It’s a big week for Pokémon GO completionists. For this week we’re getting access to regional Kanto hatches in 7km eggs, giving players access to Farfetch’d, Kangashkan, Tauros and Mr. Mime outside of their respective regions. Also, as a bonus, we can now get shiny versions of those regionals, and we can confirm that shinies are available both as hatches and wild catches. It doesn’t mean that getting this collection is going to be easy, however, and you’ll need to put a lot of kilometers down in order to get all four or, for the true obsessive, all four shinies. As usual, the Silph Road is here to help with research.

This is early data, and so we’ll update as better numbers become available. This is a tougher nut to crack than last week’s Unown forms, because we’ve got arguably nine numbers we’re interested in: the rate for hatching a regional at all, the rate for hatching a given regional, and the rate for hatching a given, shiny regional.

So we’ll need a lot of egg hatches to get good numbers on this, but the process begins today. Here’s what Silph has so far: out of 472 eggs, members report having hatched 150 regionals. That’s a 32% hatch rate overall. If we assume that all frou regionals are hatching at equal rates–which may not be true–we can break that down to an 8% chance of getting the particular creature that you’re looking for. These aren’t tremendous odds overall, but trading helps with this considerably. If you get a bad run and hatch like four Kangashkans in a row you can always trade those for the ones that your missing.

Remember, the Pokémon inside an egg is determined at pickup, not at hatch, so do your best to keep your egg collection clear and fillit with as many 7km eggs as possible. Even if the event ends, you’ll still be able to hatch those eggs for a chance at your shiny regionals. It’s a busy month for Pokémon GO, because we’re getting Gen 5 next week and there are assumedly still some surprises in store. Stay tuned.
