I guess this is where I type. What shall I type? Shall I type that I am a 15 year old human female? Or that I am pansexual with a preference for men? Or how about that I'm in just about every fandom you can name? I don't know. But if you learn about me, congrats!
The pokemon duh eggs werent even introduced until gen 2
if you think about it from a canonical standpoint it was the egg because the creation myth says that an egg appeared where there was nothingness and Arceus came out of that egg
You’re both geeks. That’s how I see it
Also, if you go into the coding for gen 1, there is a sprite for the egg that was never used in the final games. Some people theorize that breeding was actually planned for gen 1, but the game production was so rushed & glitchy it was scrapped and put aside awhile. So eggs existed in gen 1, we just couldnt use them.
