'Pokémon Masters' Egg Feature Arrives and Lets Players Select Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle

One of the more surprising announcements during February's Pokémon Day was the reveal that Eggs are coming to the Pokémon Masters mobile game.

Pokémon Masters players now have the ability to obtain Eggs that hatch into one of the three partner Pokémon from the Kanto region: Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle.

Once selected, players can pair one of these three Pokémon with the game's main character. Currently, the main character can team up with Pikachu and Torchic.

To obtain an Egg, all Pokémon Masters players have to do is log-in and Professor Bellis will hand it to you. Players will then choose if they want the Egg to hatch to Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle.

Eggs hatch after players complete a certain number of battles, and they will also be able to choose their own names for these Pokémon. In the case of Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle, players need to complete five battles to hatch. In addition, more Pokémon hatchable from Eggs will be made available in future updates—all of which can be paired with the game's Main Character to form a sync pair.

Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander start out as a three-star Sync Pair. The Pokémon's potential can be increased with the proper star power-up. Also, the Kanto Starters don't have their own Sync Pair Story to evolve—they'll do so when you reach a certain level and have the proper number of evolution shards.

Along with the Egg announcement, DeNA (who are the developers behind Pokémon Masters) also announced a few updates coming to the mobile game.

The first is a brand new Legendary Event featuring the trainer Silver and the Legendary Pokémon, Ho-Oh. The event titled "Pure Hearts and Rainbow Wings" will begin April 30 at 2 a.m. EDT, and end May 14 at 1:59 a.m. EDT. This event will allow players to go on an adventure with Silver and Nathan from the Johto region.

Complete the event to obtain the Silver and Ho-Oh sync pair.

The second introduces the Wallace and Milotic sync pair into Pokémon Masters. The Water-type sync pair will make their debut in the sync pair Spotlight Scout at the same time as the Ho-Oh Legendary event.

Try your luck in pulling this brand new sync pair using your gems.

Pokémon Masters is available as a free download for iOS and Android devices.
