Incubators are used to hatch Eggs. In order to hatch a 2 km, 5 km, or 10 km egg, a player must place an Egg in the Incubator. The app must be open for the distance walked to be tracked.

There are three types of Incubators: an Unlimited, which is orange in appearance and has infinite uses; a Limited, which is blue in appearance and has three uses; and a Super, which is purple in appearance and has one use, but hatches an Egg much faster.
