Fans of the Pokémon series know that breeding is the main tradition of the games of the main Pokémon series. Pokémon Scarlet & Violet has a reproduction, but it changes some mechanics with which senior fans can be familiar. Here’s what you need to know about breeding in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

How does breeding in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet work?

Breeding in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet was greatly simplified compared to previous generations. It is also much cheaper due to the fact that there are no kindergartens in Pale. Instead, Pokémon eggs can be created by stopping anywhere in the open world and arranging a picnic with your Pokémon. Any two Pokémon from your current group can create an egg, provided that they are of different sexes and belong to one group of eggs.

How to get pigeons on picnics in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Start your picnic, and then take a walk, talk with Pokémon, wash it or prepare a delicious sandwich. We recommend a sandwich with a Hammett as it is easy for him to get the ingredients and one of his ability to eat, egg force, increases the speed with which Pokémon produce eggs. When you walk for several minutes, check the wicker basket on the pillow next to the picnic table. If your Pokémon produced an egg, it will be found there and sent to the box.


As in previous generations, the type of Pokémon you hatch will be the same as his mother, unless you use Ditto. However, Pokémon grown from eggs no longer learn how to do the methods either from the mother or the father. The egg movements can now be transmitted to the Pokémon holding an object called Mirror Herb from another Pokémon at the end of the picnic. Since the egg movements are no longer tied to reproduction, Pokémon can learn methods from others, regardless of gender or species.
