How to access
Egg Radar Chips
You need to have Egg Radar Chips in order to search for eggs in the Tall Grass. There are 8 different chips, one per egg rarity (Easy, Medium, Hard, Rare, Starter and Legend) and two for regional variants (Alolan & Galarian). These can be purchased from the Item Shop if you have the Egg Radar. The Egg Radar Chip Unown can be obtained after completing the Unown quest at the Ancient Cave.
Finding Legendary Pokemon
The only Legendary Pokemon which can be found in the Tall Grass are Latios, Latias, Keldeo and Cosmog. These Pokemon can only be found if you have the correct items - including the Legendary Radar Chip.
Latios & Latias can be found if you have an Enigma Stone. Enigma Stones are found rarely from Mystery Boxes. Please keep in mind that it is completely random which legendary you will find.
Searching for eggs
Choosing the Pokémon
Important note: You can only search for eggs that are recorded in your Eggdex and you have the chip corresponding to their rarity.
(For example: If you have Psyduck's eggdex entry and you have the Medium chip, you will be able to search for it)
Once you have selected the Pokémon, press "search" and the searching will begin.
Searching for the eggs
Once you've made your selection, the radar will start searching for the egg. Thanks to the recent update at the end of October 2017, the eggs no longer move around like they did before. In other words, it will stay in a fixed spot until you find it. Whenever you click on a grass spot, you will get a notification that helps you to determine if you are close to the Pokémon egg or not:
"But you are very close!" → the egg is within the range of a 3x3 field
"The egg should not be far away." → the egg is within the range of a 5x5 field
"The egg is very far away." → the egg is outside the range of a 5x5 field
(Note: remember that the grass spot you picked is always the center of the given range!)
With these hints given, you can easily come up with the best strategies to find an egg as fast as possible. Also, keep in mind that there is a cooldown between each try to find the egg. You can permanently cut the waiting time in half by purchasing the Egg Radar+ for nuggets.
Note: You can not get Event Pokémon from the Tall Grass
