Pokemon Go is adding a new feature, and it lets you roam around with your favorite Pokemon, just like what Ash does with Pikachu. This new addition is called “Buddy Pokemon,” and let’s your chosen buddy follow you around wherever you go.
Here is the Pokemon GO Development team’s official statement on this new “Buddy Pokemon” feature they are adding:
It’s been a busy summer and, in addition to battling bots and fixing bugs, we’ve also been busy working on some new features for our Pokémon GO Trainers. As you know, we recently released the new Pokémon Appraisal feature, which helps Trainers identify which Pokémon has the most potential for battle. Today we wanted to let you know about a new feature for the game that is just around the corner.
The next addition to Pokémon GO will be Buddy Pokémon. You will be able to pick your favorite Pokémon from your collection to become your buddy, opening up unique in-game rewards and experiences. Buddy Pokémon will appear alongside your Trainer avatar on your profile screen, adding helpful bonuses such as awarding Candy for walking together. You’ll also have the ability to change your Buddy Pokémon at any time.
We’ve got a lot more in the works this fall. Stay tuned here for all the details.
Players can change their Buddy Pokemon at any given time, and they can also get rewards and get new experience… plus you can get plenty of exercise too!
