Pokemon Sword & Shield Egg Move breeding is a process through which you can get Pokemon with inherited moves that they normally wouldn’t be able to learn. Of course, you need the correct “ingredients” to make the Egg Move breeding in Pokemon Sword & Shield. It’d break the game if it were too easy, after all. With that in mind, let’s go over how to breed Egg Moves in Pokemon Sword & Shield, shall we?
Pokemon Sword & Shield Egg Moves – How to Breed?
To breed Egg Moves in Pokemon Sword & Shield, you need a male with the Egg Move you want the next Pokemon to inherit, and a female of the Pokemon you want to get. For example, a male Dragonite with the move “Outrage” bred with a female Charizard will result in a Charmander that will know “Outrage.” Just keep in mind that the mamma and poppa Pokemon have to be in the same Egg Group. Also, the baby Pokemon should also be able to inherit an Egg Move from the mother, too. However, we’re gonna move forward with the above-described equation.
Anyways, once you have the two Pokemon you need (male with the Egg Move, female of the Pokemon you want to hatch, both in same Egg Group), head to a Nursery. Remember, one is along Route 5, just outside of Turffield, and the other is Bridge Field, the Wild Area northeast of Motostoke. Hand the mother and father Pokemon in, and you’re free to faff about until they have an egg for you. If you really have nothing better to do, you can just run or bike in circles in one spot until the breeder makes a “thinking” pose, indicating that an egg is ready.
Now, all you have to do is place that Egg into your Pokemon Party and walk around until it hatches. When it does, you should have the lowest evolution of the female Pokemon you chose to breed, but which will know the Egg Move that the father had. Congratulations on your bundle of joy.
