The Pokemon Go egg hatching has improved quite a bit since now many players say that the distance tracker even works while biking and updates faster than the previously 4-5 minutes that it used to take. The reports are all real!
It seems that Niantic did one or maybe both the things to increase egg hatching speed.
- Increased the top speed by which the game registers the travelled distance.
- • Increased the frequency of detecting the travelled distance.
A Reddit user Gabbe95 posted a question, claiming that he can achieve the highest speed of 20 MPH before the game stops registering, on the /r/Pokemon go subreddit.
“Did some testing after hearing about the increase to the refresh rate of GPS location and the ‘walking’ speed of being able to hatch eggs. After going different speeds, I found roughly around 20 MPH is where it’ll finally stop. I easily hatched a 10K egg by driving around my neighborhood for about 10 minutes. Anyone else does any testing of their own? Edit: Just to be clear I wasn’t the one driving while playing.”
Other tests also revealed that the Pokemon GO egg hatching speed wasn’t that high, but somewhere around 12.5 MPH, bringing it much closer to the old rate. However, this is great news for those who jog and bikers. Many players have invested heavily in accessories for Pokemon GO and giving them the option to use them sounds amazing.
