Pokemon GO: Riolu Hatching Day Guide

Pokemon GO launched a new type of event called Hatch Days, featuring the Emanation Pokémon, Riolu. During this event, it’s all about hatching eggs, and 2 km Eggs have a high chance of hatching the Pokemon in question, which for that specific event, will be Riolu. Trainers also have a higher chance of hatching a shiny version of the featured Pokemon that will come in handy for those who enjoy a rarer collection of Pokemon.
