There is no way to get around taking steps as a method to hatch eggs, but there are a few things that will speed this process up drastically.

The biggest thing you’ll want to do is get ahold of a Pokémon that boasts either Flame Body or Magma Armor. These two abilities on a Pokémon will speed up the egg hatching time by halving the number of steps required while they are in your party.

Pokémon that boast these two abilities include Ponyta and Magmar who can be caught with Flame Body as a hidden ability, along with Magcargo and Camerupt that can be found with Magma Armor naturally.

Once you’ve got one of these Pokémon in your party, simply head to Solaceon Town, where you’ll find the longest unobstructed straight path in the game. Simply run up and down this route until you’ve taken enough steps to hatch your Pokémon egg.
