Egg Moves are a critical part of the Pokémon series, and they return in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. You’ll have the chance for your Pokémon to learn unique Egg Moves from specific Pokémon through breeding, which will take a little time to perfect and layer up in your party. However, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet give you two ways for your Pokémon to learn Egg Moves. Here’s what you need to know about how to get Egg Moves in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to teach Pokémon Egg Moves to Pokémon Scalet and Violet

There are two ways for a Pokémon to learn an Egg Move. The first, and more common method, is through breeding. Two Pokémon can only breed if they are in the same egg group. For example, two Pokémon from the Bug Egg group can breed with each other, such as a male Butterfree and a Female Ariados, but a male Butterfree and a Raticate cannot breed with each other, because the Butterfree from the Bug Egg group and the Ang raticate from the Field Egg group.

Once you’ve sorted the egg grouping and know which Pokémon you want to spawn, the Egg Move you want to teach a Pokémon must come from the male of both parents. If the Egg Move is from a female Pokémon, you must catch a male version of the Pokémon. Additionally, the type of Pokémon hatched from these eggs is determined by the mother, the female of the two. For example, if you want to teach the move Quick Guard to a Flamigo, you need to make sure that the father is a Talonflame and the mother is a Flamigo, so when they lay the Egg, the Pokémon inside it becomes a Flamigo, and this. learn Quick Guard.

The second way to teach a Pokémon an Egg Move is faster. You need to get the Mirror Herb from the Cascarrafa Delibird Present shop. You need to have the Pokémon you want to learn an Egg move, grab this item and be in a party with a Pokémon that can teach this egg move. This Pokémon must also ensure that they have an empty move slot.

For example, we have an Eevee with us and it holds the Mirror Herb, and then we have a Mudbray with us. We made a Picnic, waited a minute or so, and ended the Picnic. When the Picnic was over, Eevee learned Fighting-type from Mudbray. This process is extremely fast, especially if you have a Pokémon with the stats you want. However, you can only do this once per Pokémon, so you have to choose wisely.
