Egg Moves are an important part of the Pokémon series and return in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. You have the opportunity for your Pokemon to learn unique egg moves from certain Pokemon through breeding, which can take a little time to perfect and fit into your party. However, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet give you two options for your Pokémon Egg Moves to learn. Here’s what you need to know about how to get Egg Moves in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
How to teach Pokemon in Pokemon Scalet and Violet Egg Moves
There are two ways for a Pokémon to learn an Egg-type move. The first and more common method is breeding. Two Pokémon can only breed if they are in the same egg group. For example, two Bug Egg-type Pokemon can breed together, like a male Butterfree and a female Ariados, but a male Butterfree and a Raticate cannot breed together because the Butterfree is from the Bug Egg group and is owned by Rattika to the group of field eggs.

Once you’ve sorted out the egg grouping and know which Pokémon you want to breed, the egg movement you want to teach a Pokémon must come from the male of both parents. If an Egg Move comes from a female Pokemon, you must catch a male version of that Pokemon. Also, the type of Pokémon that hatches from these eggs is determined by the mother, who is the female of the two. For example, if you want to teach a Flamigo the Quick Guard move, you need to make sure that the father is a Talonflame and the mother is a Flamigo, so that when they lay the egg, the Pokemon will be Flamigo and it will learn Quick Guard.
The second way to teach a Pokemon an Egg Move is a little faster. You need to pick up the mirrorweed at the Cascarrafa Delibird Present Store. You then need to have the Pokemon you want to teach an Egg Move to, hold that item, and be in a party with a Pokemon that can teach it that Egg Move. This Pokemon must also make sure it has an empty Move slot.
For example, we had an Eevee with us and had Mirrorweed held in it, and then we had a Mudbray with us. We organized a picnic, waited about a minute and ended the picnic. By the time the picnic was over, the Eevee had learned the fight type from Mudbray. This process is much faster, especially if you already have a Pokemon with your desired stats. You can only do this once per Pokemon, though, so you’ll need to choose wisely.
