Pokemon Go apparant Riolu egg change is dividing players
Pokemon Go were in arms about an apparent change to hatch spawn pools.
The last week of Pokemon Go has brought a number of new changes to the mobile game, thanks to the launch of the new Hidden Gems season.
But in addition to new challenges, we’ve also seen a change to the types of Pokemon that can be obtained from eggs.
However, a controversy sparked up on social media about one Pokemon’s apparent removal from 10km eggs.
Players react to Riolu’s removal from Pokemon Go eggs
On a post on the Pokemon Go Reddit page, players commented on the removal of fan favorite Riolu from 10km eggs. This change was noticed by several players that received 10km eggs this week and checked the updated hatch list.
Riolu is a powerful Fighting-type Pokemon that can evolve into Lucario, arguably one of the strongest monsters in Go. Its removal has led to some being up in arms.
One user sarcastically commented that it makes perfect sense that Niantic would make it harder to obtain a Pokemon featured on the home screen. Another player noted, “Aww, that’s a pity. Riolu is the perfect combination of a mascot of the series and ‘good in [Pokemon Go]’.
Others, however, were happy with the overall changes to the hatch pool for 10km eggs, particularly the removal of Togedemaru.
We should note, however, that this change does not apply to the Adventure Sync eggs. Riolu, by all accounts, can still be obtained via 10 km eggs acquired through Adventure Sync.
There have been a number of notable changes in the mobile game this week, including a brand new season and changes to the Style Shop.
