There is one more type of Egg that Pokémon Go trainers can obtain and that's through the Adventure Sync feature.

Adventure Sync allows for Pokémon Go to track your steps and the distance trainers walk even while the game is not open. Each Monday, the Adventure Sync counter resets and trainers can earn items and even Eggs depending on how long they walk.

There are a separate pool of 5km and 10km Eggs that can be obtained and have their own batch of Pokémon that can hatch from them. Niantic hasn't confirmed which Pokémon will hatch from these special Eggs, but we'll update this section once we gather more information.
