game that is constantly being expanded. Sometimes this comes in the form of new Pokemon, while other times whole new systems are being added to the game. Recently, players have begun noticing that a new type of egg is appearing in the game. A red egg. But what does this new egg in Pokemon GO do and what is it used for? Well, in this Pokemon GO Red Eggs Explained guide, we are going to explain everything you need to know about this egg and how it works in the game.
What is Red Egg in Pokemon Go
These Red Raid Eggs are a type of Elite Raid. As their name suggests, these are some of the toughest encounters that you can play in the game. They are more difficult than 5-star raids, so you should plan and prepare for them accordingly. These Elite Raid Eggs appear at certain EX Gyms, and after you get them, they take 24 to then hatch. Take note that you only have 30 minutes to complete these after they hatch. As such, you will be able to see these Raid Eggs on the Ex Gyms 24 hours before a raid begins. The Elite Raids start at the following three times each day: 11 AM, 2 PM, and 5 PM.
Another important thing that you need to know about these Elite Raids is that you can only do them in-person. This means that you can’t rely on your friends to help you out with them. Which is a real shame, since the Pokemon that are featured in these Elite Raids are very powerful, with them typically having over 20.000 HP. In any case, we wish you a lot of luck with completing these Elite Raids in Pokemon GO, such as the Hoopa Unbound.
