From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The Monster Egg group (Japanese: かいじゅう Monster) is one of the fifteen Egg groups.
Monster group Pokémon are usually among the most powerful, and most well-known. Though not as large as the Field group, the Monster group is still a fairly large group. In terms of general body shape, most appear to be bipedal, although quadrupedal forms are common as well. Many also possess a large tail which may aid in balance. Most of them are also partially reptilian, and some have claws as well.
It is also worth noting that a large number of families in this Egg group evolve twice over the course of their development. Many Pokémon are capable of breeding with other Egg groups, but the number of Egg groups is fairly limited, with only four others.
