In order to hatch eggs, you need to add the egg to your Pokemon party and start walking. While this is the process to hatch every egg in the game. The amount of time the egg will take to hatch depends on the species of the Pokemon that the egg group belongs to. And of course, it also comes down to how much you walk or ride your Koraidon or Miraidon.

Based on the pattern of previous starters, it should take you 5120 steps to hatch a Sprigatito, Fuecoco, or Quaxly.
