The super incubator was a new type of incubator introduced in Pokémon GO back in the September equinox event. As you might suspect, it speeds up hatching by applying a distance multiplier, which basically requires you to walk less to meet the hatching requirements.

In this guide, we're going to go through exactly how the super incubator works, how to get it, and tips on how best to use it to hatch your eggs more efficiently.

How does the super incubator work in Pokémon GO?

The super incubator applies a 0.667x multiplier to the distance you walk while hatching an egg. As a result, you don't have to walk quite as far to hatch an egg as you would with a standard incubator.

Here's exactly how much time it will shave off in a handy chart.

Egg Type Distance Required With Super Incubator
2km 1.333km
5km 3.333km
10km 6.666km

As you can see, it does quite drastically reduce how far you have to walk to hatch an egg. If you want the specifics, it hatches eggs 1.5x faster than the standard incubator.

How do I get a super incubator in Pokémon GO?

Right now, there's no way to get a super incubator unfortunately. It was only available for a limited period in the equinox event last September. We'll update you when, and if, the item makes a return.

Can I own multiple super incubators in Pokémon GO?

You can. There are no limitations on how many super incubators you can own, so go crazy.
