‘Pokémon GO’s Upcoming ‘Buddy System’ Is The Best Thing That Could Happen To The Game

Buddies are important. Everyone likes a buddy. You might even play Pokemon Go with your buddies. But don’t you wish you could actually have buddies inside Pokemon Go? Don’t worry — they are coming. The buddy system, a wonderful feature that will allow us to upgrade our pokemon by walking and searching for pokemon, looks like it’s coming to Pokemon Go soon thanks to some impressive data mining.

According to Pokemon Go Hub, the buddy system making its way to your pocket will allow you to choose a pokemon to “bond” with. Essentially, it’s another step counting gameplay system, with your chosen Pokemon walking along with you as you hatch eggs and capture endless Ratatas. But, with your buddy, you’ll be able to earn candy which means you can more easily power them up and upgrade your chosen friend.

Pokemon Go Hub has the details (head over there for even more info):

  • Walking your Pokemon Buddy will award you with candy. The amount of candy is yet to be determined.
  • You can walk the same Pokemon Buddy multiple times, but there is likely a daily limit for obtained candy.

Basically, this is you and your buddy.

It’s somewhat of a bummer to still be without trading and “real” combat, but this latest update will definitely allow you to carve out a stable of adorable monsters that you feel are truly yours. Now Niantic just needs to figure out what they’re going to do once those frigid, winter months keep trainers from trudging from pokestop to Pokestop.
