Hatch 7 Eggs Reward Pokémon GO: What You Need to Know

Hatching seven Pokémon eggs is a time-consuming task. At minimum, it requires walking 14 kilometers total, as the shortest distance required for egg-hatching is two kilometers. For anyone looking to hatch longer distance eggs, the total distance quickly becomes daunting. Lucky for the players looking to avoid all that walking, they have all month to complete the challenge.

As a reward for successfully hatching seven eggs, players will earn an encounter with either Alolan Vulpix or Lapras. Laprases caught during these encounters will have both Ice Shard and Ice Beam, which are among the best player-vs.-player moves Lapras can have.
