AFK Egg Hatching Trick

Did you know riding a Bike will hatch eggs faster? This is the go to method for most players, and is recommended if you plan to hatch multiple eggs. Combine this with the afk egg hatching trick which uses a controller.

  1. First, you will need to find an open space where your character won't get stuck on in-game objects like trees, pokemon encounters, rocks, etc.
  2. Next, you will want the controller's Left Stick pointing Forward and the controller's Right Stick pointing Left or Right direction.
  3. Doing this will cause your character to walk or ride the bike around in circles. While you are AFK, your character is moving, which will cause your egg to hatch.
  4. Below is an example of a Twitter user @poke23156978 using ChopSticks; however, people achieve the same results using Paper Weights, Tape, Rubberbands, etc., just be careful not to ruin your controller.
