“Pokemon GO” players are slowly getting an idea of which species of Pokemon hatch most frequently from eggs, especially after Niantic released the second generation of Pokemon. It will be interesting to see which Pokemon hatch most frequently, how to catch Hondour and hatch Skarmory and Sudowoodo.

According to The Silph Road, each type of Egg has rarity tiers. This means that among all the Pokemon that can hatch from a five kilometre egg, for instance, some hatch more frequently than some. Ponyta and Psyduck are very common when it comes to five kilometre eggs. Porygon and Sneasel are rare. While Ekans and Misdreavus are common with two kilometre eggs, Misdreavus is a rare hatch. Similarly, for 10 kilometre eggs, Aerodactyl, Lapras, Snorlax, Miltank, and Skarmory are extremely rare, whereas Dratini and Pineco are common.

Meanwhile, players have been hunting for Hondour for the past few weeks and it is one of the rarer second-generation Pokemon. Up to now it appears that Hondour spawns at a higher frequency in desert biomes. These locations also produce Chansey, Mankey, Geodude, Rhyhorn, Ekans, Meowth, and Growlithe. “Pokemon GO” players should also keep searching a Hondour nest, which are real world locations where Hondour spawns at a higher frequency. The Silph Road is also a good place to search for Hondour nests.

According to Heavy, the 227th Pokemon Skarmory was added to “Pokemon GO” in a February update. It is found mainly near grass and parks, though players have reported catching them all over the place and in all biomes. It is also found near water and in same places where Slobro, Psyduck and Magikarp spawn. Players have also found Skarmory in mountain biomes where Dragonites, Clefairys and Nidorans are also found. The Atlas Map can be used to locate where Skarmory spawns more frequently than others. Skarmory nests do not exist.

Another Heavy report has revealed where Sudowoodo spawns and how “Pokemon GO” players can hatch it. This is the 185th Pokemon that was added in the February update. A player’s location decides whether Sudowoodo is common or rare. As it is a Tree-type Pokemon, Sudowoodo spawns at a higher frequency in grassy biomes. It is found in those locations where players generally find Bellsprout and Oddish. It has also been spotted at desert biomes. Chansey, Mankey, Geodude, Rhyhorn, Ekans, Meowth and Growlithe frequently spawn in these areas. It is still unclear whether Sudowoodo nests exist or not.
