Strange Eggs in Pokemon Go, sometimes called 12km Eggs, are the newest form of Egg that players can collect, special versions that require an even greater distance to walk with all-new Pokemon waiting to hatch. We'll show you how to get 12KM Strange Eggs in our guide here, including all the best ways to find and hatch them along the way.

Where To Find Strange Eggs In Pokemon GO

In order to obtain a Strange Egg, players will need to defeat one of the Team Rocket Leaders.


There are four leaders in total and each of them uses different Pokemon.

Below is a list of the Rocket Leaders and a link to a dedicated guide for each of them:

Defeating any of the Rocket Leaders will reward a player with a Strange Egg.


The egg will need to be incubated and will take 12km of walking to hatch.

These Strange Eggs contain Dark or Poison-type Pokemon including Pawniard, Sandile, Larvitar and Scraggy.

Taking down a Rocket Leader is no easy task but it's certainly worth it if you're up to the challenge.

Good luck in the battle and obtaining your very own Strange Egg.
