I am not sure whether this has already been discussed, but I am talking about it anyway.

Whenever I wanna adopt an egg from the lab, the egg I have my eyes on gets taken right away, and I never get the chance to get a new Pokemon.
Basicly, there should be an increase of eggs at the lab, like increasing the number of eggs from 3 to 6. That way we all get a fair chance of getting a good egg.

Total support! After my chain is finished, I would focus on the Pokédex. And if I see an egg I may need, someone is bound to take it. But I would have a higher chance of getting a better egg if there were more.

There's nothing more beautiful than the rain.

Because that awkward moment when there are 3 easy bug types at the lab
I mostly go on Smogon and Twitter nowadays.

Support, though for slightly different reasons. As the site grows, there will be more users competing for the same three eggs. It'd make sense to have additional slots available. If there's worry about this making things too easy, maybe the extra slots could be unlocked with Pokedollars or at a certain Trainer Level.

I like the traditional 3 eggs because in Pokémon games and show you go in a lab to choose a Pokémon out of how many? 3.

I agree that it's annoying when their all easy or bug types sitting in there waiting to be adopted, but be patient. It's not like they stay in the lab all day.

Well, with more than 50k registered users and more than 5k go online within 24 hours, I'm pretty sure the lab will be available to take eggs easily at some point..

Anyways, if you want to take eggs that YOU want, please realize that you're not the only one in the website that wants some kind of egg. You see that 'rare' rarity yet it gets taken, it's because they also want the rare Pokemon now, don't they? You see the 'dark' type but it gets taken, that's because they also want it, right?

I can see how useful this would be if we had like 10-15k online within 24 hours, because that will make the Lab crowded, however for now I believe it's totally fine with 2-5k online in 24 hours.

Also to add on to what Book says.

Usually at any given time there is generally around 300 members that are online(I say usually and generally because special events do tend to raise the online userbase to 500+), and you also have to take into account that a lot of those members that are currently online are shiny hunting and thus don't need the lab.

The only time the 3 egg thing is a problem is on 3x days, but those days are rare so you don't really encounter that problem.

Once the userbase grows, then I will agree we do need more. But it's fine as it is now.

Do remember that there are alot of us new members (like me) that never get the chance to get a good egg!
I have only gotten one starter egg, and for all I know, people snag them faster and I can't tell.
This is why having multiple eggs would really help for us all. Cause there are times when about 500-1000 members are logged in at a time, and they take eggs like CRAZY!

If you are lab hunting there are only a few ways to actually get good eggs

First is the instagrab tactic. Grab an egg before any info appears, sometimes you get lucky.

Second tactic is the type-stalking. If you want a starter, grab any grass, fire, or water eggs. If you want a legendary bird go for ice, fire, and electric. Ditto is normal

Third is the premium account. It upgrades your lab scanning equipment so you can see the type of the egg at 10 seconds, the rarity at (40 i think) and the pokemon a bit later

Since you don't have premium right now, I advise you stick with the first method (which is the one I use tbh) - people will always be grabbing fire eggs at 10 seconds for example, because it can be a starter or a legend. Other than the need to compete on x2 or x3 days, it is a fairly effective method.

(IE, with premium I've never actually seen a legend or ditto egg have a chance to reveal itself, so you probably never will)

The most effective way for your suggestion to work would be to suggest buyable upgrades/slots (up to three for the total of six)

If you can read this, you know how to read.

So basicly, having a fair chance for everyone isnn't allowed, is what you're saying?

Well, if you put it like that, no. But premium need benefits, and a slightly faster time to see what eggs are is perfectly fair tbh.

If you are having such a problem, I suggest saving for premium like everyone else

Basically as Nessy said: if you want to get eggs faster by seeing what their species is then buy premium.

I understand this whole concept of "everyone deserves a fair chance" but how is it fair or profitable for someone who spent 20$ on premium has the same perks as someone who hasn't? It's not. And if we do this then what's to stop negating other premium benefits as well? Just to make it so "everyone has a fair chance?" Besides, getting decent eggs in the lab with everyone having the same chances doesn't guarantee you'll get better eggs. You'll still be competing with every lab hunter on site, this doesn't solve your problem. There are other ways to get the eggs you need other than the lab so no need to change it.

No support.

But the "Fast Grab" tactic is terrible, and I don't wanna spend money on Premium just yet! All I ask for is a FAIR chance to get a good egg, and not the same one every time! If you don't respect this choice, you are all jerks...

Nessy and QueenPumpkaboo literally just told you not every egg you choose to grab will be good, and will probably be taken before the rarity even shows up :v

It's already fair enough, you just have to get lucky. And if youre that desperate, buy the pokemon from the auction house if you see it.

Rest in Peace, Tasca

Well, I only bought nuggets when I started on this site. Now I can't (because in my country is not possible with mobile for some reason) and I buy premium every month from nuggets that I buy from users (plus I spend almost 270 more nuggets buying flutes). So there's really not good reason to not buy premium if you really want/need to.
