So I finally caught my first Machop today...

I opened up my Pokemon, tapped on Machop, and the first thing I notice is that I have 21 Machop candies. How is this possible? He is the only Machop I've ever caught. What other way(s) could I have gotten all of this candy? Pokestops? Battles?

    Did you hatch one? – Kaz Wolfe Jul 19 '16 at 2:27

    Did you catch any of the evolutions? The candy is shared across all of them. – Jeff Mercado Jul 19 '16 at 2:36

You hatched it.

Eggs will also grant a varying number of candies for your type of Pokemon. I have observed 15-25 or more candies upon hatching.
