How To Give Pokemon Egg Moves?

Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon Sword and Shield
Last Updated:

Egg Moves have existed since the 4th Generation of Pokemon. These are special moves that a species of Pokemon can only learn when one of the breeding parents has the move to pass down to the Egg Pokemon. Until Pokemon Sword & Shield, Egg moves could only be given to the Egg Pokemon. But not anymore! Now, Eggs Moves can also be passed from one of two compatible Pokemon to the other when placed in the Pokemon Daycare together! No longer will players have to breed to get all the perfect moves on a Pokemon, but instead will only need to momentarily place two Pokemon in the Daycare at the same time for the same affect!

In order to pass egg moves from one Pokemon another, simply place each of them (the one that knows the Egg Move and the one you will would like to learn it) in the Pokemon Daycare or Pokemon Nursery. Make sure both Pokemon are compatible with each other before placing them at either facility, and remember to have at least one empty move slot on the Pokemon you would like to receive the Egg Move. From there, it should only take a few minutes before the Egg move has successfully be passed from the one Pokemon to the other!
