Niantic definitely knows the importance of creating freshness to improve the gaming experience of Trainers. They have been trying to feed us one at a time, and from different aspects. First is the outbreak of ghosts during Halloween, then more items from pokestops celebrating the introduction of daily bonuses, followed by double Exp and stardust during Thanksgiving, and now it is the new baby eggs. Anyone thinking of having a new item introduced in the near future or checking out these Pokemon go accounts for sale? Is it time for us to have one?
It will not be a thought anymore and it is highly probable that it is under progress now.
From the source of a Reddit user, there have been testing for a new item by Niantic, which is an egg incubator equipped with a distance multiplier. By changing the item set in the coding, especially the column for distance multiplier, say for example from 1.0 to 2.0. A trainer can then hatch an egg with half the distance of walking, i.e. hatching a 10KM egg walking only 5 KM. It is actually very much similar to “the shorter distance walked for a buddy candy” during Halloween, simply by changing the multiplier from 1.0-4.0.
We are not 100% sure if this item will be introduced. But if it’s really true, it probably will be introduced at the Easter Event. 2 Facts to support the release during the Easter event.
The first thing we would think of during Easter would be Easter eggs. The introduction of an enhanced egg incubator would make perfect sense.
The action of Niantic often followed a sequence. Say, for example, if there is a future release of Gen II, they will have a double stardust event beforehand for trainers to stack up against their stardusts to power up the Gen II Pokemon. Like this time, Gen II babies are introduced via the channel of egg incubation. They for sure would want to introduce a stronger incubator in near future to fulfill the great need for faster egg hatching.
In my opinion, I am very disappointed about not having the full release of full Gen II pokemon. Yet, I won’t deny Niantic to be a thoughtful game developer as they often listen to the need and request from us.
