Pokémon Shiny Pearl and Shiny Diamond: how to hatch eggs fast
To hatch Pokémon eggs you have to walk. There are no incubators here like in Pokémon G: you will have to carry the equipped egg and travel long distances on foot or by bike in Sinnoh.
Some, like Piplup, require more than 5,000 steps to hatch. But luckily there are some tricks to hatching eggs faster. The most direct is to search very long paths that allow you to travel them by bike quickly to add steps. Of course, complete all the battles against trainers first so that they do not interrupt you. Two good sites are:
- The bridge over Route 206, between Route 207 and Ciudad Vetusta
- The road to Pueblo Sosiego
However, a more sophisticated trick is to bring in your team a Pokémon that has the ability Flame Body or Magma Shield. This ability, outside of combat, allows the eggs to hatch more quickly, reducing the number of steps required.
The Pokémon that have Flame Body are Magmar, Magmortar, Slugma, Magcargo; and as a hidden ability they have it too Ponyta, Rapidsash and Camerupt. To use it, simply have one of these Pokémon on your team with the egg equipped.
