From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The Mineral egg group is one of the sixteen egg groups.
This group is comprised mostly of Template:Type2 and Template:Type2 Pokémon. The common characteristic shared by this group are Pokémon of an inorganic nature, specifically taking on a crystaline/metalliac appearence, hence the name, Mineral.
In this egg group, the majority of members are genderless, and can only breed with Ditto. This makes for a very limited pool of moves that can be passed down among the few members of the group that can pass and inherit egg moves.
