Egg Group is a classification used in the Pokémon games that defines how Pokémon can breed. Depending on the Pokémon that bred the offspring (who will be born in an egg) can acquire new skills that they normally would be able to learn. If two Pokémon are not in an identical Egg Group, they cannot breed at all. This is the list of all egg groups:
- No eggs: The Pokémon in this group simply cannot breed whatsoever, not even with Ditto.
- Ditto: Ditto, thanks to its transformation abilities, is able to breed with almost any Pokémon (regardless of gender), excluding the Pokémon in the No eggs group or another Ditto.
