As you when you first get an egg, you'll notice in it's status screen how it's doing. Based on the number of steps it'll take, it'll start to shake more and more, in which eventually, it'll hatch into a basic level 5 pokemon! For example, you'd receive an egg from Professor Elm's aide, and it'll hatch into a level 5 Togepi.

When you first arrive to the Day Care Center near Goldenrod City at Route 34, you get to have an Odd Egg, which can hatch into one of these pokemon:



That being said... During your playthrough, which one of these Pokemon did your Odd egg hatch into? Do you use the pokemon that you hatch from the Odd on your pokemon team?thoughts!

    As the Odd Egg has a very high chance of being Shiny I decided to soft reset until I got a Shiny and would use whatever it ended up being.

    On the fourth soft reset I obtained a Shiny Tyrogue which I nicknamed Marshal. I almost didn't know it was Shiny as I could not remember what colour Tyrogue normally was until I saw this pne had blue shorts.

    After feeding him several Proteins he evolved at Level 20 is now a Shiny Hitmonlee and is on my team.

      Crazy as this may sound, I've never hatched an egg I got from the Day Care Center and instead, I boxed the egg.

        I normally soft reset until I get Elekid. I'd probably use Magby if GSC had Physical waterfall, ice punch, etc. getting more potential out of Feraligatr. But since it isn't like that in GSC I always use Typhlosion for that awesome Fire/Electric coverage, Elekid rounding up with Electric/Ice.

        On my first try it hatched into a Cleffa, non-shiny. However, I had something else in mind. I wanted either a Pichu or Tyrogue. After just 5 srs I hatched it into the shiny Tyrogue I wanted and think he's gorgeous! I'm glad that I kept trying.

        I wanted a Shiny so I kept resetting until I got one. On the 10th Egg I got:


        Too bad I already had Growlithe on my team, so I just boxed Magby

          I originally wanted an shiny Elekid and SR for several days just to get it. Then I just settled for a shiny Magby. She apart of my team now and she's a helpful team member to boot. I'm pretty happy that I kept her.

              Kept resetting for a shiny. Wanted Cleffa, as that's what I got when I was a kid (even though I wanted Igglybuff as a kid and I was like, nooo not Cleffa)... and I got shiny Igglybuff! So pretty happy. Took like 12 tries to get ANY sort of shiny though :|

                Haven't played yet but I'm hoping for a Tyrogue, preferably a shiny one.

                My first time through I got a normal Elekid, and I was using it, but I recently restarted my game because my team composition was horrendous. Can't wait to see what I get the second time through.

                I got a Smoochum! She is a part of my team as a very strong Jynx now. I honestly couldn't be happier but any of them would have pleased me aside from Igglybuff since you can just catch Jigglypuff lol

                Alright, just to follow up, my second egg hatched into a Cleffa. Not shiny. I'll think about using it. Dunno yet.

                  My egg hatched into a magby. It helped in the battle with red.

                  I got an un-shiny Elekid, which was actually pretty helpful as I needed an electric type to round out my team, what with Mareep missing entirely from the game.. He helped me beat Pryce and evolved after the battle. Now I'm just waiting on my Exeggcute egg to hatch..

                    I SR'd for a shiny, which turned out to be Magby. It was boxed because my party already had Quilava for Fire-types.

                        My egg, when I first played Crystal (on an emulator, I'm not old enough yet to just waste my money on eBay) turned into :t236:, unshiny, and I didn't even know about the shiny chance: I just rolled with it. Despite what you might expect, I boxed the 'mon after it evolved into Hitmontop, as I had my whole team set up anyway by the time I hatched the darn thing.

                        However, this story takes a very surprising turn once I had my sights set on completing Pokemon PolishedCrystal (not LiquidCrystal, I mean the one being headed by Rangi).
                        In the hack, the Odd Egg Pokemon roster was changed to suit the Pokemon that were actually in the game; for instance: Munchlax was in while (I think) Igglybuff was out (You can only get regular Jigglypuff from hatching now.)
                        Why I specifically mentioned Munchlax? The answer is ridiculously simple: My first Odd Egg hatch was a shiny Munchlax. There's no mistaking that I trained it enough to become the very best, like no other Snorlax ever was.

                          For my VC copy of the game, I hatched an Igglybuff. I forgot to stand there and reset, unfortunately. But I plan on getting another copy for my other 3DS bc Crystal is one of my favorite Pokemon games. I had a shiny Igglybuff on my hard copy once, though. Back before the battery died, lol.
