Pokemon Go Buddy System
The ever popular Pokémon Go app will be getting a new update soon. This update will add Buddy Pokémon to the game. The Buddy Pokémon system will make it easier and more fun to evolve a Pokémon of your choosing.
According to a post made on Pokémon Go creator Niantic’s Facebook page: A player will be able to pick one Pokémon to be their buddy. You can also change this Pokémon at any time to another Pokémon. Buddy Pokémon earn candy as they walk. They will walk alongside the player. So the more you walk, the more candy your buddy will earn. Which means they can evolve faster. (However it is unknown at this time, just how much candy they earn.)
All Pokémon that a player has caught, will be eligible to become a Buddy Pokémon. This feature will help take out the tedious work out of catching multiples of one Pokémon just to obtain candy for evolution.
