Niantic isn’t done with Pokémon GO yet, there are many more features to come and data miners are unveiling them one by one. Some of the fans have been checking the game’s code for clues on what Niantic may introduce and this time they found a new feature called Buddy System. We already know Trading, Incenses, and Legendary Pokémon will be coming in the future but what is this new Buddy System?
This system will allow a Pokémon to follow you around as you walk. It seems that the Buddy System will use the same distance calculation used for Pokémon eggs. The great thing about having a Pokémon Buddy is that you will be rewarded with a limited amount of candy on a daily basis. According to the findings, you can walk with one buddy at a time and the Pokémon Buddy can appear walking next to you or even on your shoulder.
Finally, we can expect the Buddy System, Trading, New Incenses, and Legendary Pokémon to be available in the upcoming updates. Stay tuned with our website for the latest news on Pokémon GO.
