- how do you get eggs?
Pokémon can be bred by leaving two compatible Pokémon at the Pokémon Daycare in Solaceon Town in Sinnoh.
Two Pokémon are compatible if they are of the same species, or share at least one Egg Group, and are of opposite genders; alternatively, breeding is usually still possible as long as one of them is Ditto, even if the other parent is genderless. Legendary Pokémon (excluding Phione and Manaphy), baby Pokémon, Unown, Nidorina and Nidoqueen cannot breed whatsoever. Pokémon with gender unknown (besides the aforementioned legendaries) can only breed with Ditto.Breeding Rate:Same species, different ID numbers:
The chance of getting an egg is 69.3% (has a value of 70). The old man in the Daycare will say: "The two seem to get along very well."Same species, same ID numbers:
The chance of getting an egg is 49.5% (has a value of 50). The old man in the Daycare will say: "The two seem to get along."Different species, different ID numbers:

The chance of getting an egg is 19.8% (has a value of 20). The old man in the Daycare will say: "The two don't seem to like each other."Different egg groups, same genders or No eggs group:
The Pokémon are incompatible and therefore will not make an egg. The old man in the Daycare will say: "The two prefer to play with other Pokémon than each other."
When there are two compatible Pokémon in the Daycare, for every 256 steps that the player takes, the game will decide whether or not the old man has found an egg, with chances depending on the exact compatibility of the two Pokémon.
If there was an egg produced, the old man will be outside facing the road (Generation IV). The man will hand the player an egg if he or she replies to his question with "Yes" and has an empty slot in the party, and permanently keep the egg if the player responds "No". If the player selects "Yes" but does not have a spare slot, the man will keep it until the player returns and offer it again. Otherwise, there is no way to refuse the egg and receive it later.What will hatch
After walking around for a while, the egg will hatch into a level 1(Generation IV), first-stage Pokémon of the female species' (or non-Ditto parent's) evolutionary chain. (first spoiler)
However, there are two pairs of Pokémon species where the male and female are treated as different Pokémon. In these cases, an egg produced by the female species may hatch into either the male or female variant; however, breeding the male species with Ditto will not produce the female counterpart. (second spoiler)
There are also some Pokémon which will produce variable eggs. The Pokémon that is in these eggs will depend on whether or not the parents held a certain type of incense while breeding. (third spoiler)
That's all about getting what will hatch from eggs. I can keep going if you'd like me to.
